    Hi all,

    I originally posted this here until I realised it was an iMac forum, so here is my Macbook Pro forum repost.

    Symptoms are: Screen goes black after roughly 10-15 minutes of gameplay, sound gets stuck repeating whatever was playing at the time. Unrecoverable except through hard reboot.

    Only happens playing Starcraft 2, since roughly August. Prior to that Starcraft 2 had been fine (for over a year) and no other games or applications are affected.

    2010 Macbook Pro, specs per signature below.

    Extended hardware test turns up nothing.

    Reading older threads here and other sites leads me to believe this problem may be related to TS4088. Can anyone confirm or suggest other avenues of investigation?

    Partial error log attached:

    I'm sorry to say this. But playing games, even those suited for Mac's in general have a buttload of software issues. I usually get hundreds of extra FPS in SC2 when playing on Windows. Beats me why it happens.

    Took Macbook Pro to genius bar and they confirmed that the problem was indeed related to TS4088 and are currently replacing the logic board free of charge.

    Looking forward to get back into some serious SC2 very soon!
