    He used to do this kind of work that entailed actually reballing or completely replacing a GPU, but Apple does not allow 3rd party companies from acquiring these kind of chips, so it's near impossible to find them to replace. For this reason, he will decline these repairs. He will decline a reballing repair because once the GPU has internal damage once GPU issues show up. The GPU board is deteriorating and reballing is just a temporary fix.

    [QUOTE=Randy B. Singer;1843811]Sorry to say, but if you have an SSD and that much RAM, seeing beachballs is really far from being normal. You have something that needs to be fixed.

    My SSD is definitely not full. Don't get the beachballs all the time, just on occasion...especially if I rush from one app to another to another.. Other than that the only other issues I've experienced is an occasional black screen for a few seconds which then goes away, and some frustration when try to use the vertical cursor(?) to move down when reading an article. It either won't move or lags a lot. Oh, an articles that jump all over the page when i try to read an article before finally settling down. Could be some adware maybe. Any ideas?
    I use Safari as my browser and my.yahoo as my home page. Don't stream anything. I have Onyx and Macwarebytes. Pete

    Video GPU have solder balls that melt and go to the traces on the board. Sometimes when the chip gets hot the balls melt and do not connect to the traces. Reballing is taking the chip off the board with a Heat Gun and with a Jig they flow liquid solder into the holes in the Jig mounted on the chip and make new solder balls.

    Some people reflow the solder but like was said about does not last very long in most cases.

    To Iggy, I have not long ago seen Louis take a GPU off a DONER board and put it on the customers board and it fixed it. Apple is going too far telling people to throw out their still useable systems. Louis and another have been in court fighting apple and others and to allow 3rd parties to fix systems;
