Hey out there. I'm working on my brothers iBook G4, I'm not sure of the exact specs. He brought it to me saying one of his non-Mac friends was messing with it and messed it up. After he turned it on for me the screen was completely blue. I restarted it and once again it turned blue. We used it as a target computer because he needed files off of it, and we could access the harddrive via Firewire just fine (onto a host iBook G3 older comp).

After removing the firewire connection from the host G3 and his targetted G4, the screen only turns completely grey now after restart/start.

I hear the start-up chime as I turn on the laptop, and then it turns to a back-lit gray screen with a few semi-noticeable horizontal pixellated lines. It then turns progressively brighter until it turns fully "Apple-colored" grey.

How can I fix this!?

(Note: It is running Mac OS X, but I'm not entirely sure if it's 10.2 or 10.3)
