I've searched everywhere, and i can't find a thread or video about removing the whole top portion of the mbp off. all i have found was how to replace the screen, but not the actual top with the hinge etc. when i close my mbp, the top part isn't aligned properly. the right corner of the bottom half of the unibody shows, while the left corner has a portion of the top portion overlaying the botom portion. hopefully that makes sense. is it hard to remove the whole top? how do u do it? is it worth risking my warranty?
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.

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.
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.
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.
The underside of my MacBook has been recently getting ridiculously hot but seemingly only the top-left portion of it, not the battery or the optical drive. I installed the iStat Dashboard widget and it gave this:
I have a Macbook with 320GB HD, which I previously stopped using and passed over to my wife. When doing that, I created a new user for her and deleted my old user and the associated folders and files. This was a few months ago. Lately I noticed my wife's HD is too full than I would expect, so I started trying to clean it up using all the recommended SW. No matter what I did (reveal hidden / system files, use designated applications etc.), I could only find ±100GB worth of files. So, the Disk Utility shows the HD has one partition of 319GB, out of which 292GB are is use. When I search for files, I only get ±100GB (indcluding everything).
I did "Verify Disk", "Repair Disk", "Repair Permissions", emptied caches, trash -- still no sign of the missing ±190GB. The same when I ran the disk utility prior to logging in (using CMD+R during restart).
I have a feeling this is somehow related to the deletion of my old user/profile. Can it be that this portion of the HD is not accecible to my wife's user/profile? And so these files cannot be accessed?

After creating a new email and send successfully, breakdown of the full content in the mail will appear in the trash box without my intention. The breakdown were in separate uncompleted mail/mails depending on the length of the email. Everytime after a simple email of about 3-5 sentences comprising of less then 30 words, 5 - 10 separate trash box mail appeared. it worst when duration is longer while creating the email.

I have a macbook pro 13 (The new 2010 one). What software would you recommend that would allow me to screen record a portion of my screen that is playing a 720P video. Basically I'm for the best screen record program with:
-High quality capturing (720P) -Portion of the screen capture(Not the whole desktop) -High frames per second capture (not jerky, but smooth)
I expect to make some compromises but I'm just looking for the best software that will fit the most of my needs.
I've got a large PDF document where I only need a few pages from the original PDF to email out. Is there any open source or freebie software for OSX that can help me out here? Its only a one-off so I'm trying to avoid paying out for something (and also I'm a cheap-skate!)
I need to upload just the months September 2008-June 2009 to a website. Actually, I'd prefer to save this file in some way to send to someone else to upload. I can't seem to find a way to do this! Can this be done w/Ical? If not, does anyone know what software I can use to do this (Word now uses Entourage when I try to make a calendar with it & I have the same problem w/Entourage!) We don't need/want to upload the whole calendar.

I've had my White Macbook for the best part of about a year now, and I'm really pleased with it. Recently though it's been getting a little sluggish, I checked the specs out and I have 1GB of RAM on board, I though fair play, and got a 4GB Kit. I've just plugged it in and it's only displaying 2GB on board.
I could understand if it maxed at 3 as I am only running a 32bit OS and it wouldn't be able to index the extra gig. I'm now looking closer at the RAM Modules and its saying that they are 1GB each. It seems as if one of my DIMM Slots isn't working, any ideas what I can do or is it back to the Apple store for a hefty repair bill?
When I turn on my macbook pro I can only see 1/2 of the screen. I can see the right hand side of the screen, but the left hand side is black. Nothing will show up in the left hand side (cursor, window, etc.)
