MacBook Pro :: Bottom Half Of My Screen Go Black And Most Of The Top Half Flicker?

Jun 23, 2010

I have a MacBook Pro with the 9600gt in it. Since updating to 10.6.4 this morning 2 times while playing java games i've had the bottom half of my screen go black and most of the top half flicker. I've had to hold in the power button and reset both times. The second time I closed the screen and reopened it, the screen was black but no mouse and nothing moved.

Any advice? Would this be something to do with my graphics card or possibly some error in 10.6.4?Edit:: This is software related to 10.6.4 update and only happens when I open up a java game in a browser.

MacBook :: Bottom Half Of Screen Flicking/flashing Lines?

Feb 8, 2012

my Mac started doing this a week ago. The bottom half of the screen flickers/flashes lines. If I leave it open on a flat surface and I touch the screen for a little bit, it'll go back to normal. When I close the laptop, put it in my case, and travel around with it, the next time I open it up it'll start flashing again.  

Info:
MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Intel Mac :: Left Half Of The Screen Would Flick And Become Darker Than The Lower Half?

Jun 21, 2012

At the beginning of last year I bought a 3.2GHz 27" iMac. About a month ago I noticed that, within about 5 minutes of starting my computer back up from sleep the left half of the screen would flick and become darker than the lower half (about 4 clicks of the light button lower). Sometimes the screen will flick to become even darker than this (but usually it returns to the 4 clicks darker after a short while), and sometimes it returns to normal only to go darker again.

IMac :: Screen Is Half Light/half Dark - How To Fix It

Oct 31, 2008

I started up iTunes, checked my email, and looked up to see the top half of my display drop about 15 shades darker than the bottom half! I called Apple Care who told me they had never heard of something like this before and advised me to call the nearest Apple Store. I did, and like Apple Care, they had never heard of this happening.

MacBook Air :: 13" 2010 Thin White Lines Across Bottom Half Of Screen?

Dec 9, 2010

Just received the new 13" macbook air yesterday and today have noticed some very thin horizontal banding lines across the bottom portion of the screen.

Has anyone else noticed this, or check to see if your one has this problem.

It is quite subtle but it makes the icons on the dock look as if they have a card like effect through them.

Easiest to check if you make your screen wallpaper the dark grey colour.

On this the top part of the screen seems consistent, but at the bottom part there is very thin white horizontal lines. I tried updating the software, but it seems to be the same - looks like a faulty display may have to send back,wondering if it could be fixed with a software update.

The strange thing is black and dark colours do not produce the effect it only shows up on greys or medium contrast colours like blue.

ITunes For Mac :: Half Screen Is Black When Watching Video In Full Screen

Sep 10, 2014

As the headline says the right half of the screen turns black when watching video content in iTunes on full screen. I can see the whole picture when moving the mouse a little but as soon as the navigation bar disappears the right half of the picture disappears too. It does not matter what source it is. Both podcasts and movies work (or do not work) the same. 

The problem doesn't occur for other player (VLC, XBMC etc.). 

I have the latest OS (10.9.4) and iTunes (11.4). The computer is MBP 13-inch retina, late 2012 if it matters.

MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2012), OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)

MacBook Pro :: The Entire Bottom Half Is Acting Like A Touch Pad?

Feb 25, 2010

Everytime I lean my wrist or hand on it, the computer acts as if I am holding down the click and trying to select everything on the page. It's very difficult to get out of, however about 50% of the time hitting escape works.

This has happened on and off for the past year but has been getting worse recently. Has anyone else come across this and perhaps has a fix? Th MBP is around 3 years now.

MacBook :: Late 2006 Bottom Half Of The Case Cracking

Aug 16, 2009

I have a late 2006 macbook and had the issue with the cracking case repaired today, however, Apple only repaired half of the issue. The 'top' half of the case was fixed (new keyboard, trackpad etc) was replaced and I am more than happy with it. The bottom half of the case (section with USB ports, bottom of the MacBook etc) still has cracks in it and clearly hasn't been replaced. Is this something that should be replaced as a manufacturing fault as they have done with the keyboard, palm rest, trackpad etc?

MacBook Pro :: Half Of MPB Screen Blanking Out With Vertical Lines

Nov 7, 2009

I have a late 2007 2.2ghz MBP. It seems that the video cable is failing, as I often open it up from sleep and get only half an image on the screen. Image capture does not capture this, so I know that it is hardware related. It does not happen on my external monitor.

It is getting more frequent, and has been going on for about a month, The warranty expired in late September (lucky me!)

MacBook Pro :: Screen Goes Black/Flicker On 9400m (Late 08 )

Oct 31, 2008

So I got a new Late 08 MBP 2.8 earlier this week. Everything has been great except that occasionally (once or twice an hour) my laptop screen will go black for about 200-300ms and then come back. Often only the top 1/2 or top 3/4 of the screen will go black. I was worried it was the LCD, but today I switched over to the 9600gt for the first time and the problem seems to have gone away. I generally code all day and havent been doing anything intense when the flickers happen, the CPU/GPU temps are also low.

I have an external monitor hooked up. Ive only noticed the problem when the external monitor was hooked up but then again 90% of the time I use the computer it has the external plugged in.

Also does anyone know if the 9400m's 256mb of memory is shared with the main RAM, ie if I am running on the 9400 do I only have access to about 3.74 gigs of ram?

Laptops :: Have An Intermittent Where Half Of The Screen Will Go Whitish With Lines?

I have a 17" MacBook Pro 2.16Ghz Core Duo with 10.6.2. I have an intermittent issue where half of the screen will go whitish with lines. A picture of my screen experiencing this is hosted at [URL]To return the screen to normal I simply have to close the screen and open it again.Unfortunately my AppleCare has expired, and my Apple tech is not sure of the cause. Any thoughts as to whether this is the screen, cable, or logic board.If it turns out to be the logic board, will the Core 2 Duo board fit into this case? If I have to replace the board anyway

IMac :: 24" Black Screen Flicker - Is It Lcd Fault

Jul 29, 2010

Recently i've started to experience my iMac screen flickering for approx 2 seconds, and then turning back on. I was wandering if this was a common problem with this model of iMac (purchased mid-09, 2.66ghz 4gb ram model). I had read of such a problem with the new 27", and in some cases even with the 21.5".

I have only recently begun to use the iMac for relatively graphically-intense tasks, and was wandering if perhaps it could be a dying graphics card (or perhaps it was always faulty, but the lack of intensity of any programs run never pulled it up originally?), or if maybe it was an issue with the LCD?
