Hey Guys,

First time poster, long time reader.

Got this on my 2011 MBPro the other day, and hasn't worked since. Obviously will take to Apple for fixing but nearest shop is 5 hours away so would like to have an idea of what I'm up against before I go. Any ideas?

RAM issue?
Hard Drive?

Like Harry says, try starting up with the shift key down.
Extensions do not load and some caches are cleaned.
If you can log in OK, then restart normally to see if the MBP is healthy again.

Thanks for the replies gents.

Unfortunately the shift key does nothing.

In fact, now the progress bar gets to about 40% and the machine shuts down. No option to login or anything.

Your logic board is probably faulty. Thats what mine looked like when it failed. I think Apple are fixing them for free as it is a known fault with 2011 Macbook Pros.

No mine looked like the picture and it was the logic board.

Sorry, should've updated this.

Hard Drive shot. Now onto my 3rd one in 4 years. Not happy.
