No, it has to be purchased within 1 year of purchase.
what graphics card?
It has to be purchased and registered with in the 1st year. It will cover things like timecapsule if they are purchased with in the 2 years that is what you are seeing in the screen shot.
What link? Make sure you're not looking at AppleCare for iPhone or iPod, which is 2 years. Macs are usually 1 year.
From the same page:
The two years refers to this, from the AppleCare Protection Plan Terms and Conditions:
If you look closely
AirPort Express Base Station, AirPort Extreme Base Station, or Time Capsule2
has to be purchased with in 2 years of the mac.
what is wrong with the computer if it does not display video it might be covered?
It won't be covered.
In the US, you can't add AppleCare after 1 year. If you're in a different country (which appears to be the case), that may not be the case.
The OP is in the UK, and it's the same everywhere: 1 year.
Re:Apple Care question about broken MBP
If your graphics card is NVIDIA 8600GT then you are lucky, if you bought your mac less than 2 years ago apple might repair your mac for free because a lot of NVIDIA 8600GT graphics cards are faulty and NVIDIA knew about this and didn't tell anyone, so NVIDIA pays apple for any mac that has a faulty graphics card to fix the mac. If your macbook pro turns on but has a black screen try waiting 30 minutes, or reboot the mac 10-15 times. My macbook pro shows a black screen but it goes away after i reboot it 15 times.
You cant get applecare now. However if u used a credit card for purchase, check with them. Here in US mastercard amex etc usually extends mfr warranty by one yr for certain cards. Give it a shot.
Take it in. Its the 8600 and im pretty sure they will replace it for free because it is only 18 months old
All is not lost as you are in the UK - if you can prove that it is a DEFECT in the product and not your fault, Apple still have to correct it under the Sales of Goods act.

If it is the nvidea 8600 gt it will be covered. If it is anything else it wont be.
They cover the 8600 for 3 years from date of purchase with or with out applecare.
The OP already said it was his logic board, not the NVIDEA 8600.
