    Some on the Apple forms say I have a loose graphics card chipset with my
    iBook G4 and why I get the occasional Kernel panic (although NEVER EVER
    IN SAFE MODE). He says that my card itself may be good and why neither
    the Apple hardware test nor Tech Tools pro can find the problem.

    Yet others on a yahoo group are saying that its a bad memory socket.

    Unfortunately the closest genius bar is 4 hours away so I will need to
    use third party repair centers. I had one of them install a hard drive
    almost a year ago so I can rule out their job as the culprit as it just
    started to act up after I installed Missing Sync 2.03 (which they tell
    me know is not Tiger compatible). Since I have removed Missing Sync the
    kernel panics are not as common but I got another one when waking up my
    iBook G4 from sleep this morning. But did not after reboot. I have since
    disabled all startup items to see if this is the culprit
    (http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/kernelpanics.html).


    If anyone has suggested please let me know. Thanks!!!
