I have a late 2006 iMac with Intel Core2Duo, 64-bit (32 bit EFI) with some upgraded parts:
- 2*2GB RAM (only 3 GB can be used)
- 100GB SSD which has been running for 3 years now with trim-enabler
In the SnowLopard-Server instance which I had previously installed on it, I started to get visual errors, which got more and more over time. For example windows were blank, but the elements inside were still functional.
It seemed like a problem with the GPU to me, but I wanted to make sure and installed a MacOS Lion on it. During installation process, when loaded from the USB, there were no errors at all. But after installation and booting from the hard-drive, I got the errors again. I also tried to start a linux from a cd on that mac and there were no errors either.
This sounds like a problem with the SSD, doesn't it? Can I test this somehow before I buy a new SSD?
