    A friend of mine took in his MBP to the Apple Store yesterday to have his non-functioning iSight fixed. The Apple Genius took his laptop in for repair and told him that he also has one of the bad nVIDIA GPUs and that they would replace the graphics card for him while they were working on the iSight. Is the Apple now willing to replace the graphics cards without suffering from issues? Can we walk into a store without any problems and just request the graphics card be replaced?

    No, they are required to run the Graphics Processor Test ....

    So it sounds like no repair unless the machine it too damaged to run the diagnosis, fails the GPU test, or has symptoms seen on that kbase document.
