    Hi

    I've been having this problem for the last few weeks intermittently, and occurs whenever I bring my Macbook Pro (17 – 5,2 – 10.6.4) awake from sleep, or sometimes just when I switch it on.

    It is a bit difficult to describe, so here is a picture:

    I have to hard-reset the laptop to fix this each time...

    Do I need to send it away for repairs or is this something that I could fix myself?

    No, you'd want to send that in for repairs. How old is it? Not well versed on the cryptic code of 17 - 5,2 10.6.4. (well ok I know what it all is but I don't know whether 5,2 is the most recent revision.

    It is the mid-2009 model, so 1.5 years old, but I have the extended Applecare coverage on it.

    sorry for the bump, but its polite to update the post in case others find it through google.

    I got the LCD replaced under applecare. Since then I've had no problems in about two months :)
