very frustrated at this because i just spent 300 dollars for other multiple graphic fix problems for my mac just 3 months ago.


this morning i woke up to my macbook pro screen being just black while the rest of the computer is functioning (when i restart it i can hear it start up, DVD drive and the keyboard lights work), i brought it in to tiger tech (mizzou tech store) where they tried to do the Command + Option + P and R option and it did not fix it. I then called mac and we tried that again as well as they gave me a different set of buttons to press which still did not work. When i plug it into a computer cord it will pull up on a different screen but not it's own... apple said it would be 600 to fix but i have a macbook pro 15 in from 2010 and i have been googling the issue and seeing a lot of things i find that should really render this something they fix for free.

that article in particular


as well as other people mentioning the exact same problem except from 2010 and they had theirs fixed for free.

    i know that the three year's is up but it also upsets me that i just spent so much to fix it and this problem is occuring almost exactly a week after those fixes warranty are up....


    just curious if anyone has any suggestions
