    I had a fault where my powerbook would not start up. Apple replaced the logic board and now the screen is a very strange colour and flickers.
    In the video I use the hot corner and the dog changes to the right colour but the windows do not. its very strange.
    I will have to take it back to apple in the new year but is there anything I can do to improve the image. Its so hard to look at like this.

    Weird. Maybe play around with the contrast settings in Universal Access to see if you can get it better, even if only temporarily. :)

    that was worth a try, didn't cross my mind.
    Unfortunately it still looks awful. Even turning it to black and white leaves the monitor with big green and blue patches.

    Crap. Does it get better if you change the resolution? :)
