    Thank you
    I changed the battery but the screen still does the same thing (streches horizontally and then comme back)

Without having the unit in front of me, it sounds like the video component is bad. However, you could have a bad battery in the
computer. Try replacing it... (Cost should be <$12 US)

Have apple eMac forgot user password can you help


You need to start up from the system cd for the eMac then use 'Password Utility' to change the password.
Alternatively, if you are transferring the files to another Mac, you can start up the eMac in 'Target Disk' mode by holding down the 'T' key during start-up until a Firewire symbol appears on the screen. The computer can then be connected to another Mac which will see the eMac as an external HD.

My Apple eMac G4 M9425LL/A Desktop does not fill up the desktop. How can I maximize the desktop


Hi Buchi
Do you mean you get a small desktop inside the screen surround by blank space or black?

If so then I think you are reaching the end of the eMac's life.
These machines have been very good overall. Some had the dreaded capacitor problem , but Apple fixed that on affected machines by replacing the motherboard.
I have of late though seen a few eMacs with display problems. I have one here now with a very pink display - as a computer it works fine, but the display (or display electronics) is giving up.
Unfortunately it is probably not cost-effective to try to repair these machines.
One thing you can do though is connect up an external monitor.
See if you can borrow one and plug it into the video out port (the socket right at the end of the line of connectors on the side of the eMac) You'll need a suitable adaptor though.
`If that display is fine then the problem is with the tube itself, but if the problem is still there, then then the issue is probably the video board - again not worth repairing.

let us know what happens.

How to remove a tilt/swivel base from an eMac?


Hi Robert.
Remove all connections from your E-mac including powercord. Put a folded blanket on the floor and lift the E-mac from the table and put it on the folded blanket so that the screen is on the blanket. Now you have acces to the bottom. Unscrew and take the swivel off. Be careful because eMac is the heaviest computer ever made by Apple. Good luck.

After starting my emac a screen comes up asking me to log in above it says darwin/bsd (user-s-emac-2.local) (console)


Sounds like some of your system files may have been corrupted. Restart your computer with you OS disc, and when it launches, go to the top menu and look for "Disk Utilitiy". Launch and see if you can repair the files that way. If not you may have to reinstall the system software. If so, choose the option that won't erase your info on your drive.
Last resort is to wipe the drive clean and reinstall the OS fresh, but this will erase everything.
Before erasing everything, if you have access to a second mac, you can connect the emac to the other mac via a firewire cable, turn on your emac in hard drive mode by starting it while holding down the "T" key. You'll get a firewire icon on the screen. Then turn on the second mac... you can off load any files to the second mac and then reinstall the OS via the OS discs.
Best of success.

MAC G4 won't boot - Blue screen appears


Hi Sorry to hear you are having troubles,You will need a firewire 400 cableOK, first thing you must do is reboot the eMac in TARGET mode, this means it will be recognized as an external disk. To get the eMac in TARGET mode, you must be sure the eMac is turned OFF and has a functioning keyboard connected.Power on the eMac and very very rapidly press the ( T ) key on the keyboard, be sure the caps lock button is not pressed. If all goes well, you will see the firewire logo appear larger than life on the screen.( If you are unable to get into TARGET mode, it is highly probable that the mother board of the internal hard drive is damaged and preventing the eMac from entering TARGET mode, sorry, that's the end of the line..)Once you enter TARGET mode on the eMac, connect the firewire cable to your G4 PowerBook, you can do this either while it is running or when it is off and then turn it on.
You should see the volume of your eMac internal hard drive appear on the PowerBook desktop...sometimes you need to open Disk Utilities and repair or mount the drive manually.If this all works well, copy the required files directly to your PowerBook...After that, power off both machines, disconnect them and reboot the eMac using a CD or DVD to reformat and reinstall a new system.

Network a G4 (OS 9) to a eMac (OS X)


OK - first, crossover cables let you network PCs together without a switch or router. I would strongly recommend returning the crossover cable and buying a router so that you can use both computers on the internet at the same time.

Second, the eMac monitor can not directly be used as a monitor for your G4 - it's not built that way. However, you can use Screen Sharing on OS X (if both have Leopard) or Apple Remote Desktop software (if you buy it) to remote control the G4 using the eMac.

You will DEFINITELY need a monitor on the G4 in order to set it up at all, so I hope you have that.

Keep in mind that you can buy, for less than $200, an LCD screen that is larger and better quality than the eMac, and it would leave the eMac useful as a second computer. Since the eMac is unlikely to work at all with Leopard, and you'd have to buy Apple Remote Desktop, you're going to spend less money by buying a separate screen for the G4.
