Do I need to replace my logic board?
Ok, I have a MacBook Pro 15" Mid 2010 (6,2). Model A1286. The video started to jitter a little on screen & a minute later the screen went black. Now when I try to start up, the screen is black but a faint light is seen, sleep indicator is off, I can hear the CD drive engage. No startup chime was heard, but I heard it when I reset my PRAM.
I connected to an external monitor & after a minute after starting, laptop screen is still black, but external monitor is lit up grey with tiny vertical line pattern.
From what I have read here, it sounds like my video is shot. Does anyone know if I just need to replace the logic board, or can I replace the graphics on the existing board? Let me know what my options are, please. Any input is appreciated. My logic board # is 820-2565-A
Is this a good question?
