I've been having my i'mac G5 for about 8 months the past week the screen when loading the computer gets glitches, where the screen becomes where pixelated. When the computer finishes loading I have parts of the screen with boxes of pixelated stuff are there but I can take a folder on the desktop and drag it around the screen and the stuff goes away, but when i load a program for example i photo it seems like it freezes and the glitches come again. if anyone can let me know of something please let me know.

Thanks
