    On Booting up my MacBook pro displays vertical green lines on the desktop? Any idea what this means?

    Thanks in anticipation

    Which MacBook Pro do you have?

    It's probably GPU related...

    You've got RadeonGate.
    Better read up on it.

    Only solutions:
    1. Replace motherboard, but the replacement will be subject to the same failures again. Not worth spending the money on any more.
    2. Permanently disable the discrete GPU and run from integrated GPU only (instructions can be found in another thread in this forum).
    3. Start shopping for a replacement.
