    I've been having this problem since last year with my iMac. It appears that programs are leaving basically burning themselves into my screen. I can see the lines from programs on the screen that were open when the programs aren't open anymore. I have AppleCare but if I take it in to an Apple store and they switch out the screens with a new one won't the problem keep coming back even with a new screen?

    Sorry to bring bad news but, Normally that means that the graphics card is starting to break. Do you have Apple Care?


    Yes you do! Make an appointment with an Apple Genius. They should replace free of charge.
