    Sounds like a hardware issue. Take it back to Apple. Have you dropped the machine or anything like that?

    Sorry, I'm not God ... cannot help you, and you may be on hold for a long long time.

    But with iBooks and screen problems, look to see if your machine is in the extended warranty program.

    Do you have an external monitor you could hook up to the iBook?

    Do you have another Mac and a firewire cable, or the mini-DVI -> VGA adapter?

    At this point I think you can safely assume that you've lost your work.

    Try the external monitor as suggested.

    How did the screen 'fall off' in the middle of a video edit?

    Were you being naughty?

    mcarnes' response is very funny. I am not sure though that this is the right forum for where the repsonse leads.:eek:
