Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop
WHEN I SIGN ON MY MAC G5, I GET ALL THESE LINES. HELP!!!
Vertical lines are problems that usually arise from either a bad lcd or video card ( GPU).
There is no fix, other than replacing the bad part.
If you want to do it yourself I've got service manuals, but unless you have experience it's no walk in the park.
Is it still under warranty?
You might be able to get an extended warranty through AppleCare.

You have a bad lcd.No need to reinstall you os.This is a known issue with some macs.I just completed 30 repairs on the same brand.Apple can't realy reveal a fix,however they will replace the logicboard,the lcd and the lcd cable if you are still under warranty.
