    I have a late 2011 15" MacBook Pro with 2.4 GHz CPU and AMD 6770M GPU. The GPU is dying and I want to get it repaired.

    I found some listings for repair service on ebay, but I don't know what the part number for my MBP is.

    Is it any one of these?

    * A1286 820-2915-B
    * A1286 820-2915-A
    * A1286 661-6162 661-5852

    Or is it something else?

    Depends.
    The first listing is a 2.3 GHz model, the two last listings are the 2.2 GHz model, seemingly having no difference using a quick www search.

    Maybe use your Mac's serial number and ask the seller of the repair services, what option you should choose?

    The serial number will not make your computer be easier to steal, it is just a number with the exact model specs and when and where it was build. You can look up all the information stored in your serial number here: www.appleserialnumberinfo.com

    My MBP has the 2.4 GHz CPU. I actually did ask the seller a few questions, including which part number was applicable for my MBP, but he did not answer that question. Maybe it doesn't matter, maybe he'll know what to do when he receives the MBP. But I just don't want to risk having him install a new 6750M GPU when it should be the 6770M GPU.

    Try going directly through this site, as they seem to have a very good reputation for providing quality repairs on these Macs.

    That site only seems to reball GPUs. The seller on ebay says he will install a brand new GPU. I'm not sure if the GPU on my MBP has been damaged from overheating, so seems like a brand new GPU would be the better option.
