    I had just taken my MBP out of clamshell mode. I carried it (in sleep mode) to an area that is closer to my wifi router. Once it was connected to wifi, I opened up the newest CTFxC video and I started watching it. It seemed odd that no video was there, but there was audio coming through. I double clicked where the video would normally be, to bring it to full screen mode. It played in full screen mode for about 1-2 seconds before it kernel panicked. What could be the cause of the kernel panic? It is a new MBP, that I purchased in April.

    BTW, CTFxC is a vlog on YouTube. This means that it is flash based.

    Please people, I am desperate. I need input.

    More info: My MBP has an all stock configuration, except for the 320GB Seagate HDD. The hard drive was pulled from a portable Seagate FreeAgent Go that I got for a good price.

    I was not looking for a solution. Just an idea as to what could have caused this.... If flash known to cause kernel panics?

    How do I do that? I do not know where to find the log. Do I go into Console.app and look there?

    Yes. It should be labeled with kernel panic followed by a date

    It's one of these:

    BlackBerry software/device plugged in
    Parallels
    VirtualBox

    The only thing plugged in was a 4GB SDHC card. I may have had parallels open at the time. But, there was no virtual machine open. I have not used VirtualBox for quite a while, as I now have Parallels. The only thing regarding VirtualBox that I can think of, that may be an issue is that I accidentally corrupted the virtual hard drive.

    Well, all of VirtualBox's extensions are still running. Check this:
