    I have recently got a powerbook 1.25GHZ off ebay that had a display problem. I was wishing it was the actual display and not a problem with the logic board. Turns out it is the logic board as when i connect an external display i get the same result.

    Anyone seen something similar? I guess it is just the vga because the laptop seems to work fine. Is there a way to fix this? Some heating on the GPU or something? Or only with a change of logic board will get fixed?

    Your video card that is soldered onto your logic board is going bad.

    I'd probably try for a faster logic board replacement, i.e. a 1.5 or 1.67ghz board (the ones with DDR not DDR2 ram)

    I'd just buy another PowerBook if I were you. Logic boards understandably aren't cheap and they are a lot a hassle.
