    all of a sudden my display started doing this... shaking colors, lines... blacks are green... blurry...?

    have no idea what happened - was opening iphoto when it went wonky.

    all up to date software wise...

    any ideas?

    help!

    Try switching GPU modes from Battery to Performance, or vice versa, and try plugging in a display if you can. It looks like your graphics card took a dump, but you have two, so switching modes will tell you if it's something more.

    Oh god please don't say the new MacBook Pro I bought to replace my graphics issue laden 2008 MacBook Pro has the same damn problems....

    I was going to give the same advice as Benjic but it doesn't look good.
