    Feels good. :wiggle:

    FYI: In case any of you did not know, (I did not until this happened,) Apple and NVIDIA agreed to free replacement of failing 8600M GT cards in the non-unibody MacBook Pros due to a faulty chipset. As long as your card fails the test and gives up a replacement code for any ASP, they will replace the card for free regardless of whether or not you have Apple Care.

    My symptoms: I would be doing random work and the screen would flicker nonstop. I could move my mouse but nothing else worked. Had to force restart the computer by holding the button. Upon restart I would get the gray screen with a kernel panic.

    I just sent mine in for the nvidia problem.

    Symptoms: just died, no screen, even to external.

    Of course though I send it in and they say the harddrive won't mount.

    The lady I talked to actually tried to hassle me because I had a dent in the corner where the harddrive is, saying that I'm out of warranty. She said oh well, and is fixing the nvidia, the harddrive, and the superdrive.

    Problems I probably caused by running into a door. :mamoru:

    But now I'm out of warranty.
