G$ Constant Crash - Black Screen Loads of Languages

Registered
Hello

my computer is a g4 runing 10.3.9
hardware overview:

machine model: power mac g4
cpu type: powerpc g4 (2.9)
number of cpus: 2
cpu speed: 450 mhz
l2 cache (per cpu): 1 mb
memory: 1 gb
bus speed: 100 mhz
boot rom version: 4.2.8f1


i brought this comp second hand running os 9 and upgraded it. the problem also occured when i was running os9.

at random times, during different programmes it crashes, a black screen comes down saying, error and please restart. this is repeated in different languages. i think it might be a kernal error but i'm not sure what one is.

my technical ability is limited.

i have worked out how to view the crash log (see below). i have repaired disk permissions.
any help would be great. this is really starting to get difficult. if you could help it would be amazing.

How do I solve this. Is it a hardware problem? If so how do i isolate it? What does a bad processor mean?

Thanks

Yes, hardware problem. A bad processor would mean it has to be replaced. Your machine is a Dual Processor machine.
Do you have the Apple hardware Test CD? If you do, run that in a looping test.

Otherwise, I would have it serviced by an Apple Authorized center.
