A little background: Mid 2009 refurbished (Apple certified) MBP, been in for service multiple times. two failed HD's, two GSOD instances (one the day after picking it up from the first) a non-use related battery failure (service receipt included replaced wiring, confirming my suspicions that it had caused the failure) a trackpad failure, a spacebar/command key failure, and finally a system crash with 10.7 that bootlooped the system. I've had my fair share of problems with this notebook, which is somewhat disturbing. The computer is transported, but few and far between (the most activity being to and from school for a 3-month period every Thursday), the rest of the time it sits on a desk. My Apple care ends in roughly two days (estimated date is Sept. 1, no actual date specified), so i'm kind of pressed for time, with my already busy schedule.. . My "local" Apple store isn't exactly close by, it's an hour out-of-the-way (as in the only times I travel that direction are when I head to the Apple store) venture. Yesterday evening, I started noticing some video display failures. every so often (with increasing frequency) audio & video (such as YouTube, Hulu, crackle, and TVLand.com have to offer) will de-sync for noticeable amounts of time (10-15 seconds), often times the video will "freeze" and wait for the audio to catch up, however there have been the odd one here and there that will not re-sync unless the source is reloaded. this happens with both Chrome (beta 22.0.1229.26) and Firefox 12.0 (yes... very outdated, it crashes every time I try to update, so I figure so long as 12.0 works, i'll not bother with it) would this be a possible sign of GPU failure? something else I might need to take it in for? and if so, would that be covered under my Apple Care? (assuming that it isn't user-caused damage, which is unlikely, at best).
