    I swear I started a thread about this issue ages ago, but simply can't find it it.

    I've been having problems with a slightly scrambling screen, and thought it may be caused by a component that heats up and cools down in a macbook pro, and is known to flex when you pick the machines up from one side.

    But I can't for the life of me remember what it was called..... has anyone got any ideas?

    Its not the graphics card, otherwise I'd remember.

    Its something to do with power distribution across the screen, and it heats up and cools down quite a lot.

    I've noticed the flickering seems to me four mainly playing a video or in applications with progress bar, so I'm guessing it's related to refreshing quickly
