    Hi, I've a macbook pro mid 2010 that have had videoproblems as described here:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4088

    My computer restarted and displayed a kernel panic-message.
    I went to my local apple store and they changed the logic board without cost covered by the program.

    I've now used my mbp with the new logic board 4 days and I've experienced a black screen and a restart is needed for the mbp to work again. Latest time I was gone 10 min from my computer and the display was set to rest.

    My question is, is it possible that I still have the problems described in the program even when I've a new logic board?

    The genius at AS did some test, I suspect that he checked the RAM to.
    They can't miss a bad ram can they?

    Bad RAM doesn't always show up until you run tests a lot.

    If it passed, then your ram is probably ok. Bad ram can cause crashes though, so it was good to run the test to eliminate that possibility.
