MAC OX froze on Kernel Panic screen

Hi, I have searched for this problem allover the net and read everything and tried everything but nothing has worked. I was loading some up-dates and my mac suddenly went to Kernel Panic black screen telling me to re-boot, so I rebooted and now I have the Kernel Panic screen all the time and Im unable to use the Mac.

I did the hardware test and found no problem, Ive also tried re-loading the disks. does anyone know what I can do ?. Thanks so much for any help !

Disconect any device except mouse, keyboard and display. Does it works?
Try booting with the shift key (safe mode) and see what happens Do you still get Kernel panics?
Did you add third party RAM or did some kind of hardware upgrades?

Also some more informations on the OS, mac model, setup may help.

Did you try booting from the install discs and the running Disk Utility from there on the internal boot drive?
