Hi everyone,

The screen/video card died (for the 2nd time) and I cannot see anything even if I connect an external display.

I will take it to Apple for a second repair as the AppleCare agent refused to replace it. Apple gave me back my repaired MBP on June 6th and by June 14th it died again. I think this is unacceptable and will request a replacement.

The main problem is that I had enabled the Firmware Protection option from the Leopard Install DVD before the display died (again). Now I can't even boot in Firewire mode to backup my stuff from the HD before taking it to the store.

Does anyone know how to disable this Firmware Protection? I have already tried to reset the PRAM but was unsuccessful.

Please help me!
