    your serial number is different now ...

  • babowa Level 7 Level 7 (25,920 points)

    It has absolutely nothing to do with the company who did the work.

     

    Your serial number is on the logic board - you get a different logic board, your serial number will be different. No big deal; all you need to make sure is that Apple is aware of it (if you are still covered under warranty/Applecare).

    I would too like to know if anyone has had their logic board replaced after the 4 years? My macbook pro from late '07 had issues freezing in the past but I usually would just reboot it and it would be fine. Now it is having issues completely freezing after a couple minutes, if it gets past booting, with the mouse still moveable however. If it doesnt get past booting, the screen usually looks distorted and purpple/green.

    Anyway, i took it to the apple store and they confirmed it was the graphics card issue but it would cost $300+ to fix it. I asked about the recall, but the genius says it is after 4 years of purchasing so it is not covered. Also, my logic board already had to be replaced in 2009, which I mentioned, but this had no effect on the 4 year deadline.

    Having spent over $2000 plus $350 for apple care I would expect a quality long lasting product. Definitely would'nt expect the logic board to fail 2 times in just over 4 years!

    Also, apple never sent me any notifications about the nvidia recall/issues. If i had known about the recall, I would have had my computer looked at long ago when it first froze on me.

    My next plan is to call apple hq and explain basically what i have said above.

    I hope they are understanding as they have been for some of the other posters.

     

    Anyone have a similar situation?

    I have a NEW logic board according to my invoice abot

    but still the same serial number

    did apple cheat me again ...

  • macssam Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    what I would like to know is

    what kind of logic boards are installed after the original logic board fails and has to be replaced ...

  • Shootist007 Level 6 Level 6 (16,645 points)

    No the other postr is completely wrong. There is a software program that Apple uses to SET the serial number. Also Real Apple stores and repair centers have that same program to change/SET serial numbers on logic boards when they are changed.

  • babowa Level 7 Level 7 (25,920 points)

    I'd be a bit careful with your all inclusive statements or the assumption I had my logic board replaced by some fly by night outfit. There may or may not be instances where an Apple store does this - I have no experience in this because I've never taken any Mac to an Apple store for service. Why should I - I've always opted for in home service, so much easier than having to get it to a store or shipping it.

     

    My logic board was replaced by an AASP (an authorized apple service provider arranged for by Applecare > a "real" repair center) on site (my home); there was a new serial number and they registered it with Apple right from my Mac in my study while I was watching.

    no it does have to do with the company who do the work in my case.

     

    they were working on 2 computers at the same time, My MBP 2011 and a MB 2010.

     

    when they put the serial numbers back on they mixed the computers up and turned my MBP 2011 into the MB 2010. Thats what happened in my case and it was group8 who did the work.

     

    Your serial number should stay the same so I would not think that you have been cheated.

    If a Genuine Apple Replacement Logicboard has been supplied it has no serial number programmed into it The Serial number has to be updated on the Logicboard by the technician to finalise the repair.  Once done it cant be altered.

    I seriously doubt that. That would mean they throw away all the old board they change out and that is not the case. There is software to remove and or replace the serial number. Once Apple recieves a defective LB they repair it and wipe the serieal number so when it is installed it can have the new SN input.

  • babowa Level 7 Level 7 (25,920 points)

    I've not been cheated at all - no big deal, but I believe you wanted to address your comments to someone else?

  • macssam Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    what you are saying is

    that for U$400 apple installes the same old junk parts ...

  • Tafftech Level 2 Level 2 (265 points)

    What i meant was it cannot be altered by end users, AASP's or Apple Store
