I just got a 64, reminiscing about playing zelda and banjo kazooie for ages... but now the games seem to freeze randomly and the thing also resets itself randomly... any ideas on how to stop the mofo from doing that?
Get a cleaning kit and clean out the terminals on the game cartridge and game slot. Corrosion on the terminals is common on older systems and games. They should be cleaned regularly. Maybe once a month or as problems occur. This should always be your first troubleshooting step when a game stops working properly.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The N64 was originally made for the old analog CRT TV, if you are connecting it to a newer type digital TV this could be why you experience lagging as I have those games and do not remember any lag in any of them not that I have played them in the last 2 years. The worst case scenario is that the seller was getting rid of it due to a bad Video chip inside the N64 without stating that there was a problem with it so they could sell it. This is why I never use eBay you just never know what you are getting. I am not sure if Nintendo still support this console but it maybe worth a try to contact them directly and see if they are able to help you figure out what it is.
Your English is very good I understood everything with no problems my friend.
Definitely if you are playing one of those 3 games it is normal since those are three of the most graphic intensive games ever released for the console besides Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark. Just like if you remember the days of the original nintendo if you had more than 8 characters/sprites on screen at once the game would crawl until you killed one of the sprites! LOL But for those 3 games if you have a lot of graphics on screen with a lot of textures at certain points in a level it will definitely slow down the frame rate for sure. The only way to remedy this is to attach a heat sink fan to your Nintendo 64 processor similar to how you attach one to a computer but that would have to be a custom job or just play the games on Emulator on your PC. Cheers!
Theres more than 3 eggs. The eggs and the Ice Key were a feature that was to be included with Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie but was removed because the N64 cartridge freeze delay was changed. In other words, the eggs do nothing but sit in your pause menu.
The Jumper pack is needed for Majora's mask, as the extra space is needed for the game to play the enhanced graphics. Ocarina of time was made before the jumper pak was introduced, so it does not need it. As for installing it, get a jumper pak installer kit to remove the original memory pak, the insert the new one.
i think i know where you are in the game if i don't sorry and im only doing this by memory because i haven't played the game in ages. look on the ground there should ba a pattern use the boomerang Z target the 4 pillers in that order then release and the gate should open
