I have a Macbook from 2006 (i think). It was one of the first core 2 duo models. Currently running Snow Leopard with 3gb Ram. Anyway, until recently I had never had an issue in the 5 years i've had it. However recently, my web brower has been crashing and i get the screen saying "you must restart your computer". Does this with chrome, firefox and safari. Shockwave player also crashes quite a bit. Usually I can restart it fine and it works, but if i do anything like loading lots of tabs, it will often crash again. Usually the browser just exits, no screen telling me to restart though. That doesn't happen that often. Well not since i erased everything and installed osx again. Before that it happened a bit which makes me think it might be software related -or ram (see below) Before I did a clean install, i would also sometimes get the 3 beeps on startup after the kernel panic. If i shock it around a bit and took the ram out and put it back in it seemed to fix it. I have not experienced this since I did a clean install though. I read that having faulty ram can cause a kernel panic- and the 3 beeps on startup is to do with ram. Do you think my ram is the issue here? I will probably be replacing the computer with a MBA soon, but would like to hold out another year if I can. Other than this it works flawlessly and is fine for everything i do. Ideas?
