The last two days i've been experiencing some bizarre issue with my laptop. Basically, all embedded Flash objects will flicker white boxes during playback, especially in video playback. This isn't an issue simply with youtube and affects all other flash video sites (myspace, google etc). It affects both Safari/FF and i've updated all browsers and plugins without resolution of the issue. I'm also getting what I understand to be referred to as screen tearing. Certain documents/sites affect this worse and it seems to happen more when i scroll the screen. So basically, as the screen content is updated, the pages become fractured, randomly rendering image chunks over the top of each other. I've had trouble grabbing screen shots of the issue as it flickers so fast, it's difficult to catch it when the tears and boxes occur but i've been successful in grabbing a few which you can see below. I'm not sure if this an issue with the 8600M GT i've been hearing about but others seem to be suffering similar problems with this/Quartz. I also understand that Apple have recognized the issue are issuing repairs for affected units. See: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=9292022 and: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2377 What do you guys think? Is my card screwed and what's my best bet for taking it in to get repaired, how long will i be without it? I have Applecare. I've been having a load of issues lately.. the screen is developing LCD mura where small spots are letting through more backlight, my superdrive's ****ed and refuses to spin up, simply ejecting the disc. I've already had the battery replaced under warranty, what do you guys think will happen given the sheer number of problems i'm having? I take very good care of my machine and i've got to say i'm a little bit pissed that it's failing on so many parts.
