The ATI Radeon X1600 GPU is broken

Hi,

I took my laptop to Apple store and showed them the scrambled apple logo. They said that it is probably broken Graphics card/unit and the complete logic board needs to be replaced, which will cost alot!

Is there a work around for this issue like the use of an external graphics card or something cheaper than getting the logic board replaced?

Regards,

Tania

How did you determine that you have a Radeon GPU?

I called apple support and gave them my serial number, they told me that my laptop has the ATI GPU not the NVIDIA.

So this is not covered under apple program.

I have 15 inch Late 2006 Macbook Pro, 2.16 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 120 GB Hard disk

No work around

reballing or replacing the logic board are only solutions.
