    I just stepped out of my office for a second. When I got back I had on my screen a you need to restart window. :eek:

    Has anyone got this before?

    What could have caused the problem?
    Thanks for the help.

    was it in other langauages as well?

    this is what is a kernel panick, sometimes random

    but it could also be caused by most commonly bad stick of ram

    Unless they you get a couple of them within a few days, i wouldn't worry about it.

    Have you added or attatched any new hardware lately?

    nope, nothing. But, I had a bit of problem with my superdrive. Their was some black thing in it and it came out. But the problem I had with it was just that cds weren't getting in easy, but now it's like whn I got it. i don't think this should be a problem.

    Unless you have more of them happen soon, i don't think its a problem. I have had two or three kernel panics, and they have never been a continuing problem.

    Just sharing some encounter I had which requires me to restart my Mac.

    I once had a G5 os 10.3 which I connect to a system 7 Mac via appletalk network to transfer some files. When the system 7 Mac crashes a couple of times, it brings down my os 10.3 as well. so could it be network connection problems?
