    I've recently picked up an early 2008 c2d 24" 3.06 iMac. The computer powers up, plays the start chime, goes to a grey screen with apple logo and then the spinning gear comes up. After around 60sec the kernal panic screen comes up saying I need to power down the computer.
    I've tried booting off the install cds and with a 10.6 usb drive i made up but it still kernel panics every time on startup.
    Safe mode kernel panics, trying to start in verbrose or single user mode kernal panics.
    Holding the option key allows me to choose the boot device.
    Holding D to start the AHT kernel panics.
    Ram has been removed/reinserted, swaped banks and tried with just 1 board in but no change.
    I've installed a different HD and it still KPs

    After all my testing I believe its either the logic board or graphics card, what do you guys think? does the attached KP log indicate a graphics card problem?

    Where you able to run Apple Hardware Test from the original Install Discs? If so you need to run AHT in Extended Mode to get any meaningful information.

    Update.....

    My 8800 video card was causing the problems. i took my imac apart and cleaned all the old heat past off the video chip (it was old,hard and crusty and it had gone everywhere). Then i got a heat gun and aimed it at the top and bottom of the board for a bit. After it had cooled down i then put everything back together (with new thermal paste) and presto!
    10 days later the computer is still running perfectly, the heat gun method is only meant to be a temp fix but i'm hoping it holds up for a while.


    Hopefully this helps someone

    I don't understand why you used a heat gun. :confused:

    it helps reflow solder to correct joints that may have separated.
