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.

Have you thought of upgrading the memory or the prm?

  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
  5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
  6. Release the keys.
Your computer's PRAM and the NVRAM are reset to the default values. The clock settings may be reset to a default date on some models.
Good Luck

Cant download flash to emac


The eMac uses a G4 processor, and is limited to Mac OS 10.5.x. The most recent version of Flash Player that will run on it is Flash Player 10.1 (if you are running OS 10.4 or later), or Flash Player 9.0.280 if you are still running OS 10.3.
Note that not all web content will work these older versions - in particular, Facebook video inserts will incorrectly claim you don't even have Flash installed instead of playing!

I just got a used e-mac A1002 (1 Ghz/128/60/combo 56K. It has Mac OS X 10.3.3 installed. I'm having problems signing into G-mail. Facebook also appears as just text. As well, can't seem to play...


I would try and find the OS X Tiger installation disks off of eBay, and install Tiger so that you can at least install Firefox, even if it's an older version. Your computer won't be able to run much, because of the limited RAM, and the fact that the processor is extremely slow.

Emac won't start up


An Emac! one of my favorite CRT Macs :D

They sometimes had a problem of the vibrations of the speakers killing the CRT Tube. But it sounds like you are having worse problems.

the first suspect would be bad ram. Try removing one stick, then the other and running it with only one stick. If you only have one stick, then get ahold of a new stick and try that. There is a little rectangular cover on the bottom of the computer that your ram hides under.

If that doesnt fix it, return any purchase of sticks or ram and lament the death of your mac. Not that it is not fixable, its just cheaper to get a new one, and hey, unless your hard drive is fried, you can even get all your data off! How cool is that?

DISCLAIMER: You are dealing with a CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) Monitor. It can and will shock you if you touch the wrong bit. Possibly even lethally. EVEN if it is unplugged. If you dont feel comfortable opening the case, pay a professional.

Here is a link showing how to take apart your mac. http://www.wilko.com/emac/
This also has a good picture of the memory cover.

Once you have the hard drive out you can get and IDE to USB cable or hard drive enclosure, and hook your old drive up to your new mac, and use the migration utility (in the utilities folder) and pull your whole account (applications and all) to the new mac.

You can get a 1.4GHz Emac for around $200 these days.

Ethernet speed changes from normal to zero


If you have high speed internet go to your ISP webpage and do a speed test. If You are paying for say like 10 MEGS and are only pulling 1.2 Megs. It probably is your modem. Your speed will slow down to approx 7.5 behind a router. Also Your ethernet cable might need replacing. might also might try resetting your router. disconnect all power even the cable comming in and reset everything. Hope that helps.

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.

EMac sound will randomly go to FULL BLAST


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.

Emac model number A1002


It could be a hard drive problem or it could just be a software issue. Given the model, it could be running System 9 or X or both. If it is 9 it just may need to be blessed. The disc you are trying to load sounds model specific as opposed to Apple's retail discs which will load on any of their models capable of running that particular operating system. Whether it is worth fixing is really a judgement call, if you have use of a 2nd machine a hard drive / install disc can be had for cheap enough, as far as resell value, I would say no. Due to the limited information you have on the history of the machine I would suggest following these links to try and determine if it is indeed hardware or software:
