Is my video card/chip about to die?
The issue I am experiencing with my 17" MBP early 2011 occurs when I launch certain programs. When I launch Adobe Reader and other programs listed below, where the screen was white most white pixels change to pink. In the black areas it appears to be raining at approximately a 45degree angle from right to left, rain is green. This just started a few weeks ago. The same occurs with iPhoto, iDVD, iMovie, and Camera Live. No MS apps, including Powerpoint, cause the pink to appear. When I quit the program the screen returns to normal color. I am running OS 10.12.4 (16E195).
Is this a good question?
