Graphics issue?

Well guys the title says it. My rev. A MBA has been having this little issue in the picture for a couple of days now. Most of the time at the top, and sometimes covering the left side. It does it on both my cinema display and the built in. Any ideas?

It sounds like a software issue if it does it on both displays, or possibly the video card. I would try making sure your software is updated and try an SMC reset. If that doesn't work, reinstall the OS and see if that fixes it. If that doesn't do it, call apple if you still have a warranty.

I have the same problem with my mba and acd. I noticed however, that its occurrence is limited to when I use expose when multiple windows of heavy text-based documents are open.

Have you taken it to apple and seen what they have said? I have taken a picture of each occurrence with my iphone so I'll be able to show the genius what has been happening.
