G4 Powerbook slowing down

Hi,



I own a G4 1ghz 1 inch powerbook and have owned it since the first release of the 17 inch powerbook. Recently it has been slowing down considerably. What can I do to just generally speed it up.



Some of the issues im having include like the text being slow to appear as im typing, slow internet pages load etc.



I have 1.5 GB ram in it so i dont think the ram is the problem.



Thanks



Logan

    I've found my 600 MHz iMac has slowed a lot since 10.3.6 but i don;t know why yours has. It could be a number of things, try disk permissions, I always do that if anything behaves oddly.

    Already tried that, its just been a gradual slow down since I got it. Kinda like what a windows machine does.

    I've got no idea then, sorry. My iMac has been getting faster (until now) with every update. Why not try asking Apple.

    Try prebindings, it's like when you installed lots non apple software, then the system will slow down, I don't know how to do it by terminal, but u can search for it.... alternatively, you can use opitimizer x or some other apps that can do it.
