Computer just freezes after being on for a few minutes

The computer just started to act up. I tried to reinstall Leopard and it will stop and shutdown. Sometime it will make it to 5 minutes remaining. However it never completes the install. I've replace the ram, hardrives, reset the pram the smu and still no luck. It will boot, but thats it. The leds in back all work 1-3 are lit. Any ideas.


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Shooting in the dark here, but does it only freeze when it's trying to install Leopard? If so, maybe it's a problem with the optical drive?

Maybe to get past the install process, you could use a different computer to install Leopard onto an external drive, then swap that drive into this computer.

Sounds like a bad logic board, but maybe you can try running the Apple Hardware Test and seeing if that turns anything up.
