    I am not massively computer literate, and I have lost my MAC system disk, I am running 10.3.9.

    I have seen this on the site before, but don't understand it. I get the gray curtain thing, and then the box with all the languages. This happens, if you leave the computer, with the Internet connected and then wake the computer from the Sleep mode.

    If I buy a new Operating Package / Disc - will the same problem not still exist with my Speedtouch USB modem. I have enclosed a brief bit from my 69 Page system log, to see if that helps anyone help me.

    Cheers guys and inspire me with your wisdom and tell me I don't need to buy a new computer.

    1. Is the kernel panic reproducible?
    2. What, if anything, is plugged into the USB ports?

    I only have the modem and the keyboard connected to the keyboard, and my mouse and printer connected to the USB's on the keyboard.

    On the spare USB port on the computer I use either my digital camera and or my Memory Stick.

    Disconnect everything you are able, especially the modem, and leave them disconnected until either the kernel panic reoccur or it doesn't, and you are satisfied that it is related to something connected to the USB ports. This is why I asked about reproducibility.

    It must be the modem, as nothing happens when it is all disconnected. So....a reinstall????

    I don't see how a reinstall could help. This appears to be a hardware issue, either with the modem, the cable, or the USB ports.
