    I have a emac thats about 4 years old, always has run well and done everything good. Recently retired it to backup computer and did a total erase and instal of the os.. ran great till a few weeks ago when it froze after about 10 minutes of use. Tried it again the next day and got the same thing. I waited a week and then tried it and still...same thing. Unpluged it, hit the power button and waited a day... same thing. Unpluged everying except keyboard and mouse... same thing. Totaly puzzled on how to fix it, anyone have any ideas.

    Try Repairing Permissions in Disk Utility and Resetting the PRAM.

    Also, if your eMac came with a hardware test, you could run that to check for hardware problems. Link
