ok, so the lines are there on os.x

but what about windoze? although, if it's a driver issue, the perfect test would be to boot some linux live.distro free of any apple/nvidia drivers

thanks

if i just started a useless duplicate thread, feel free to delete it :)

Maybe someone can download one of those boot Linux from a CD with an external USB Drive.

This is a really important question because if this is a driver issue apple is able fix the issue soon.

If the screen issues are on other OS too it might be a hardware issue which cannot be fixed by a firmwareupdate.

If it was a driver issue, then it would be appearing on every single MBA revB period.

I would be glad about that, actually (and imho I believe that it is on every single unit). But wasn't there someone running BootCamp with Windows with the same Issues?

Are the drivers loaded while/immediately at boot up? Cause the lines are visible from the beginning.

Are there any other nvidia drivers? Maybe somebody could try?
