I have just bought Apple iMac PC with DualCore Intel processor. I have a problem with internet connection which is very slow and gets stuck with both Safari and Firefox brouwsers. Internet connection is cable connection (Enhet.) with external modem and service provider argues that there is no problem with the connection itself.
Also Skype does not work properly. Must be soffware or hardware problem. Virus??
Hi, when i try to reinstall the OS X software it restarts the computer but then it doesn't load the program. It just stays **** with the white screen with the apple in the middle with a constant loading circle... i dont know what's wrong. My airport is constantly disconnecting and only when I turn it off and back on will it work for about 10 seconds before losing its connectivity again (airport will still say its connected but i wont be able to look at websites or use internet) I'm trying to reinstall the entire OS X to fix this wireless internet problem..
Go to a download speed test site & test what your ISP is giving you.
I prefer www.toast.net
they have great, free performance tests, both up & down, with a nice set of options.
you can compare companies & email the results to your ISP
you might want to review all the network & firewall pref's as well...
Good luck... Ian

The issue you are having is one in Intel, the other is G3. This is how to do it. 1. put the cd/dvd into the laptop and restart the laptop in Target mode. 2. connect the laptop to the iMac with a Firewire cable. 3. Start the imac and immediatle hold down the alt/option key. 4. after a moment you will be offered a choice of start-up discs - one of which will be the CD/dvd in the laptop. 5. Start from the CD and then when asked, select the iMac drive as the destination. This ensures that the imac loads the correct version of the OS for its processor. Should work without a hitch.
There really are no user-serviceable parts inside an Apple keyboard.
If the keyboard is less than a year old, you can get it replaced for free under AppleCare (unless your problem was self-induced, like spilling a drink into it).
If it is more than a year old, I would recommend finding a replacement keyboard. Keep in mind that a Mac will work with any USB keyboard, and the software will let you remap the position of the command and option buttons to your taste.
Yes it is very easy to do as you are running a Mac with Intel Processor. You have Mac OSx Leopard with updates 1,2, & 3. To upgrade to Mac OSx Snow Leopard you must buy the upgrade. Go here:
On the top right click (Buy Now) You will have to pay $29 which is a bargain. Once you get the upgrade on CD simply follow the directions for the simple upgrade. I did the same thing when Snow Leopard came out. It is well worth the $29.
Pretty sure any size, but they use 3.5" SATA drives, not 2.5 laptop drives. iMacs only use desktop drives so get as big as you want, or can afford with a big cache. The 17 imacs are hard to get into so search the internet on how to get in and replace it and to put the heat shield back in right. Be careful not to break the clips.
There are several reasons why you could be having this problem. You first need to know a little about the various "flavors" of Apple computers and operating systems.
There are two brands of processors: PowerPC (this is what you have) and Intel (what Apple switched to after your model).
There are also different types of system install disks: Specific Version (this is what would have came with the iMac originally and contains only the drivers for that model). Retail Version contains drivers and "Universal" processor code for all of the supported models and both types of processors.
Intel Macs format their drives differently than PowerPC macs. So, if the used drive was formatted for Intel you wouldn't be able to mount it, if the install disk that was used was Specific Model type rather than Retail type when the system was installed on your used disk, you wouldn't be able to mount it either.
The drive you have must be formatted for PowerPC and system installed from either the Specific Version or Retail install disc in order for you to mount it.
