Hey. Yesterday I was on my computer and all of a sudden my screen got all fuzzy and froze. I turned it off and turned it back on. It went back to normal but a few minutes later the screen got fuzzy again. Does anyone know what my problem might be? Its only a few years old. I have an Ibook with OS X Panther.

What kind of iBook? G3 or G4? If it is a G3, go to this page (http://www.apple.com/support/ibook/faq/) and see if the serial number matches the replacement program. This sounds like a logic board issue, and since you say its a few years old, I'm guessing its a G3. :(

same thing happened to me not to long ago (iBook G3 900mhz dual USB). It was the logic board. I took to the local store and there were able to start the replacment prosses for me. I suggest takign it to a apple store or calling apple.

Two friends of mine just had that logic-board issue within 10 days of each other... I'd suggest you back up as fast as possible - smaller portions at a time seem best. And then you take it to a mac-doctor.
