    I have no idea what happened, but all the sudden my screen started throwing weird shapes and colors at me - like it was all jumbled and messed up. it went back to normal after i'd switch spaces, but then would start up again. it did it about 10 times. i shut it down and restarted and so far so good. but i don't want it to happen again.

    i have a macbook pro c2d 2.16 running leopard.

    any ideas what this is all about?

    How very strange. There's not much you can do if it was a one-off, but write back if it happens again and outline what exactly you were doing at the time. :)

    I wouldn't worry if it only happens once.

    It does look like you shattered your LCD though. :D

    Kind of sounds like you're graphics chip overheating.
