I'm having display issues with my 1.33 GHz PowerBook G4. The screen is fine because the screen looks the same as when I have it connected to a monitor. This problem would happen sporadically for a few months, but now it is 100% of the time. Here's a screen shot...any ideas???

When you say that, that means the image is messed up on the monitor as well, right?

Looks like there is a graphics problem, which means a new logic board is probably needed because they are all soldered together...uh oh
