Question about Apple eMac G4 Desktop

1 Answer

EMac sound will randomly go to FULL BLAST

Sound will go to FULL BLAST for no apparent reason - sometimes happens when running a net application (YouTube, for example) that uses sound.   Sometimes fixed (temporarily) by a restart - have tried zapping PRAM (also a temporary fix).  Sound will show as MUTED in System Preferences but still be at FULL BLAST coming out of speakers.  Any recommendations?

    Not sure what a "brand driver" is.  Pls clarify what it is, and how I can check whether I have one.  This machine had been working just fine for years, and this problem started occurring in the last couple of months.

    and THANK YOU arnomonfort for taking the time to respond - if you can clarify, I would be very grateful.

    Norwoom01:  Don't think so - but this is a family computer used by others, so it's possible.  Any suspects?

    Did this and it worked, but didn't want to rely on external speakers forever (and I had to keep external speaker volume set very, very low).   Ended up having a local technician replace the logic board, which appears to have done the trick.

    Did you install/update anything a day or two before the problem first occurred?

    don't you have a brand driver working over system preferences?

If you don't get it fixed, try hooking up external speakers. The external speakers have a hardware switch that prevents it completely from going to the built-in speakers.

I have an lg ht805ph surround sound system attached to my SHY plus HD Box.Sometimes the sound is out of sync with the picture.How do I stop this happening?


the probable reason it is happening is the delay in your sky box decoding the signal and the surround sound decoding the audio. Have you tried taking the sound from the tv output and using that as the input for the surround sound and not taking it driectly from the sky box, which i am assuming your doing. If you turn off the LG and listen to the sound through the tv is it in sync, if its a random happening then it is the signal quality of the sky receiver thats at fault

No sound coming out of the four main speakers. Why??


hi! there might be some technical problem in concern with the connection or wiring of your speaker. or maybe battery is not that strong enough to give full blast to the four speakers.

Slow running mac


There are a number of reasons that may causing a Mac computer running slow, but generally two factors: hardware part & system part. For hardware part: I guess it's OK if your Mac is not that old. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, registry errors... about 80% slow Mac caused by this reason, if so, try cleaning the system.

Random shutdown for no reason


Is the laptop hot?

Would you say the reboots are totally random, or more only when you have several programs (or large memory eating programs open)?

If you disable automatic restarting you will see the BSOD that is causing the problem.

Right Click My Computer
Click Properties
Click Advanced
Click Settings (For startup and recovery)
Uncheck the "Automaticaly restart " box.

Run your game, and report back the 0x000000 mesassage :)
