Colored lines on screen (graphics snow)
Wondering about this strange behaviour that I encounter on 2012 i5 1600Mhz memories (not 2010 MBP 13 C2D 2.4ghz)
I posted a link of uploaded image: https://s28.postimg.org/f1bsi0wwd/DSC_05...
I have played the lottery and bought the machine, hoping it is an issue with memory chip. I have encountered that display / crash error on machines with failed memory chips or wrong memory compatibility.
Mac boots up fine from USB stick, start the install process of El Capitan, then... lands into garbled lines of multiple colors as it can be seen.
So - is this a graphics chip failure, where heat buildup makes it crash and burn? Or is is something else on the board, a capacitor or resistor not doing its job?
Many thanks! T
Is this a good question?
