    I've begun to notice that my Macbook will give me a kernel panic very often when I pick it up. Just now I was listening to a youtube video of a song and I picked it up to move to my desk and she gave me the old kernel panic.

    This has been happening for the past few days.

    One more thing: yesterday I had a weird experience with something on my screen. Basically on the right side I had a whole bunch of horizontal lines appear sort of like barcodes. The macbook was pretty much frozen, so I held the power button and rebooted. Once it got to the blue screen these bars appeared again and I was forced to reboot again and they disappeared.

    My macbook is only about 7-8 months old so I know I'm still covered by the warranty, plus I have AppleCare purchased and registered.

    Any idea whats wrong or should I just backup my data and leave it?

    Note: This is a white plastic Macbook, 4GB Kingston RAM, Combo Drive

    I would back up your data and have it fixed when convenient.

    For the Kernel panics try this.

    However if the kernel panics and/or the screen issues dont pass onve the PRAM is reset then it sounds like a more serious (physical hardware eg logic board, cable) issue. I'd say back up anything important just to be sure and try get it checked asap!
