Hi, everyone. I have 2-year old MBP out of warranty and unfortunately I won't have a chance to go down to an Apple Store to get the problem diagnosed for another couple weeks at least. I get a kernel panic message at startup right after the gray screen with the logo, at the point when the login screen should appear. In single user mode, I ran the "/sbin/fsck -fy" command and on the first try, it repaired something and on subsequent tries, it says everything appears to be OK. While in this mode, I tried checking the panic log but nothing recent shows up in it. I was able to successfully log in normally twice: The first time, I restarted from the DVD to run Disk Utility. Everything came up OK. I then was able to log in again, but the computer froze within minutes. I've already reset the PRAM and NVRAM. I also tried resetting the SMC but don't know if that did anything or not. Since the panics, the battery indicator does seem to be weird: I've only been using it with the AC plugged in and it will tell me it's fully charged one time and the next time I use it, it'll be red the whole time. I can't do the following: - Boot from DVD - Boot in safe mode I can: - Run Apple Hardware Test from the DVD (I ran the basic test 5 times and the extended test once... they all came back clear) - Use single user and verbose modes without any issues (however, if I choose to start up the system while staying in single user mode, it'll freeze) If there's any other info that I can provide, let me know. I appreciate any insight! Thank you!
