Sounds like you'll be needing a new monitor in the near future.

I am grossly computer illiterate compared to some of you. Could you tell me were these magical pins/wires are, and how to fix them (Macintosh Monitor, If it means anything)?

Turn the computer and monitor off, then unplug the cord that runs from your monitor to the main computer box. Plug it back in, then fasten the screw fasteners to affix it in place. If the problem is just a loose connection, this should fix it. If not, I see shopping in your future...

My ex-work computer used to do that. Since it was hooked up to a Linux computer as well as a WinNT computer, all that I had to do was switch to Linux, flip to a new virtual screen, start X11, and voila -- this reset the video card and all was well. If you can't do that on your machine, try rebooting or power-cycling. This is if it isn't just a loose cable as others have suggested. Also, it could be that your monitor is at its life's end, too. . . .

I've seen this problem before. Hopefully it's only a loose connection somewhere. Otherwise you will be buying a new monitor. I saw this once when one of the electron guns inside went out. Not cheap to fix.

Stubbs, Is that an Apple 15" MultiScan (or MultiSync)? If so it is toast. These were built by Sony and sold under an Apple brand name. (probably with your Perfrom 6300 something) Basically one of the color guns (red green or blue) that project the image is shot. It will conitnue to function indefinitely unitl you get a new one, thought the green remains.There is not an electronics repair shop that can fix it, parts are no longer available for this model. I managed an Apple retailer for 3 years. Any 15" monitor will work as a replacement, but will require a Mac to VGA adapter. Any CompUSA can get you a new monitor. Honestly, if you want to stick with a Mac your better off on a new iMac. Or any new computer at this point really. Sorry about the bit of bad luck, Zaz Email me if you need anything further
