Morning -

Hopefully I get this posted before it does it again -

 

With out a clue where to look - where would a report of it's last few hours of operation be sitting.

I seem to have forgot.

 

Everything seem to run well - open Safari - able to post to forums -

walk away to get coffee - and it's restarting -

 

I've never seen this action before - it hasn't been used the last month -

I let it do the last security update last night - I'm still on 10.6.8

    Go into "Console" and you can find all sorts of logs, crash reports etc. in there.

    Sorry Phil.... that's all gobbledygook to me!

     

    Hopefully someone will have some idea what it means and know how to help.

     

    All I can suggest is that you re-install the operating system.

     

    Good luck anyway!

    that's a Hardware problem:

     

    Machine-check

    ...

      Uncorrected error

    panic(cpu 0 caller 0x2aaf41): Machine Check at 0x013e332a, thread:0xf18b3d4, trapno:0x12, err:0x0,registers:

    CR0: 0x80010033, CR2: 0x7c9b1000,

    Most of these turn out to be Uncorrected RAM Errors.

    It does not appear to be reporting the address of the Error.

    First of all, check the RAM modules with Apple Hardware Test.
