    Hi everybody,

    its my first post here - thought i would give it a shot hence im having a huge problem that i cant seem to fix myself. A week ago i bought a 27" imac for my office instead of always working on my mbp. I bought 8gb kingston ram for it so that it came up to 12gb. But since i received it i keep getting kernel panics everyday where it tells me to shut of the machine and start it again. Its a huge problem as it doesnt save the work im doing.. :S

    Below is the latest panic log:

    bad ram. pull it and it will stop.

    either have it replaced or return it and buy ram from someplace else.

    OWC, crucial, datamem.

    Page faults usually wouldn't cause a kernel panic, unless it was an "invalid" page fault (seg fault) at the kernel level.

    But it seems like a page in memory was missing altogether.

    So I would have to agree that it's bad RAM.

    There's nothing wrong in particular with Kingston RAM.

    Anyone can get faulty RAM from any other manufacturer. Nothing unusual.
