    Broad vertical band on screen ..

    Does anyone know what has caused this ..

    A 30 mm white vertical transparent band on the left of the screen. :Sad:

    It appeared yesterday, I've tried recalibrating the screen and done software checks without resolving, I'm thinking it's maybe a hard ware fault with the video board ? ..

    see screen shot..

    edit .. doesn't seem to show up on the screen shot, is that significant ?

    This would suggest that the screen is faulty, not the video board, as the picture is there completely in the grab, but the display isn't showing what it is getting.

    Hardware fault on the screen - confirm by attaching an external monitor.:BigGrin:

    Thanks Bryan .

    pretty much conclusive then as the Apple hardware test didn't find anything amiss with the video board. :cry:
