    I have the mid 2014 15 inch retina MacBook pro, running sierra on it. I was using it in a room, then closed it to take into a mother room, when I opened the lid, all of a sudden the screen was flickering pinks, I could not get it to stop, I could still see the contents on the screen, and the trackpad pointer worked, but it flickered. I did nothing that I have not been doing normally already. I have a plastic case on it.

    I had to shut it down, and restarted it, and it seems to functioning fine now. I bought this mac in April 2015, I think it is out of warranty now.

    After starting up again, I ran tech tool pro on it and tested the video memory, and it passed. Are there any other apps to test with?

    I also run flux on it, if that could be a factor. also, this laptop has dual graphics; the Intel Iris Pro but in, and the NVIDEA GeForce GT 750 M, dedicated graphics.

    I had the exact same thing happen to day on my 2011 MBP, 16GB/RAM with old disk. Will watch thread to see what people say!

    could you link to your thread? My MacBook is fairly new, it has a 512 GB SSD drive.
