    Good afternoon everyone,

    I have an 11.6 MBA I bought in Nov 2010 that has just started having LCD issues.

    90% of the time I use it at my desk in clamshell mode with an external monitor and that configuration is working fine, but in the last day or two the MBA LCD has started having major issues.

    Sometimes it will work, but 90% of the time it just shows a multi layered grey bar pattern that changes as I use the trackpad. The screen is totally unusable like this. If I close the lid and reconnect to an external monitor everything is fine.

    Here's what the screen looks like:

    Any thoughts? I will try to take it to an Apple Store over the weekend, but any ideas you all have would be MOST appreciated!

    Thank you in advance!!

    Since it works well with ext monitor, I'd say a hardware prob, specifically, educated guess the cable connecting screen to mobo is loose.
