    Power Mac Quicksilver G4 continually crashing

    I have a Power Mac G4 quicksilver with OSX 10.5.8 that has always been quite unstable and flakey, (freezing up and crashing out of the blue) but in the last few months has become almost unusable. I'm no kind of expert but I always thought it might be a processor problem. I'm just wondering if anybody can give me more info on this issue and can anything be done to help.

    I have attached to pics of the error messages I'm getting.

    Hopefully somebody can translate!

    Have you installed any memory recently? Incompatible/bad memory is the #1 cause of kernel panics on a Mac.

    Also, what speed is your processor, and is it a OEM G4 or a upgrade card?

    Also boot from your install disk and run Repair Disk as this can also be a sign of a failing hard drive.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
