    It has happened to me three times. The center part of the screen, close to where the letter "t" is becomes unresponsive. Nothing around that part works on any applications. Once I restart it starts working again. Is it a software or hardware issue? I am on 3.1 and jailbroken. Thanks!

    I just bought a new monitor to go with my Unibody-MacBook. It's connected via a Mini-Display Port to VGA adapter. I am getting constant waves on the screen. Should this be happening? Will DVI make a difference as opposed to VGA? Oh and it's a Benq E2200HD. Thanks!
