Filemaker 9.0 that has been working, without any problems,has begun to crash every time it starts up. This is in a mac G4, 10.4.11 with 2 GB of ram. I loaded a new version & it continues to crash at the same point in its startup.

Sheldon, The data might really be gone. There are several reasons you might lose data with Filemaker 7 including the file being closed unexpectedly due to power failure, so the application doesn't close the file properly, or the Filemaker application unexpectedly quitting. However, the data might still be recoverable in this scenario. Under the File menu there is a recover command you can try that will create a new "Recovered" file from the current one. Additionally, I strongly recommend you start a daily incremental back up for your FileMaker database files. While corruption issue are rare, accidentally deleting a record, or information in a field, or purposeful sabotage by an unhappy employee is permanent without a backup. Additionally, a back up would provide a solution for recovering the data in the event client data disappears in the future.
I hope I've done a good job answering your question. I am a FileMaker 7 expert (and 8, 9, and 10 as well); if you have any additional questions I will do my best to answer them. If my answer was helpful for you I'd appreciate a 5 thumbs up rating, or a click on the yes this was helpful button. Thank you!
your having an overheating problem its either your processor or your chipset inside the laptop..let it rest for a while put a cooler pad under your laptop while using it to prevent further damage..i suggest you backup all your data also before it crashes permanently..also bring it to your nearest mac service center...hope this helps
Try updating Quark first and reopen the document, if the problem persists, remove the preference file - this may have become corrupt.
Often a Quark crash is related to corrupt fonts, or fonts sharing the same id number as others already on the machine. Do you use a font manager such as Suitcase?
When you ran diagnostics, were you starting up from the AppleCare CD/DVD (or whichever diagnostics disc it was)? If you were and the system didn't crash, that would likely point to a software problem causing your trouble. Have you tried booting up in 'safe mode' by holding down the SHIFT key? That would be my next troubleshooting step. Also, what computer is this?
Sounds like you may have some sort of Hardware problem.
Possibly the Hard Drive may be bad.
Go to Disk Utility in Applications >> Utilities >> Disk Utility
Select your HD in top LH corner of Disk Utility then click Verify Disk
OS X very seldom crashes or freezes unless it has some sort of Hardware issue.
