    Read up here. Just take it to one of the Apple stores in the area and they should fix it for free if it was bought less than 4 years ago.

    If it is linked back to the known issue with the faulty GPU then Apple will replace it. They do this to avoid becoming collateral damage for using the defective part. If for what ever reason an apple employee give you a hard time, call apple and refer to the documentation saying they will repair issues related to the faulty GPU. Seems the corporate help line is more knowledgeable on most topics than the Apple store employees.

    Ok thanks my cousin took the MBP to an apple genius and they fixed the MBP and say it wasnt th GPU but the bad thing was the CPU and they fixed the MBP without a cost...
    Im going to wait till i got the MBP cause she said it doesnt turn on with the charger (chinese one) but I told her to take it back to the genius in apple and test the MBP so we can be sure if is the charger or not cause i think to buying an battery...
