It's been two days since, so early to make conclusions, but installed smc Fan Control and it really helped. My MBP is , warranty expired, so i'll go ahead and open it to see if the fans are blocked or dirty. I'll update on how this develops. If you find anything that helps please share! Nov 21, PM. Hi Drizziie. You might want to get the battery checked as that is just about where it is. Also your fans could be dirty.
You can then use compressed air to clean the inside and check if the battery is swollen or something. What solve my problem? I created another user, copied all my data from the old user to the new one, change permissions and ownership accordingly and everything is smooth as ever. Go figure! Nov 25, PM. Not sure if this will help your case Drizziie, but wanted to update on my case for everyone else experiencing similar issues.
I ran a hardware test but did not find any trouble. Finally decided to take it to the genius bar and after 5 minutes they found out that the problem was actually the video card as I suspected. They have a turbo hardware test that's only available in their private Genius Bar network. Long story short, they replaced my motherboard for free, even though my guarantee expired 2 years ago. What troubles me is how hidden the replacement program is. If I don't come across that article I would have end up spending a lot of money when the problem was on Apple's end [sigh].
Dec 16, PM. I installed back to Mavericks and the problem was gone Fan speed is increasing smoothly Then again an f resh new install of El Capitan and here we go again Mac Book is Overheating and shutting off I Stat Pro even cant control the fan anymore Watch out for them nice Apple updates when the MBP is shutting down and updating so any software u installed to control the fans is shut off. Mar 27, AM. You should be able to set the parameters in Istat Pro to turn the fan on and off at whatever temp you want.
If the fan is not working correctly do a SMC reset. To check that out open the utilities folder activity monitor and check for something using up CPU or Memory. Mar 27, PM. Mar 28, AM in response to my ginger In response to my ginger. SMC Reset was the first thing I've done Same Problem!!! Mar 28, AM. If you think that you have a problem with one or more sensors,run the hardware test in extended mode.
This will be on one of the install disks that came with the computer. It will give a code if a problem. Community Get Support. Sign in Sign in Sign in corporate. Browse Search. Ask a question.

I really think, no Im sure This is just my Opinion! They want to sort out the good old Mac books? EL Capitan But still u are not save for overheating Any ideas? Posted on May 22, PM. Page content loaded. Restart in Safe Boot mode by holding down the Shift key at startup. Safe Boot is quite slow because the OS performs some cleanup and verification tasks, so give it time.
After you're completely logged in, restart normally. Otherwise, download and run Etrecheck, then post the results here best to note that fact in post title. May 22, PM. Try the following to see if it helps:. This may allow your MBP to run normally, although it will have reduced graphics performance when performing demanding graphics tasks. The alternative is replacing the logic board, which is not cost effective on a machine that old, unless gfx does not resolve the issue and you really want to keep this MBP.
There is an acknowledged bug in the current version of Cody Kreiger's Open-Source gfxcardstatus, and the developer has confessed he does not have time to fix it right now. There is a fork off the main build by steveschow available that seems to fix that problem for current versions of MacOS such as ElCapitan and Sierra.

Using gfxStatus and using only onboard graphic processor. And everytime i turn to discrete it will split the screen, turn to blue, or only grey screen. To be honest im not afford to change my logicboard with that amount of money.
Same here, Macbook pro 15 Late Last friday it switched to a split screen, I had to do a hard reboot. I brought it in for repair, but I have read in the forums that replacing the motherboard is only a temporary fix, and the problem returns. This is awful, I became an iPhone developer recently, you can only develop for it with a Mac! Same problem here. I get a blue screen with black lines after a random time of use.
Seems to appear more frequently when using a beklin Thunderbolt dock and a second screen connected on it. I have the same problem with my 13 inch early Mac book pro! I paid money for a top of the line machine and have had a lemon from day one. It has finally gotten to the point where the computer is unusable, and of course not within warranty.
