    We are in the process of putting our Mac community in A.D. and are experiencing problems with the few accounts we have added to be getting locked out. These accounts are getting locked out every day several times a day. We have tried shutting down the machines a night and nothing seems to help. Does anyone have a suggestion for this?

Wallstreet PowerBook G3 Fan Problem!!!!

Postby Romell Carter » Tue, 12 Apr 2005 11:14:25 GMT

To whom it may concern:

Can you please tell me what part I need replace in order for the fan on my
PowerBook fan to stop running continuously? It used to come on and off now
it stays on and is running at high speed even when the unit is cold! Is
there a temp switch of some kind?? Please respond ASAP.

Thank you,

2.restart problem with powerbook g3 (wallstreet)

I got a Powerbook G3 series (wallstreet) running 9.2.2 with 256 MB 
memory which behaves misteriously.
It won't do a "restart"! I can shut it down and turn it on. No problem, 
but if I choose "restart" it shuts down and  hear the styart up chime. 
But that's it. The same behaviour if I go under control panel startup 
disk and choose restart from there. Resetting the powermanager will 
eventually restart the computer. What's going on? I replaced the PMU 
powerboard card with a supposingly good one, but it dodn't make any 


3.Powerbook G3 Wallstreet Keyboard wierdness

I've gone through all the steps to put a 40Gb drive in this Wallstreet
I  got for my Granddaughter to use in school. All works as it should
except the keyboard doesn't want to go back in. I put the 5 tabs into
their slots as directed, but when I get to the part about pressing down
firmly,  the bottom edge of the keyboard doesn't  seem to lock into
anything. I suspect those little tabs inside that were oh-so-easy to
slide to pop the bottom edge out in the beginning but won't travel
either way now that I want to put the keyboard back in.

Surely there's something simple I'm missing here.

Any help anyone?
