I've learned so much on this site, my friends now think I am somehow now a computer guru. Regardless I know nothing, absoutely zero about Macs. So this post for a friends computer( whom I have just about talked into joining this site. However, I had to admit I hadn't to anyone in Mac World since I dont own one) Therefore, all replies will be most appreciated.
I own a 2005 iMac 1.6GHz flat panel 17" running 10.3.8. Recently @ startup the screen will be nothing but all multi colered lines and dashes. If it the computer got through this and fully booted, icons, menues and dock are jumpie with less lines and spaces. Hardware test disk 2.2.1 shows no problems (even in extended mode). However when I startup machine in "Safe Boot Mode", problem goes away. Any ideas???
Thanks for any help