Your mileage may vary, void where prohibited. I am watching the blue screen for hours now. I use my MacBook Pro model to earn a living and it is dead. I bought it from apple completely refurbed and I am so frustrated and quite frankly screwed now. I installed my DJ software, restarted and crashed.
I had a Macbook Pro which had the Logic board replaced 2 times and the battery replaced 3 times. All they are is HYPE. There is definitely a need for a class action suit. Yup, happened on Saturday. Have a Dell Latitude from still running without any problem except the occasional battery change.
Windows 8. I am an attorney, and have the same model and issues as everyone else. What can we do? I was told that in certain circumstances when Apple sees many problems to certain models or certain hardware Issues they will put out a fix to even the people that are out of warranty like me mine expired in May. But they have see that it is a bigger wide spread problem not just a isolated incident. I have experienced such graphical glitches colored distortion and artifacts.
This is clearly a problem that happen at manufacturing and Apple should have made a recall on all models. It showed the gray Apple screen along with dark grey horizontal lines, then it showed another gray screen and that was all. At the same time the fans seemed to be working at top speed. Using boot camp as an alternate boot method, it showed the Windows loading screen with three huge vertical violet stripes and hanged there. Then after rebooting many times somehow magically came back to life and booted normally, but then in OS X it suddenly freezed and rebooted again with a kernel panic, showing the gray lines again after that.
Finally after another reboot it booted normally, and rebooted many times now and it seems to be working fine again. But I lost all my confidence in this machine, it is a time bomb! Please Apple do something!!! Yes, my macbook pro late died after 1. My first mac. So there is no point in repair. Throwing it in trash and never buy apple again is the best option. While I know that the logic board relacement seems to be the most common option, I have concerns that the fix is only tempory and that the problem re-occurs there are so many who report problems with replacment boards as well.
Recently I have been trying to research whether there is logicboard that suits the unibody yet does not have the integrated GPU? I can vouch changing the logic board does not fix the issue mine has been replaced 3 times within a two month period. They will not honor my warranty unless I drive 2 hours to a Apple Store rather than have them ship it to the depot which is the standard way to get a Macbook Pro fixed around here.
I called the store and they are just going to send it to the depot, the same one in Memphis that they have sent it to the last 4 times, they are just making it tougher and my warranty runs out in 2 weeks. I am going to take it to the Apple Store, and they will probably replace the logic board but just as you have noted that is simply a very small patch on a very large problem.
I do not think its the graphic cards alone, I think there are multiple issues given all issues that arise and in no particular order. After reinstalling the OS several times it did not fix the issues and they did not replace the machine. The airport dropped off so I learned to just reconnect it, the big screen monitor would disconnected without any warning.
I used the machine as a stationary unit rather than a laptop or any type of portability so the battery issues really did not bother me but the batter never fully charged and was always plugged in but the cable was always amber and never green.
The wires were in fact melted inside the machine according to one of the repair sheets that was sent to me so ALL wiring and cables were replaced due to melted wiring. At the very same time both fans were replaced as neither fan was working either.
It seems heat is a major factor of that there is no doubt. Its also been pretty much agreed upon the GPU having issues. My question is did any of you have any other issues you may have just blown off as a fluke, an annoyance that became more and more frequent, anything at all before the screen went haywire? I think there is far more to this than simply the GPU. My iMac has the exact same specs bought at the same time and I have no issues with it.
I have performed tests side by side and the Macbook Pro would eventually lock up or shut off while the iMac was able to finish the task as well as allow me to have other apps open so I could multi task. There is more to this than the GPU and that is where the focus needs to be by listing any pre GPU issues that may have not really seemed to be an issue but rather an annoyance that went on without a second thought until it became a major issue with locking up, freezing, over heating, and putting the blame on GPU issues.
Shortly after the first instance about a month and some attempt to edit video my laptop got very hot and crashed. Fortunately it was within the 90 day period they had given so they replaced the chip again. I am again using the gfx, and select indirect and not dynamic — in this way minimal control of which graphics card is being used. I posted this before.
