    Bali humidity problem? scrambled screen
    I am in Bali and the weather is particularlyn hot and humid. I woke up my mac this morning ( to start writing) and the screen is scrambled.

    could it be the humidity?

    If so what can I do to get it working again?

    it is a 9 month old macbook pro.Any advice gratefully accepted. I have another week here and will be a bit stumped without my mac

    It COULD be the humidity (moisture in the computer). Your only real "solution" is to power it down, store it somewhere DRY for a while (buy a dehumidifier for the computer room if need be) and hope.

    It could, of course, be something else entirely.

    The maximum operating temperature for your system is 35C, and it can handle up to 90% relative humidity. However, if the temperature changes overnight such that the humidity condenses on the computer, that could be a problem.

    And keep a cheap bag of kitty litter around (look at the silica content) that will also suck the moisture out of the air.

    High humidity (and hot) for extended periods of time...with problems...has been posted about before (but not often). So I would say that it is possible...but I guess hard to prove...other than referring to the official Apple operating environment specs.
