    I've got a mid-2010 MBP with NVIDIA GT 330m i7 2.66GHz

    I've had this problem for a while and didn't think it serious enough to contact Apple, maybe that was a mistake.
    Anyway I keep seeing this (image below) all the time using any browser (mainly Safari or Chrome) and a hell of a lot when watching videos.

    Any ideas what the problem is, or anyone with similar issues? I've noticed it on every OS X since Snow Leopard.


    ... and as I was making this post! :mad:

    GPU failure.

    There was a repair program done by apple for these particular GPU's a couple of years ago for this issue. I'm afraid that scheme is now finished.

    A third party apple repair place may well be able to do something but thats your best bet.

    You're going to have a hard time selling a computer with a failing graphics card unless you are very dishonest or sell it for parts.
