    You can upgrade it, however the cost of an CPU Upgrade may cost more than buying a G4 used.

Sims 3 wont install onto my powerbook G4


Sims 3 will not run on a mac that isn't using an Intel based processor. You will have to upgrade from a Power-PC processor in order to use the latest version of sims.

My Nancy Drew computer game won't work


Hi longview924,

Unfortunately there is no way to make that game run on your mac. Your mac uses the older powerPC architecture (all G3, G4 and G5 macintosh machines use this architecture) but the game requires that you have a mac using the newer intel architecture.

I found the details of the system requirements here:
http://www.buzz99.com/1167/nancy-drew-trail-of-the-twister-system-requirements/

Intel and PowerPC processors are very different in how they work (Intel chips are CISC chips and powerPC chips are RISC chips), which is why there is no way around it. This is also the reason why apple dropped support for the powerPC architecture in mac OS 10.6 upwards.

Without meaning to sound harsh, it may be time to consider an upgrade - macs are very expensive but the intel macbooks are leaps and bounds faster than the powerPC range :)

    How do you know the product key used for this program?


    most likely you have Office Mac 2008 home and student edition. You have 3 product keys provided with the install DVD. You will only know if the product key is already used when you use Office Mac in 2 Mac computers(used the same Product key) Error message will pop up saying that Microsoft Office is already in used. When you accidentally used same product key on both computers, the workaround for that is to remove the product key and use the product key that you think you haven't used yet.
    To remove the product key:

    ] > Finder\~\Applications\Microsoft Office 2008\Office

    * Remove OfficePID.plist

    ] > Finder\<username>\Library\Preferences\Microsoft\Office 2008

    * Remove Microsoft Office 2008 Settings.plist


    After removing the 2 files try launching an Office Application then it will prompt you to Improvement program. Just click continue then it will prompt you to enter the Product Key.

    I bought a mac second hand and it has microsoft office 2008 installed. I was asked to upgrade and I said OK but it then asked for my 25 product key number. I don't have one and it doesn't function any...


    Hi,
    Most likely the Office installed on your Mac is Trial version. You need to purchase a product key from Microsoft. Try calling Microsoft and have them check you Office Mac 2008, i think they can give you free product key if the Office Mac version is not Pirated.
