Ok i have done the search, i have been to apples website, but i have no answer to what happened to me earlier. So i am making this thread.
A few hours ago my iMac G5 just froze for no reason at all, and some text came up on the screen just like when u boot up in Single User Mode, but i could still see the website i had open in the background. I ran the apple hardware test and nothing seemed to be wrong there. I ran disk utility and all seems good. I ran fsck and that was also ok. My comp seems to be running fine now, but i just don't have an explanation for what happened. Maybe one of you apple gurus here can help me.

Ok thanks in advance

PS: i am running 10.4.2

Yeah, that's crazy. Sorry, but it's way over my head. You're saying the text that came up wasn't the usual kernel panic screen telling you to restart in about ten different languages, right?

I reckon this could be a job for Apple Care. :(
