    I have had 4 Kernel panics over the past 2 weeks or so, I use the disk utility every time and it seems to be fine, I can't understand it... Here's what the report said:

    Have you run a hardware test to rule out funky RAM? And is there anything common among all the panics? When you start a certain program or when you right-click or anything like that?

    No I haven't, where is the test program located?


    There isn't a thing common among them I don't think. 1 was plugging in my external hard drive, 2 was watching a dvd, 3 was using logic and 4 was opening firefox.

    The hardware test should available on your OS X install disc. Instructions on how to access the test and what to expect when running it can be found here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303081

    Did an advanced as well as a normal scan, both came out fine. I'll more than likely take it to me local apple store. Thanks anyway


    And my apple phone support just ran out. Just my luck! :mad:

    Seing you have a C2D MBP, you still have >6 months to do get AppleCare. But now is not a bad time to do it.

    I am no expert but I think that this line points to the issue

    Backtrace, Format - Frame : Return Address (4 potential args on stack)

    Is there a specific action that triggers the kernel panic?
    If you've repaired permissions have you tried re-setting the PRAM?

    Hope that helps! :)

    Help urgently needed.

    I'm a music student at uni, I have my final exams and assignments at the moment. My problem is my c2d macbook pro keeps on having kernel panics (3 in the last 24 hours) I've run both the disk utility and applejack in single user mode (it does the same as fsck along with disk utilities functions) and it hasn't helped the situation. I'll include the panic report below and any advice will be gratefully received so thanks in advance.

    Maybe something to do with your airport card, if you don't need the internet (via airport) to do your assignment then I would turn it off for now and get it checked at an apple store later on.

    If you do need the internet can you get it through a wired connection.

    I don't know why my thread was merged with another, seeing as the kernel panics we are having are different, but if it's the best way forward who am I to argue?

    Anyway thanks for your advice, I've disabled my wireless card and I'll get it look at once the year is over.
