    Hey guys I have a macbook 2.26ghz ic2 and I have this weird thing inside the screen, no idea what I should do. I do have icare.

    Here it is:

    North of my cursor.

    I also have a problem where my macbook pro would be sitting there awake and it would bink (on/off or low light back to normal, not sure cause it happens fast). What could this be?

    Any help or what steps I should take is appeciated, thanks.

    Just bring it to a genius bar. They'll bring up your account information and if you have AppleCare they may be able to replace it.

    That's strange though. Has that been there since you bought it?

    i'm not exactly sure how long it has been there, i only noticed it a couple months ago, however the blinking problem has been there for quite a bit.

    how do i know if there is a genius bar around here (I live in Windsor, Ontario Canada) and we do not have an apple store here.

    we do however have a best buy with an apple section inside, but I bought this MBP online from apple

    Theyll take a look at it for you. If you have best buy warranty, theyll direct you to an apple authorized repair shop. Bestbuy does NOT repair macs in house. If you have either their warranty or applecare, the repair shop will fix it for you.
