Graphics problems on the MacBook Pro
Yesterday, I stumbled across a grim issue with the MacBook Pro graphics chip, the nVidia 8600 GT. I'm not convinced it's a hardware issue, yet, but this morning's disaster sure looks like one. I booted up, twice, and saw a strange blocky pattern on the screens. The third time, I plugged in the power, and it booted without a problem. I shut down and rebooted, removed the power cable, and then rebooted again, but couldn't recreate the problem. I did take photos, though. More Info:
