    Alright so I bought my Macbook Pro last July. And this problem sort of started with safari and kind of spread around to other applications. When I brought it to the Genius Bar they had no idea what the problem was so they said they would have to "stress" it over night to figure it out. They were clueless. More than half the time when I try to take a screenshot of this it just comes out all black. On rare occasions it'll work. I have no idea what this could be, all I know is that it first started happening in safari and now it happens all around, but still, mostly in safari. For example if I am in my gmail and I hit compose mail the whole screen will bug out. Or, If I am on youtube and click a video on the side the the whole window will bug out. Then I restart safari.

    That block on my desktop stays there until restart. When I click on things in safari or in that preview window those blocks kind of all move around.

    A few times my mac did that thing where the screen turns like grey with the apple and says computer must be restarted. When I turned it back on the time was set to December 31, 2000.


    My Macbook Pro is the 15" lowest model, I use it for video editing mostly.
