    Hi guys,

    A few months before i dropped my macbook pro. it was working fine until now. i felt like the screen is vibrating when i open a window. and today it went crazy. i have changed the wallpaper to a white one and now i can see that there are black spots in the screen and there are weird shadows(such as in the dock). i have added a screenshot to show you the problem. i have bought it 2 years ago so i dont have the warranty. what should i do guys?

    Was the screen open when it fell? This is weird imo to happen months after a computer falls.

    Yes, it was open. I agree, its so weird but there is a small probability that i have not noticed the shaking of the screen until a couple days ago

    Did it fall on the glass part or the back casing of the screen? and what do you mean by shaking when opening a new window?

    It fall on the back casing. I mean when I open a new window, such as documents, the shadow of the window starts to vibrate. you can see from the ss that window has a weird shadow and actually it vibrates.

    Its a glossy screen.

    Did you have any type of protective casing on the laptop?

    Sadly, no :(

    I am afraid that I need to change my graphic card in order to solve this problem :S

    I have formatted my mac today and reinstalled snow leopard but it didn't work.

    And it is so weird that the screen is not broken but there are black spots inside of the screen, I think it is because of the graphic card but I wanted to ask in the forums anyway.

    If they truly are showing like that in the screenshots, then yes, it's going to be somehow graphics chip/memory related. but it looks very odd, usually such corruption is very different in appearance.

    What model is this? A hack fix, if it is one of the newer models with two GPUs, is to figure out which GPU is problematic and not use it. Changing between battery saver & full performance setting changes the GPU you are using.

    For a real fix, you would need a new logic board, or to have yours refurbished by a place that doesn't use a heatgun and flux.
