    This is our first Mac and while I know how to trouble shoot with Windows, I'm lost (though very happy) with our Mac. We haven't had any problems at all since we bought our Mac about 3 months ago but today it just shut down twice in a row. Here's what I copied out of the Console

    How much memory do you have installed and was it from apple or a third party? The reason why I ask is because there is an issue with imacs shutting down when you have 16gb of ram installed.

    I believe it's just the standard 4gb. It's the 21.5" iMac straight out of the box. Never had anything done to it.

    Can you tell me more about this? I thought it was maybe a video card problem or some kind of confliction with Adobe CS5.

    My computer makes a pop sound and then just randomly turns off. It's brand new and we did get 16gb ram installed...
    Is there something we can do to fix this problem?

    Thanks

    You may not get much response from the thread starter since it was started more than three years ago with the last post in April of 2011.