Problem comes and goes every second day or so. I sent a letter to tcook apple. He ruled out the software angle. He suggested, and was backed up by the rep too that I take my Mac to a Mac savvy technician here in Israel, and see what HE says. All at my expense. Even worse, the solutions offered by Apple such as changing the Logic board, does NOT fix the problem. Hi, I have the same issue. Based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, it is fairly difficult to find a repair shop.
I some ways I wish the laptop would fail completely. It works some of the time but not others. My machine is still under warranty and I will try to send it to an Apple dealer. Been on chat several times with Apple. Macbook Pro late , Failed to work last December. Fail to start, just shows white screen with fans on high and warming un rapidly.
Temporal fixing by multiple restarts until GFX card status could be installed. Worked in native card for a few weeks, then just freeze and refused to restart. My first and last Apple laptop, this fine and expensive piece of hardware has been treated with extreme care since new, not even a scratch on it, no sun, falls, dust or spills on it ever, but now is dead,useless…. I hope Apple will address this problem soon, if not I feel this will be very damaging for Apple but do they care.
Mine has been at a repair shop for two weeks. I need my laptop to do my job. I would not like to break my long time relationship with Apple, but I have lost confidence in their products and service, which used to be the best. I hope Apple reads these posts. Been having this problem for about 3 weeks or so with my early Macbook Pro. Severe screen distortion after a few minutes, cleared on reboot. Two days later boots to gray screen after apple logo appears. Apple patrols their forums and deletes, edits, and bans users at their own will.
They still do delete posts however they are more likely to edit it at this point. I thought well hmmm so I went in through another post that I had in my folder and I got in and was able to scroll to that post and it said you can not reply, there is a old saved version of the post would you like to restore it?
I typed yes and the post came back. I am not really sure what they actually did but I think the post had been deleted and somehow, some way, going in through an old post link is a back door to reviving posts that have been deleted. The point is basically this, just because you post it on anything Apple runs does not mean it will remain there or remain there the way you wrote it. Apple still refuses to acknowledge it, they do not even respond for my Apple Care.
We made them rich and they have for many of us destroyed our businesses. I will never buy anything Apple again! As time has passed it became more and more frequent. I have boiled down my search to this thread. It seems like when it heats up a bit it somehow affects the graphics card my guess. What to do? Please help!! Glad I found this post. Having exactly the same problem. Split and distorted screen, and now the machine freezing, screen going black but not actually shutting down as reported below.
The machine is running better with just 4GB on what I think is the good module. Writing this post on my 6 year old Lenovo ThinkPad T61p. My system is a Windows 8 x64 Pro with Boot Camp 5. The problem also happens, even if rarely, at random without doing anything particular. Hi, Mine has had the same issue and have had the logic board failed twice in the last three months!
You are covered with or without it. There are 1 or 2 states here in the USA that also covers under certain situations whether you have Apple Care or not. I believe California is one. I believe it is some variation of what the UK has, it is not as straight up plain English no pun intended as what they have in the UK but they do have extra coverage over the rest of the US.
Many states also have listed in Apple Care that if your machine was in the shop, depot, Apple Store, otherwise not in your hands due to mechanical failures then all that time has to be added to the end date of the Apple Care. With that said they stopped honoring my Apple Care so adding several months to something they are not honoring is quite useless eh?
Having same problem Mac early — pink horizontal lines when starting up then it goes white. My MBP Early died last September after a few months of weird glitches which, at that time, I was not able to diagnose. Apple, failing to deal with this issue is bringing you down…! Same here.. Same problem.. It happened while i was watching a p movie then all of a sudden lappy froze, and when it rebooted everything went blue and couldnt get in to OS anymore.
