strange grey pattern appearing

Hi All,

So recently and frequently my computer has begun displaying this image for a second or two. Does ANYONE know what this is about?!

Thanks!

I just had my logic board replaced due to the same issue.

I had a similar issue, not the exactly the same symptoms. What kind of MBP is it?

I fixed mine by heating up the graphics chip with a heat gun for 15 seconds.

This looks similar to what my old 2008 MBP did with the Nvidia graphics card. I had to get the logic board replaced.

Bad graphics chip or RAM.
