Question about Apple iMac G4 Desktop

1 Answer

When my wife is using her Mac, the screens keep randomly disappearing from the screen. She will be midway through typing something in Facebook and the Facebook page will just slide off the screen - any ideas?

    Is the facebook page being minimized i.e. does the screen go into the dock. You can try this out by pressing the apple or cmd key and pressing 'm' at the same time. The page will slide off the screen and if you go to the dock it should appear at the end of the dock.

Sounds like you're using the "Spaces" function and inadvertently causing it to activate. Sometimes an extra keystroke will cause this...
Try accessing the shortcut control panel in the system preferences..It's in the keyboard/mouse control.
You can set the keyboard shortcut to default or scroll thru the list and check for typical wordprocessing keystrokes that may be controling Spaces... try disabling it.

Coloured lines on screen and takes a long time to populate


When this happens it is a logic board video problem. I would purchase a use logic board or a comparable laptop via eBay There are numerous laptops of your type for sale that have broken screens for a fair price.The screens are very hard to find on eBay for sale, But a good working screen is worth it's weight in gold. The random screen issue is normally caused by the logic board and not the screen.

Try using a different browser than your wife uses for Facebook. If she uses Firefox, use Chrome. This will keep you from having to type in your email each time you log in.

Im a Facebook member. When I " Try " to sign in ~ I keep getting my wifes Facebook account


It sounds like you have the page cached. If you are on a Windows machine, login with your account. When it takes you to your wife's page hold down the Ctrl key and press F5 at the same time. If that doesn't work, clear the cache on your browser and reload the page. We run in to that problem occasionally.
