    When I have my PowerBook's screen on the dimmest setting, the left hand corner is extremely dim compared to the rest of the display, but when I have it at the highest brightness setting, everything is completely even. Is this something I can have AppleCare do something about or is it just something I'm going to have to live with? Here are some pictures of what I mean, on the right is a picture of my display at brightest setting, everything nice and even, and on the left is a picture fo the display on the lowest setting. (I know the camera doesn't make it seem like the one at the brightest setting is very bright, but bare with me)

    Looks like a LCD problem.
    No you don't have to live with it. You can choose to live with it.
    I'll assume your still under warranty. Send it in for repairs.
    Just be prepared to be without a computer if you don't have a backup.

    Yes, this is a problem for AppleCare. I suspect they will replace the LCD.

    I have found AppleCare turnaround time to be fairly good. They DHL overnight you a box. You put the computer in the box. The box is then overnighted back to Apple. They fix. Your computer is overnighted back to you.

    To make it totally painless, have the DHL deliver guy wait a second while you put your PowerBook in the box. They are super simple to pack. Have tape ready to seal the front edge. That way you don't have to wait another day for them to send a pick-up guy.

    The weirdest thing happened. I unplugged my PowerBook from my TV and then put it to sleep, when I woke it up, I put the screen brightness at the lowest setting again, and all was fine! :eek: EVERYTHING WAS EQUAL! I have no idea how this happened and/or how my TV could have caused it, but whatever it was, it fixed my PowerBook! YAY LUCKY TURN OF EVENTS!
