    Sometimes when I use my mbp, it will randomly freeze up, show weird lines on the screen and beep, even if the volume is turned all the way down. Here is a video I recorded last time. What could it be? Also, my MDP port is really finicky. By the way, it is the MBP in my sig. It hasn't happened in a month expect for last night and today now. It has probably done it a total of 5 times.

    very odd that it doesnt happen more often, looks like hardware like your video card but than youd think it happen more often

    Yeah I agree, and something else I have noticed, every time I restart my mbp, it'll always start up with a finder window open that is opened to a Mac OS (system) folder.

    I have the same issue with my mbp. I notice it happens when I am editing my photos for a long period of time, or if I am transfering photos from my computer to an external hard drive. I wish I knew what was going on!

    Even if it only happens once or twice a months it is still faulty hardware. Send it in along with some more evidence and an explanation and they should repair/replace it.
    If you are out of warranty you might be out of luck as aside from trying to do a clean reinstall of OSX there is really nothing you can do that can possibly change. It could be some corrupted driver. An OSX reinstall would solve that but I would put my money on simply fault hardware.

    It's funny you say that because I was working with aperture and an external too around the time it happened.


    It's a 2011, so warranty isn't an issue, but I did upgrade the ram to 8GB and it's a moments xt hard drive, so I don't want to lose those things if I turn it in. Not to mention, I need it for school daily.
