    Hey guys

    this is my second post here .. I have to say last time you helped my a lot so thnx and I hope you do this time too.

    My 13 inch MBP ( bought it April 2010 ) started BLINKING 2 weeks ago .. nothing in particular starts it up but suddenly it blinks it just like an eye !! opens and closes! a black screen appears for .001 ms Its really annoying !!

    I went through some posts on the internet and it seems there;s no solution many of the users tried doing many things restoring upgrading ....ect
    It didn't seem to work!

    Has anyone experience this or read about it or know any solution?

    Thanks in advance

    Sounds like it could be a faulty display connector or a problem with the graphics card on the logic board, provided that you have tried all software solutions available. I would take the machine into an Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Repair store and have them check out the problem. The good thing is that any hardware issues are covered under the default one-year AppleCare protection plan.

    mine does this when its on battery and about to go to screen saver, but only when I have some apps (that you shouldn't know about) running.

    all i meant is its fast BLINKS

    well its for 1 second am just assuming to let you know that its fast :rolleyes: :p!!!

    Actually we dont have an apple store here and other places that sells apple stuff are so bad I mean their customer services !!
    I went for them for my screen it had little dots and they told me oh our policy is we replace you laptop if there are at least five dots?!
    I went for the battery and they wanted to take it for a week to check it and I use my laptop everyday ( college purposes ) ..

    So is there any solutions?
    and what do u mean by other programs running??

    If its doing it constantly I would call apple and have it sent to them. Your still under warranty.

    Ya its still on warranty until the first week of April i guess ..
    I bought my laptop from Virgin here in the middle east so who do I call am not familiar with these stuff because i've already mentioned we don't have an Apple store here So which store do I call?!

    and Ya it does that constantly and its getting worse day by day about 7-8 times a day .. the thing is my MBP is new thats why am worried and this is my first mac so I dont really know much about it

    Thanks for your replies guys
