g3 600mhz/ 640 mb of ram/ running osx 10.5

is within the serial range of the bad logic boards. (i've gotten apple to fix several unrelated problems for free because of this---though I'm pretty sure that

screen goes to black. comes back up again if I shake it and press on the down left corner of the base, under they keyboard, you know, where it gets hottest. I'm writing on it now, but if I move it the wrong way it goes to black again.

how bad is this news? any help in diagnosing this (and or offering solutions) would be very much appreciated.
