I have reinstalled and trashed the minsys list from the package which has stopped the alert coming up. Now final cut just crashes on opening, I am sure it was something related to quicktime that does this but I can't remember what I did last time this happened. I have trashed the prefs and it makes no difference.

Hi Studio X,
Thanks for your responses, I did blow the dust and reseat the card but no change. After trying everything I decided to reinstall the original 10.4 OSX from the disc. It ran an error on the option to overwrite so I had to go for total erase and would you believe it, it worked!
Whatever had happened there was obviously a problem with the graphics card being read by the system.
Now I have updated tiger back to 10.4.11 and quicktime to 7.6.4 and final cut to 6.0.6 then all seems to be fine again.
some kind of gremlin had got in there.
