    I'm having problems with my powerbook freezing up and needing to be restarted. It's been concluded that when you apply pressure left of the trackpad it freezes with a kernel panic error.

    Does anyone know if this can be fixed without a new logicboard? What causes the kernel panic error? Is it allways a hardware problem??

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Erm, this is quite obviously a hardware problem. There's not really much you can do other than either take it apart to diagnose yourself, or take it into a technician. Even the crash logs won't really help you here. :eek:
