My iBook G4 is sick, help!

I turned it on just now and right after I logged in the screen went black. Not completely black, but kind of like what it looks like right before it goes to screensaver. Regardless, I couldn't see anything and it was seemingly unresponsive (I pressed the volume key to see if I could still hear the noise it makes in the hopes that maybe it was just my display). I attempted to close and open the lid to see if that would revive it but no luck. Finally I held the power button down and tried again. This time I got logged in and started trying to troubleshoot the problem and about 5 minutes in it happened again. Now it happens before the login screen comes up. What could be the problem here? I know it's not losing power because like I said the screen doesn't go completely black and the apple on the lid is still illumiminated when I close it (however the slow blinking light by the latch doesn't come on). I don't even know where to start with google here so anything anyone can offer is appreciated.
