    As Clinton tried to mention above...

     

     

    Issued today, 18 July 2012:

    MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Update 1.0

    "This update is recommended for all Mac notebooks introduced since June 2012."

    ^ Cool, yeah this is brand new I did not see this in software update yesterday. Showed up today though, downloading...

  • Dualcyclone Level 1 (0 points)

    Updated with this today, and immediately noticed I still have the problem.

     

    Another thing I have noticed is if my MBPr is plugged in and not charging, and closed, I get strange static off the lid, if I run my hand over it.

  • Grant Bennet-Alder Level 9 (56,679 points)

    I still have the problem.

    This thread is hundreds of complaints long. Could you please re-state the problem that remains as you see it.

    I get strange static off the lid

     

    That is often cuased by bad earth/ground at the power adapter -- a possible fault in your home/office wiring.

    The same problem I face is when I unlock my computer from sleep, the display has black blocks over it, and shadows form, and strange ghost windows

  • Nikolaus Heger Level 1 (25 points)

    The title is pretty obvious: It's about graphics problems with the retina MacBook Pro. The problem if you have it is also pretty obvious as your screen gets completely messed up, random chunks of your actual screen go in various places. It's in the original post, actually so even if this thread is long, the complaint is the same.

     

    I recommend this solution for now:

    1 - Install gfxCardStatus and set it to "Integrated Only". This fixes the problem.

    2 - Wait for Mountain Lion update which is coming next week - it should fix this issue, and others.

    Have you updated?

    If you have stair-stepped areas of screen artifacts including flashing areas or areas of black, that is certainly a hardware fault that should be taken up with Apple right away. I suggest your local genius Bar as the appropriate venue.

    The opening complaint on this thread is based on this screenshot:

     

    http://d.pr/i/elqX

     

    With blocky chunks of other on-screen windows appearing in rectangular areas of the screen.

     

    If you are still having these rectangular blocky problems AFTER the 18-July update, I think it also could be a different Hardware problem, and should be taken up with Apple (at least by calling AppleCare and describing the problem to them) so that you are on record as having a problem early-on. Even if they do not fix it right away, this may help your standing if a recall is issued.

  • Nikolaus Heger Level 1 (25 points)

    Since there are serious software gfx issues right now, I would not dare to say that anything is a clear hardware fault. At least as far as discrete gfx are concerned (again use gfxCardStatus to find out whether you're on discrete or integrated, it's free!).

     

    Visiting the genius bar for this very issue is at this point a waste of time. I'll do that when Mountain Lion is out and it's still not fixed.

  • jps24 Level 1 (0 points)

    Anyone still having this issue after installing mountain lion not sure if it fixes it or not. I have not had any problems since but mine only happened maybe once a day.

  • snaglepus Level 1 (0 points)

    Updated to Mountain Lion today. I think it has fixed the problem for me. I could recreate the problem everytime by using setting display to smallest setting, flurry screensaver, ensuring I was on the discrete graphics, and waiting for the screen to go to sleep and waking it up.

     

    Have let that happen 3-4 times today and its recovered perfectly each time. So far......

  • Grant Bennet-Alder Level 9 (56,679 points)

    smallest setting

     

    What resolution exactly do you mean?

     

    a) Smallest number of pixels on screen OR

    b) smallest feature size (largest number of pixels on screen)?

  • Joshua Pokotilow Level 1 (0 points)

    I'm still having problems after upgrading to Mountain Lion.

  • snaglepus Level 1 (0 points)

    Sorry - didn't explain that very well

     

    When I have Display scaling set to "More Space" (furthest to the right).

  • TerryBong Level 1 (0 points)

    I can't run Diablo 3 in 1980 x 1200. The screen will go fuzzy, 3d models are transparent and I can see through the ground - in Diablo .

     

    The download icon had graphical glitch too, it looks like it was being electrocuted.

     

    Is anyone else having this problem?
