    Hi

    I have weird marks on my screen...I don't remember when it appeared exactly.
    Can you help me figure out what they are ?

    Thanks

    Did a reboot fix it?

    What model MBP do you have?

    If you continue to see graphic anomalies, the it may be the GPU failing on the computer :(

    No a reboot did not fix it.

    it's one of the first 17inch macboo pros.

    is there a way to test the GPU ?

    Thanks

    Most likely the GPU is playing tricks on you. What are your temperature readings? Is the problem persistent? Were you doing any graphic intensive work/running a lot of flash based content?

    this macbroo pro runs a lot of video feed, TV etc...so maybe it got hot I don't know !
