    Hi everyone :)
    I bought the SyncMaster 2693HM Samsung screen, and connected it to my Macbook Pro 15" 2.0Ghz 2GB RAM. Things were ok in the beginning, but then i started to notice a glitch in the graphics, that got worse by time.
    basically its like a certain part of the screen could be the courners or even in the middle get stretched and stays like that, and will not go away unless i refresh the screen either by scrolling up and down or moving a window on top of that glitch.
    Now, the computer constantly crashes, so i deceided to disconnect my the monitor. and never connect it again to my mac, but the problem is the glitch problem is still there!!! tried going to system preferences and detect monitors so the systems uses the laptop monitor only, but the problem still persists.
    please help me out. I am depending on my laptop for work and my life basically.

    Thank you all in advance.

    Allawi

    Is the laptop still under warranty? It sounds like a hardware issue to me.

    Hi, well I purchased apple care for 3 years. Should I just book with genius bar to have a look, do you think apple care will cover for that?

    Thank you

    It should, yes. You're paying for the support as well as the free repairs.
