I have a iBook G4 14" Processor: 1.42 GHz PowerPC G4 running mac OS X version 10.4.10
My iBook has been randomly freezing sometimes with a grey message box saying i need to restart my computer (I forget if it says error) other times a wall of text with black background where the text is comes up on the screen when it freezes saying something about bad kernals and other times it just plain freezes. I dont know to much about Computer problems so I dont know what kernals are other than something to do with ram I do have a added 256 MB DDR SDRAM stick along with my 512MB built in ram. Some times THe computer wont start up at all I press the power button and the screen stays black so I hold the power button down and it turns off then rinse repeat. Today i had to do that about 20 times before it booted up normally.
It usually only crashes the first 10-15 minuets I start using it after that it has been working fine for hours. I have been reading about logic board problems and I looked into the guts of my laptop and couldnt find the chip they were talking about that is giving it problems so i put it back together because I'm not totally sure that it is the same problem as that.
I dont know how to access my kernal error log reports so If posting those here wuld be helpfull please tell me how to access them thanks.
