Multiple Problems, possibly display.
I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro 15" 2Ghz. And well it's got a lot of issues.
-Lets start with startup. If the battery is installed it won't start up or will go from the apple screen to either a blank gray screen or the blue screen of death.
-The sleep/standby light blinks about 4 or 5 times wether the battery is installed or not.
-The battery won't charge.
-Without the battery installed the computer will start up on it's own once you connect the charger. It will actually start and restart 3 times before it goes into a full startup. If you don't unplug the charger you can shut it down and restart it normally.
-Computer has restarted on its own once fully booted.
-Blue Screen of Death while sitting, and waiting.
-I of course removed the battery, it helped.
-I reset the pram and smc multiple times
-I tried changing out the MagSafe board.
-Changed out the ram for known working ram
-Changed out the hard drive.
I have ordered a battery and am waiting on it.
With all of these troubles do you believe that these could be related to the graphics issues with the 2011 MacBook Pro's?
Thanks in advance.
Is this a good question?
