Hardware fault?

WTF?

Update.

Apparently now solved.

One of his offspring has a Harry Potter game. An update to this got pushed out the other day and the Mac hasn't gone titstup since.

While I'm all in favour of having cause and effect, I'm still scratching my head trying to work out why an iffy game that isn't running at the time can cause a machine to shit itself on a regular basis. Presumably something in there has its claws in the GPU subsystem in a way it really shouldn't.
