    I've had my 2008 unibody Macbook since launch day, and have taken very good care of it. Today, I lifted it off of the table and put it on my lap on the couch, and this bar appeared on my screen. It won't go away, and I never bought Apple Care. Am I completely out of luck?

    To me that looks like a problem with the LCD panel itself. An expensive repair job I'm afraid.

    But I guess it's possible that it is something in the graphics subsystem. Try resetting the SMC, rebooting, running Hardware Test etc. Just in case

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I wasn't able to fix the problem :(
