Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop
I just noticed a white vertical line running the length of my IMAC screen. it is there even when i went on firefox. it was not there yesterday. it just appeared. this is my only ''working'' computer in my house and I rely on it. is this something that is going to get worse or can it stay localized to the one line and simply be a nuisance? The computer is about 3 years old. i do not know if it is a G4 or G5. my e-mail address is: email@example.com
The line is an indication that there is a failure in the display, most times the failure will be limited to the line you see but occasionally the problem will spread, causing more lines. the only way to fix it is to have the display replaced.

That is a fine example of how crappy mac screens are. I am a Computer technichion and I know how cruddy mac screens are if your computer is still under warenty try sending it away to a apple store

I'm having this problem too. About 3 weeks ago one line showed up and about every 5 days a new one shows up. I'm now at 4 lines. The Mac is 3 years old. I was hoping it would last longer than this! I wonder how long until I can't use it at all.

Same thing w/ lines. except I am having problems w/ my mouse. Well, I don't think its the mouse. when I have several windows up and trying to scroll on One particular window it will randomly go to another open window.
Now my Imac's hard drive just took a dive 5 mos. ago and I lost a lot of info. I had another hard drive put in by my ex husband, wonder if he pinched a cord???HELP!
