    Did you run the hardware test in extended mode and looped for a few hours? Some RAM, MLB, display etc issues will be detected not immediately but after some hours of testing.
    Are you sure you have 512 MB RAM only?
    Did Disk Utility report anything wrong or unusual with your hard drive?

    thanks for reply, i will try it more longer.
    I use the OS X tiger boot disk and press D key that doing hardware test about 6 minutes. report everything OK. use disktools and repartition no error. reinstall OS still can't boot up normal. only can boot at safe mode. remember that installed photoshop before. now press power key screen already have a lot of red squares.
    no more idea now. :(
