I have an iBook G4, 1.33Ghz, 14.1"

Couple days ago, it started freezing up and this gray window of "press the power button for few secs to shutdown" in 4 languages. I did that and then it stopped booting, instead this message keeps showing. I tried nvram thing and was able to get it to load.

I backed everything up and wipe the drive clean and re-install 10.5.4

Started back up OK for a few hours, then I get this message again. I was able to boot - go straight to Open Formware etc... had to do the reset nvram

I was able to boot and copied the error message below. Can some shed some light? Need it for homework...... :-(

Sorry for the long message. I know it's going to cost a fortune to take it to a shop. Hopefully I can get some help and resolve the issue.

Thank you!
