    It seems the GPU has gone bad in my MBP. I'm curious about what I can, and should do now.

    2.4 MBP purchased July of 2007 (aprox. 1.5 years ago)

    Stories I have read on forums suggest something can be done about it as long as the MBP was less than 2 years old when it went bad (even without Apple Care). Is this true?

    If so, does anyone know what hoops I need to jump through in order to get the ball rolling?

    Any insight would be great. I'm really up against the wall right now.

    Apple has extended the warranty for this issue i think for an extra (2-3 years??) so they should fix it out of warranty

    Take it to the nearest Apple store. If that's too far, go to your nearest Apple Authorized Service Provider.


    "If the NVIDIA graphics processor in your MacBook Pro has failed, or fails within two years of the original date of purchase, a repair will be done free of charge, even if your MacBook Pro is out of warranty."
