    Unhappy Fullscreen video screen trouble SOS!
    When i watch videos in fullscreen and with some games i see some lines like the screen color going horizontally from up to bottom, how do i take them off or how do i upgrade the driver of the intel gma950 video card, i cant find the solution!! this is so annoying!!


    P.S: the lines are not white, nor black they are just lines, like a sort of distortion. I think this is the video card which sucks intel gma950 and is there a new driver i can get?

    You can not upgrade the driver for the GMA 950. What you're describing sounds more like a hardware problem. The next time that happens, take a screen shot. If those same lines show up on the screen shot, the GPU may be defective. And since the GPU is soldered to the logic board, that might mean a new logic board. An expensive repair.

    ohhh damm it!! that really sounds like a problem! i tried like 15 min ago but i cant take a screenshot because its to fast to get captured, but like i mean i can see it but the screen shot cant!!! ill try later taking an actual picture of my mac screen.

    dude thanks a lot, do you think apple may be able to repair even if the warranty already expired like 5 years ago?

    I have had this problem when I used Windows XP on a Boot Camp partition. It sometimes appeared and sometimes not. Ever since I installed Windows 7, though, it stopped happening.

    Oh!! I forgot to mention that that only happens when my MBP is plugged into a monitor using a DVI cable.

    Well, I didn't realize that happens with you in games as well. It happed to me when playing movies, and using a different media player worked as well.

    Seems to me like you have a driver issue. If it still persists, I'd try backing everything up on an external HD, formatting the computer, and reinstalling the OS.
