My iBook g3 works great, except for a newly developed video problem. When it is first turned on, the video is perfect. After about 10 minutes, the video start to flicker and the text is readable but it looks more like a PC is safe mode. Can anyone help?

It is probably an overheating problem. You may want to try blowing out the fans or going in and applying new thermal compound to the heat sink.

Thanks for the recommnedations. I went in and blew out the fan. The I also added the thermal compound to the heat sink. The problem still exits. It flickers then clears up. I can shake it and move it around and it will not start the problem. The problem just starts and comes and goes. Then it will clear up for a while. Considering the problem, the computer works great.
