    I have a Late 2007 MacBook Pro 15". There are faint lines going up on the screen. It appears to be some sort of video defect. Any reason why?

    As I said the lines are faint. You can only see them in the background. The lines don't obscure the view of the screen. So it would be hard to get a picture. Sorry.

    Maybe your screen is too glossy... Like a highway cop's sun grasses. :cool:

    Are you talking about that goal post looking thing in the middle of your screen? If so, I think it warrants a call to Apple even if it is out of warranty. I just recently had my MBP 17" repaired by AppleCare just out of my warranty. Just be courteous and you'll be off to a good start.

    Could those be indents from the keyboard/trackpad?

    Yes I am talking about the goal post things, I will take your advice and give apple a call, I think!

    I though it was due to the keyboard/trackpad, but the blurred lines don't line up with keys or trackpad, and it has a more rounded affect?

    Hmm. I'm guessing water damage, which isn't covered. Of course if there is none, then you'll be fine.

    What is the Graphics Card in your MBP? If it is the 8600m GT then it may be failing and that is covered even out of warranty.
