[quote=“irishstu”][quote=“Limey”]Not yet, He can’t find the friggin’ problem. Says it could be to do with the desktop image being too low reolution. Sound like cow poo to me.
Guess I’ll get it back and just wait 'n see. It is unusually hot in my room, temperature can effect a Mac’s screen this way. Guess I’ll just have to run the mains cable into the fridge!
Hold on a second. Is the desktop picture the ONLY image that’s affected by all this??[/quote]
No, not at all. It is global. He returned it last night, saying he never saw the problem! I plugged it in and within three minutes we had the gremelins back. Tried unplugging all the cables, internet, mains, printer, mouse, speakers even the fan. Exaclty the same. took the lift down to the basement, the same. My fiancee has taken to to work - about two miles away - not a problem, gone, nada, squit, fuck-all!
The PC (which I’m using now) is fine I can only assume that there is something interfering with the Mac at this location. If the engineer can’t replicate the problem in his office, and the problem doesn’t exist in another location, then it must be something effecting it in this location right? Right.
Solution? Cover the thing with cooking foil? Don’t use the Mac at home? Continue to use the borrowed machine, and hope the problem doesn’t happen when we move out? I don’t know. It’s just frustrating now!
The Mac works fine, but I don’t want to risk damaging it if the screen continues to react like this, so I’d rather not use it.
The engineer is going to the office today and will have another look for me - however, what can he do if there’s nothing to look at?
