    The screen sometimes flashes quickly to black and comes back to normal.

    I'm using the 9400 card.

    Anyone else experience this?

    it's the 2.66Ghz btw.

    Whoops, I see it's an inverter problem.

    My mistake, should've searched more.

    No it's not. It's a LED screen and not a LCD.

    Please disregard advice and knowledge as you see fit. A computer screen is more than a panel. The repair of the inverter is for the macbook screen. It's not for the macbook pro LED screen.

    I meant to say, power converter instead of inverter, my mistake.
