This is my first post, and I've searched for a little while but found nothing that really suits my needs. I know ya'll can point me in the right direction. I've had a little bit of a problem with my iBook G3 lately. I bought it two summers ago off eBay and it's been a great machine, until about two weeks ago it just froze. At first I laughed at the irony of my Mac freezing, but then I tried to restart it and it turns out that the entire startup disk was erased... I have no clue how. I'm not all that computer savvy, but I reformatted the drive and reinstalled OSX.3.9... ladeda. Now, my computer is SO sluggish. It takes about 30 seconds to open a finder window, even longer if I'm trying to do something in Safari (or heaven forbid, Photoshop). I'm not on my computer now so I can't check the exact ammount of RAM, but I know it's more than 256... Otherwise, I don't know what to do. I have no clue why it's running so sluggish. Let me also clarify that I live miles upon miles away from the nearest Apple store... I'm in the middle of nowhere... :/ If any of you know what to do or have any special tricks, please pass them on. thanks!
