New MacBook Random Shutdown Problem
Happy Thanksgiving obviously first of all, but what better way to start my turkey day: I was online and pulled the MagSafe to go show something to my family and when I did that, I got the "You need to restart your computer" grey screen. Now when I go to restart it a few things will happen. 1) The computer starts up and runs for 1-2 minutes then the grey screen pops up with about 4 columns of thick horizontal lines. 2) The computer starts to the apple and the spinning wheel then gets the columns of lines. 3) I just get the white screen and nothing else indefinitely. Is this a firmware problem or am I f$*#ed? I am 3000 miles from home right now, so I can't pop in my backup drive and see what is going on and I have things to do before work on Monday. Any help is appreciated, I will be checking from the same type of computer that Satan does, a Dell, so you understand my pain in saying that I want to do whatever it takes to fix it quick.
