Howdy. I'm a layman when it comes to Mac, first off. About a year ago I purchased, for $300, a used G4 (or possibly G3, I can't really tell the difference for all the trivial factors) desktop Mac that came with Pro Tools and some other creature comfort goodies, so I could record music. Well, within a few months the bugger crashed (naturally), and a friend borrowed it for a time in the hopes of fixing it. Since he borrowed and "fixed" it, it only displays the dreaded Kernel Panic screen that I've done some research on (within my ability, I'm not tech savvy) and discovered plagues many. This is an older computer, I think it was dated to somewhere around Mar. 2005 (that date is listed among the error codes, I presume whatever faulty ware was installed at that time by the previous owner). Guys, I'm stumped. Can you help a fellow out? I want to salvage this beast.
