    permanently disable discrete graphics on MBP

    My trusty 2011 mbp discrete graphics chip has died. It wouldn't boot- just gets to a point in the boot and shows bad lines on the screen and hangs. It even hangs on a USB recovery disk so it isn't the internal drive/settings. I put the mbp into target disk mode and moved...

    I have an old Apple 2009 Macbook Pro. I like this machine a lot, and have upgraded the hard drive and ram, replaced the battery, and switched out the dvd drive for another hard drive.
