Hi there! I got a Mac G4 with Mac OS X 10.5 on it from a friend. That friend says he never had any problems with it...
I have problems with this Mac all the time from the very beginning. It freezes when ITunes plays music and also with some web-sites like myspace (also when playing music), and then I have to press the restart button
I have tried already all basic troubleshooting: creating new user, deleting ITunes plist, reinstalling ITunes, disc utility (...) Nothing works! It freezes again and again... I need help!!
Thank you!
QUOTE Thanks

Does it freeze with all music or just some? I had a freeze problem a while back and it turned out to be corrupted mp3 files, once i got rid of them the problem went away.

As for Myspace freezes, if your using Safari you might be having the same problem i have, it just sits there and refuses to finish loading the pages. I have found that using Firefox cures that for me anyway, or you might want to try the latest version of Safari and see if that helps.
