After the ususal start up sounds my blue & white G3 is now making a loud noise. It sounds like a fan-noise, but now is accelerating and slowing down. The noise is erratic and the machine sounds sick. Is it dying? I know the machine is old but it has been very reliable. I only use it for accounting, not the web. I have 9.2 OS, gave up on converting to OSX, so I gave up on internet. I just want to be able to track my business stuff on this computer. When this noise happens I just turn it off. I'm afraid I will lose everthing. I have it backed up, but don't have another Mac to switch to. I need to know if there is a solution or is the thing just too old? I did open it up and blow out the dust, but it did not help this problem.
