    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?
