Re: Red line across top half of screen

Uh-Oh.. Sounds like the BGA RAM in the video circuit. (These units are Intel based and Core 2 duo if posted correct).. We can repair if you need help and its under warranty and sorry its not a home remedy situation..

My Macbook Pro fell off the coffee table and there is now a horizontal line about a 3rd of the way down the screen and the bottom and left side has lines. Is this fixable and what would it cost?

Whether it could be repaired and how much it would cost depends on how much damage was done. It is still possible to find replacement screens and cables, despite the fact this model was discontinued in October 2006. Here is one possible source Mac Screen Repair 24 Hour Screen Glass Replacement (shared for informational purposes only.) If there is also damage to the GPU or motherboard, it would make more sense to get another new or refurbished unit. The labor costs to find and fix anything more complicated than the display would be more than the laptop is worth, IMO, and it still wouldn't be reliable.

MacBook Screen Repair

well dont fret, sounds like you need a new screen. has them the cheapest ive found. replacing them does take time and alot of screws but is doable.
check out for instructions on replacing the screen for your specfic model. please take care when replacing the screen, there are alot of small part and screws. be sure to work at a clean table and make sure you have a couple hours to do it all at once. I did mine in two days and ended up with 7 extra screws when i was done :)

Screen lines on MacBook.

Sounds like dropped pixels.  My first guess is the computer has been dropped on its corner, with the pixel dropout radiating diagonally from the corner.
My saint bernard sat on my g3 lombard, and I have vertical pixel dropout because of it, from the top of the screen to the bottom.
And no, it is not normal for a macbook to have lines across the screen.
