Video mucked up
My iMac G5 runs fine, but after booting, the screen either goes totally blank or displays multi-colored "hash". When I boot in safe mode, it works OK but you can still see some confetti in the background. I suspect that the video adaptor has some issues, but have no clue how to fix it, or whether it is even possible. I fear that the GeForce FX-5200 adaptor is some soldered-in chip that means replacing the motherboard, which basically means junking the computer.

At Aussimac's suggestion, I ran the AHT and sure enough, it reports a VRAM error. I plan also to open up the case and see if the caps are zapped, but in the meantime, the error it reported was as follows:
Is there a guidebook somewhere that documents what these thing mean, or does anyone here know what this one indicates?
Is this a good question?
