My 2011 15" MBP shows me the blue screen of death when it starts up (after the gray screen) and it literally just hangs there and I have to switch off my MBP by holding the power button.


I brought it to a Apple Service Centre and they told me all I had to do was reformat my MBP to get it up and running again (they could do it for me for $150... what a rip off). So after I reformatted it at home, I was hoping there wouldn't be any blue screen of death this time. But alas, no. It happened again.

I've read a couple of threads on here and I have a feeling it has something to do with a damaged video card. Also, I realised I can't watch videos on Youtube now.


Has anyone experienced something similar? I guess I have to go all the way down to the Apple Service Centre AGAIN...

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7), 2GHz Intel Corei7,4GB 1333 MHz DDR3
