    Same thing happened to my computer...except way worse. Reminiscent of an issue I had way back when in this thread here.

    Any one else have this issue? Any solutions? :(

    Thank you.

    Graphics in Mavericks

    Yes, many who own PBPro2010 are having the same issue. Short term fix is Sys Prefs>Energy Saver> click off and on Auto Graphics switching

    Thanks you so much for this tip! I had to restart my computer each time it happened.

    Same thing is happening with my brother's laptop.

    When is Apple going to issue a fix this problem?

    Rebooting doesn't help me

    I have the ghost graphics on Mavericks, and rebooting only clears it up for a few minutes, then in comes back. It does not seem to be application specific. As far as I know, Apple cannot (or will not) reproduce this problem. I have a Mid 2010 17-inch MacBook Pro. Can't afford a new laptop. If there is no fix soon I guess the only option is to wipe the hard disk and rebuild with Mountain Lion.

    I have been having the same issues, but my wife has not. I have a mid 2010 MBP 15" and my wife has a mid 2010 MBP 13".

    I took a snapshot of the issue and just need to send it to apple.

    screen artifacts "electric snow"

    My mid-2010 iMac just started the random rebooting yesterday. I had upgraded to Mavericks the day it came out.

    The weird thing is that I started seeing screen artifacts, basically asterixes that look like an 8-bit snow program, on my screen in random patterns. They come and go, and mostly just an annoyance.

    But now the reboots, and I'm getting nervous.

    Anyone have any ideas?
