    I just took my powerbook into compusa due to kernel panics for the second time now. Last time they had to replace the logic board, so I guess they'll do that again.

    Weird...6 months and no problems. My PB has been on for 22 days now and it's still running great. I want to leave it on longer and beat my ~43 day record, but I have to reboot because of the security update that just came out :wtcj:.

    I guess. but the hardware test CD came back with some sort of error in regards to the logic board portion of the test. 16/64 or something to that effect.

    or a bad kernel mode driver...hard to have a corrupt OS install when you really have no control over it...how exactly does that happen?

    Ah...perhaps bad kernel mode drivers? They are hard to write, and Apple strongly discourages manufactures from providing them, but they still do.

    Speaking of kernel panics, I'm now getting one every time I restart the damn thing... How strange. Any ideas? I guess I could comb through the panic log, but I figured I'd see if any of you guys are having the same problem.

    My pismo has only crashed once and it was because I accidently opened 255 photos from a cd.
