Macbook - Odd video problem at boot?

when i turn my MB on lately, i get this weird video problem. the screen starts off all black, no chime. a portion goes to bright white, while the rest is all vertical multcolored lines. bootcamp is on the laptop, along with an ntfs partition. im hoping it wasnt bootcamp, but have since uninstalled it, and will watch the video errors to see if they happen again.

the battery failed a week ago, now this is problem #2. im a little worried.


i have yet to see it on ac power, but never use ac really. what are my chances of getting an exchange unit. this one just seems to have some crappy problems.
QUOTE Thanks
