    So frustrated right now... what do you guys think is causing this:

    My warranty had just gone out last month and now it's doing this. Great. (The laptop's still fine, it's just the screen is just so fuzzy unless I do Excel or Word that when I do use them the lines are cut by 90% and I can see the whole worksheet; thank God because I can still work on it).

    Apple support in Singapore called and did test it and confirmed that they see it fine. I also did a screenshot and it was clear. This is weird since I used it this morning then when I went back to use it again, the screen acted weird. I tried restarting and resetting VRAM but none worked.

    Also, should the stain be visible when the laptop is being used? Mine isn't...

    Had my macbook pro 2015 repaired because of this issue twice already. Good thing the 4 year coverage on my unit lapsed 3 days before I sent it back again for repair. :X3:
