    It was going on four years old and I pretty much never turned it off since I pulled it out of the box. It's started doing a thing where it goes into what looks like sleep mode but the cooling fan runs full speed and after a power off and reboot it goes to a white screen with a hardware interrupt error.

    :wtc:

    Time for a new boxen, me thinks.

    Do you have any 3rd party ram? I would pull all of that and only run the Apple stuff for a while.

    My PPC G5 was doing this and it ended up being bad RAM.

    I'm typing this on a first generation iMac 2GHz Intel Core Due, which has also been running pretty much non-stop since I got it in late January 2006.

    My serial number tells me...
    Name: iMac Intel (core duo)
    Model: Mxxxx iMac Intel (core duo) 2.0GHz
    Bus speed: 667MHz
    Screen size: 20 inch
    Memory - number of slots: 2
    Factory: W8 (Shanghai China)
    Model introduced: 2006
    Production year: 2006
    Production week: 02 (January)
    Production number: 2474 (within this week)


    So running for about 38 months now with only restarts for whatever updates needed to be done.

    Gotta wonder how long it'll go for... :dunno:
