Hi, I need some help with my ibook, let me give a bit of history, a few months ago the computer would not turn on, I had to reset it and it had been working ok, but not like it use to before the reset. The applications run slow as well as the internet which runs extremely slow, especially if there is a video or like a flash script on the page. Is there anyway I can clean up my hard drive? or is there any know problems that exist after a reset? any info would be very helpful.

ibook G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    Hi stormy and Welcome to Apple discussions,
    Please post the CPU speed, amount of RAM, OS version, hard drive size and space remaining. That will help us out.
    The applications run slow

    That could be related to the above info.
    as well as the internet which runs extremely slow,

    This could also be related to the above. It could also have to do with your connections.
    especially if there is a video or like a flash script on the page

    Yes these G4 iBooks aren't going to good with streaming video or flash animation. Even G5 iMacs don't do well doing that. They will do good if you're playing downloaded QuickTlime movies. My son's been watching downloaded episodes of Big Bang Theory and That '70s Show etc no problem.
