Display Problem
 
When I start my Macbook Pro the screen displays this:

Any advice? (apart from taking to get fixed). It had been having startup problems recently and I had to fsck is a few times. It had worked since but now does this. I cannot now get into safe mode or single user mode.

If I do need to take it somewhere any recommendations in London?

You didn't mention the year\model of your MBP. Certain models had a known problem with the GPU for which Apple extended the warranty.

The other startup problem you mentioned (besides the graphics) could be related to a failing hard drive. It might be a good idea to backup all your data as soon as you can. Hopefully someone will suggest a repair shop in London where you can have your MBP looked at.

Regards.

Thanks. I got it new in summer 2007. I'll have a search for this known problem.
