My iBook G4 has started running very slow. The beachball icon appears nearly every time I open an application, and browsing the net has become increasingly frustrating. It feels as if the computer can't keep up with the commands I give it. Even the text I type appears several seconds after I type it.
Does this mean my hard drive is finished? I have 30Gb free space...
Watching videos on VLC is a waste of time - the audio plays out of sync and it is generally rubbish. It's driving me mad! What can I do? Would replacement hardware solve the problem? Here is my spec:

iBook G4 PPC
Mac OS X 10.4.11
Processor 1.33 GHz PowerPC G4
Mem 512 MB Built-in

(I have another 512 MB chip which I could install - but it worked perfectly well previously without the need for it)

Thanks ;-)
