    Hi guys,

    I have a big problem with the Macbook Pro I'm using. When I don't use my MBP for a day and then switch it on, the OS starts up but when it gets to the Desktop, the screen is either blank/Black or it shows blocks and bars. I added some pics below.

    Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    It's broke, probably the graphics card. Genius Bar time.

    your graphics card appears to be going. Take it into a genius and see what they say.

    It could be a faulty inverter cable as well.
    I have had a problem similar to your second photo, opened and closed my MBP several times,
    carefully pressed on the left side of screen (direction: from left to right), and it reverted back to normal!
    In total, it has occurred three times. I repeated the same actions every time.
    So far, have not experienced any issue - currently, it is two month since the last accident.

    In any case, bring your MBP to genius. Because, even if your GPU is working,
    the replacement inverter cable costs money (around 25$ from eBay),
    but genius should give a new cable and replace it for free.
