Hello, I have an old EMac (2003) which has been unused for a year. I have tried to get it up and running again but it is now very slow to start up and then freezes immediatly. Do you have any tips on how to fix it.

You may need to reinstall you OS or run setup utility to correct disk permissions with your installation CD that came with the computer.

Can I Sell Mom's eMac


I believe this is your mac?

eMac G4/1.0 (ATI)1.0 GHz PowerPC 7445 (G4)apple_emac.jpgIntro Date:May 6, 2003*Disc Date:April 13, 2004*Order No:M8950LL/A*Model No:A1002 (EMC 1903)Subfamily:eMac ATIModel ID:PowerMac4,4Std. RAM:128 MB, 256 MBStd. VRAM:32 MBStd. HD:40, 60, 80 GBStd. Optical:8X "Combo Drive"*Complete eMac G4/1.0 (ATI) Specs
This is a very old model and I doubt it will sell for much. I would suggest putting a listing on eBay and craigslist. Price it at about $50. (Do "buy it now" on eBay)
However, you could get a lot of mileage out of it yourself if you want to use it as a personal web server, or a Linux machine. Research both on Google if you are interested (or ask me another question here at fix-ya).

The dvd icon does not show up on my emac. it plays music but not dvds. The emac is hardly used since I bought it in 2004. Can you help?


It is possible that you only have a CD drive in the emac, particularly with it being an old model. You can check it out by going to the apple menu and down to about this mac and then click on the more info button and when the system profiler comes up click on disc burning and you will see what type of discs the disc drive plays. Hope this helps.

Emac chims but won't turn


Insert your Mac OS disk and attempt a restart with the C key held down. It may be that your eMac isn't recognizing it's hardrive...
You can launch disk utilties off the menu of the OS disk and try to remount your hardrive on your emac...
See if this gets it back.

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:

Flashing apple


The flashing question mark / picasso face means your com puter cannot find a bootable volume or start up disk. Basically, it cannot find your operating system to load. That could mean a few things. Mainly it means your hard drive has failed, and is not performing properly, or cannot be detected. It could also mean the bootsector of the hard drive ( where it wrote os x when it was installed ) has bad blocks or sectors, preventing it from reading the disk correctly. if the hard drive is anywhere from 3 -4 years old or older, all of these options are likely. YOu can try to power the computer on holding down the OPTION key. THis will boot your machine into start up manager. Also try this procedure with an OS X cd or dvd inserted. If you have another macintosh running 10.3 or later, that has a firewire port, you can boot the emac into target disk mode by holding down the "T" key. The other mac should be on , and hopefully the emac will appear on the desktop fo the other computer. THis allow you to hopefuly recover the contents of the emac.
