Greetings! I have an emac G4 that i purchased some months ago that had trouble booting tiger. The owner said he knows the drive isnt dead or failing. I bought it formatted it and installed Leopard. About 2 months ago the drive stopped spinning while in use and you guys as well as myself confirmed its the hard drive. Being that the machine is that supposed "rare" 1.42Ghz model I want to replace the drive. Im used to working with the Imac G3's are the CRt and the motherboard are separated but here its all one big piece. the Combo drive also has trouble opening at times unless it lift the emac and drop it from about 1cm height. What I want to know is how can i go about replacing this hard drive without injury due to the CRT? Will a month of sitting be enough to discharge it? and is there anything i can do to fix the COmbo drive? let me know.. As i would love to get this beast back up and going. its config is the following 1.42Ghz Power PC G4 1Gb RAm 80 GB hard drive Seagate Combo Drive Wireless airport card.
