    Hi all, I accidently dropped my mbp yesterday, fell about 2 feet, it was off at the time and I immediately tried to start it, I got the white screen and the start-up chime but when it booted to my desktop all I could see are strange vertical grey lines, I connected my laptop to my friend's with firewire and thankfully the harddrive is still ok, only thing is I cant use the laptop. Any idea what is wrong with it and of this can be fixed without taking it in? I'm currently in a remote area of Asia where there is no place to take it

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    plug it into an external monitor to see if the problem exists there. other than that i would say you screwed up the logic board.
