Apple has released a MacBook Pro Video Update 1.0, which claims to address a problem with 15″ MacBook Pros manufactured in mid-2010, where they intermittently freeze or stop displaying video after upgrading to Lion (a.k.a. the Black Screen of Death). This update requires Mac OS X 10.7.2.

Unfortunately this update doesn’t appear to be fixing all the Black Screen of Death problems with mid-2010 MacBook Pros, but it does help for those experiencing that problem at the OS X login window. The update also doesn’t address the Black Screen of Death experienced by other Mac models after upgrading to Lion, including older MacBook Pros and 27″ iMacs.
