Mac os 9.2 problem

Mac os 9.2 problem

Mac os 9.2 problem

I have a G4 with os 9.2 and It freezes up after 25-40 minutes of use. When you try to reboot from the button on the machine it will reboot but everything will still be frozen. The only way out is to turn off the power for a few seconds and then start up again. The funny thing is when it freezes up the power light goes out on the computer. I talked to Apple anf they want me to take it in for service. Any ideas? I tries to change energy controls even turned of that extention. I rebuilt desktop / zapped the PRAM. I'm out of ideas HELP !

RE: Mac os 9.2 problem

Are you doing the same thing when this happens at all? Is the computer on a network at all?

If you can't fix it in 20 call someone who can.

Does the computer do this if you turn Extensions off?

RE: Mac os 9.2 problem

when it freezes can you do a force quit? If so, what app does it want to quit?
