My computer has started randomly popping up a grey screen which tells me to restart. It keeps happening and obviously something is wrong. Not sure if it is a hardware failure but something's broke! Anyone know what the deal is? Here is my latest panic log:

From what you're describing, it sounds like a Kernel Panic. They are typically caused by hardware issues.

More information on causes and solutions can be found here.

New York, Baby!
Also, try another keyboard/mouse or remove all USB devices and only connect your keyboard and mouse to the computer.

What mac do you have? Or is it a hackintosh?

It's a Powerbook G4. The only USB item i have connected is a wireless mouse. I'll try keeping it unplugged and see if it resolves the issue.

You wouldn't by any chance have a dual-band AirPort router right? And are running 10.4.11 on your PowerBook?
