green tint over entire screen

by saptime29 / December 13, 2010 1:59 AM PST

my iBook G3 900mhz now has a green tint that covers the screen. Everything else seems fine. Is this a video card problem? if so, does that involve replacing the mother board? Pleae advise.

Thanks in advance.

you could check that the video connector is securely in place before going down that very expensive route.
Also, if you are contemplating the replacement being done professionally, you might want to consider the purchase of a new Macbook.
The price difference will not be that much but the performance difference will be astronomical.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
