The pointer jumping on the screen sounds like you may have picked up a virus. While rare, there are mac viruses. I would try to save all my data documents and any other valuable personal files or lists, then do a clean reinstall of the operating system. Then load our documents back in.
You could try to scan for a virus with a mac virus program, but not many are available for a G4 Power PC (PPC) machine.

I have recently purchased a mac ibook G4 and unfortunatly it fell of the couch.Since then i have been having problems with Safari(internet browser).Safari and the cpu will freeze as well.Everything else...


Not sure what is going on with safari but what I would suggest is reseating your RAM on your ibook, it may have come loose. to do this have a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-3406L3yL0 it is fairly easy to do. You will at the same time as reseating the RAM you will have to remove the airport card and replace it in the same slot, this may sort the safari problem. Have you tried using another browser such as firefox. Hope this helps in some way.

Can not install the stylus epson c80 on my ibook clamshell os9.0


You can download GutenPrint. It contains drivers for all of the printers not installed with OS X. This may provide a driver for your Stylus printer. Just so you know, the Epson Stylus printers are quite finicky and STILL frequently have problems with driver installation on even the newest machines.

Open System Preferences:

Adjust the preferences for each of the two options:
Put the computer to sleep when it is inactive for:
1min 15min 1hr 3hrs Never
Put the display to sleep when it is inactive for:
1min 15min 1hr 3hrs Never

Set these for Power Adaptor and Battery separately.

My iBook G4 continues to run slowly and/or freeze


Try resetting the PRAM by turning on the iBook then holding option + command + P + R and wait till u hear another chime. If it still freezes, it may indicate an application may be causing it to lock up hold shift after you hear the chime to boot OS X into safe boot.

Ibook g4 freez


Freezing is a HD problem. Do you hear clicking sometimes? Sometimes on boot up is there a foler with a questionmark in it? I would get your hard drive looked at, this is the reason disc utility fails. Your hard drive has a hiccup.