This is the third time its happening. Anyhow its happening again, and Its a major drag because its rate of recurrance is getting shorter. I own an Early MacBook Pro. I replaced my logic board under Apple Care on March 17th , and yesterday that died again.. Less than 40 days after installing the new logic board, the component has failed again. Should I sell this MPB and upgrade while it still works? Did a hardware test no problems found. Turn on laptop screen freezes. GPU is screwed due to rubbish workmanship.
Apple should replace this known problem. We are not asking for new computers just to replace the known fault. It will only get worse for apple as users will feel cheated and think twice about buying a product with short life span and how your treated. The problem is it will take replacing the machine that is why Apple is not doing anything about it. Most people like myself while still under warranty had the logic board as well as many other components replaced only to have the very same issues reappear shortly after, and replaced several times over.
If you look at the models in question compared to the new models it is evident why the models in question are having the issues and the newer models lack most of the features the models in question have. They locked all the high tech high heat components into a body that could not cool itself even with an industrial cooling unit such as I had.
Therefore the GPU is the least of the problems, it is taking out the everything in the unit from heat issues. If they replace with the very same parts then the very same issues will come to light. The definition of Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Maybe Apple hired a medium and Jobs gave them the above tidbit of insight which is why they are not replacing the parts unless some poor unknowing sap slaps down the outrageous price only to have the same thing happen again in a few short months.
The fan is running high upon rebooting and only blank white screen is displayed. Tried all kind of resetting with no luck. What else can I say. They deserved to be bashed. My laptop has been doing the same thing for about a month — I have just replaced the apple supplied gb SSD with a normal drive and touch wood no crashes or lockups for two days. I had given up on the laptop so removed the ssd and put it in a usb caddy and used a mac mini for a week booting from the usb.
It was only when it also crashed with the same problems I used time machine to move everything to a standard drive. The internet is FULL of this info!!! My warrenty ends in August! And then what? Is this 14, Israeli Shekels 4. It just started after 3 years with no such issue.
My 3 year extended warranty got expired on this May so it is a little bit curious on the timing. Apple failed us a 2nd time by not owning up to their first failure and offering a cure at their expense. Apple really failed us a 3rd time by not forcing the video control back to the integrated Intel chip at every reboot.
This is the 1st Mac I have had a major problem like this and I have had a mac since I am VERY disappointed in apple. Steve Jobs I hope you are turning over in your grave listening to these posts of loyal Apple consumers.
This is an Apple problem. Same here, Pink anomalies all over the place, but just on laptops screen , not on a secondary Thunderbold display. Email this person — at Apple: tcook apple. Typically, you will not get a reply from Tim Cook himself.
It is, of course, not entirely unreported either. Your email will be read. Important emails may be forwarded to him personally. I do not know how many of you have gotten anywhere with Apple or just plain have written them off completely. The Macbook Pro in question is sitting in a corner and the iMac same configuration purchased at the same time as the Macbook Pro I have been using since the Macbook Pro died has now also died the very same death.
Most likely because it has the same parts in it. I am in talks with attorneys to begin class action suits. No heating issues at all and it handles all the music and photography apps I use. Their target is Engineers so it is your best bet at this point as far as I could determine. As for Apple… I will not even eat Apple Sauce I am so aggravated for the way they have handled or I should say not handled their faulty parts. The newer machines no longer have optical drives, very few ports, not much of a draw far as I am concerned but it stopped the overheating issues.
Apple knows there is an issue and knew it not long after they pumped them out which is why they change the GPU the later models. It is exactly what happened to me not long after my warrantee expired. Hello Everyone!
I have been battling this now for exactly one solid year. Those of you that have followed my posts here and on the Apple forums Most have been removed on the Apple Forum know that this issue goes much deeper than the GPU and screen images. I purchased a special order early Macbook Pro and a iMac with the same configuration at the same time. Replacing defective parts with the same defective parts certainly did not help the crisis.
After working around the issues for nearly 3 years which cost me a fortune Apple replaced the logic board 3 times within a 3 month period between August and November , as well as the airport twice, all cables and wiring 3 times due to visible heat damage to the cables and wiring , the optical drive 4 times, basically everything except the RAM was replaced.
