    I have a MacBook Pro 2008 (Old school style), the image on the screen is blurred it looks like it has the wrong resolution/ the pixels are out of phase, the graphics card seems to be working fine with no glitches, when I connect to an external display the picture is fine & runs fine, zero glitching.

    Has anyone seen anything or had anything like this before? I don't think it's the graphics given it runs fine and the external display is fine...

    Here are some photos on the screen close up:

    I'd venture a guess and say its the GPU failing.

    Weirdest thing I've seen.

    Now fixed, if you have this problem try different RAM that seems to have solved the problem, very odd indeed.
