    So I've been using my new 2.0GHz aluminum MB and it's been working well. However today I've had two crashes a few hours apart. I was using mail.app and it crashed. The trackpad froze and I couldn't force quit. It was entirely unresponsive and didn't give me the kernal panic dialog box. I had to hold down the power button to shut down. This one was logged in the crash log. My second crash happened when I was watching one of my med school lectures through Flip4Mac in Quicktime. It froze in place and the audio that the professor was saying repeated like a broken record. I couldn't force quit and had to hold down the power button to shut down. (Just like the first crash). It was already loaded into RAM so it's not like it lost internet access and couldn't stream. There was no log on this one. If this computer crashes every time I am trying to watch a lecture it will be unusable as I have to reload the entire lecture if the computer crashes. I have run all of the updates in software update and I actually installed the OS from the dvds. I also installed the Airport Extreme update that they alter pulled.

    I have upgraded the RAM with OWC to 4 GB, but there was more than 2 GB free when it happened the second time. I also upgraded the HDD to the 320GB 5400RPM Hitachi.

    Any suggestions? I guess it's possible that the RAM is bad, but I'll have to run the apple hardware test on everything when I get home. My other thought is that this is software related.

    In the console, I think this message relates to the crash log timing. I have no idea what any of it means:

    10/22/08 1:03:26 PM com.apple.launchd[1] (com.apple.metadata.mds[30]) Exited abnormally: Segmentation fault

    This is the log from the first crash:

    I would remove the ram first and see how it runs. Second to that I would question the new leopard install on that drive. There may have been a hiccup that went undetected upon install.

    Well I was watching another lecture later in the day and it crashed in exactly the same way as it did the second time.

    Since then I have been running the extended Apple Hardware Test to check the RAM. It's gone through about 4 times and haven't found any problems yet. I'm going to continue looping it all night because apparently it can take a while in some cases.

    Tomorrow I'll try one more time on the lectures and then I'll put the original RAM back in. If that works on a few lectures I'll contact OWC.

    Anyone else having problems with the new OWC RAM on their machines?
