Yes…now that you discovered that it happens whether in Windows or Mac OS mode…definitely a hardware problem.

I would start by replacing the video cable (LVDS). Like you said…it's much cheaper.

I've never heard about replacing the display panel at the same time (I wonder what the logic is in that)?? The only reason I could think of why the display panel would need to be replaced at the same time as the video cable is…if the socket that the cable plugs into on the back of the display got damaged.
