    I have been recently getting Kernel Panics on my Macbook Pro.
    It started after using Lion for a while. After getting them for some time I decided to do a fresh install of SL.
    But the problem keeps on persisting. I thought it might have been my HDD, so i bought a new 7200rpm Seagate hdd, but that didn't help either :(
    Could anyone give me some tips on what might be up with my computer? This is getting very annoying.

    Thanks in advance.

    Here are two of my recent KP's:

    This sounds like a hardware problem. It is either:
    1. Bad RAM --> Try the original Apple RAM, which came in your Mac.
    2. A bad SATA-cable (too long, bad shielding). Have you two HDDs/SSDs in your MBP? If yes, remove the second drive.

    I thought it was the OS or a file system problem, but it seems to be independent of the OS and independent of the file system.
