Hey guys...I've been having trouble with my Powermac G4 MDD Dual 1 GHz.

The problem is that sometimes it just sudden freezes and stops working. The mouse moves and if I have iTunes open the music continues to play through USB speakers (haman/kardon).

I've ran Disk Utilities several times but it doesn't seem to help.
Could it be something wrong with my hardware --> HD?

The other non-stock hardware I have on is a Bluetooth Adapter and a Linksys 54G Wireless PCI card. But I've tried taking it out and it still does it.

Sometimes it'll work fine. Sometimes it will freeze. theres a 1:2 ratio that it will freeze.

Any help?

Have you tried running the Apple Hardware Test CD that came with your system? That would let you know if you had bad RAM or something... Give it a shot!

oh right! I forgot to put that in...I did and it said it was fine....

And I dont think it could be an OS problem because I reinstalled OS X 10.3.
