    I am experiencing quite a few kernel panics as of late, about 2 sometimes 3 times a day. It usually happens when I'm streaming a video or attempting to anyways. Ive searched the forums and have done the following:

    Repaired disk and permissions through disk utility
    Reset the PRAM
    Upgraded to OSX Lion
    Software Update

    After all this I still have not been able to come up with a solution to my problem. Ive read it may be a hardware issue, and having said that I think its important I mention that my hard drive crashed about 6 months ago and I got it replaced from Apple. Now my warranty has expired and I need help fixing this. I don't know if all the error messages are the same but I copied the last one and this is what it said:

    Interval Since Last Panic Report: 181653 sec
    Panics Since Last Report: 3
    Anonymous UUID: 95591E7C-87B4-4A1B-AA12-03BC2611F871

    It seems like a core process of your Mac OS has been corrupted. Namely the WindowServer. Its function is described here:

    It renders the image you see on-screen.
    Have you done a fresh reinstall? By that I mean completely wiping the drive, reformatting it, install Snow Leopard, upgrade to 10.6.8, then to Lion? That would most probably solve your issue. However, if a repair install is possible that might work too.

    What's for sure is that your hard drive has not crashed this time. If you have not backed up, then I recommend salvaging data from the hard drive by putting it in an external inclosure and using a 2nd computer (preferably Mac).

    To boot into your DVD instead of the hard drive, hold the Alt key before the chime goes at boot up. Use your arrow keys to select the DVD.

    I have not done a fresh reinstall but I just upgraded to Lion couple of days ago. When i was running snow leopard I did repair permissions through disk utility but panics still occurred. I ran the disk utility repair permissions again after installing lion and this time a whole list of permissions seemed to be getting repaired. Since then (about 4 hours) I have had no panic. Im not sure if the problem is fixed but if it isn't I will reinstall leopard, then to lion like u said.
