I keep seeing my poor iMac G3 Blueberry freezing for no reason, I have 512MB of ram, but I don't think I can max it, and if I did, the processor and hard drive and gonna die soon, but can anyone help me? It just freezes, and sometimes the screen will not wake when I move the mouse or touch the keyboard.

Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ia7NpvcNO4Y) is the video I just uploaded, sorry it's bad quality but please help!

Don't mean to be a pessimist, but I went through three logic boards on one Blueberry. It used to get pretty hot, especially with a larger HDD in it and no fan. It got so I could open one up in minutes to get at the components. Went through two or three drives as well.

I have one that is doing the same thing, i was given it. It decides when it wants to put anything on the screen.

I dismantled to day, and cleaned the ram chips and ram cache with isopropyl alcohol. It is now firing up OK every time. I just have to fix the HDD issue
