    OK, so I was advised to take out the RAM from my 24" iMac, get the dust out of there, and then put it back in, based on the 3 beeps I sometimes get during startup (which mean that "it has no good banks").
    I am pretty sure it is the same thing that is causing the kernel panics (please say if you need to look at the report), but I am not sure. I've tried the RAM thing twice, and it doesn't seem to work.
    Is next step to replace the RAM? The computer is only a little more than a year old, so the warranty is still valid. Do I need to call Apple, or the store where I bought the computer (we don't have an Apple store here).

    Thanks in advance.

    Please refrain from posting nonsense like this on these forums. RAM is considered a user-replaceable part on the OP's computer, and what he has done so far does NOT void the warranty or even come close to infringing on it.

    Whether or not that's true, you can't take your own computer's limitations and extrapolate that to all Macintosh computers. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1760

    Also the RAM. Which is user-serviceable in every Apple laptop (and desktop, for that matter) that doesn't have the memory soldered to the motherboard. Even the Mini, which makes replacing the RAM a major hassle, doesn't have its warranty voided when you open it unless you screw something up.

    It seems like Mac OS X is tripping up on some type of hardware that is connected. Please try removing any hardware you have connected.

    The only things I have connected, are the mouse and keyboard that came with the computer (mouse connected to the keyboard)

    It also seems like Mac OS X is tripping up on your network. Try disabling all network connections and see if the kernel panics still happen.

    Well actually it it seems like that downloading triggers it the most times. Maybe it is just a coincidence. Though, since it beeps 3 times sometimes (no good banks), couldn't that be the reason for the kernel's as well?
