    Hi,
    New to the forum, purchased a used MBP 2.4 17" yr2008 8600m and recently have had graphics corruption and lock up. Attached is a picture of the corruption. Sometimes it will boot and I'm able to use for 5 to 10 minutes until complete corruption and lock up. Any ideas of the cause or is my baby dead?
    Thank you

    Thanks MisterKeeks,

    I looked at that and hope they will look at it even though I was not the original purchaser. Have my doubts tho :(

    They should. However, it's not certain how long a replacement would last. For that reason, this blogger sued Apple, and won.
