    round the corner
    Could I have a bit more detail please

    You said that upgrading wouldn't work, as in it wouldn't load at all or the installation messed up at the end?

    By the way I don't recall a 350Mhz G4, sorry, maybe there was one but I can't remember

    I'm sure that it is something simple, you might have hardware that is annoying the OS

    I can't be sure at this point :confused:

    HI thankyou for answering

    When i Installed the uppgrade the computer started freezing. It would freeze in different programs at different times. So I decided to do a clean install. Same thing happened. Freezing

    Now I installed it on a different harddrive but I still have the freezing problem :(

    Did that help at all

    I'm very sorry to hear you're having this problem. I'm sure it must be quite frustrating.

    Did this never happen with your previous OS (presumably Jaguar)? I ask because it kind of sounds like a hardware problem. A cleanly installed OS should be relatively-error free, which by process of elimination suggests that the trouble is with the hardware, in some way. Did this trouble arise immediately after the clean install or only after you added some other applications? Finally, have you tried creating another user and logging in as that user? Does the same trouble recur?

    I would recommend that with a problem as serious as this that you ask at Apple's support site discussion forum.

    I agree sounds like a hardware problem, probably logic board or ram.. you might reset the PMU and get a new internal battery. just some thoughts... sorry it is late.

    I am experiencing the same

    Hi Rebecca,
    I just subscribed to rumors today, but wanted to mention that I also
    have been having my G4 AGP 450 freeze up on me quite often. THe screen locks up and I have to force restart using the restart button on the front of the case. The G4 I am using has 2 Ultra Wide SCSI drives that I have updated the firmware to. My feeling is that it is a SCSI hardware problem, but wanted to determine if others had this problem and a solution?

    Does your motherboard have built-in USB?
    It's required.
