Question about AppleWorks 6 for mac

1 Answer

Appleworks has stopped working

I have a powerbook g4 with mac os x.   I can open appleworks, but then the little colored pinwheel comes up and starts spinning and never stops.  I have to go to force quit, and it says appleworks is not responding.
I'm pretty sure my computer doesn't have any spyware or viruses.

    I hadn't known about that-- I rapaired the permissions, but appleworks is still doing that.  I'm not sure what it means or what to do!

    I'd suggest uninstalling and then reinstalling. Then make sure you use the Apple Update function. I forget what it's called exactly, but you know what I'm talking about right?

Cant find the disc on my powerbook g4


STart up your G4 using the OS disc for leopard, but instead of reinstalling the system, go to the menu at the top of the screen and Launch Disk Utility.
You may need to remount your hard drive. The disk utitliy can do this for you. Then it should appear in the disk utillity window. Then you should be able to install the OS and away you go!

I picked up a Powerbook G4 12' Aluminum guesing 1.5 from a local college that was going to trash it, and when I press the power button the start up chime rings and turns straight to a blinking ?/Mac OS...


Get the gray OS discs specific for the PowerBook. Your iBook gray discs won't work. You can also install the OS by getting a black label retail version disc of whatever cat you like- Panther or Tiger. If the software installs, but you hear noises or get the spinning beach ball of death, then the hard drive is fu.k.d up. You then have to open up the computer and install a new hard drive and re-install the OS. Good luck old chap. Cheers.

Will virtual pc for mac v7 work with powerbook g4 running 10.4.11


Sorry, but the G4 and G5 desktops have chipsets released prior to the Intel agreement allowing pc's with CoreDuo and Macs with DualCore chips to exchange data, even though Virtual PC for G3 through G5 chipsets did work in running MS OS's prior to Vista, including XP, on mac platforms.

Now, if this helps, you might be able to secure an older version of Virtual PC, since your version works on current Macs and PCs with Vista, to run XP on your G4 and G5.

Powerbook g4 15 not turning on


Something is wrong with the operating system. If there is a flashing folder with a question mark, then it might be with the hard drive as well. If you just get that warning, then you may only have to reinstall your operating system (OS X). Get your CD/DVDs out and insert the OS X disk. Hold down C when you start the computer so it will start from the disk and not from the hard drive. After the startup program has loaded, you can try to check the hard drive and repair permissions and such to see if that works, or you can just reinstall the OS. Good luck.

Open case of Apple Powerbook G3


Several screws on bottom and the whole top case snaps off. It will take a little time on this model to gently pry. Also, I think the keyboard comes off first before removing the top cover by two finger pegs. It's been a long time since I worked on this model you you'll just have to get in and look around. Very common on this design that the power plug just needs re-soldered to the motherboard.

Typing lag


I dont normally work much with mac's, but are you able to type fine in office- word for example? Is the computer slow normally, even without running programs? What it could is that you have to much stuff on your computer taking up space. Try to put all your photos on dics or on an external hard-drive and then get rid of them off yr computer, also get rid of any music files that you may have stored- have them on CD's as well. This should fix the problem, but if not, uninstall any unessesary programs. Hope this can help... be interseted if it does... get back to me if you can!
