I just looked at my System preferences, In the one for desktop, there is a little box that says 'change picture'. Make sure to un-check that box.

My mcintosh screen become locked so I turned it off and waited about 1/2 hour before turning it back on. It took a long time before the screen turned blue and thats where it sits. Nothing else has pulled...

Try rebootint with your OSX disk in the dvd drive. then before you would hear the chime, press and hold the C key down on your keyboard. This will boot from the DVD and once it has finished loading (may take some time) will ask your to choose your language. After this go to utilities in the menu at the top and click on Disk Utility. When this opens, click on your hard drive on the left hand side (highighted in orange in picture), and then click repair disk and after that completes click repair permissions. (see picture)fairplay23.png After all of this shut down and restart your computer without the OSX dvd in the drive and it should boot normally.
Let me know if this works

Macbook turns on but screen is blank .the arrow pointer came on for awhile but went blank and stayed blank

Try holding down ALT while booting up and select Macintosh HD. If that doesn't work try inserting your mac osx install CD or DVD restart hold down ALT. Select the CD using the arrow keys after the CD has loaded go up to the drop down menus and go to disk utility, then click on your main boot disk (macintosh HD) and under the First AID tab (if your using osx) click verify permissions and restore permissions, then click verify disk and repair disk. Try to boot up. If this doesn't work restart leaving work mac osx CD in hold down D then follow the disk checker steps. This will tell you if there are any errors on your disk (hard drive). If there are you need to get it fixed or replaced. If none of this works you will need to buy a 8.1gb pen drive mac osx 10.6 update ($30 USD) then follow the instructions from to create a temporary start up disk. Then go to your old Hard Drive Macintosh HD (should be on the desktop) and copy/backup important files and then turn off and get a new hard drive try Ebay and ask if it will fit your macbook by using your model number found under your battery. Find instructions for install or take the hard drive to a pc shop and ask for them to switch them over. If they don't copy your old files you will need to do a fresh install with your mac osx cd/dvd.
Note: You can use the pendrive as a temporary for as long as you want, to select it hold down ALT at startup and select the disk thats not macintosh hd or a cd/dvd. If you can't find an 8.1gb pen drive get a 16gb pendrive. sorry about the URL the link button wasn't working for some reason

My screen moves (imjac)

Mine did that too. Did you recently hook it up to a projector? That seems to be what triggers that reaction on my mac. Anyway, the 1st time that happened, it went away after a couple days. Now, it's happened again, and I went into system preferences and changed the resolution. It has fixed the moving problem, but the icons are still bigger. I'm still working on it.
Hope this helps!
