I'm really pretty convinced my new MBP is fucked in more ways than one

    Well I ahd a thread about a week ago about it locking up a lot, like I mean fucking crashing, no beachball, I mean frozen solid, never had that happen before on my powerbooks. Had to hard restart. One time while itunes was playing it made this god awful noise like a cat having a partial birth abortion.

    However, I was running a lot of shit through rosetta at the time and since I finally got a copy of cs3, it hasn'tlocked up once. The MBP RREALLY REALLY didn't like using dreamweaver 8 lol.

    so i thought it was all good. However, now the fucking display seems funky. Its tough to descirbe but it like "chunks" things strangely and flashes parts for no reason. very tough to explain, but I took a few screens.

    there's something wrong with the cpu. go to the store and them you want another one. unless you bought it as a refurb then you have to call in and a box will be sent to you for exchange.

    that's happened to me.

    only thing I've tracked it down to is running a torrent program and safari at the same time :dunno:

    also, the time I originally got this problem was after installing ms office 2008 and I didn't remove 2004 first.

    try checking fontbook and deleting duplicates

    im convinced my MBP's battery is fucked. Its barely 1.5 years old and it wont hold a charge if i leave it on sleep mode (on the login screen w/ the lid closed) and it takes a shitload of time to charge back while using it. :ugh: :wtc:

    i rarely get a glitch in safari. Nothing else. Started after 10.5.2. My ipod gets a glitch gen5 after the newest firmware too, but its also rare. I have Ati in this machine, so, its a code thing for me. Try to reinstall os?
