Can someone help me with this?
 
2 Attachment(s)
I'm new to this forum and relatively new to mac. I bought a macbook pro last year and have been living happily ever after until about a week ago. Don't really know how to describe the problem, so I'll post attach a few snapshots.
This is happening all out of the blue. I have a suspect it may have a connection to google chome. When I ex. scroll down a website it might happen. And it affects everything. I'm not able to close any window or programs, and the "pixels or whatever I can call them" moves around when I move the cursor. But I'm not positive it's caused by chrome.. last time it happened when I used the "F3" key.
It's a huuuge problem right now, since I'm having my pathology exam in a few days and are totally dependent on looking up weird diseases.

Please please help me! Does anyone know anything about this? I've tried googling, but I don't know which terms to search for.

Appreciate all help I can get. :)

Running snow leopard it that may help figuring out what's wrong. :)

And I'm sorry if I posted this tread in the wrong place.

Hi and welcome to the forum..

Try following both these instructions

Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)

Resetting your Mac's PRAM and NVRAM

And report back to us

Cheers

Thank you! I've followed both, and will wait and see if the problem reoccurs today or tomorrow. It usually happens a few times during the day, so I'll know for sure tomorrow.
Yep, I'll report back!

Again, thank you! :)

I was thinking there was some kind of graphic-related hardware problem. Looks like I was wrong thankfully.

For the OP's peace of mind, I'm glad it wasn't too.......
