The video card is one of the most important components of a laptop, as it is responsible for displaying graphics on the display. Despite the high quality and reliability of Apple devices, in certain cases it may be necessary to repair the MacBook video card. This is due to a number of hardware and software reasons that Rephouse service center engineers specialize in diagnosing and fixing.
Signs of failure of a video card in a macbook
Even an inexperienced user can easily determine that the graphics core has lost functionality. This is immediately displayed on the display operation:
- white or blue screen;
- artifacts in the form of horizontal or vertical stripes, cubes, pixels, etc .;
- random screen on / off, constant restart;
- missing any image.
Any of these symptoms indicate that there may be a problem with your graphics card.
Types of video card breakdowns in a mac laptop
There are a lot of reasons for the loss of performance of the video chip, conditionally they can be divided into two categories: software and technical.
In the first case, problems arise due to inappropriate drivers, third-party firmware, and incorrect updates. Such a malfunction can be eliminated by a specialist who understands programming, who will install the necessary software, the corresponding version and modification.
The second case is more difficult to repair, while there are no impossible tasks for the Rephouse masters. For what reasons, the component itself fails:
- falling, bumping and other mechanical impact that breaks the integrity of the video card or backplane;
- flooding with liquid;
- trash, heavy dust;
- drying of thermal paste;
- overheating of the chip under heavy loads.
It is the last option that is most common among users who are fond of gaming or editing. As a rule, all these cases are typical for discrete video cards that are installed in pro models and some other lines. A breakdown of an integrated chip cannot be repaired, as it means the failure of the entire processor.