Yet the issues remained. Apple had me jump through every hoop possible and most were unreasonable but I did it anyway. The OS was reinstalled more times than I care to remember. When I say it was reinstalled I mean it was formatted as was the external Time Machine drive and the OS reinstalled and all software was installed piece by piece as if it were a new machine.
Still the problems remained. The Macbook Pro has been out of commission completely and unusable since August Not only was the screen having issues but the USB ports did not have power, the Firewire port did not work the thunderbolt port kept dropping its connection to the big screen monitor, the airport dropped its connection to the network on a regular basis, the machine would reboot itself at random, it was running so slow I would type a paragraph then have to wait 10 — 15 minutes for the letters to show up on screen.
The heating issues were astronomical running over F on boot up and the boot up process took long enough for me to walk my dog and come back home and it still was not at the login screen. Keep in mind both my machines were under Apple Care at the time. I emailed Tim Cook and one of his assistants called me and told me the machine would not be replaced for the same reason it was not replaced when it was DOA because it was a replacement for a machine I purchased two weeks prior that was DOA with the same faulty issues.
Given it was the same make, model, year and configuration it was clearly a defective issue in the build of these particular machines. I was told to take it to an Apple Store given the mail in depot did not fix the issue even after replacing the parts. I do not live close to an Apple store so I called the Apple store and explained the situation and they said it was the logic board that required replaced and possibly other parts that were damaged due to the faulty logic board.
It was something they would have to send to the depot, the very same depot the machine had been sent to during that 3 month time frame. I did not have time to play games and jump through hoops as these are business machines. After some searching on the net I found this was a wide spread issue that Apple still has not addressed or even accepted that an issue exists despite all the complaints globally with identical problems.
The machines were still at this point under Apple Care and since I refused to take the machines to the Apple Store, because I do not live close and by talking to the store and being told they would send it to the depot, the same depot and white glove service it had undergone, Apple decided not to honor my Apple Care any longer.
Yet upon boot up with nothing running at boot up it shows only 1G or less of RAM. The Macbook Pro had been unusable but I was able to use the iMac until about 2 months ago when it too began to shut itself off, over heat, blue screen, video issues, show less than a GIG of RAM on bootup, an so on. I have found a Windows replacement in the Lenovo W however I will not lie the OS X operating system is far superior to Windows operating system however I can not run a business on defective machines nor can I justify paying the outrageous price tag for a Mac when they do not even stand behind their own workmanship and parts.
It seems as if most if not all Apple products are trailing behind all other manufacturers in the tablet, phone and computer race to the first place position. Many have written about several different ways of trying to fix the problem with the GPU and heating issues however after only a few short months they are plagued with not only the same issue but also the issues that were caused by the original issue that damaged so many internal parts that the machines are not much more than very expensive paper weights and Apple has no comment.
First the glass started to come off…ok fine…then it decided to start restarting itself…then that stopped on its own. Then it randomly shuts itself off. Then it will finally turn back on all the way the second time you do it. Same at me. MBP early I wonder why I have paid a Ferrari , and got waste At the end.
I had to change the logic board around two years ago, and the problem is now starting again. This is really annoying, and is making me go back to Linux PC for my next machine. I am in process of moving everything to PC Windows 8. These days buying an Apple product is simply paying a high price for a brand name which is in the toilet. I can not believe how bad Apple products and customer service has become and I for one will not pay one cent for the hassle, lies, bad, defective equipment and lousy customer service.
Disregard the bad reviews they are all related to the fact Lenovo changed the keyboard layout by adding a number pad which made the trackpad off center for the machine but it is centered under the keyboard. If you read all the reviews on the sites around the net you will see that is the reason for the 3 star average, it also notes in the reviews that if they removed the number pad it would be a 5 star product.
