Recently my wife let me know that her Macbook would only work for about five minutes. Now in knowing that her technical knowledge is limited I asked specifically what that meant and she explained that she could visit web pages for a couple minutes and then her browser no longer worked. The computer was still on but no web pages would come up.
After a little troubleshooting I realized the Macbook was out of disk space. She uses Safari primarily so I imagine some temporary cache was filling up and not allowing future web pages to open up. She is running OS X 10.4 so I needed to find out how to clean up the disk a bit. I decided to do two things which included removing GarageBand which she has never used and archiving some of her older music and pictures.10.4, disk space, GarageBand, hard disk, mac osx, macbook, network, OSX, workgroup
