Re: Screen partical fade

The inverter cable or lvds cable may be severed. I've recently replaced a display on a Titanium for this reason. If your machine is under applecare, you should submit it for lcd panel replacement. If your machine is not covered by applecare, they may charge you in upwards of $700 for the procedure. Depending on 3rd party apple service locations in your area, you may have to source the part off your local craigslist, ebay, or a 3rd party site like If not, you can ship it to us in NYC.

Screen shrunk and can't be changed?

It sounds like the display somehow simply got set to a different resolution. Open System Preferences / Displays and choose a resolution that satisfies you.

The bottom quarter of the screen fades out but when I adjust the screen it comes back. I think it may have to do with the connection between the bottom of the screen and the laptop? Any suggestions?

It sounds like your screen is going bad - if the whole screen was having an issue, I'd say it may be a cable, but when only a section starts having issues, it pretty much certainly points to the LCD itself being bad.

You are not missing anything, it sounds like the OS X software is not functioning correctly, do an archive and install on the computer and it should fix your problem.

This is nearly impossible to diagnose via the Web. It sounds like the logic board is at fault, but not necessarily.
