    My old mbp unibody just started going to the vertical/horizontal blue/grey lines thing recently. i was just researching how to clean fans, thinking it probably has something to do with overheating. then I rocked the computer and it went bad again, and when i firmly but gently put it down again, it went away. so now I see it is probably some connectors or something? I am technically proficient enough to clean the fans, to give you an idea of where i'm coming from. Can anybody tell me what is going on here?

    Thats your GPU lifting away from the motherboard as the leadless solder used to attach it cracks.
