    Help Please! Hey I like Green Apples, but this does not look good

    I need some help with my late 2011, 4gb memory, 500gb hard drive Mac Book Pro. I’ve had problems in the past, the hard drive failed only after 3 months from purchase date.

    Now this thing started 2 weeks ago, I turned it off in the night and started it up in the morning to find an Green Apple Logo Screen and after loading it goes to a blank screen.

    That’s it no matter, what I do, restart, turn off and I trying safe booth and trying to re-intstall Mavricks lol that was not pretty (It looks like an old crash windows computer) It had no information on it.

    Pretty much it is a paper weight now and I need some help.

    Many Thanks

    Something seems seriously wrong with the computer, possibly hardware. I'd take it to the Apple Store.

    Sounds like the AMD GPU issue. Should be covered by Apple even if your computer isn't under warranty anymore.

    2011 MBP - most like the GPU since these are failing left and right :(

    I just had this happen on my Late '11 about two weeks ago. Contact Apple, though keep in mind that there's no official replacement policy in place. The fix here is almost always a logic board replacement, which was quoted for me in the $300 range if I didn't still have warranty time remaining.

    When my 3 logic boards died with this same issue it was a blue apple. Great to see differentiation! I paid $300 depot repair with the first one, apple covered the other 2.
