    2 years ago I had bought this iMac 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and its on version 10.5.3. It came with tiger and when I installed leopard I started getting all these red pixels. I have no idea if its a software problem or hardware problem. Someone please help!!!!!!!!

    A picture really would help us identify the problem.

    Not a command-shift-3 photo

    get a camera and take as good of a shot that you can of your computer

    Interesting. Based on how that looks I don't see how it could be anything other than a hardware problem.

    Gotta be a screen issue. If it were graphic-card based then it would look a LOT worse.

    more like this:


    Very odd, though.

    Either way, I would contact Apple and ask them if they could look over it (whether you ring AppleCare or take it to a store). Hopefully it won't be too expensive! What size screen is it?

    Honestly, it looks like someone's taken something to it and pressed on it REALLY hard. (looks like a thumb mark in the midst of the bottom red bit, and the top bit looks like someone got a retractable-nib pen and scribbled on your screen)

    Its Fixed!!!!!!!

    Alright when I took it into the apple store the most bizarre thing happened. All the red pixels went away.:confused:I guess while I was driving there something moved in the computer which fixed it I guess. Thanks for all the help though.

    Lets give it some time.
    You never know if the problem could appear again.

    ..But we sure hope not!
