A couple of days ago I had to force shut and restart my MacBook Pro during a routine software update - I was downloading java at the time i think. The screen was hanging there and I had no alternative. Since then I haven't been able to log back into my MacBook Pro for longer than five and that only happened once time - long enough to complete the software update and run disc utilities repair. During the repair it crashed again and I had to force quit and shut everything down. I'm forced to continually restart and now the graphics are beginning to fail. The picture looks similar to a Scottish kilt, horizontal and vertical lines of various colours - pink, green, red, black, blue etc. I've tried restarting in safe mode - don't work. Restarting holding down C, D, SHIFT, CMD S and running through /sbin/fsck -fy etc.... nothing works. My MacBook Pro is a month or two shy of two years - has anyone else experienced this, can anyone offer genuine advice other than buy a new one. I got a new MacBook in the flat but there's no firewire port to salvage my files off the old Pro. Pix attached. Any help greatly appreciated.
