Macbook Pro 17" no video

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
There seems to be an alarming number of failures with Macbooks where the video stops working directly after the SMC 1.3 update.

These failures are not covered by the Apple extended warranty for the Nvidia issue

Details some of the discussions are here:
http://discussions.apple.com/thread....0755&tstart=15

Apple do not allow me to post a thread that asks people to list there hardware versions that have failed.
The minute I post this it gets deleted:

Oh. You should reboot your OS and run a check up on all your applications in Stack. Check your graphics card for any problems. Let us know the result soon.

So you have Windows installed in bootcamp or any emulator? If so uninstall them and reboot.
