    Firstly let me tell you that i am using a Power Mc G4 Dual 867 - Mac OSX 10.4.11

    I was watching a dvd on my computer when it crashed and stuck, the whole computer froze and I couldnt do anything.
    Even Force Quitting wouldnt work so i had to switch off using the power button.

    When i restarted the machine everything looked fine, but after a while i noticed that the icons would dissapear for 1sec and then come back again.

    Now continuosly this keeps happening so clearly some thing has gone wrong somewhere. :mad:

    IF ANYONE CAN SUCCESFULLY ADVISE ME ON HOW TO CORRECT THIS - THEY WILL RECEIVE A DECENT REWARD !

    that's a bit older of a computer but it sounds to me like it might be video card problems. I'm just taking a shot in the dark here but maybe try doing some trouble shooting with you're video card.

    Googling desktop icons dissapear G4 seems to pull info up.


    " Desktop icons disappearedI had the same problem. I fixed it by installing TINKERTOOL (FREE) and unchecking the DISABLE DESKTOP FEATURES "

    Its not the Dock it is the icons on the desk top that have the problem.
