Hey Guys and Girls

I've encountered a strange problem today. Within 30 mins I was forced to restart my mac and I don't understand why.

Can anyone please help. Check out the attached image.

Thanks!

That's a kernal panic. I think you need to go to Disc Utility when you get booted and repair permissions.

That is kernal panic you can go in console and see what caused the issue. it is either going to be hardware or software related. My one iBook G4 does this every 5 hours of use.

Put any new memory modules in lately?

Next you have not supplied any model or operating system details, but do you have Apple Hardware Test on the original system install discs, disc one?

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!
