    For some reason my powermac has started to randomly freeze up. It goes to a blue screen then goes back to normal then does it again like 2 seconds later. If does theses two quick freeze up with blue screen like every 10 seconds or so. Ran the hardware test and that came up with nothing. Haven't installed any new sofware/hardware. Anyone have an idea what could be wrong? Thinking about just reinstalling OSX. BTW this post took about 15 minutes to write thats how bad it is.

    How much free space do you have on your (boot) HD?

    Ok... shouldn't be a problem, then... ;)

    Have you tried the usual mumbo jumbo™?
    - repairing permissions
    - running periodical
    - logging into another account on your Mac (make one if you have to)

    Thanks so much :) This is my first mac so I didn't know what repair permission was. Just searched and figured out how to do it and it seem to have fixed the problem. Thanks again.
    If it comes back I'll try your other 2 tips.
