My iBook screen has got funky.. help
My iBook G4 14-inch last rev, which i had since Sep 05, has suddenly got wonky. My screen is all messed up with huge white streaks and funky colors on bottom half of the screen. And top half is fine.
I think I have to call Apple Care. Any pointers? Will I be covered?
Also, I don't have my hard drive backed up and I am not sure how to do it. Could I take it to the apple store which is an hour away and ask them for help?
It has always been handled with care and no dents or drop-offs or anything.

Do you have an external hard drive at all? If you do, I use a little program called SuperDuper that makes a bootable clone of my hard drive (so you can just load your copy onto a new hard drive and start up where you left off).
If you don't have an external, perhaps another computer and a network that you could send the important stuff to?
As a last resort, do you have a superdrive, or an external burner? You could burn your important data to a DVD for safe keeping.

On a note related to the post above, I also recommend Carbon Copy Cloner.
When I get sad I stop being sad and get awesome. True story.
