after using my 2011 2.2 mbp 15 flawlessly for 3 months. it just died while i was using it. i havr upgraded kingston memory and corsair ssd myself. i will try to get replacement today. i am assuming that it was the incompatibiity of the ssd or the memory. but why now? ive been using this flawlessly?

What do you want us to do about it? We can't run diagnostics from here. Maybe if you gave up more information then we might be able to help, but since it's new and you (hopefully) haven't voided your warranty, you should just take it into the Apple store.

hi

my macbook pro died while i was using it. it was running then when i plugged my ipad usb in the usb port, bam! it died instantly. never turn on again, tried hitting power button no hd noise, just dead. i even pressed the battery indicator on the side but no life shows up. i just got back from genius bar now and they said will take 3-5 days to diagnose it. they will only cover the
damages of non accidental ones. i am surprised they didnt replace it on the spot. i am hoping my ssd isnt dead as i spent a little fortune on it. i feel naked without my mpb its terrible that i have to wait.

You should have taken out the RAM and SSD before bringing it in. If they decide to replace it, they will not install your parts in the new machine.
yes thats what i did. hopefully this wont void the warranty. ill keep it posted when i hear from them.

The Hard Drive and RAM are considered User Upgradable, it will have not voided your warranty, though you did the right thing putting the original parts back in.

I'm sure they will find the cause of the problem and have your MBP back to you before you know it.

Good for you. Looking back, there really was no need to start this thread now, was there?

There is really no need for your comment. Why don't you start your own forums where only questions are allowed that are of immediate importance for the general public?
Well...because there is no need for me to do that. I'm perfectly happy reminding people here to post useful threads. Nothing wrong with that, and it doesn't mean I need to start my own forum either.

Don't mind me just posting a pointless comment in a pointless thread.