I bought two and given I use them in clam shell mode with an external keyboard, with a number pad, and mouse so the entire new layout on the laptop is moot for me as long as the machine is solid and it is. Additionally you can purchase up to a 5 year warranty which includes on site repairs as well as drops spills and accidents for the price of Apple Care on a Macbook Pro for 3 years which does not have the same perks.
As for the bad reviews, I am sure a good share of you are Slashdot readers and have seen this week where in California, and possibly other states, making it illegal for companies to remove the reviews they do not like or puts their product in a bad light. Apple STILL denies there is any issue with these machines and has made no move towards admitting the machines are severely defective.
Replacing the parts is not a fix because replacing defective parts with defective parts equals the same defective issues. The machines need to be replaced. Just started all of a sudden. During a photoshop save screen went black, but still backlit. Hard shutdown. Pixelated apple logo. Eventually screen with black and blue vertical lines. Had trouble booting from external drive. Finally booted from external drive and ran Disk Verify… no problems… then thick blue vertical lines.
Next day, unable to boot, then was finally able to boot again from external. Ran Disk Repair. Was able to boot from internal for first time. Performed Backup!!! Opening programs is really slow. I tend to not believe it is a hard drive issue as Disk Utility never found a problem. Also, I would not have had trouble booting from an external if that was the case. Ram is not the issue, so logic board seems to be the culprit. I purchased the 3-year applecare, but that is now expired.
Maybe I can find a cat somewhere. Any help here would be greatly appreciated, thanks. Apple knew exactly what was that there was a flaw in their product, and they just expect us to pay more for it.. Apple been going that way for a while now… Nothing is compatible with their products year after year… They call it pushing the consummation … others call it a rape.. We should start a fund sourcing or kickstarter.. This would be a great class action case and a few class action suits have been out there since Apple appears to be above the law as they forced the attorneys to remove all content written by the attorneys as well as victims of the flawed machines.
There has been no progress from the class action suit as far as I know. My machines were both DOA on arrival, there was no problem in getting the first one replaced and when the replacement came it too was flawed and I was told someone would contact me to setup another replacement. After waiting a week without any word from Apple I called back and was told they decided not to replace and I am sure by this time they knew of the issues and had replaced several machines only to have the second machines to also be defective.
Any attorney will the hoopla could make one hell of a lot of money if they took on the case and REALLY moved forward with it. There is plenty of information and victims out there now that would give more than enough weight to take this all the way. They need to push for total replacement with a different model because any replacement of the same model or replacement of parts does not fix the issue as the machines are lemons as are the parts so replacing defective parts with defective parts give you one thing, a defective machine that will not last.
I do not think any of us are asking too much, all we want is a working machine so we can continue with the work, school or whatever purpose the machine was purchased. I have not heard anyone ask for damages, which what Apple has put us through we deserve damages. Tim Cook made a major statement about our privacy and how much it means to Apple to safe guard our privacy. I am so sick of everyone talking about the privacy and anyone that buys into it is an idiot.
I want to see Tim Cook make a statement about these flawed machines and own up to it and make things right. I have read review after review and ALL of them came to the same conclusion, Apple has a long way to go to trump and compete with several other smart phones on the market.
Impossible to do any photo work. Every time I need something requiring even the lightest of graphics, even simple games through safari, the screen splits into a useless mess and starts geeking out. Went to the genius bar twice and they replace the logic board twice. Still the logic board fails after 3 weeks tops. The third time they just replace the whole laptop. What a waste of money. No protection plan and they all work fine. So far no DOAs. That apple laptop was my first time buying an apple and if apple does not do something soon we will all spread the word through social networks.
Just died yesterday, blue screen with vertical black stripes. When tried to boot from external linux screen works fine when in text mode, but dies when L tries to start graphical UI. I started having the problem for the past few months. My screen will just go black but the computer is still running. The only solution has been to perform a hard shutdown. There is no predictability when it will happen. It is very annoying. The system gets extremely hot before it occurs is the primary indicator.
