Problem with macbook

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello i have the white macbook 2Ghz CPU, 1G RAM, 80G hard disk.
My problem is that sometimes my mac does not responde to anything and a message appears on my screentelling me that i have to reboot. But i cant reboot, so i have to shut it down by holding for mome secs the power button.
Then, when i try to turn it on, it either boots normaly or it boots with dead screan.
Can anyone understand what its going on with my mac?
Is it a softaware or a hardware problem?
Thanks.

Sorry for any language errors but english is not my native language!.

The message you see is that of a kernel panic. A kernel panic usually (but not always) occurs when there is a serious hardware problem. Faulty RAM is from the most common.

Try to boot your machine and look through the Console application for a panic.log file. There are perhaps some answers therein.
