Hi All. Got my first mac (iMacG5) this May and all was good. However,in the last week it has bluescreened twice on me. It's a bit disturbing.
When it happens the fans rev up and I have to switch it off/on.

Advice and comments much appreciated.



I found below interesting log, which seems to give a good clue. Is this related to the recently announced Apple repair extension programme?
