    A long time ago a very very thin (about a pixel wide) neon blue vertical line showed up on my screen. Nothing made it go away and I noticed it doesn't show up in screen shots, so I don't think it's being displayed by the computer I think it's something to do with the screen. I was fine ignoring it and now a second has shown up, sometimes its blue and sometimes it's pink. Someone told me something similar happened to them when they were having graphics card issues. I have a 3 and a half year old iMac still on 10.4.11

    What could be wrong? if you have any questions feel free, thanks!

    EDIT:
    another note sometimes when I put my computer on sleep and then click on it the screen is all back, i can hear it running but the screen wont show no matter how long I wait and I have t restart it

    So what is that? Is it fixable or is my computer slowly turning into garbage? lol.

    Your computer screen appears to be dying, it should be replacable, take it into an apple store and see what they say.
