    Got my macbook here. Bought it 1.5 years ago. Out of warranty. Running on 10.5.8

    Here's a pic.


    When i printscreen it, the white strip does not appear. Its present even when I'm using my mac. And additionally, It's only visible when the background isn't white or black.

    Also, its been happening on and off. It normally goes away if I've been carrying my macbook in my backpack and then open it up again (leads me to think maybe it is sensitive and may have been bonked on something while i was carrying it in my bag). However, this time, it hasn't gone away simply by rebooting it.

    Sounds like you probably need to make a trip to the Apple Store for them to look at it

    If it's not appearing when you print screen, then it is almost certainly a hardware issue. I would definitely have it looked at soon. If you don't have an apple store near you, and you are still under warranty then call apple now.

    Get it fixed.
