Hi everyone, sorry for my english i'm not a native speaker.

I have a problem with my MacBook Pro "Core i7" 2.2 15" Late 2011 (MD318LL)


- Intel I7-2675QM 2.2GHz

- 4Gb 1333 DDR3

- Radeon HD 6750M and Intel HD Graphics 3000

- 500 GB (5400 RPM)


I bought it while i was in USA it was refubished

Everything was fine while i was in USA.

In russia (yep i'm from russia) macbook started to freeze while first boot (while it cold) and in idle (only in mac os x 10.8.2, i think it's becouse macbook cools down, in windows efi don't give acces to intel hd 3000, so macbook stays hot: cpu 60C\140F )

I changed ram,hdd nothing helped. Ran Apple Service Diagnostic nothing wrong (except for hdd test: error -33000 [wrong drive type] but i think it's becouse of ssd (i changed hdd to ssd to test if hdd is ok)).

Reinstalled Mac OS X same, installed windows same.

Everything fine in startup manager, or while installing mac os x, or while downloading mac os x (cmd+r in start up manager) and laptop is cold.

In games, programs, test everything fine. I think that problem in microcrack (hair crack not sure how in english). Any ideas? Ask any question.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
