    Problem:

    Mac will not boot from CD/DVD or HDD. Will boot into verbose, single user and safe boot (which I am using now to write this). My Mac is modified. I replaced the factory RAM and HDD with 4 GB CL2 Crucial RAM and 500 GB @ 7200 RPM Seagate Momentus HDD. Bought a new battery from Apple (Fastmac having issues with their supplier). As stated, I am writing this to you in safe boot. I was working with the aftermarket components for a month before this kernel failure. I remember that I did a software update weeks before the panic but no problems. My screen gets weird artifacts on it while doing the panic screen that instructs you to restart the mac. I notices that this artifacting (lines) in the screen happens in single user mode as well. I have never seen this. My screen in safe boot looks fine. I do not know how to decipher my kernel panic report. Can anyone help me with this. I will try to run diskwarrior and techtool pro eDrive to see if the file structure was intact. I did run disk utility to repair permissions and see that the same iphoto permissions had to be repaired. During the last kernel panic, these same permissions had to be repaired. I don't know why that is, but it doesn't feel good. At least I have safe boot for now. Any help will be appreciated.

    The fact that you can't boot from DVD is really bizarre.

    The last time I had a bad case of kernel panics it was because I messed up some permissions on some folders in my home directory. On another mac it was because my hard drive was toast.

    The graphic artifacts suggest a logic board problem, but i'm no expert. If you bought it in late 2007 I suspect it's a Santa Rosa MBP which has been known to have a failing GPU.

    Similar issue

    Hey -- I am in the midst of a similar issue. MPB 2.4GHz (T7700) Intel Core 2 Duo w/ 8600M GT bought new in july or august of 2007. Said mbp is in the midst of a disk verification and I can't get specs, but I swapped out original ram 2 years ago for 4mb of aftermarket ram installed by a certified apple dealer. Original harddrive, external firewire drive used for timemachine. Running 10.5.7

    My issue begins with visual artifacts -- horizontal and vertical dot matrix lines -- looks like a tartan pattern. At this stage it only responds to power button held down. Upon restart, there are artifacts above the apple and the "hourglass" indicator -- then the full tartan reemerges to be followed by the kernel panic box. A full SMC reset works to restore normalcy, but this process repeats within hours. The kernel panic log is similar to the one that you posted -- next time it happens, I will post mine.

    Was your issue resolved? If so how?
