    First off I need to clarify that this is not a issue with the display, I just didnt know how else to describe it in the title.

    The other day I wake my 3 1/2 year old PowerBook G4 1.33ghz from sleep and both displays (the built in display and a 24 inch dell lcd) are displaying what I can only describe as looking like a Magic Eye poster. I can still see what is on the screen it is just very scrambled with all different colors. The machine also seems to still work as normal. I would include a picture but I am at work currently.

    So my question is what could it be? Logic tells me it is probably a video card problem but I really do not know too much about hardware. I was hoping to wait until after MacWorld to buy a new machine so any help would be appreciated.
