Thread: eMac problem
10-28-2007, 10:01 PM #1eMac problem
I'm not sure if anyone can help with the old eMac but I'll give it a shot. My mother and father-in-law have an eMac that is frozen in the strangest way. It's been sitting in their room for almost a year and I feel terrible letting a mac go to waste.
My father-in-law told me that he was getting warnings that he was about to run out of space when the mouse arrow simply froze. Today my friend and I tried to boot it up and we were able to get into the desktop without the mouse. The arrow is frozen in the same place all the time.
We were able to get to the system setting without the mouse and were able to tab to the mouse settings but Apple-O would not open it for us.
Is there anyway to get the mouse arrow to unfreeze so as to get this piece of Apple history running again?

do you have the restore discs? I would try to restore the system...maybe an easier way but that could be an option. I have an eMac and had to do this once. Have you unplug the mouse and put it back in and restart?.Leo my mac kitty... 24" iMac 2.8GHz, Macbook Air 1.8GHZ/2GB/80GB, iPhone 3G 16GB White , iPod Classic 80GB, iPod Nano...

We've tried everything from buying a new mouse and we even got a new keyboard. We have also not been able to open the disc bay.
If we restore the system will that erase everything on the drive?
