Just installed Tiger on my Quicksilver and applications like Safari, iTunes, Excel are crashing more then they should (at least one crash a day). Everything worked fine for a week or so. I made sure the RAM was secure and tried reinstalling Office but those attempts yielded nothing. Disk permissions have all been repaired also. Also of note is the fact that when I woke the computer up from sleep there was a kernal panic. The memory and hard drives are all old (RAM is 5yo, main HD is 5 and newer HD is 2). I'm thinking memory? Any other suggestions to help determine what is going on? Thanks.

PS-As I was typing this message, iTunes crashed

I would say ram might be an issue.

Give memtest a whirl. It takes an hour or two for it to make 3 passes, but it'll catch what the Apple Hardware Test might miss.

I have a theory about the Quicksilvers, especially the duallies, that the RAM gets too hot in these sandwiched right between the CPU heatsink & the video card, and that it goes wonky with time.

I'll download and give it a try. Your theory about the location of the RAM makes sense, especially since I'm running faster CPUs that certainly make more heat even with the upgraded fans. Thanks for your replies.

Well I moved the two RAM chips to the last two slots from the processor. It was only about an inch further away from the heat but nothing has crashed in the last couple of days. I am planning on investing in three new 512 MB sticks.

Could be the logic board.

P.S. My MacBook Pro trackpad is giving me a headache.
