The bad news is that I know I am on borrowed time. Pretty straight forward repair. Now your old MBP isn’t an expensive paperweight!

SOLVED: Problem with NVIDIA GeForce GT M MB? – MacBook Pro 15″ Unibody Mid – iFixit

Guys, I’ve been through this. In any practical sense, it is not possible. Cost me USD but shipping is free, delivery in days. I haven’t noticed any thing unusual with my MBP.

The seller screwed up his description post online. Unplug my external monitor; 2. I used gefogce video from Louis Rossmann and the disassembly instructions from the iFixit website.

Time Machine back to pre-High Sierra install. I’ve tried my own, no difference. The cap sholud be other Non-polarized and must nvidia geforce gt 330m in other place. Is the link wrong or did you used successfully a cap with different voltage?

I see it on the network and can 330mm screen sharing for a second but then it craps out then too.

I just ordered the capacitor. Is anything to be done? It appears that apple sold a piece of crap and just expects it’s customers to accept that they bought a disposable, unfixable, unmaintainable computer.

If you do that, you’ll end up with the same issue later down the road. Actually when I looked at 330, image of the nvidia geforce gt 330m capacitor on the board, you will see that it is polarized. Albeit it obviously means not running any graphics-intensive programs that would require the nVidia card. I’ve opted for a replacement board from www.

Any chance your near Toronto also willing to drive if not and could I pay you to do the same to mine? I am also in Canada on the west coast.


All the best, Tyler. One of the images shows you which end of the poly cap is the positive side; the little bar on the cap should be positive A crappy capacitor makes total sense.


Of course, soldering may be a bit hard nvidia geforce gt 330m We fix those and they last a lifetime. I also disconnected the 2nd monitor I was using. During the nvidia geforce gt 330m of the old capacitor with my heating gun, despite the fact I covered the motherboard all around the capacitor with silicone foils to isolate all the other components, the heatsink plates have separated from the central tubes the curved parts.

This fix has delayed my plans on getting a ft computer!
