Question about Apple MacBook PC Notebook

Screen lines on MacBook.

I have recently brought a MacBook, and have noticed that there is diagonal lines across the screen. These lines can be seen more clearly on lighter colours, and very clear on a white background. They are clearer in the top left hand corner of the screen. The following picture shows the issue;

This is is the second MacBook I've had (one had to be returned to the store because of a faulty airport card), and they have both had these diagonal lines across their screens.

    Is this normal on the macbooks? If not does this means I should try and get a repair or replacement?

    I have the same problem.

    There is an archived thread myself and others posted in on apple's boards:
    http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa...

    Several people planned to take it in for repair but I havent heard if warranty covered it or not. I plan on taking mine in in a week or so. I cant stand this flaw. It makes the screen appear textured and makes graphic design impossible. I consider this a very obvious flaw. I'm just hoping Apple agrees and fixes it without a huge hassle.

    Please let us know your results if you try to get warranty to cover this and I will do the same.

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.

Macbook Screen Error


Does it only show up when the computer is on? There were a few reports of several MacBooks having video card issues that caused this problem. Take it to an Apple store and have a Mac Genius look at it to confirm.
