Graphics Glitches and No touchpad/mouse (usb devices?)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I set up my girlfriends macbook pro with windows a year or so ago because she ewanted to play video games, however it wasn't a legit copy of win7. Now her compy is having problems, and I dont have it with me to play with so I'm just trying to get a handle of what might be wrong with it. a quote from the text that she sent me:

"A few nights ago my display driver randomly failed and turned back on. After that the screen was a bit snowy. I turned it off, and left it alone. Last night I turned it on and the screen flashed blue, then it went grey with some gibberish, then it turned back on. I ran a startup repair and after two hours the screen was black and unresponsive. The next time I rebooted it brought me to desktop, but I couldn't use mouse or trackpad."

I told her that it sounded probably like a hardware problem (GFX or mobo, likely both since its a laptop), but a reformat with a legit copy may fix her problems.

I'm just trying to get an idea on what it might be, it sounds like her device drives are failing for some reason or another. Which could be a culprit of microsofts security protocols, although I honestly cant tell from here what it might be.

I think you are spot on with the GFX failure assumption.

^ I'm afraid of that. I dont really want to go through the process of replacing the whole motherboard, as that would probably be quite costly as well as tedious..
