Macbook Pro display failure

Barely 2 months old, my MacBook Pro 15″ started showing vertical lines on the screen.

At first i thought it could be due to the dedicated NVIDIA graphics card which i have it enabled all the time and i noticed it runs quite hot so the heat might have damaged it. Switching back to the integrated Intel HD graphics made no difference.

I sent it back to Machines service centre at Midvalley for repairs. The problem was later diagnosed as a screen problem and was replaced under warranty. Now the display works fine again. It might be a good idea to consider additional  AppleCare when the warranty expires.
