    check the activity monitor and see what's being used heavily.

    exactly 'what' did you upgrade?

    clean out your computer with a can of duster, the vent is behind the hinge where the screen meets the keyboard.

    Hi,

    I was wondering if its safe/ good idea to download the new Yosemite update on my Macbook Pro 2011 which has recently started to suffer from graphics card failure?

    The problem is especially evident at the start up, generally my mac will shut down when asleep and when I attempt a normal startup I will get a pink screen.

    I have found that this can only be resolved by attempting multiple different startups (verbose, sing user reboot, NVPRAM, SMRC...) until it switches on again to a blue/ grey scree.

    Do you think I should attempt to download Yosemite? or will it only cause further problems....

    Since the problem has nothing to do with the software, it can't really damage anything. A failing GPU would fail even if you'd manage to put Windows 95 on your machine.

    I would assume the OP upgraded to Yosemite.
