    Hi Folks! My month-old iMac (with the QC upgrade and 8 megs of RAM (2 in use) crashed last night for the first time. I had just installed Google Earth and was switching between several screen display sizes (e.g. 1024 x 768) when I suddenly got a blue screen and was booted to a logon page with my accounts listed. After I selected my account, entered the password, etc. everything ran fine again.

    I'm hoping the crash was just because I tried 3-4 different screen sizes within a minute or two. Or, should I be worried?

    If it happens again you should think more about it. At this point there's no point.

    I gotta agree with miles01110. Unless a crash happens repeatedly it is not really anything to worry about as long as everything is still working fine.
