MacBook Pro GPU failures are widespread issues on the 2011 A1286 15″ model. Back in late 2013, we developed the permanent solutions to solve the problems by removing the poor quality AMD GPU and rewiring the screen directly to the Intel intergraded graphics chip. We rolled out this service in large scale in January 2017 once Apple ends the GPU recall program. Since then we have done hundreds of units with no single return for a second repair, no software compatibility issues, no firmware upgrade issues and no PRAM reset issues. It is the best trouble-free solution on the market.
