    Hello all. So my 8 day old 2.2 MBP screen is flipping out, it goes to a bright white with pinstripe colors running down it (example below). I'm thinking its a software issue because it only happens when I restart the machine. I have to do a PRAM reset for it to display correctly, after that it works fine. Has anyone else exprienced this ? Could it be some sort of driver conflict ?

    It started last night after maybe an hour of playing WoW and casual browing. I did call applecare this morning and they're sending a box out in morning, but its going to take 7 days from what the techie told me. Problem is I'm leaving for Japan Monday evening and wont be back until 2 weeks later. So no one will be here to accept it. Also I do suffer from OCD making me super anal about small things such as marks, scratches, dust, etc. How will they handle my MBP ? I hear about some people getting their macs back with scratches, marks, screens with dead pixels. I know it's not much of a deal but it is to me and I'd go absolutely insane.

    Should I go on and send it off in the morning or maybe wait and let a mac genius look at it ?

    You can ask Apple to keep the MacBook Pro at an Apple store, and when you get back, just go to the Apple store and get it. When I sent my MacBook Pro out for repair the service was finished in about 5 days, my MacBook Pro came back in great condition.

    Great idea iBookG4user, though it would be great to take it with me on my trip. Thanks
