If the black screen you are referring to has a message in four languages, you are having kernel panics.
Kernel panics may be either hardware or software related.
Try running repair disk from your software install DVD to see if there are directory problems.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 18, 2008 9:18 AM (in response to xie_152)Hi, you said something about turning the rosetta box on and off, can you post a link where i can find how to do that? i've got some problems finding it.
I'm experiencing exactly the same thing. On my side it seems more related to video playing in the browser (Safari/Firefox). I've noticed that it does happen once I've played some video (I guess through the video plugin embedded into Safari or Firefox... i.e. Youtube etc... Maybe Flash??).
I thought it might have been a problem related to Safari/Firefox plugins, but now I'm reading about Rosetta issues and this Kernel panics thing.
Mac OS X will crash when I try to quit Safari/Firefox, but it won't if had't played any video through the browsers...macbook early 2007, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedMay 24, 2008 5:28 PM (in response to xie_152)I have also had a crashing problem with Safari. Everything locks up and I have to do a hard reboot. The kernel panic screen doesn't show its face. BonEcho works perfectly fine and has never crashed on me. But I would like to know what the story is with Safari.Intel Dual Quad, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
Currently Being ModeratedMay 30, 2008 8:45 AM (in response to Tvenice)Same here. Had several kernel panics in the past two days and never had them before. In all cases, Safari was open and is referenced in the incident report. I've deleted and reinstalled it -same problem. Now, I am in Firefox. So far, no problems.
