    MacBook Pro blue horizontal lines error
    Hey everyone
    I'm having troubles with my macbook pro i bought about 2 years ago.
    I've uploaded a video on youtube thats shows how it's behaving...
    YouTube - MacBook Pro blue horizontal lines
    When I recorded the video I could wait a while and then start it up again, now I can't even start it.. The blue lines is the first thing that pops up.

    It's a 15 inch, 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, Version 10.5.6

    Hope someone can help...

    There is a known defect with the NVIDIA GeForce 8600m chip that powers the graphics subsystem of your MacBook Pro. It can manifest itself in a variety of different ways and this is one of them.

    Apple has extended the warranty to cover this specific problem for an additional 2 years beyond your original warranty. I would either set up a Genius Bar appointment at your local Apple Store or contact AppleCare directly.
    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!

    Okay... That sounds fair enough.
    I think I'm gonna head down to my local store right now.
