Affected MacBook Pros and symptoms
Among the models affected are those that were manufactured between approximately May 2007 and September 2008. They include the MacBook Pro (15-Inch, 2.4/2.2GHz), MacBook Pro (17-Inch, 2.4GHz), and MacBook Pro (Early 2008).
Customers who own one of these systems should look for instances of distorted or scrambled video on their screen, or the absence of video on the screen (or external display) when the computer is running.
I haven’t seen any video problems on Lorax, but it’s definitely affected by this issue. I’ll be keeping an eye on it, and if I need it later, well it’s blogged here. 2 year service, even if it’s out of warranty.
