Intel Mac :: Its Running Super Slow

Jun 16, 2012

Got a 21.5 inch iMac desktop summer of 2010. I think it is the base model. All other info I can't get to on "about my mac" because my Mac is running like frozen molasses.

Anyway, last few days I thought the internet/Safari was running kind of slow. Pages would load, I'd get stuff done, but I just thought it was being glitchy. Then last night, my Mac would all out freeze. Rebooting took at least 5 minutes, and it doesn't matter what I try to use (chrome, firefox, safari), pages just won't load at all or freeze if I am able to make it to Google/Facebook/etc. Now the computer just sits at the blue screen part of the startup, and I had to just finally hard shutdown since I am not getting anywhere to even run a virus scan.

PowerPC :: 3GB Ram Is Running Super Slow And Memory Usage Is Almost Maxed?

Apr 27, 2008

I recently bought a Power Mac G5 with 3 20" cinema displays, each with their own video card. I've since stopped using one and it sped up some. But even with the most simple tasks, it is hella slow and freezes sometimes. If I just have Firefox and iTunes open, it runs slow and the fans kick in overdrive. The main video card is an ATI Radeon x800 with 256 RAM and the other is a 9200 with 128 RAM. how to free up my RAM and speed it up?

Intel Mac :: Goes Super Slow And Doesn't See HD

Jun 14, 2012

But today when I started my iMac he first didn't show my external hard drive so I thought maybe my hard drive is broken so I tried instead of FireWire an USB cable but that didn't work either. So I tried connecting it to another computer and it worked so the problem must be with my Mac somewhere. 

Now my Mac goes extremely slow and when I do 'Shut down' it takes minutes to get him powered off completely.  

Now after a few minutes my Mac sees my Hard Drive again but the Hard Drive usual Icon isn't showing and when I open it to browse through it, it goes extremely slow. It looks like he is initializing everything on my hard drive, so I can't copy or open anything that is on it because it goes so slow.

Intel Mac :: Computer Is Running Very Slow?

Apr 2, 2012

My computer is running very slow.  Beach ball all the time. I have about 35mb hard drive free space and 4 MB RAM.  I monitor with Activity Monitor.  Everytime I open a program, like Safari, Adobe, Activity Monitor shows they use up to 99% CPU.  It goes downafter a little while to a small perecntage, until I try to do something with them.  Then many times, it will jump back up to high %CPU and give me the beachball and run very slow.  This is a new thing.  Does anyone know what may be the problem with my computer?

Intel Mac :: 2008 Running Very Slow?

May 23, 2012

My 2008 iMac started running very slowly yesterday, taking ages to start up and showing the spinning wheel on the desktop for ages making it impossible to do anything. It particularly doesn't like running iTunes or Spotify and got worse when I plugged my iPod in. Another thing I can think of is I downloaded an album from iTunes yesterday and this seemed to coincide with it having a breakdown. Chrome is also running slow and I get frequent unresponsive script messages.

I'm running OS X 10.5.8 and have upgraded to iTunes 10.6.1. I recently installed the Flashback removal software.

Intel Mac :: Running Very Slow And Sometimes Won't Start

Jul 1, 2012

I have an iMac intel from 2009.. the computer is used only for simple internet exploring, word documents, emails... etc. The hard drive has 140GB of free space, and I have erased the free disk space with 1 pass.The computer runs SO slow to the point where it's almost unusable. To me, it feels like a memory issue, even though the programs that are used require very minimal memory... I tried ejecting the RAM stick blowing on it and popping it back in, but no luck...  It has 1GB of ram total.

Mar 29, 2012

I tried to stream a movie on Netflix, the website opened just fine but the video won't play.  I tried another website and no video.

Intel Mac :: Slow While Running Logic Studio?

May 28, 2012

My imac - Running - 10.5.8 Processor - 2.5 GHz Intel core duo 2 Memory - 1 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM I run logic studio on it in my studio. For a good few months its been always having the ''system overload'' message come up on logic so ive been using my laptop instead but i really need to use my imac now as ive just finished builing my studio. About a month ago the memory on the Mac HD was completly full except 1GB. Ive been through deleting almost everything! and trasffering it all onto my new 3TB external HD. Yet still the memory on the Mac HD is still used mostly up;Capacity - 237.57 GB Avaliable -  24.86 GB Used - 207.71 GB My questions are, how do i free up more space? I can't seem to find much saved on my computer anymore only my itunes music which is no more than 10GB. Surley Logic Pro and a few other programs dont take up loads of space.My other question is how can i speed up my computer? so it doesnt come up with the ''system overload'' messages?

iMac (20-inch Early 2008), Mac OS X (10.5.8), logic studio

OS X :: Internet Is Super Slow, Restart Fix It?

Nov 2, 2009

For at least 24 hours now the internet has been incredibly slow on my Alubook. By super-slow I mean 10-15 minutes to load MacRumors. I was sure it was my connection, until I today tried it on my iPhone on the same WiFi network. Took a couple of seconds to load.

So I then thought Safari might be the problem, but I found it was equally slow in Opera and Firefox.

Intel Mac :: Computer Goes Slow When Running SketchUp/ Layout

Jun 16, 2012

I'm using an iMac and find it difficult when running SketchUp/ Layout.  It takes up to 5 to 6 mins to load a Layout file or it re-calculate and halt every few minutes when I am using SketchUp.  While waiting for it's re-calculation or loading up, I can still use other softwares normally. 

I wonder if it is one of the following problems: - 

1. The softwares use massive RAM that my computer don't have? if yes, how can I allocate more RAM for these 2 softwares? 

2. My computer is not powerful enough to run rendering softwares, like SketchUp/ Layout?  

The following is the spec of my computer, Intel Core i3, 3.06 GHz.

PowerPC :: IMac G5 Running SUPER Hot - How To Cool Down

Feb 17, 2010

I'm not sure what the issue is, but my 20" iMac G5 PowerPC is running so hot and smelling very "electrical".

I took the case off the back of it, and it seems where the G5 metal portion (not sure what it's called) is the source of all the heat. I can't really put my finger on it for more than a couple seconds because it's so hot.

Some recent things I've done was lube the fan, and replaced the RAM. I got the RAM per the Crucial ram identifier program that runs on the computer and lets you know which type to purchase.
