    Hello all,

    I have a late 2009 15" 2.53GHz MBP.

    I was browsing Safari about 10 minutes ago and the all of a sudden the screen flickered and then black bars starting going across 3/4 of the screen. The 1/4 of the screen that was clear I could see my cursor and move it but not select anything. I also could not complete any gestures on the trackpad successfully. I just held the power button down, and started back up successfully and am on the computer right now.. What do you guys think the issue is?

    Oh, and I took a video and it is uploading as I type this and will post a link to the video as soon as possible.

    Thanks for your input and opinions.

    I have a similar problem and I have suspected a loose connection on the side of the actual screen. But I am looking for confirmation.
