    Hi. Here my power mac has been exhibiting graphics problems for well over a year now. I replaced one of the graphics cards recently and it seemed to work for a while now it's doing it again. There seems to be issues on both of my screens.
    Is there possibly a battery issue? I had read something about that.

    Here is my set up:
    Hardware Overview:

    Model Name: Mac Pro
    Model Identifier: MacPro4,1
    Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Xeon
    Processor Speed: 2.26 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 2
    Total Number Of Cores: 8
    L2 Cache (per core): 256 KB
    L3 Cache (per processor): 8 MB
    Memory: 8 GB
    Processor Interconnect Speed: 5.86 GT/s
    Boot ROM Version: MP41.0081.B07
    SMC Version (system): 1.39f5
    SMC Version (processor tray): 1.39f5
    Hardware UUID: F5FFBEEE-D142-5D34-A148-E4072A40E279

    Thanks for any thoughts. It's driving me nuts and bringing work to a standstill.

    You have two obvious issues here:
    1. You are calling your MP a G4!
    2. You don't list the video card in the computer, beit a G4 or 4,1
