View Full Version : Help! Powerbook 15" has Kernel Panic Error when pressure is applied left of trackpad

Jan 17, 2008, 03:37 PM
I'm having problems with my powerbook freezing up and needing to be restarted. It's been concluded that when you apply pressure left of the trackpad it freezes with a kernel panic error.

Does anyone know if this can be fixed without a new logicboard? What causes the kernel panic error? Is it allways a hardware problem??

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Erm, this is quite obviously a hardware problem. There's not really much you can do other than either take it apart to diagnose yourself, or take it into a technician. Even the crash logs won't really help you here. :o
