    I'm sorry, I don't know. But from just reading what you wrote, it sounds like a hardware issue to me. If it used to work fine and now doesn't, that probably isn't software, unless you (or your sister) have been installing stuff and changing settings in a big way. You might also try the powerbook forums at discussion.info.apple.com. Hope someone else can offer better insight...
