I got my 2010 MBP new from my school and recently graduated. Now I notice that my motherboard is dying. The Computer will go into this state where the screen turns off and the sound stops, but the front light stays on. so I need to force power off. This is becoming more and more frequent and at very unexpected times. sometimes I'll have numerous programs running and really stressing it out but it does not have any problems, while other times no programs will be open and I go to make a new folder and it just shuts off. My problem is that computer has very expensive software on it (from school). If I just get a new laptop, There is no way I can get that software onto it. Is there any way to fix it (affordably) without losing all my software? or possibly get a new laptop and replace the harddrive with my current harddrive? I'm open to any affordable solution.
