I have a 2010 MacBook Pro 2010 with a faulty Nvidia GPU that used to crash the laptop every now and then.
I than ran a program called MBPMid2010-GPU-Fix-0.6.1, which bypassed the Nvidia GPU. So far, I haven't had a single crash. I read somewhere that after bypassing Nvidia GPU, I won't be able to use external monitor.
However when I tried, it worked. I want to know if it is safe to use an external monitor using only onboard Intel HD Graphics (288 MB)?
