How much free space do you have on your hard drive? If you have less than 3-4GB, this will cause heavy slowdowns.
Or, your disk structures could be inefficient or have cumulative corruption. I would run a pass of Disk Warrior on your drive to clean that up.
If you collect icons on your desktop like some people collect Hummel figurines, that will slow down your machine atrociously. Get them off your desktop, or at least bury them in a folder on your desktop.
Adding memory will usually give you a speed improvement, but I would not recommend this as your first response because lack of memory would not cause a machine that WAS faster to be slower NOW.

I have emac 10.2.8 with memory 640mb processor 700MHz power pc G4 . I would like to know what safari version is right one for my computer and where can i get that. plz help me.


Hi SardaIn order to upgrade your Safari you need to upgrade your OS to 10.4.11 at least.Try ebay for a copy. Once you have done that Software Update will automatically offer to update Safari to the latest version applicable.
It's not the machine - it's the OS that matters.

Ever since cafeworld apparently runs faster mine is running 10 times slower. To do anything there is about a 2min delay when I click on anything.


Hi!!
To optimize your Facebook experience, please download the most up-to-date version of your Internet browser. For more information on upgrading your browser, follow the instructions listed here.
In addition, please try the following steps to troubleshoot the issue you're experiencing:
  1. Click out of the application (e.g., click Profile or Inbox at the top of any Facebook page), and then re-open the application.
  2. Refresh the page (Ctrl + R on PCs; Cmd + R on Macs).
If the above steps did not resolve the issue, please contact the developer of the application through their Profile Page if:
  1. The application hangs during the loading screen.
  2. The application loads, but is really slow.
  3. The application loads, but will constantly be out of sync.
If the issue you're experiencing is happening with multiple applications and with Facebook Platform in general, please report it to us here.

Lastly, if you are seeing an "Offline mode" or timed out error in your browser as if they're not connected to the Internet when you try to access you third-party application, you may be experiencing connectivity issues. We'd recommend that you talk directly to your network provider in regards to this issue.

Thank you for using fixya! I hope I had helped you with your problem. May you have a good day!

I have an eMac and would wireless USB adapter to work


It depends on which eMac you have. The 1/1.25 Ghz and the 1.42 ghz models have USB 2.0 so either adapter will work. The slower speed eMacs only had USB 1.1 and will not work for those types of adapters. The 700/800Mhz models will use the original AirPort card while the rest of the eMacs use the Airport Extreme cards.

I have an old school pc it is an emac and need an password for it can you break it


In OS X, if you're the administrative (or only) user, you can reset the admin/user password using the OS X installation disk #1. Put the disk in the CD drive & restart the eMac while holding the "C" key down (Restart is also on the Apple menu, top-left corner of your screen). When the Installer opens, click "Utilities" then Restart. When the Installer asks you what language, pick one (maybe English?) 8¬), click continue (arrow) then Utilities again & choose "Reset Password"; the system will guide you through the steps. Once you've reset the user password, restart the eMac, then you can log in using the new password. You'll probably want to reset your "Keychain" password to match your new login password – otherwise it'll ask for your password every time it needs one for a program. "Keychain Access" is in the 'Utilities' folder, which is inside the 'Applications' folder.

—> Important: if the old Users Home Folder was encrypted ("FileVault" protected), you'll need the old user's password, or the eMac's Master password to access the files in the Home Folder – otherwise, the Home folder's files will be lost. As a new user, you'll have your own Home Folder & access to all application programs.

DELL Lattitude D620 freezes


Check the dock, there might be a problem in the dock, you can also try insulating the edges of the dock with some tapes before docking and plugging the dell, sometimes a short spike of static can hang the computer. If all else fails, dell has a pretty good customer support, you can go contact them...
