    i have done some research online and it seems that Powerbook G4s on 10.5.2 are having issues with freezing constantly (As mine is). And people have been saying it's due to a video issue that overloads the system under heavy media (games, movies, etc). Someone told me to reinstall and skip the LGP (some video thing) update, and it fixed for him.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    My buddy has a Powerbook 17" G4 running 10.5.2 and plays videos all the time. He rips his DVD's, watches YouTube videos and movie downloads from iTunes and not once has he had an issue with Leopard and video playback. I am his I.T so I would know if he ever had issues.
    Accuse me of policing if you will but you and your bro are seriously violating the EULA by sharing Mac OS X install disks.

    sorry about that.

    well the rams installed are Kingston KVR333So, could this be the issue at hand?

    How did the system operate before installing Leopard? If it ran fine with the previous version of OS X then the ram won't be the problem although hardware failure could occur at any time. Being that it's a video display issue defective ram won't affect that.
    Yes, it may be a good idea to back up your stuff and completely erase and install Leopard.

    Were you going to take the advice and reformat and install?
