Wonky Powerbook Display

Hi there. The display on my powerbook is showing a triple image. Everything is scrunched into the top third of the display, then the image is duplicated in the center of the screen and again at the bottom. Since this description has probably confused everyone, I've included a picture of what I'm talking about. Anyone know what the cause of the problem is?

Eek! It's most likely a hardware fault in my opinion (loose GPU cable or something), but try a quick PMU reset to rule that out anyway.
Some things are better mad...
