Hi,

 

My MBP has stopped working, it wont boot, no chime, the light at the front just glows, the DVD drive spins up, no graphics/black screen.  A repair centre has said this sounds like the NVIDA issue which apparently affected models of this vintage and they have advised I take it along to the apple store so as they can run some software on it and diagnose if it is the NVIDA issue, do you know if apple are still running an extended warranty on this issue ?

 

Secondly, I want to copy the contents of my harddrive,  I assume that I can just purchase a SATA usb enclosure and hook it up to another MAC,  am i correct in thinking that i can do this and all I need is my password and it should all work smoothly ?

 

Many thanks
