Pink and green lines during startup. Won't boot up
During my daily morning startup my laptop showed weird vertical pink and green lines. The apple logo starts loading but after that it shows a grey screen without the pink and green lines. Then it shuts down and restarts.
None of the key combinations like command+r or option+command+r+p work. They al just end up loading the apple logo and restarting again. So I cant do a hardware check or boot up in safe mode either.
My local repair man said it is probably the graphics card and that I'm essentially screwed because these parts aren't made anymore. He told me I could try a solution to fry the graphics card so the components would melt and reattach but that only sounds like extending its life for a couple of months and not a permanent solution.
Any ideas I could try before using my laptop as a fancy frisbee?
Thanks in adavance,
Is this a good question?
