    So I've got my MBP that I've had for about 4 months, the thing is. It just recently started to have screen flickering issues. I'll be sitting doing w/e as usual and all of a sudden the display goes dark, almost black, for a second, then comes back up again. I have yet to find any trend in when this is happening, but it is definitely happening on battery as well as plugged in, but it seems to be getting worse.

    any one have any idea what this could be, something I can fix on my own, or should I take it in?

    ah forgot to that part, I have it installed, I haven't noticed which GPU it is, but i can verify that its not when its changing GPU.

    yes, I'm sure. I sit at the same angle in front of it for like 16 hours a day...

    I really ought to find something else to do... :p

    well yes I'm probably going to end up doing that but I'd like to be sure that its hardware related before I do. Repair is ZOOMG slow in my country, so if i can fix it myself, I'd rather.
