My PowerMac G5 has been freezing and all of the fans go full blast. I have learned that this is called a “Boeing”, as in the jet it resembles when this happens. I just called Apple and they suggested that I bring the computer in for a checkup. This is the second computer I’ve had with this same problem, so I suspect that the problem is not with my particular computer. I just read dozens of posts on Apple’s forum about the problem others like me who have had their computer replaced but still see their computer turn into a hairdrier.
After reading through many posts I think one solution might be to change screensavers.
No, seriously. It always crashes with I have the pretty “Flurry” screensaver on, and someone said that it’s suspected to be a problem with the video card or video rendering. Wouldn’t it be nice if changing screensavers fixed my broken computer? Has this ever solved a computer problem in the history of mankind?
