Hi All

Hope somebody out there can help me.

This is my 1st Mac.

I've had my secondhand powerbook for 4 months now and absolutely love it!!!

My display has suddenly stopped working.
The brightness buttons still continue to lighten/darken the screen but the screen is just gray.
I can work ok with an external monitor.

I did read that perhaps reinstalling the OS might help but the machine hangs when i try to boot from the DVD.

Powerbook G4 1.5
Tiger 10.4.6
Original DVD

Hope somebody can help.

Thanks, Waggy
