This powerbook served me well for a long time, then one day, it wouldn't boot past the startup screen with the progress bar. Once the progress bar completed it's journey across, the screen would go black. The powerbook was still running, just no video.

Aside from the strange video issue, everything else works and is fine.

What's a guy to do?
