Question about Apple (661-2795) for iMac Motherboard

1 Answer

Imac G5 My computer is freezing up and then the lines across the screen also. Lines kind of like newspaper print. But my computer doesn't last long. So is it a video card and why does it freeze up. Not a geek so need plan answers. Can I just change a video card? Mac Geeks say it is hard to do and is connected to mother board so you need a whole new motherboard??? Is this a Mac problem... My computer is 3 1/2 years old but had this problem at year 2 1/2 or 3. Can I save this computer or just buy a new one. Help.

What can I do to stop by iMac G5 LCD screen from being pixelated and getting dark blue and pink horizontal lines across it?


This very likely a failure in the LCD screen. If you are seeing thin or wide bands, vertical or horizontal across the screen, then you will need to have the unit serviced to repair or replace the screen. If the unit has been dropped or struck (hard) it is possible the connector cable for the screen has come loose, but this is not usually the issue. If the unit is still under warranty, get it serviced. If it is not under warranty, there are several good web sites that provide Do-It-Your-Self instructional videos as well as parts, both new and refurbished and used. If you google your specific model and "screen replacement", you will see a number of results appear that would be of use.

My imacs screen wont show up what do i do?


get an external monitor and the correct dvi adapter and plug it in to te back and turn it m Make sure that in the >System Preferences>Displays you have mirroring turned on then you should be able to a least use your mac. My sister had the same problem this solved it somewhat She hides the iMAC behind the new screen. Only other solution would be to take the iMAc in and probably have the display board replaced which would cost you more than the new screen. You will still have the new screen to put on a new computer and use it as a second display.
I have two 24 inch displays on my computer

Monitor flickers with lines across screen


screen is going bad which is why its flickering and has the lines across the screen. Theres a board behind the lcd and when that doesn't process the voltage properly it can cause the screen to flicker. White lines across the screen means the screen is going bad. At this point unless your monitor is under warranty, go ahead and replace it.

Two thin lines


If your computer works fine with "lines" then you need a new LCD. If your computer does not work then you need to replace Logic Board.

Vertical line in imac 17" core 2 duo intel 2006 model


Attach an external monitor (you may need to buy an adapter to try this) and turn on Display Mirroring in the Display preferences.
If the same symptom shows on the external monitor, then you've got a video card problem. If not, I'd say you're screen has some kind of damage of failure.
Sorry, but either one is likely going to require a trip to the Apple Hospital.
At least with the display problem, you could use the external monitor until repaired.

G5 Graphics Card Freezes or begins to show lines on display


Since you are able to see your mouse pointer move, the display is refreshing so the problem is with something other than the graphics card. Generally software / OS related.

So assuming you aren't experiencing a hardware failure try the following...

Boot from the CD the computer shipped with.

Insert CD and restart the computer holding the "c" key
Your computer should boot from the CD

If so run disk utility from the CD and repair the disk as well as permissions. If there are any errors repair again.

If this is successful your computer "should" be repaired. If it is still freezing, use your CD to perform a Archive and install which should keep all your personal settings and installed software intact.

Cheers

White vertical line going through my IMAC screen


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.

Screen Changes and Comupter freezes


It may be possible that the power supply, display and or logicbpard may be having issues. Apple recommends resetting the pram and nvram. If issue persists reset SMU. YOur machine is 6 months outside of the original warranty, but if you purchased the 3 year extension plan, you may want to take action on it.
