    Good day.
    I have a problem with my MBP, and its very irritating.
    Every time I run Photoshop, Indesign etc, the screen turns black. And the computer stops working. The same thing happens when I use "expose" and the webcam.
    I've also had problems connecting my mbp to an extern screen, via the dvi-mini. The same thing happend then, and sometimes the screen started to flicker.
    I've also recently replaced my motherboard, because of a malfunction.
    Anyone who maybe knows whats wrong? Or have had the same problems?

    What a bummer, last time it took them (the guy in the basement at my local macstore) 6 weeks to fix it. I've been more or less not wanting to go back there, but maybe thats the only solution.

    Thanks for the reply thou, first answer ever in all of the mac-forums I've written in so far!

    Is this a 15" mid 2010? I just found out yesterday there's now a quality program on this model for this issue. It has to fail a specific test, but if it does, the issue is covered, even if the machine is out of warranty, for two years from the purchase date.
