    Hey guys,

    So as some of you guys may know, my laptop was in repairs for noise issues. It took 6 days and the noise isn't fix and to make matters worse I ran a heat test and when my computer gets to about 65 degrees from sitting on my bed i get this screen below. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I have apple care so my only question is do you think they will replace my laptop? cause this is getting riduclous

    It usually requires three major repairs before they'll consider replacing it. If you search around the forums a bit, there are threads about what it took for Apple to replace peoples machines.

    Take it back in immediately and be firm, but polite. I would focus on how you were impacted by not having the laptop for six days and that you find it unreasonable that should go without much longer given the original problem was not addressed and a new problem was introduced. Simply ask what can be done to put this issue to rest so that you go on happily using your Apple.

    They can arrange to have it serviced via mailing it back and forth. That usually only adds a few days to the amount of time you'll be without it.

    Have you tried to connect MB to TV via MDP, to rule out NVidia problem?

    If that works, you can use your MB like Mac Mini with keyboard and magic trackpad included!
    :cool:

    Hm, they say MDP to VGA is not a trusted connection.
    If you can get MDP to HDMI just to try, it would be nice!
    Can imagine your pain :(

    Think you have to rule out NVidia, I had a problem with inverter, and the whole screen had to be replaced, and that was in those first 365 days, no :apple:care in my courtyard:cool:
