    Do you have an nVidia 8600 GT graphics card? Use System Profiler in Applications > Utilities to check.

    I saw another thread here recently and the person had the same problem; however yours looks a little worse than his. He returned it and is now quite happy.

    At least this problem was acknowledged and is covered. The only problem is downtime, which can be a real headache for some.

    Those are known to be faulty. Call Apple.

    Dang... unfortunate for you. Don't worry, Apple will fix it quick and speedy. You'll be up and running back to normal soon.
