Question about Apple PowerBook G4 Mac Notebook
I have been using a Powerbook G4 15" 1.67 GHz laptop for last four years.
Very recently there came out a problem with the screen:
The whole screen is blurred like one pixel around each one.
As if this is not enough, when I move the cursor downwards, just when the arrow is passing around the middle, pixels in the lower half part of the screen get sharper. The revers movement does the opposite.
Now, this is quite annoying and makes me concerned about the graphic card.
I would appreciate it, if I could get any advice from you.
Thanks very much in advance.
There is/was an issue with the graphics card for a series of G4 15" Powerbooks ... I don't know that Apple would still honor it, but at least you could go to the site; they posted the serial numbers involved. ...

Well the issue isn't with the graphic card. It actually is the screen of the PB (PowerBook). I had somewhat of the same issue about 6 months ago on my 17" PB G4. But when it started to do that with mine, the screen would also make sharp vertical lines when opening and/or adjusting angle. So before my Apple Care warranty expired I had the screen fixed FREE. So, if you do have your Apple Care warranty still and not expired, I'd suggest to you to find a Apple Certified computer shop or the nearest Apple store and drop it off with the explanation to have the screen replaced. Otherwise you will have to pay a pretty penny.
And if you do not have the warranty then i suggest you not to take it to a Apple store due to the extreme cost of a new screen on an old machine. Instead goto ifixit.com. This site is great for anyone who has anything portable from Apple (including the non-portable MAC-mini) for replacement or upgrade parts, cheaper and also helps with the install (DIY instructions and pictures to go with it)
