    my 11" MBA has dark and light lines popping across the screen. does anyone know why this is happening and if it is fixable?

    are you in a cold environment or is the laptop cold? that usually happens in low temps.

    Had the same problem with my ultimate. Called tech support and they walked me through a "fix". Works great now.

    no cold for the laptop. something that's weird. when i plug the MBA into my cinema display i don't get the streaks. just when i'm using the laptop screen.
