    ARRRGHHHH! :mad: I feel like I'm using a Windows PC at work :(

    I'm on a Mac OS X, version 10.6.3. Processor 2.66 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo. Memory: 2 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.

    I'm a graphic designer so I always have Photoshop CS4 & InDesign CS4 running simultaneously 8 hours a day. (Firefox 3.6.3 is also running).

    Never had a problem until recently - the screen would suddenly turn WHITE, or BLUE w/ VERTICAL STRIPES. Then I have to reboot.

    I had 3 crashes today.

    I did notice when I was scrolling w/ my (sorta old & ghetto Kensington mouse) that it froze the iMac twice.

    IS THERE A PATCH, OR SOFTWARE UPDATE FOR THIS? Anyone else having similar crashes? :( :apple:

    I don't think software would fix it...

    Did you try checking the HD for faults? If it's becoming faulty, it could cause the system to hang and crash, all it takes is a few damaged blocks/sectors.
