Ever seen this display problem?

    Since a few days, the LCD of my 2007 macbook displays this strange alignment of wrong pixels; pixels of which the color is incorret. The groups are fluctuating with time, including when I move the mouse into them. Strangely however, these incorrect colors do NOT appear in screenshots.

    I took this picture with a digital camera.

    The pixels can change but they are always within this margins, defining a failing set of columns.

    Has anyone ever seen the same? :confused:

    (still under Apple Care, will go to reseller next week).

    There is probably a problem with the LCD itself. If it were a problem with the graphics card or something similar, it would show up in a screenshot. If the LCD is broken, however, it will not show up in a screenshot because the information is taken from what the graphics card is sending, not what is actually being displayed.
