Why is my PowerBook so sluggish?
I recently bought a PowerBook G4 on a bargain just to use on the internet and Word/Excel, it's a 1,67ghz and it came with 2gb PC2-3200
It was loaded with 10.5.6 and it just wouldn't work properly, it was really slow to a halt.
So I reformatted and installed 10.4.6 (updated to 10.4.11) and then I could actually use it - sort of!
It's still very sluggish, even TenFourFox and Safari takes forever to load, it kinda skpis when scrolling webpages... My previous iBook G4 1.07ghz was way faster than this, is there anything wrong with it?
BTW: the battery is dead with it's replacement already ordered and the time/date keeps getting back to 1969 after a day or two off, but it' ok if I turn off then on again after a few hours. I also bought 2gb PC2-4200 and a SSD PATA, which was already on my plans before buying this laptop.
Will those upgrades 'fix' my PowerBook?
Is this a good question?
