I have an old Macbook pro:

 

2.4 GHz Intel core 2 duo

4GB Ram

NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT

 

I've started getting intermittent display corruption issues, which you can see in this image:

These sometimes last for a few minutes and then go away. It is rarely present when I first switch on/resume the machine.

 

Any ideas about what this is? I'm guessing that it might be the dreaded death of the graphics chip?

 

I see that the extended recall of these parts is long over.

 

Any advice on what I can do?

Thanks
