Righty then our familys emac has died and i wonderd if there was anyway of bringing it back from the dead, the problem is, when you turn it on and it all loads up it stays on a blue screen, like it is before the users log in bit apears.

Any ideas whats wrong with it?

This thread rocks.

Anyway, if you want to fix the old computer, maybe get hold of a copy of 10.3 and install that. I'm sure there will be some MSN messenger thing that works on 10.1, there must be something, even if it's not the microsoft one. To be fair, the Microsoft one is shit, everyone who has a Mac should get Adium, it's really good. So much better than any messenger program for the PC that I've heard of. That requires 10.2 (Jaguar) though. Get 10.3 (Panther), that ought to run ok, I think Tiger is not so good on the older Macs. Depends how old it is though.

Nice work on the iMac though, rock on :D

No, but I'm allowed to express opinions.

Also, if I want to be a bell end, I will be a bell end.

He wasnt asking opinions - he wanted to know how to fix his computer.

To fix it, best bet is to put in the OSX CD and when the installer comes up, select repair disk permissions - and also run the hardware test. Let us know what happens if you try that!

Congrats on the imac!
