Thread: OS X crashing suddenly
10-11-2006, 08:04 PM #1rdaGuestOS X crashing suddenly
I'm on Tiger 10.4.8 on an Intel iMac. Suddenly, I'm getting a frequent black box in four languages saying "OS X has quit, you have to restart your machine". Anybody seen this? Any ideas how to troubleshoot or prevent?

Sound like you have a kernel panic. What was the last thing you did before you started having the problem (.i.e load software, install new hardware)?Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

It's actually happening when I'm away from the computer. I rarely if ever shut down. It just happened again and I was gone for two hours. Came back to the same black box. I haven't loaded any new apps recently so I'm stumped. I cleaned out my cache as was suggested on another post but clearly that wasn't it. I'm always on the latest rev of OSX so I'm stumped. Lastthing I did was add another USB hard drive but I started getting these messages before that.
