friend dropped his powerbook (kernel panic)
A friend of mine dropped his Powerbook G4 a few days ago. When he tried to turn it on he got the message indicating he must restart his computer. I found out this is a kernel panic message. The drive didn't sound good so I swapped it out with a WD Scorpio 160GB drive. I put the Tiger CD in and the computer recognized the new harddrive and I installed it. After rebooting the message came, yet again.
I'm able to boot the computer in safe mode but not in regular. I've tried new ram simms with no success.
Can anyone offer any other advise? I booted the computer into single user mode (command prompt) and tried fsck which came back with no errors.
Thanks in advance,
