hey guys i have a 2012 macbook pro 13 inch and i keep running into this glitch about 3 x a week. Its getting really annoyying now. When i turn it on i get a scren of black  grey static. The sound isnt affected , i hear everything normal. Only thing that makes the static go away is tilting the screen back and fourth a few times then the white screen comes up with the apple logo in the center . PLEASE HELP ME THIS IS MY FIRST MACBOOK ANY INPUT IS WELCOME.

    Make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store to have the machine tested.


    Back up all data on the internal drive(s) before you hand over your computer to anyone. If privacy is a concern, erase the data partition(s) with the option to write zeros (do this only if you have at least two complete, independent backups, and you know how to restore to bare metal from any of them.) Don’t erase the Lion recovery partition, if present.
