Recently my 13 inch mid 2012 macbook pro decided to not function properly. It all started when one day when I opened it up and the screen was black. It was left on. Nothing displayed but the power was on and the fan would turn all the up. So I did a pram and smc reset. That didn't work. Then I opened the bottom up, took the battery out and put it back. This got the computer to start up properly. The graphics displayed and it seemed fine. But then it wouldn't stay on and it would constantly turn off all of a sudden. This happened multiple times. Then it would go back to not starting up, just the black screen. And back and forth with starting up, shutting off all of a sudden, black screen, fan up high . I had some people look at it. Went to the apple store and they looked at it. They didn't say much at all expect they could do a flat rate repair for $430. That would fix everything that was wrong with it with stuff I mention below. But the main point was to replace the logic board. Another thing I should mention is that I did drop it one time. Six months into having it, it fell from my bed. This caused cracks that span the screen, trackpad doesn't click down, and it makes clicking and popping sounds coming from inside. This doesn't cause the computer to not function right though. Yet one day, 1.5 years after I dropped it, it decides to do what I previously mentioned. Then I decided to reinstall mavericks but that didn't fix anything. Then I erased everything on it and installed mountain lion. It turned off all of a sudden only once so far and now its working as it did, perfectly fine, before the black screen ordeal. In the time that it was being screwy, i was looking into buying a new one. I was actually excited because I had an excuse to get a new one. Most likely a 15 inch one. So will this computer decide to **** itself again out of nowhere? Should I go buy a new one? I'm in a weird situation because there will be a sales tax holiday the weekend after this one and if I'm going to spend a good amount of money I'd rather spend it on a tax free day. I could go to new hampshire but that would be really out of the way. What is your suggestion? Thanks for the help!
