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.

Acer x 223w monitor and what video card

I have not answered the question about this problem, however someone else told me that I would have to change my graphics card to take full advantage of the features of the X223W monitor. But they did not know what I had to change it to.

Monitor won't turn on

My eMac has no port for an external monitor. I've heard that there is a way to install one but it seems that to do this the computer must be partially disassembled. Being that there is like 8 million volts of electricity stored somewhere inside the CRT I would not attempt this yourself. You might get electrocuted. This is the problem with all in one computers. When the monitor goes it is an expensive repair.

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.
