Thread: Macbook has graphic problems

    Macbook has graphic problems

    I have a pretty old Macbook (early 2008) and it recently started happening that sometimes the screen of i.e. an open firefox windows, or skype, gets completely messed up. Once I close the program and reopen it, everything is fine again. This happens from time to time. Could it be that my graphic card is damaged? Does any one have any experience with this?
    I attached a jpg to show you how it looks like. Help would be appreciated!

    Try booting the computer from an OS install disk or an external HD with the Mac OS installed on it.

    If the problems disappear...then you have a software issue on your MacBook's internal HD.
