If your recently purchased MacBook Pro has taken a turn for the worst and is displaying garbled or no video whatsoever, you are not alone.
Apple Support has issued a new posting outlining a problem which is occurring in many MBP models purchased over the last two years (dating back to May 2007.) The issue is due to faulty graphics chips from Nvidia and can cause the display to either become garbled or simply stop working altogether.
Fortunately, the company is offering to fix the issue on any machine purchased in the last two years, even if it's no longer under warranty.
To qualify, you'll need to have a MacBook Pro model equipped with an Nvidia 8600M GT processor built between May 2008 and September 2008. If your display has crapped out on you and your machine meets the above specs, head on down to an Apple Store/Authorized Repair shop for your free fix.
Of course, don't expect to jump to the front of the line at the Genius Bar. Screen or no screen, you'll have to make a reservation like the rest of us...
