I guessed right, you have ATI graphic card. Now I'm not sure but I think the problem is due to your graphic card, it could be.
For this I would suggest you to re-install your OS.

Really??? I've had this same hardware configuration with Ubuntu for at least 3 years. The panic's only started a week or two ago. Do I have no other options????

While your video card might be the source of the problem, I see no reason to come to that conclusion. Your video card drivers are clearly having a problem reading the EDID from the monitor but that shouldn't, under normal circumstances, cause your computer to completely panic.

First thing I'd do is grab a liveCD with memtest and check your memory.

Thanks, Adam.

I ran a memtest (from the boot menu) a couple of months ago, but I ran another just now. No errors.

Did you let it run multiple passes? You could try running off a livecd from another distribution for a day and see if you get the same panics.

No, I just did a single pass. I can let it run overnight tonight. I don't get running from a different distro, though. A memtest is a memtest. Why would a different distro do anything different?

Thanks for your suggestions

Running it on another distribution would let you know if it's a problem specific to a version of software from your current distribution. The kernel should never panic (though, of course, if hardware failure is involved, there may not be anything else the kernel can do) so it would be interesting to see if another version of the kernel does the same thing.

OK. I'll run a memtest from my own distro tonight. Tomorrow night I'll run a memtest from a different distro live CD.

Thanks again

I didn't mean to run memtest from a different liveCD. I meant to actually run another distribution, day-to-day use, from a livecd for a while.

Oh. OK. I've been meaning to move to Mint, so maybe I'll do it that way.
