    Hello y'all

    My 15' Macbook Pro is having some issues after waking up! I posted some pictures, it's easier to see rather than explain the issue. But it all happens after waking up, and the problem usualy solves after I close and open the lid, but sometimes that's not enough and I just have to wait for it to solve itself =S is thins a known issue?


    Thanks everyone

    It's a cable issue (as in pinched cable in the hinge area) or your video chip is pooing the bed. What happens when you hook up and external display? If that's stripey too, my bet is on the video card. If not, pinched display signal cable.

    My money is on the video card. Take it to the Apple store they should repair it none the less, because I mean that is a pretty apparent issue.

    Not to be an ass but I think you meant 15" not 15'. That would be HUGE haha.:p

    I'm guessing the video card is beginning to fail. Go to the Genius Bar and see what they can do.
