Question about Apple iBook G3 Mac Notebook
Sounds like the famous video card chip error (the video chip isn't soldered well). If you have Applecare, Apple should fix this for free. If you don't, you could try to put a coin on video chip (with the ATI logo), so the coin pushes the video chip down.
Or you can try to solder it yourself again, try this link: http://geektechnique.org/projectlab/726/diy-obsolete-ibook-logic-board-repair

This is an old G3, from 2001-2003ish? Sounds like the old logic board problem. There was a recall... had mine replaced 3 times.

You may need one of these connectors:
