Has the GPU in your MacBook Pro died? Post your MBP and how many times it was replaced.
you dont have a second screen named jjahshik32 do you?
but no, ive had mine for a year and its perfect
No thats not me, why do you ask.
Haha very fun (being sarcastic).
Anyway I've had my mbp for 2 months now with no problems or any heat issues.
you haven't seen his numerous posts on the dieing Nvidia GPUs?
he only has about 50
edit: oops i voted wrong
No...havent really noticed. I sorta stopped reading that articles. I am now after to see how many people have had problems and what model they have.
I see what you mean now, maybe trying to get more posts...
Wow you took a screen shot of my threads, good job.
The only hardware problems I've had here are with LED backlights.
LED problems > GPU problems
indeed, and what do we see here?
that you are paranoid about the nvidia thing, just chill, there hasn't been a huge amount of people with dieing GPUs lets just see how it all plays out before freaking out
Thanks for the thread, but this doesn't stop him from whining about his perceived dead GPU.
Nice results though: IT SEEMS THAT "100% OF THE GPUS WILL DIE IMMEDIATELY OMG" isn't accurate. Surprise!
haha this thread is kind of funny!
Well the 8600m gt are only a year old from the last year's mbp.
Also just because its only been 3-4 months from this year's mbp having no issue doesnt mean they all wont in 2-3 years.
Just a random thought:
Does the chicklet keys allow heat to go through them? Maybe that explains why the macbook/air dont get AS hot...and why the MBP might be rumored to move to chicklet keys...
Should not have anything to do with the keys. The macbook and macbook air do not have dedicated graphics card..the purported source of heat.
I think you should edit the thread title to "GPU Glitched" rather than dying. All of the MBP I've used that has an nvidia GPU in them had some form of glitch or another. NONE has died.. YET.
I voted that my 2.2 died but so did my 2.6 SR.
Hmm, yeah well I'd say its an issue at this point but not a mass problem with all the MBPs, mines in the mail... so hopefully it'll be ok.
My old 2.2ghz with 128MB died. It was running fine for over 6 months when around X-mas I got Command and Conquer 3 as a gift. I played it a lot and after a couple of weeks I started getting graphics corruption. It started off infrequently and fixable, but ended up happening practically everyday and I couldn't get it to go away.
Its since been replaced by a new 2.2ghz with 128MB so now I'm a little worried.
I have the Late 2007 'Merom' Macbook Pro and my GPU started artefacting requiring a hard restart when doing anything graphical related.
It was only 9days before the warranty expired so I suppose I consider myself lucky. I bought Applecare while I was there incase it happened again and considering I do a lot of video editing and heavy rendering I'm surprised it didn't fail sooner.
Mobo was replaced and so far no problems (apart from the Airport playing up again - but that's nothing new). It actually feels like its running a little faster than before.
Remember that the GPU has only been in MBPs for about a year...so even early adopters have only had it for at most a year. Most will have had it for less. Just because we don't see a huge failure rate, doesn't mean we won't...
I have an SR 2.2 (128 Vram) MBP from September 2007. No failure yet, but I get temperatures that are consistently at least 10C higher than my CPU temps (even while just surfing the net and listening to music).
No notable problems yet with my penryn 2.4, but I have had a lot of kernel panics with this thing, an abnormally high amount now that I think of it. I have applecare, so I'll wait until something happens to take it in. GPU runs constant temp with my CPU: 46-53C
i switched out my logic board once, but i'm not sure if it was due to the gpu. had some sort of error when installing the firmware update a few months back.
2.2GHz mobo replaced after GPU issues when my MBP was 11 months old
