I did a quick search through the forum and didn't see anything specific about this problem. It just started to occur yesterday and nothing has changed on the computer. (Nothing new installed and no external hardware plugged in.)

Basically, it just pops up with the grey screen advising to restart. Sometimes it occurs after waking from sleep, sometimes it occurs after starting up, and sometimes it occurs in the middle of a task. I haven't noticed a specific pattern.

I ran the AHT and everything passed. I also ran Rember and the memory seemed fine in the test. I reset the PRAM and VRAM and the SMC after speaking with Apple. Finally, I reinstalled the OSX clean on the machine and the panics are still occurring.

This is the last panic report from the Macbook 1,1 2.0 with 1.25 GB RAM. I'm hoping it is the RAM and not something with the logic board, but am not sure if that can be ascertained without finding replacement RAM first.

Thanks in advance for any possible insights.

EDIT: I just unplugged the power adapter from the wall and after about a minute or so, the computer restarted on its own. The battery was fully charged, but perhaps that information could shed some more light on the issue.

Here is the most recent report from a short time ago. Perhaps it contains more information. I guess my main question is whether it is possible to discern logic board issues from this report?

Ah, well it looks like it's dead. The Macbook just shutoff again and won't turn back on. The little light next to the iSight blinks faintly green when I press the power button, but nothing else happens. It came to a grey screen briefly the second time I tried, but went black before the startup chime.

This probably points to a logic board failure, right? I would imagine even if it were the hard drive, it could power on and progress a bit further than what is happening. My GF is pretty upset; she loved her little computer!
