27" LED Cinema Display, 2010.
Mac Book Pro, 17", Early 2011. OSX, Snow Leopard Version 10.6.8


It all started real well, until i unplugged from the Display this one time to finish up an assignment at a friend's place.

Then, once reconnected, no image ever pops up anymore, but the iSight camera and the speakers still do work.


In my display preferences, it shows that my MBP does not detect a display. How is this possible?
Theres sound coming out of the speakers and the isight camera is working fine! When i do attempt to command it to detect,
nothing ever happens! It's perplexing and frustrating all at the same time!


I took it to the Apple store, assuming it's the display that's problematic only to be proven wrong.
The apple store guy connected it to one of their own display MBPs and boom, the display is at it's glory.
The guy told me it's my MBP that is at fault. He suggested i send my MBP over for fixing but i really do need it
and absolutely have no time to wait (study related) since he told me it could take ages.



Does anybody have a possible solution i can attempt to do by myself ?
I'll only send my MBP off for repairs as a last resort as i do need it around for my studies.

please be specific and informative.


Help me out! :S


Thanks in Advance!
