I'm having a problem and I'm not sure whether it's hardware or software. I'm leaning towards hardware, but you never know. I am running a G4 450 AGP, OS 9.2.2 (tho it did it before I made it up to 9.2.2 from 9) with 128MG RAM. The problem that I'm having is that sometimes (5-10 times a day) when I click on an application (or file, or folder it doesn't matter) I get a pause and nothing then a couple of seconds later either the harddrive or the fan revs up and the menu comes up for less than a second and disappears. Then I can click on the same object again and get the menu. (Sorry if I'm using the wrong terms...) After a few seconds the fan/harddrive dies down and I'm back to normal. That's the best I can describe it. Thanks! Oh yeah, it's done this for ages, I'm just finally trying to figure out what's up. Thanks.
