System specs are in the sig. I'm running Panther 10.3.9 and the PB is 1st Gen. My PB suffered a small drop a while ago and ever since then, it has been very sensitive to pressure on the left hand side where the HD is. For example, if I am typing and rest the heel of my palm on the surface there, every now and then doing so will cause a kernel panic. Today I bumped my desk and apparently jarred my PB enough that it KP'ed on me. So, I rebooted. KP at the grey Apple logo screen. Reboot. Same. Reboot. KP at the desktop. Reboot. Success... then KP randomly as it sat idle a few minutes later. As of now, it's up and running, but I had to go through almost an hour of KP reboots with varying levels of boot progress before the KP popped up. Any ideas what might be making my system so unstable? Could I possibly have damaged my HD from the bumps it took? Any fix-it ideas?
