Faulty Screen? Faulty Machine?

every so often, maybe once a day, my screen will (in the blink of an eye) go white, then resume as normal. Which isnt a major problem for me, but 3 times over the last 4 mounths ive been presented with this (Please see images below).
When this happens my Pro is rendered completely useless, cant save or anything (I can move my mouse, which is displaying a colourful beachball; only just see it though).
Will apple do anything about this? I am a web designer, and its just my luck that it will happen while im working on soemthing.
Fortunatley, this time, I was just playing WoW
Thanks for any help !

Usually (and almost always) when your screen does that randomly, it's due to your GPU/Video Card memory being bad. You could try reloading your video drivers/Sofware and see if that helps. If that doesn't help, and your machine is under warranty, I would send it back to be fixed ASAP. It will only get worse as time goes on.

well at least you have some pictures. take it to apple, tell them youd like a replacement logic board. i see no reason in them not doing it for you.2.4ghz Unibody | Hitachi 320GB 7200 | 256MB 9600gt
