This is happening to my 2007 macbook pro.

It glitched out a two days ago for the first time, the entire screen looked like it turned into an Atari game. I shut down, restarted, it was still wiggy, so I restarted again and it was fine.

Then yesterday it went bonkers. I can't even get past the white loading screen when I turn on my laptop. It will act like it's turning on, but the apple insignia is glitchy and then it freezes. It is totally unresponsive except when I press the volume buttons I can hear the volume change. Which leads me to believe that the computer is still functioning but the screen video is unresponsive.

I can't even check the specs on it because I can't get past the loading screen. I had no time to retrieve files or anything.


This thread is seemingly the same problem, with a different mac and a picture of the issue: http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/apple-desktops/241602-my-imac-early-2008-video-display-glitches-hard-freezes-help.html


Is my laptop totally screwed? I'm going to try and go to the nearest Apple store on Tuesday. I opened it up and replaced the LCD screen back in January. It worked fine since then so I doubt I messed anything up.

Got any ideas? This means I'm without a computer.

Read this KB article from Apple. LINK If you think your 2007 MBP falls into this category, take it on in to your local Apple Store or give them a call. You may be eligible for a free repair.

Wow, that's exactly my model. I just got it to boot and I have that graphics processor they're talking about, and it was built in July 07.

I'll give the Apple Store a call and see what's up. Hopefully I can get it fixed or something. Thanks a ton!
