    I assume Best Buy (BB) allows for receipt lookup (through payment method except cash) like any decent retailer does?

    The warranty shouldn't be voided if you open the user-serviceable parts (HD, RAM), so as long as you put the original parts back, then you should be able to take it back.

    What was the last thing that you were doing before the kernel panic? Did you install some new RAM or a Hard Drive?

    When I realized he was talking about a MacBook I deleted it.

    was it broken before you took all the screws out and pulled the hard drive? I don't really understand why you did that.

    The HD on a MacBook is user replaceable. He may have just wanted to reseat it to make sure there wasn't a bad connection.

    You've done what you can by the looks of that thread. Either take it to an apple store for repair or get your parents to figure out, without a receipt, how to prove to best buy that you just bought the laptop so you can return it.

    First of all, just for tonight, walk away from your MacBook. Watch a movie, drink a beer, go to bed. You're panicking now, and you'll never fix anything in that mood.

    What you're seeing is not a kernel panic.

    No one here can fix this for you. Your only option is to take it back to Best Buy or an Apple store, preferably to an Apple store.

    Drink a beer? The OP sounds like they're 12. I hope you're not really suggesting they drink!

    Obviously the gist is that he get away from the problem and relax.

    i bought a sony laptop from best buy a few years ago when i lived in ohio, i since then moved to southern california and had to take my computer in for warrrenty work but i also misplaced my receipt but they ran it through the computer and printed up my receipt for me. i also used my credit card to pay so it was on record.

    there should also be a little hole on the cd drive where you take a pin and poke it in there to manually eject the cd if it's stuck in there.

    There's not.

    To force-eject a disk, startup the computer while holding the mouse/trackpad button, until you see the spinning wheel - then release. It should pop right out.
