    Unfortunately, there's nothing good in there. It's unlikely to be software related and more likely to be hardware related.

    Soooo.. some information about how it happened, on what it happened, how often it happens, and what 3rd party hardware you've put in there. Specifically RAM, as that's most likely the issue.

    I did installed 4gb of ram last week from OWC computing (techworks brand), I have had several Airport KP, and I tought this was an Airport KP because I was running on battery and then the internet started to fail... and BOOM, just like the Airport KP.

    Well.. there's absolutely no indication that it was related to airport. And all the hex stuff really point (to me) at the RAM. Particularly since it's 3rd party RAM and Macs are notorious for being RAM picky. I suggest you download MemTest and run it in Single User Mode. Run multiple passes.

    Just ran memtest twice and it ended with a nice:

    ''ALL TESTS PASSED.''

    So, what should I look for, RAM seems to be fine.

    Reproducability. If you can get it to reproduce, it might help you find the cause.

    Is there any way that this could just had been a one time thing and thats it? or is this something I am going to have to research and return the computer (Just got it last week)

    That's why I asked earlier how often this happens.

    It's entirely up to you if it's a problem. For some folks, once a month is no big deal, more than that.. we'll I'd be upset. KPs should be a rare occurance.

    Hey, I'm no expert on Kernal's but it seems like it was a HD error.
    Like I said not an expert, but that's what I'm reading.

    yeah, me too, btw this is the first time this has happened, Ive had many KP but they were all airport related (I believe its a software problem from apple, waiting for a fix) and all the KP airport and this one have happened running on battery.
