Restart the laptop, if this still does not work check your video driver settings for anything that may be causing this.


If you still can't find anything try updating your video drivers.

This also may be caused by the GPU failing, if that is the case there is very little you can do about fixing this.

Check the video cable, sounds like something has come lose.

As a long-time OS X user, could you elaborate on how you update the video driver (other than updating the OS)?
