    Hi guys,

    yesterday I started my (old) Macbook Pro up and the first gray screen with the apple logo looked like a chessboard. The next screen was a blank light gray screen, then a light blue screen and then this as in the picture attached. Has anyone an idea what's wrong with my mac and maybe a solution for this?

    Already many thanks in advance!
    Thomas

    Looks like your GPU is on the way out...you don't give the exact model but it looks like an older Mac....Ifixit would probably have the parts and a walkthrough if you want to do the job yourself, but it may well mean a new Logic Board.

    It's indeed an old mac, six years old. Are you sure it's hardware related?
