..i don't really know much about laptops at all, so all i can tell you is that i have a mac and and it says MacBook on the bottom of the screen. iv had this laptop for about 3 years and it hasn't really given me much trouble from what i can remember, but this morning i turned it on and it had this thick band of fuzzy lines going from the top to the bottom of the screen. i can't explain the lines, it's kind of like when you turn on your tv and its just on a channel that doesn't work and its all black and white. The band is about 1 or 2 inches thick and does not show up in screen shots so i can't show you that either. anybody have any helpful information on what this could be, how much it may cost to fix, or if it can even be fixed..
