Powerbook kernel panics when unplugged, bis

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Everytime I unplug our powerbook from the adapter, it gives me the message to restart the computer. I tested it again and then I got lines of data on screen saying: system failure: cpu=0 and then something about the ATI card in it.
I would have taken a picture, but camera is in repair.
With adapter plugged in, it all works perfectly.

What I did the last week leading up to this. I got 1GB ram from Kingston and I tested the DVI port on our new LCD TV. My brother uses iTunes with an external drive.

System is a Powerbook 15", 1.25ghz, 1.25GB Ram and 10.4.5.

Any tips, hints tricks, solutions might help?

Sorry about double post, bad connection.

I will test later if the Ram is the problem. I just checked some othe mac sites and Kingston memory is not the way to go.
Here is another question then, I checked the Ram I took out and that one was from Apple and they had it from Samsung. The Ram from Kingston is also from Samsung, so what is the problem then?

Did you remove the new RAM and then see if that fixed it?

Any particular stick of RAM can be defective.

Well, I switched the Ram and tried to reproduce the problem. THe problem didn't occur again.
I also tried the new Ram again and there was no problem.

I tried some websites yesterday and on one particular website Safari crashed, with both old and new ram. SO I deleted the site and tried the site again today and there was no problem, everything seems to be working fine again, plugged and unplugged.

Next time something happens I will try to take picture.