I have sent the computer back multiple times for what seemed like overheating and each time the apple people would say it was normal. I run the hardware tests as soon as it happens and it is very hot and it always comes back with no problems found.
Very frustrating. I ended up getting a new computer that was not a mac because of this but would like to find a solution. It seems like Apple should make this right with so many complaints. Similar the battery issue I just got fixed under a replacement program for my iPhone 5. Everything is fine including the battery, but recently I have fine vertical red lines when the Apple logo shows at boot. This then results in a dead grey screen and spinning up of the fans.
I reboot and normally boot to the login screen with a quick flash of blocky video on the way. I can then use the machine completely normally. Youtube, Mail, Preview, Office etc. I thought it must be system corruption but hardware failure? We bought 3 mac book pros two are now paper weights — the third had the expensive logic board replacement but started having problems after the warranty on the replacement part expired.
The Apple store employees deny there is any major issue issue and were very condescending. The best fix for us was to not buy apple products anymore. That is exactly what I did. I have no idea why the attorneys have not jumped on this like flies on SH! I have saved emails from so many different forums, all different people, all around the world, same exact issues and Apple is sweeping it under the rug. Where is Erin Brockovich when needed? It will take a pitbull to take Apple down, well I think they will sink themselves as their products have steadily gone downhill since Steve Jobs, may he rest in peace, is no longer around to breathe life back into the company.
In his absence from the company last time the company was nearly bankrupt and he rebuilt the empire. I have said it a million times replacing defective parts with yet new but still the same defective parts is not going to fix the issue. The entire machine needs to be replaced with a different model period, end of story that is the only fix. After turning it on, the screen was slightly pink and apple logo appeared. However, from there it went back to blank grey screen and stayed grey. I connected an external monitor hoping that it is a LDVS cable issue or back light cable issue, but the external monitor showed some distorted vertical lines.
Yes logic board was gone. I got it from Apple store back in as a refurb computer, and it is my second Macbook pro which dies of logic board issue. Both of which has faulty graphic card issue. I am so tired of Apple making crappy laptop computer. I sitll love Macs so I will only buy desktop Mac from now on. No solution yet! I had a new mac air with the grey screen of death 10 days old whilst overseas in China.
Their then freshly opened store in Beijing swapped it out on the spot. Same thing motherboard. I think their massive profitability is their no1 not their quality anymore. Another victim of the MBP scam. I paid 2, for a machine that only lasted 2 years. Bougth it on march On October 20 , bye, bye logic board. It was replaced. Today october 27, again bye, bye logic board, and bye, bye mac, since I no longer have apple care and spending money fixing it is not worth it.
Especially knowing that it will break again. Yup, forth. Sent it for repair once under Apple Care and it lasted 6 months after. It broke again after my Apple Care expired and after a few repairs attempts by third party repair shop, it is totally bricked unless I want to replace the logic board.
Is there any way to somehow able to boot up the MacBookPro like a server, i. At least in this way I can still use the darn machine to crunch number. Time to cut loss. This just started today. Is this just happening in Mavericks? Then I talked to a local computer repair shop and was told to say a few sentences and under fair trad, warranty or no warranty, they would have to fix it,. Either you used faulty parts when manufactured or u did not assembly correctly.
It looks like I am having the Gpu problems everyone else is having on here! This could be my last Mac. Good luck!! Just recently started having these problems. Started with blue screen and vertical black lines. Now the screen just goes grey and freezes with NO warning. The only way to clear it is to reboot in single user mode and run fsck -fy.
This fixes the issue every time until the next sudden failure. Is that just forcing the laptop to not use the AMD graphics card? I have been complaining about this computer to apple since day one and they never replaced … very disapoined. I have an early MacBook Pro 13 in.
I have the Intel HD graphics It straitens out after a reboot! Just started doing this in the last few weeks. Have had since new. Never been misused! I thought at first it might be software, not sure now. Have the latest up dates as of ,07, Yjuzqn tadalafil spline receptors Plaquenil. Your email address will not be published.
