Faulty chipset GeForce 8600m GT in Macbook pro
I have an Apple laptop, which is mounted a faulty GPU GeForce 8600m GT. I would like to replace it with a good one, but I do not know which chipset is no technical defects and to be suitable for my hardware. This is a faulty chipset G84-600-A2 installed in my MacBook. There are three other chipsets matching the 8600m GT graphics: G84-601-A2 G84-602-A2 G84-603-A2 Which one should I buy, and that will work? Regards, Tom

I think you should consult this with Apple's tech support, because not all laptop have a replaceable GPU (ie. soldered)

This is a very well published problem, both Nvidia and Apple know about it, Apple did have a replacement program for the 8600 chip - basically the whole logic board was replaced. BUT the program has ended in most country's you could try Apple but your MacBook Pro will be well out of any extended g/tee by now so if you can still find a working logicboard you will probably have to pay for the repair yourself.

Thanks for your reply. I contacted Apple, but they demand exorbitant prices for replacement graphics card, and even more for the motherboard. They do not want to tell me what I should solder the chip. I can fix it myself, but I do not know which chip is suitable. Apparently all the chips work with the MacBook, but I do not know who is without flaws.

it require some experience to replace it by yourself, G84-601-A2 G84-602-A2 G84-603-A2 all is ok, but you must sure it is 128bit, (there is some 64bit in market,maybe it is not work good)
