Question about Apple MacBook Pro with 17" Display
Disassembly and replacement of top cover of laptop with new display
Posted by Anonymous on
If you haven't already replaced your disply, I suggest that you take a look at ifixit.com. They are an excellent source for DIY repairs on Macs.
I've successfully followed their directions for replacing the displays on several MacBook 13.3" models.
I'd give you a more specific link, but not sure if you have unibody or not... This link will get you in the right ballpark though: http://www.ifixit.com/Device/MacBook_Pro_17%22
Hope this helps & good luck!

This is very likely due to a problem with your video card, you can use Apple's Hardware Test to make sure though. You can find detailed instructions on how to use AHT here. If it is found to be, in fact, the video card; you may want to replace it. Find the exact specs of your specific Macbook (perhaps on the Apple website), find the exact model of your card and buy it from the manufacturer or a place like newegg, it should not be too difficult to replace.
