    Let me guess. You have an MBP with an 8600M GT. If so, your GPU failed an you need to go to an Apple Store genius bar/Apple Authorized service center.

    And what about this more probable guess or warranty or Apple Care, though the 8600M GT situation will be solved by Apple even without Apple Care?
