    Help~
    I have a G4 Powerbook and yesterday the screen went crazy. It looks like it's on a bad TV channel. The startup gray screen comes up in funky green.
    When I connect another monitor I can work fine on the computer. It is just the screen.

    Can anyone help me please????

    Probably a loose connector inside the computer. Take it to your local Apple store.

    Don't want to sound stupid but a " loose connector", is this something I can do?

    While it is possible for someone to do (obviously, because a technician has to), it's generally not considered a user-fixable part. It involves taking apart the screen and possibly the entire base of the laptop depending on where the problem is. You might be able to find guides on how to do it, but I would recommend a trip to the Apple store, especially if you're still under warranty.
