    Your laptop is over five years old. It's probably experiencing some sort of hardware failure.

    Occasionally that happens to electronic equipment as it ages.

    If you have the hardware test CD, I'd run the diagnostics. Otherwise, I'd take it to a shop.

    Did anything get spilled on it? Try this:

    If that doesn't work(which I don't think it will)buy a computer new or with a warranty. And because you dared to slander the one true OS, you can't blame apple for your crappy used ibook going belly up. If you want to have that attitude head back to windows. Clearly you're not ready to commit.
