Display has massive white lines, no GPU related.
So I have lying around a Macbook Pro 15" Late 2008 Unibody that failed long time ago, and I have this Macbook Pro 15" Early 2011. After a while of use the screen has half screen with a white line that lefts unable to use at least 40% of the screen. It functions normaly but it's driving me crazy.
After reading a while it's a display related failure, and went to Apple to get it changed, but they are charging me almost 520 USD (9650 MXN) for changing the whole top lid, instead just the display.
Long story short, I have a iFixit 54bit screws kit, and I was wondering if swapping the whole top lid (whole screen, without the hinges) from the MBP15 2008 and trying it on into the 2011 MacbookPro15 I have, will it work?.
Thanks for looking into this!
Is this a good question?
