    yeah try that link, but basically the logic board is the computers way of understanding video and bassically what ya see. this has actually happened to my school g3, its also called no video or so i have heard. The cost to repair really varies. i would say from 250- 450 it really depends on the deal ya get and that 450 was before apple relized the logic board failures. i would say anything more than 250 now is just a ripp off. it is a established problem. you might also want to check with apple they might be able to deal with it if they are in a good mood. i realy hope for the best(good luck) They might, if ya pitch a fit, even replace the whole system
