Just noticed this today. When I open a Finder window and jiggle it around, this happens:

Safari does the same thing. A reboot didnt fix it.

The logic board was replaced only a couple of weeks ago (to fix the CPU whine). Any idea what could cause this?

edit: Machine is the MBP in sig

Does it do it in more than Finder / Safari?

Also are you able to plug in a second display to the machine? If it happens on the second display it's a video card / logic board issues and needs to be replaced.

Also - is the screen loose at all?

It does the same thing with an external monitor. And it actually seems to happen in any app when I jiggle the window around. It's also much worse in Windows, probably because the graphics chip is clocked higher.

Also left the machine off for 20 minutes to cool down and then checked again, still there. So it looks like the graphics chip is permafucked.
