Speaking of G4 problems, mine has developed an occasional strange noise and
I wonder if it suggests anything to any of you? I have a 500 Mhz, 40 gig G4,
about a year old. Recently it started making a noise that sounds like a disk
drive starting up. Kind of like the CD-ROM drive, only about 2x louder. I
don't know what it is. It was happening about once a week. This week it
seems to be daily, even 2-3 times a day. The noise lasts only 15 - 45
seconds, then stops. I don't see anything that I am doing consistently when
the sound occurs. It happens when I'm in Photoshop, Explorer, PageMill, and
even when I have no applications open and am just staring at the desktop.
It doesn't appear to be hurting anything or causing anything not to work.
But it is a new noise that shouldn't be there, and I wonder how worried I
need to be. Anybody have an idea?
