I've been trying to diagnose multiple kernel panics and startup issues on one of our 1.42 GHz G4 iBooks. Currently, the problem is that when I press the power button, I hear the startup chime but the screen does not work. I have to hold the power button to shut down. When it does boot, and the screen works, it will work for a while but then kernel panic.
I've run all sorts of diagnostics, including the Apple Hardware Test (which it passed).
I've reinstalled Tiger (erase and install).
I have an external hard drive with a troubleshooting partition of Leopard which the 'Book will boot from.

Today I managed to capture this report:
Interval Since Last Panic Report: 2432 sec
Panics Since Last Report: 2

Anyone know what this report is telling me?

Thank you.
