Recently my iBook has started doing this thing where it'll load. You know where the little beachball starts to spin? Well, the beachball keeps spinning and it never stops, it acts like it's froze, and i have to restart it all the time, so it'll stop.

Is there anything I can do? Or do any of you know what the problem is?


My ibook is a g3 white 600 mhz

We'll need more info.

What are you doing just before you get the beachball? Are you on the internet? Do you have any other apps running? Does it happen all the time or just when you have certain programs running?
