factory installed ram...nothing else.

I went a month without any and now I'm getting a flurry of them again.

RAM can die
</soapierbox>

Seriously, a hardware check is a quick way to narrow down possible problems. Why go through all the hassle of software troubleshooting when you can just replace a SIMM if that's all it is?

It's the built in ram. I have an imac 17". I don't want to take it in for repairs again. I'd rather software troubleshoot and find something wrong that way then deal with idiot repairpeople.

I ran kpdecode on the panic log. It gives

Wed Jan 14 22:59:17 2004 :
Backtrace 1:
0x000857f4: _print_backtrace
0x00085c24: _Debugger
0x000287b4: _panic
0x0008f6a8: _trap
0x000927b8: .L_call_trap

Now I am not specialist to decrypt that, but it looks like bad RAM. In any case, running hardware test is useful to isolate the problem.

I don't know how the hell you got 'bad RAM' from that. It's pretty obvious that's a 'voodoo curse' code, probably put on BR by Carol A.

Any burning sensations lately BR?

Yeah but I don't think waking up drunk on a campfire has anything to do with Carol's superstitions.

Now, zapping the P-RAM and repairing permissions seems to stop the kernel panics but only for a while. They came back this morning after doing it last night and now it's been up for 4 hours straight without a panic.

This symptom consistent with the previous attempts at a diagnosis?

I would think that if it's RAM problems, it may be fine for a while after a restart until you use up enough to get to the bad spot. There are programs that will do RAM checks for you. In Classic, there is a program called Gauge Pro that will do it I think.
post #11 of 20
Kernel panics are almost always caused by hardware problems, either bad RAM, PCI cards, the mobo, poorly written hardware drivers, etc. 4 times out of 5 it's bad RAM.
post #12 of 20
Yup, and Gauge Pro is the best of the lot...if you can still boot into 9. It performs a couple of critical checks that Apple's RAM checker doesn't.

I don't know what just happened to me. I was trying to play UT in Classic. It sucks. Anyway I was trimming down the Extensions seeing what I could just barely get away with to see if that goosed it and all of a sudden the screen faded blue. Then I was at the login screen. WTF mate!?

Aquatic, I KPed playing UT in Classic as well. I decided it wasn't a good idea to play it, and I haven't since then.

The WindowServer crashed. It happens.

You guys do realise there IS an OSX version of the original UT?

As I said, I am not a specialist in decrypting such messages. Simply, in the KP log and the kpdecode output as well, there is no more evidence than errors while accessing some memory addresses.

I had a ridiculous situation a few weeks ago that trashing a certain quicktime DV file would cause a kernel panic each time. Turns out that Norton Systemwerks was installed and the disk tracking option was the culprit.
post #18 of 20
I know how you guys feel. I've been getting at least one a day (mainly the whole machine just freezes - occasionally scrolling script panic).

Mine happens intermittently. Watching a DVD. Using VPC, or even just with iTunes open listening to music and it just hangs and stutters in one spot.

Hardware tested the bloody PB (15" AlBook BTW). Reset PRAM and power managers. Checked the extra RAM. Nothing.

What to do?

Where is your kernel panic log?
