    hello all,

    I have a macbook pro 15.4 that broke down, not unibody but quite recent 2 years or so. Not the first release.

    I turned it off one night and the next mornining screen wont react, even ataching a screen to it nothing. Both screen no reactions.

    I can use it remotely though, login, browse all in remote via LAN.

    There must be just a subtle problem in my mind for:

    A: maybe repair it?
    B: some parts still working, sell on as used on ebay?
    C: any other ideas what to do with it? :)

    thanks to all in advance for any ideas on the matter!!!

    It's probably this problem.

    If it is, you're in luck as there's a warranty extension programme.

    Guy just bring that sucker in. The worst they can say is no. You'll have greater luck over the phone because the guys in Texas are a little looser than the nerds in the store.

    It's an nvidia issue, btw. It's warrantied as mentioned earlier.

    Just for the hell of it, use your computer in remote mode and go to apple logo/about this Mac and click More Info to open system profiler.

    Then go to Graphics/Displays. Instead of the Geforce 8600M GT does it say that you have an Intel GMA X3100 or something?
