Video card But if the card is bad, why does my computer work 95% of the time? Isn't something loose? Also, any idea about how much a new video card for PB would cost?

To replace the video card you would have to replace the motherboard it is built into it.before doing so try removing all the ram chips on the underside in a compartment w/4 screws match the ram accordingly(go to best buy or even ebay)
its pc2700 ddr ram and probably pretty cheap right now just buy one stick if that fixes your problem its cheaper than spending 500 or 600 on a board replacement.

Cd in macbook wont ejec


This can be a problem. First try rebooting the machine, and holding the eject button when you hear the startup tone. Hopefully, that will force-eject it.
If that doesn't work, you'll need to get creative. Get a playing card or something similar, and put some rolled-over tape on one side close to the edge, so there's a sticky side out. Turn the computer off, and try to get the playing card into the CD drive, with the tape making contact with the stuck CD. Reboot, holding the eject button when you hear the eject button again, and pulling the card out. Hopefully, the CD will come out with the card. If it doesn't work, just keep trying, and you'll get it out eventually.
Generally what causes this is keeping CDs in the computer for an extended period of time, especially while the computer is powered off. Make sure you remove all CDs before moving or turning off your computer.

Using the trackpad on my Macbook Pro I cannot drag pics or files about the desktop. And my Preview has stopped working.


Best thing to do is use time machine to restore your computer to a time you knew it was working properly. If you have not backed up using time machine, a good idea would be to reinstall the system to see if things are working properly. it may take a while to reinstall everything, but could be a good process to watch the trackpad and if it corrupts when you install something specific. i know this might sound trivial, clean the trackpad and see if that makes a difference. good luck

Apple PB 520


Sure, the warranty on that machine was up over 10 yrs ago. Those laptop had a going life of 7-8 years, the internal hard drive that shipped with it, 4 at the most. It's called wear and tear and parts being outdated. So it comes down to how much your time is worth, what is it you choose to gain and the law of diminishing returns.

Apple laptop screen malfunction


Does this happen when you adjust the screen angle as well? Has the computer ever been dropped? Have you connected an external monitor via the rear video out port to see if the video card sends the similar anomaly?

Keep me posted.

Overheating PowerBook G4 17" 1.67Ghz


If you have AppleCare and your PB is less than 3 yrs old, take it in- that seems abnormal. It's really strange that your PB was heating up while it was shut down. THat indicated that there is s/thing wrong with the shutdown mechanism. Make sure the machine is hsut down before closing the lid. Let it rest a minute.
