    Hello!

    I have a MacBook Pro 2.2GHz, bought it last year in july. I didn't bought the Apple Care and luckily it started to have kernel panics two months after the warranty expired.

    I live in Brazil (if you don't like apple support in the US, you have no idea what we have to deal with here), and before taking the machine to an authorized partner, i would like some help of you guys.

    Can anyone identify the issue by the kernel panic logs? Some of then happened when i was simply watching a video (once flash video, another time it was real player) and other panics happen with a simple mouse rollover on the dock.

    I can't identify any specific situation for then to happen (even tried using with and without the battery), and they are happening more frequently. Most of the times the screen freezes and I wait a lot for the panic message before turn it down, but only six of them the message appeared and a log were saved in the log folder.

    So, if any one can please help me. If its just a software issue that can be solved by reinstalling the system i'll be happy. What I really wouldn't like to do now is pay for a technical assistance and maybe wait for a whole month before get my macbook back (yeah! that's Apple Brazil!)

    Some things that may help:

    - the machine was on without any rebooting for almost 20 days before the first panic.
    - one of the panics happened after download the latest quicktime update, but before restarting the machine. so it was downloaded twice.
    - the last few days the crashes happen frequently, some times with intervals of less than 6 hours. some of then right after rebooting after a kernel panic.

    I'm posting the first two panics logs on this post and the other four on the next one.

    I recently made a trip to kernel-panic land. Mine happened right after an OS update, going to 10.5.4.

    It was caused by Time Machine. Do you have Time Machine switched on? In my case, Time Machine panics the kernel because the destination volume was corrupted. I deleted the backup (highly counter-intuitive when kernel panics are going on!) and allowed TM to create a new one and it never happened again. Apple support talked me through dragging the backup volume to disk utility to attempt to repair it but it was too fouled up. The root cause was that I allowed my macbook to sleep and if it happens to sleep while a TM backup is happening, corruption can occur. Yes, I know. You would think TM would be more robust. I found out that mine were TM related because I just happened to be looking at the screen when a panic occurred. I noticed the TM arrow started spinning just before each panic. I switched off TM and the panics stopped.

    In your case, it definitely sounds like it could be hardware. Hardware is the most common cause of repeated kernel-panics and windows blue-screens. I know it's difficult to get Apple service in Brazil, but you might be facing a hardware issue. Hardware includes RAM. You might grab a copy of test software and test your system RAM. It's easy for you to replace if it's the culprit. Onyx and MainMenu are freeware programs that can help diagnose system problems. I can't think of a program to test RAM, other than the test tools that come free with a .mac/mobileme subscription but I'm sure there's something out there.

    Some have had success with Memtest, but personally I've found that pulling RAM is a more reliable method diagnostics.

    I'm guessing you have an Nvidia card in there. Looks like it is going bad. It is always the window server crashing and you can see the nvidia kernel module causing it, indicating a hardware problem with the card.

    So it sounds like the filesystem on your backup drive was messed up, in which case DiskWarrior probably would have fixed it without having to lose your existing backups. I know it doesn't help now, but for future reference... :)

    Yes, it ought to be more robust. In fact, OS X is designed prevent any sort of disk corruption due to unexpected sleep or loss of power, regardless of Time Machine or any other program writing to a disk. That's what Journaled HFS+ is supposed to do. You should be able to remove power in the middle of a write operation, and the disk will remain in a consistent (uncorrupted) state. Something obviously went wrong if corruption occurred anyway.

    Of course, Time Machine still has to figure out for itself that the last backup was interrupted and deal with it accordingly, but that's outside the realm of the kernel. Errors there would never cause kernel panics. The first few releases of Leopard had some trouble with this sort of situation, but again, it was only within Time Machine - TM got confused and wouldn't do new backups until you manually deleted the last partial backup. No panics, though. It's improved quite a bit in the latest releases. Our MacBook sleeps all the time in the middle of backups and we've had no problems recently.

    I will try putting back the ATI Radeon X1900 Mac G5 Series I had in my machine until two months ago. I pulled it out because after updating to Leopard, it was redrawing all image file icons on the desktop like molasses upon login.

    I had such problems. Managed to swing a brand new MacBook Pro (after 1 year) just this week.

    Good luck.

    Interesting.... I have a similar problem... EXACTLY the same caller ID. But no loadable modules in my backtrace, and the thread that crashes is random.

    Eliminate the possibility of simply having corrupt drivers. Attemp to make a backup and then archive and install. If that isn't the case, then you're out of luck.
