    Hi all

    was surfing away when suddenly my screen went darkish - was like a curtain sliding down and then on this was a message saying it needed to be closed down and I should press and hold in the power switch and then press it again to re start which it did fine.

    I'll paste the, rather long, report below.

    anyone any dea what was going on ? do I need to do anything ? should I be concerned ?

    i chose not to send report to apple - what are folks opinions on this 0 should one send the report ?

    here's the error report:

    If it only happens once, this is true. Sometimes a sporadic combination of factors can cause a kernel panic (the technical name for what you saw happen), and if it's only once, then there's no need for panic. However, if it reoccurs, then you should definitely do more investigating. In this case, I'd make sure your version of Chromium is up to date, since that's what the report says was the source of the crash (though that's rarely enough to identify the specific cause).

    OK so from this forum I have don't worry about it and from "the other forum" I got:

    That is what is known as a Kernel Panioc attack and is usually hardware related so will not correct itself. Try booting from disc one of the original system install discs which came with your computer, whatever it is, and hold down 'D' and run in the extended mode."

    anyone else have any opinions on the incident and what, if any, action I should take ?

    Do what Mal said and update chrome.

    It looks like Chrome's render (or possibly flash) caused a error in the video card Kext and that caused the Kernel Panic. A Kernel Panic stops the system when something happens that's not suppose to. It's meant to prevent data corruption and possibly hardware damage in some cases.

    Video crashes are the most common (at least in my opinion) type of crashes in OS X. In newer versions of Windows Microsoft added the ability for a crashed video card driver (Windows equivlent to Kext) to recover and reload itself. I wish Apple would implement video crash recovery as well.

    If this doesn't happen often (or only happens using one application), then it's USUALY nothing to worry about.

    Yes, it is a Kernel Panic. It happens rarely (it's the equivalent to the BSOD to Windows). I suggest doing what they said, it could be a hidden hardware problem. (You do need to press CRTL+L to run Extended Mode) If it sees no problem, you should be fine.

    If it happens rarely then you can chalk it up as one of those things. If you start seeing a higher incidence then its related to some hardware causing the problem.

    thanks everyone... I think I'm gonna chalk it down as one of those things. If it happens again I'll follow the other advice given.

    thanks again
