    Screen corruption, HELP?!?!
    Ok, so I have a macbook pro over a year now and the only problem ive ever had is the battery but who hasent had a problem with them...anyway, a while back it had a nasty slip to the floor, and lately ive been suffering some screen corruption...after I give the screen a bit of a shake it goes away...but if I give the laptop a shake it comes back! I have opened this numerous times changing the HDD and have unplugged and replugged the screen connector, but no luck!

    any ideas on how to fix this or what is casing it??

    Sounds like a flex cable issue to me. You say it's been checked and is secure to the systemboard... did you check the back of the screen? It connects at both ends. Is the cable damaged in any way (tears or anything)? Does the distortion persist if you connect to an external display?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
