I just purchased an iBook g4 from ebay and it keeps stalling when doing basic tasks. To going on the internet, system preferences, pages, to anything really it just freezes. I can't even force quit any of the applications either. I'm not sure if it's a good thing but I have to hold down the power button until it turns off and then I'll just turn it back on. Is there a reason it's doing this? Maybe it's a hard drive probelm because I've been having some difficulties trying to start it up normal.


Anyway, if you can help that would be greatly appreciated!


Thank you

iBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
