Anyone encountered this screen when his/her mac cannot boot-up (Mac OS X 10.6.2)??
Did a restart fix it?
Did you try the steps explained here?
Mac doesn't boot
I would get yourself booked in with an Apple Genius, as to me that looks like a hardware problem.
I had did all the below before posted this screenshoot.
1. SMC reset
2. PRAM reset
3. Safe boot by holding down the shift key
4. Tried to boot-up with the install disk for Hardware test
5. Holding D to boot-up
6. Holding down Option key to select boot-up options
All these did not work, it always startup with the screenshot screen and then went white blank screen.
Graphical weirdness typically points to GPU issues.
I'd take it to a certified Apple Repair Center to have it looked at. I REALLY doubt it's software-related.
MAYBE if you have 3rd party RAM in there you could try going back to the Apple RAM that came with it to see what behavior change (if any) you get.
thanks, i suspect that the logicboard required replacement, but i was hoping someone has had the similar problem resolved without logicboard replacement.
As the two posters before me already alluded to, this looks like an issue with the actual GPU hardware.
Due to the fact, that that GPU was prone to fail (I assume you have the GeForce 8600M GT), Apple issued a program to replace those GPUs (the logic board really), even with MBPs out of warranty.
I agree. Software related issues would get fixed with the steps he already did.
unfortunately this is a late 2006 MBP... i am out of luck with the FREE logicboard recall.
+1. Definately seems to be a CPU issue. Apple's got your back on this one.
