There are some issues with the Macbook Pro I own. Basically its a 'Santa Rosa 2007 Model', yes the model that's renowned for its faulty NVIDIA Graphics chip. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2377 However I am unable to convince Apple that I have one of these faulty Macbook's, as I have taken it to them twice now & they refuse to accept that this is due to a faulty NVIDIA graphics chip. I have until next Sept 2010 to convince them, that is when the extended recall warranty runs out. I have taken a few pictures of what I am experiencing for the last year, this issue started just after the initial 1 year warranty that you would get with any electrical item that is brand new. On boot up, you hear the 'chime' then the black & white stripes appear & nothing else happens. On the odd occasion the machine actually boots up as it should, Apple logo etc & works ok ? On another note I also have a boot camp partition with windows on it, so I tried to boot into windows. With the black & white lines appear on the screen I 'HOLD' down the 'ALT' key which initiates the boot up chioce menu & the screen should show 2 hard drive icons, but it doesn't. I just go through the motions anyway, when timed correctly & press 'ENTER' the screen goes black as if it were booting into Windows, after a while the Windows boot up 'chime' is heard - but nothing appears on the screen in this mode. However the 'CAPS LOCK' & 'NUM LOCK' keys on the keyboard illuminate ? Has anyone any else experienced this & if so how can I convince Apple that I have a FAULTY machine due to the FAULTY NVIDIA CHIP ? This machine in total has only been used a handful of times & as mentioned the problem started occuring around 14 months after initially buying in 2007. Any useful help would be grateful, thanks for reading.
