You got to open this thing up and make sure the speaker connections are on tight and clean all the dirt and lint around the speakers and connections. If that don't work then you have to replace the speakers or the sound/power board.
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)
1. Go to Support on Apple.com, search memory upgrades for your model and follow instructions for inserting the ram modules correctly. These MUST be properly seated and locked or strange intermittent bad stuff will happen. 2. At same time note make and type of memory from label, and double check that it is the correct memory from a high end maker. Macs do not like low-life sketchy memory. 3. Cables that go through the hinges are very fragile and subject to damage as well as wear and tear. Limit opening and closing display, partial or full. Titanium's have well-known hinge problems - do not let them get loose, and Google solutions if they do. 4. Find a nearby Apple store and make an appointment at the Genius Bar. It won't cost anything for a simple diagnosis or repair, and they are VERY helpful as long as you are too. 5. Parts: iFixit.com, and Google many others some with specific repair instructions on-line. I have a spare near new display cable for Titanium's, but replacing this part is extremely difficult for even most experts.
your lcd probably just went out or the connecting cable just came loose(its in behind the lcd under the apple logo that lights up when you turn it on) if you open and close it frequently it will cause this
It could well be the ribbon cable between the screen and motherboard is knackered. Depends how brave you are at dismanteling computers, if you search on powerbook parts you may be able to find a company that scraps computers who could sell you the cable if it is a separate item otherwise it will be an expensive Apple repair!
