Help me kill my eMac (snowball)
posted by ebesan to computers & internet (7 answers total)
Need help putting this guy to sleep forever. Old, noisy and erratic, and largely unused for years, I cannot open it. I start it, but all I get is the Apple icon. and have to pull the plug to turn it off. No curser, no commands work. I want to get it open, and retrieve some things, if possible. I work off a MacBook Pro now. Can I get this thing open, pull out some files, wipe it clean (or whatever you call it) and apply a final euthanization? (unless someone has an interesting alternative? a nite-lite? a fishbowl? a looped video? I'd like to keep it for something. Kind of like it.
