    Hey everybody,

    Long time lurker on the forum yet have never needed to sign up untill now!

    I purchased a MacBook Pro in august 2007 from a retailer and have had nearly two years of trouble free computing. However i have recently encouted some serious problems with my system. Erratic behavior, over heating, scrambled screen and the inability to boot most of the time. At first i suspected a softwear fault yet after these symptoms continued after a fresh instal of osx i fear that is not the case. After some research on the internet i can see that the problems i am facing are pointing towards the gpu failing. Now, i do not have applecare on my system but was wondering; if i were to bring my system to be serviced at a apple retail unit and the problem was indeed a faulty GPU, would i be expected to pick up the bill?

    I understand that if the problem proved to be anything eles i would have to pay for the repair,yet considering that the chip has been deemed to be faulty what would be the outcome of such a service on my system?

    Thank you all and i look forward to reading your replys,
    Ahmet

    If they found the GPU to be faulty, you would not be charged for the repair.

    That's good news, i take it however that if the logic board is faulty then i would have to pay?
