Hi.

You need to test the Macbook using an external monitor.

If the picture is fine using an external display, then you have a defective LCD display. LCD panel must be replaced most of the times.

then you have a defective video adapter. You can go for the Mac OS update first, but I do not think that an update will help.

Solutions are contacting Apple support or attempting repair. Unless you have repaired a Macbook before I suggest first option.

Here links:

Mac book appearing half of the screen is usually as a result of display settings which have been preset on the unit. The display settings may have been adjusted to a low resolution and this in turn will make the unit to display poorly. Go to control panel and display settings to change the display settings and increase the screen resolution. This will make your unit display properly.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

2. Hook up Power Adapter
