So how's the attached image (reduced size because all the tiny vertical lines caused it to be massive regardless of compression otherwise) for a severely screwed up desktop? I wake my trusty 1st-gen G5 from sleep to find the screen all screwy with oh-so-many tiny, jumpy vertical lines. Not frozen, just ugly. "Crud, 10.4.3's acting up.", I think, and grab a screenshot (attached). Logout and back it, clears up for a minute then comes back. So I restart. ...and the lines are there as soon as the Apple appears. Single user: glitches. Open Firmware: Glitches. Hardware test CD: Glitches, and of course it returns an error on the VRAM check... that I can't read because of the glitches! The 9800 seems to have gone belly up, but I'm surprised that the errors capture in software screenshots--apparently screenshots come right out of VRAM now?! Anybody else had a failure like this? I'm hoping, since I've got me some Applecare, that when they replace the card it's with one that has a quieter fan--that bloody little whiner makes more noise than the other 9 in the box combined.
