    Hi everyone.
    A few months ago Apple replaced the LCD screen on my MacBook due to a constant flashing of black and white. Everything was working fine up until a few weeks ago, the screen now will randomly form hundreds of vertical lines. These lines are always made up of whatever colors the website I am currently on is made of. This happens constantly when I first turn the computer on for the day, throughout the day it will settle down a little but it never completely stops.
    I have never dropped my MacBook, never spilled anything on it and I never manhandle it! I'm not sure why this keeps happening.
    I'm going to end up contacting Apple again once the holiday shopping craze calms down, but I figured I would see if anyone here has any ideas as to what could be wrong.
    Thanks :D

    Also, here are two pictures for reference.

    See what Apples says as this is hardware related.

    It clearly sounds like a graphics card failure. Hope your computer is under warranty (or you'll perhaps need to buy a new logic board, since the graphics card is soldered with the logic board).
