Question about Apple eMac G4 Desktop
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.

You will need to check for BAd caps on this look under the memory lid and see if the caps are bulging if they are you got a emac that is failing and you would need to send it in for repair you can take your logic board out as i did http://www.photospace.com/rss_feed.php?rss_id=3354 look at my pics look at the caps the round thigs there bulging this means they need to be replaced so I am going to try it myself but you can take it to www.badcaps.net this guy will do it for under the price it would cost for a new logic board.
