iMac Starting to Fail ??

    My old white intel iMac has recently started random lockups, the screen freezes (although the mouse works) all applications do not respond or the keyboard around the same time i have been getting lines across the display.

    I initially put it down to the system needing a fresh install to remove all the rubbish, so this morning i carried out a fresh Snow Leopard install, all went well then 2 hours after the fresh install with it all set up again i go the lines back and then a system lock up.

    Bugger :mad:

    im thinking this could be caused by over heating (dust on the processor fans etc..) as this iMac has been run 24/7 for the last couple of years.

    does anyone have any thoughts or should i start pricing up a new one ?
