Recently I discovered that when I applied pressure to the area near the trackpad, to it's left, it causes the screen to have different coloured lines and blocks, crashing the computer.


I fear that there may be a wire loose or something that is loose and there's lots of dust in that area.


Please help!


My comptuer is a Macbook Pro, got it in late 2011.


This just seemed to happen.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.1)
