Possible repair options for 2011, a1297 macbook pro

The 2011, 17 inch MacBook Pro logicboard is known for gpu failure. This is due to a defective third party part installed on its logic board. This problem has many symptoms including black screen, colored screen, rebooting, grey screen, startup failure and more. There are several possible fixes available for this issue. The first one is heating up the logicboard or reflowing the failed gpu. Market price for this temporary fix is around $150-$200. The next option is to replace the chip. This may work for a few months and the charge is from $350-$550. The third option is to replace the logic board which comes with the same issue and could range from $400-$650. Most computer repair shops offer these three options except our company where we offer a unique fix in addition to the first three options and called permanent GPU repair of this issue.
