Hello everyone! I'm looking for some advice on a recent issue I've been having. After heavy use I tend to close my MBP lid when I'm off doing other things. When I come back to my laptop and open the lid, this is the screen I get.

Screen image

It has only happened after online gaming sessions or after watching movies. It doesn't happen 100% of the time. I'm under AppleCare until near the end of Jan 2015. I'm concerned because this is an issue that is just starting and my warranty is up very soon. I don't know how to describe this problem without just showing the image linked above.

My computer stats: MBP stats

Does anyone have any suggestions about what may be going wrong? THANKS!

Your graphic card is failing, take it to the nearest Apple Store immediately and have them address it..
