    Hi team.
    I have a poorly macbook Pro. late 2011.
    It turns on, normal chime, normal fan, boots, then after about 15 seconds shuts itself down.
    What I have tried so far.
    Reset Pram
    Reset SMC
    tried from my other mac same year, different battery, hard drive, memory.
    Tried it with battery, or battery out with just power in.
    all the same result.

    However if i have no hard drive in, or no external bootable hard drive attached it stays on but obviously shows the flashing folder... ? as soon any drive put in and I've tried 2 drives, and 2 external bootable. shuts down after 15 seconds...
    umm stuck..

    any ideas appreciated please.

    How far is it booting? Are you able to get into the OS? What screen is last up before it shuts down?

    hi it does not get fully into the Os, as it shuts down after 10.15 seconds, no chance to load in.
    tried it again now with no hard drive attached and sits there happy flashing folder..

    ----------

    also tried a different hd cable to logic board, in safe mode. same result..
    ahhh.

    any other ideas appreciated

    What is on the screen prior to it shutting down? Is it the gray screen with the Apple logo? Spinning wheel? Desktop background? Blank screen?

    Looks like Radeongate hit your MBP.
