Your profile shows that you're running 10.5.8 - is that correct?
Short of reinstalling the OS, I don't see what you can do - maybe upgrade to 10.6.x and hope that it goes away? Sounds like it's a graphics glitch of some sort - not sure if it could be fixed by upgrading your OS or not. It's worth a try - if that doesn't fix the problem then it's time for a trip to your local Apple Store.

I appreciate your suggestion and think I'll take your second suggestion. Been chiding myself for waiting so long to go with my begging bowl to the great Genius bar. Don't know if I'm ready to spring for the latest version, since everything else I need seems okay. You know how it is, it seems so simple: "If I could just get the key word the answer would pop up."
It's really nice to know there is someone there reading these questions! Last time I asked a question I must have clicked on something incorrectly: my Inbox was flooded with replies, none of which even slightly addressed my problem, as you have.
Thanks again and happy Sunday!

You, too - I would think about upgrading to Snow Leopard (10.6.8) as it's the most stable OS that Apple has put out in awhile (kind of like XP Pro for Windows...) and ir's only $20 to upgrade. I don't know that that would fix your problem, of course, as it could be hardware/GPU related, but it would be money well spent, I think...
