One way to fix an overheating graphics chip in an iMac
Authored by: joeyblades on Jan 20, '10 07:08:15PM

ObbieZ,

You don't understand. When these iMacs go bad - they are virtually dead. I can start mine up and maybe get about 15 minutes of work done and then it dies. The cost to repair is nearly what you would pay for a brand new machine - maybe better with your school discount.

I canibalized mine. Memory went to a new machine, hard disk to an external enclosure. Optical drive on the shelf waiting for new home. I'm still looking for a way to reuse the display as an external monitor - seems like it should be doable...
