I keep getting a kernel panic (the computer forces a message telling me I must restart) with a MBP I just bought off ebay. It's a MacBookPro8,2 (late-2011), 2.4GHz, i7 - the seller installed 16GB of RAM and assured me that it would be compatible in this model. Once I got it it worked fine but only briefly. After a few hours of using it I started getting this kernel panic whenever I tried to do something, even while trying to reinstall Lion so I took it into the Apple store. They tried to run a diagnostic but once it got to checking the RAM it just froze up. They said this MBP was only rated for 8GB of RAM and that I should go to down to that and it should be ok. When I came home I took (2) 4GB sticks out of my old MBP and installed them in the one I just bought and it's been working fine. My question is, can the MacBookPro8,2 handle 16GB of RAM? If so, is this type of RAM compatibile...? Komputer Bay brand 8GB PC3-10600 DDR3 1333Mhz 8192MB NON EEC 9-9-9-25 Thanks.
