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?

Thanks,

rda

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)?

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.
