    Hello,
    I have an 2011 Early MacBook Pro. When I would turn on my computer my screen would flash with black and grey diagonal lines before it's gets to the login screen. When I had the MacBook Pro connected to an external monitor and turned it on none of these problems occurred. Is there something wrong with my video card? How should I go about this since I do not have Apple Care? Thanks!

    Have it looked at because this could be a graphics card issue.

    Thanks! I'll take it to a Genius Bar.
