    Hey guys

    Just a quick question. My friend has a MBP 17" (early 2007/ mid 2007) that has died. I seems to have the classic Nvidia 8600m GT issue.

    He has a few files that need backing up, I am planning to target mode the computer to get the few files that he needs. I just wanted to check that I can still use target mode a computer that has a died GPU. Any ideas?

    If the only failure is the GPU then it should work.

    Give it a shot..
