I'll start off with specs: MacBook Pro 15" (Mid-2006) 2 GHz Intel Core Duo 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM OS X 10.5.6 ATI Radeon X1600 128 MB Boot Camp w/ XP SP2 Installed OK so I've had my MacBook Pro for almost 3 years now. It's always ran excessively hot. When I first got it I took it to the Apple store and they said "that's just how it is". Fair enough. Last year around December I started getting these weird lines across my screen of messed up pixels. Sometimes they disappear, sometimes they stay, sometimes they multiply and move around. As far as I can tell it happens when the heat increases. Around this time last year my MPB would completely freeze for utterly no reason. It would always occur after I started getting the messed up pixel lines. Sometimes I would be able to move the mouse and other times not. The shortcut for force quit will not work. Sometimes I get the beach ball, but it freezes there. Sometimes my screen will flash and then start to fill up with white and increase in brightness until I do a hard-restart/shutoff. Over the last year these problems have occurred more and more often. I have reset my PRAM and NVRAM, reinstalled OS X (starting from earlier versions as well), installed smcFanControl and ran it at an increasing rate from 1,000 RPM to 6,000 RPM just to keep cool and purchased one of those USB cooling stations. None of these have helped. It has gotten to the point where this happens at least once if not 3 times per day and it happens at any temperature. Just now my screen filled up with orange and I've never seen that before so I thought I'd come here and ask for some advice. If you're wondering why I haven't taken my MBP to an Apple Store: A- I needed it for classes (I'm in college) B- At the end of classes I went home for the summer (Where there is no Apple store). The semester ends in a couple weeks and I will be staying in town for the summer where there is an Apple store. Does anyone have any idea why I'm having this problem or what it actually is caused by? Is there anything Apple can do to fix this? It's obviously out of warranty but I'm not worried about that. I just don't want to have to buy a new computer. Thanks for your help -M0bile In terms of the screenshots, these pictures were taken with my iPhone. The screen itself was filled with that bright orange color at the top of the second picture. My screen does something similar in white and it has also occurred in an off-green/white color. The messed up pixel rows are shown as well. They show up on my desktop and have shown up in all of my programs (however not all at the same time). They never cross into other programs.
