    So I've already had two logic boards replaced on my iBook G4 and now the warranty is coming up this January. Recently (it's happened a couple of times so far) the screen has just been going black. I can see the makeout of what was on the screen but it looks as if the brightness were at the bottom setting. Nothing resolves the issue except restarting the machine.
    What is wrong with my computer and I am also nowhere near an Applecare center so I am not even sure what I could do if I figure out what is wrong...


    Well I hope someone can help me out -- thanks for reading and trying to help.

    Best can call Apple and let you get your money back or give you a Macbook. Afther 3 times you can do this. Just act a little silly how much you are affected by this issue;) Youll get a new one.

    The Dutch government has found Apple guilty of selling ibooks with a faulty logic board design just 2 weeks ago and has ruled that apple repair all ibooks brought to them with this problem or simply replace them. It was all over the net, look it up.

    Bring it to Apple, and they can check it out.
