Serial No. went missing on my MacBook Pro

Hey guys!

Have you ever met this?

I have been recently suffering from nVidia issues on my mid2012 i7 15" MBP. It freezes all the time, have little squares, and lines on screen, when frozen. It wouldn't be a problem, because I have Apple Care, BUT!

As far as I am experiencing these issues, my motherboard forgot it's serial no. It's like if I had already changed my logic board, it says "System Serial#".

I am working with Macs, I am repairing them since 2010, but I've never seen anything like this, and this machine's logic board hasn't been changed, that's for sure, bcz it's my own.

I attach some pictures, where you can see, that hardware monitor app recognizes that I have "switched" computer, but remembers an older machine (with my serial no.), which is quite similar.....

Sometimes this kind of stuff can be a software issue. Maybe it is possible that updating your iOS will fix the issue. What iOS are you currently running?

This is not iOS, this is Mavericks.. It's a MacBook Pro. Latest OS X.

Would you mind giving us full serial number off the bottom of the machine.

Did you check the systems firmware? Here's Apples TN on how to check and update: EFI & SMC firmware updates for Intel-based Macs

What happens when you boot the system off of an external HD or thumb drive which you know works correctly on a different like system? Does it still mess up?
