    I recently had to replace my DC-in Board, i followed the instructions on the web and was expecting everything to be good.

    It wasnt.

    Ever since i have had a number of problems including:-

    1 9/10 times the computer does not boot up and i can hear the fan spinning very loudly.
    2 When it does boot up it will work for a time and then either the screen fades to white slowly or the screen gets scrambled.
    3 The other day it had a Kernel Panic.

    So on the advice of various people i tried to run the disk repair - didnt work
    i then tried reformatting my hard drive and now i cant get the thing on long enough to reload OSX

    Does any body have any ideas as to waht has happened because i really cant afford to send it back to apple.

    System info:-

    Apple iBook G4 14.1"
    40 GB HDD - now empty
    was running on 10.4.9 upgraded from 10.3 about a year ago

    Thank you in advance
