I would check this.....put the machine face down on a towel and open up the RAM door, and look for the shiney ends of the capacitors....if any are not flat (ie bulged outward) the machine needs repairs, I've got one eMac 1.25er that suffers from this issue and a second that doesn't, it's a known one and too bad Apple has ended the extended support for this, Only happens on the 1.25Ghz models and the indicators are, freezing randomly, no video, shoddy video etal, just flip it over and opeen that door and take a look at the ends of the capacitors.

The one out of two I have that has the bulged capacitor problem is going to a service center shortly to have the bad caps replaced.

This is a multiplatform home !
