    I'm running Tiger 10.4.2, it is 800MHz with 128mb built in and a kingmax 512mb ram (wich I've taken out before but havn't been able to say if its the ram or not), combo, here is the latest crash report.

    i doubt many people can tell you based solely on that crash report...

    RAM would be the place to start the diagnostics.

    Sooooooo... how long as his been going on? Did you recently install any new programs/drivers/RAM? Does it happen at random times or is it pretty predictable? More info please.

    Nope, forever. I'm fed up with it. Hector thinks its the ram on the logic board. But I would never be able to prove that to apple because it passes the ram tests.

    it happens most on wake from sleep indicateing ram as when the mac stores it's state in the ram then takes it back all scrabled it's going to cause a problem.

    Do you still have the original apple ram? If you do, run your ibook for awhile with that instead of your kingmax module and see if you still get kernal panics. I had a very simillar problem with my ibook g4 800 and a 512 stick from crucial. I would get kernal panics and system wide freezes that required restarting, but the ram always passed the hardware test.

    For me the problem started slowly, just once a week or so, and then started accelerating over a month and a half. When I went back to the apple ram, I had no more crashes. Crucial replaced it quickly for me and I've had no problems with it since (a little over a year now).

    And as long as the apple techs can duplicate your problem (i.e. it crashes on them too) they should fix it. They don't necessarily need to see a failed hardware test.

    I've never been able to duplicate any of my laptop crashing problems (on a 15"alu also) at the applestore.
