  1. Death Cab macrumors newbie

    Jun 16, 2010
    I have an 2010 i5 MacBook Pro and lately have been almost unable to even use it due to frequent kernel panics. It is almost guaranteed when I open iPhoto or PhotoBooth that I will experience one. I thought by upgrading to Lion this would fix the problem, but it seems to have gotten worse.

    I have tried running OnyX (repairing permissions, diagnostics, maintenance, etc) resetting P-RAM, and running disk utility. I have gone to energy saver and disabled automatic graphics switching, and they have gotten less frequent.

    Any who, if someone can let me know if it is a certain program that I have running, or if it looks to be a hardware issue, I would really appreciate it.

    Here is the report.

    In most cases kernel panics are the result of bad RAM. If just one memory module of a RAM stick is broken or has problems, then the system cant get data or write data, therefore it crashes. Kernel panics will most likely only occur if you open programs and stuff because thats when the RAM is being used. The reason you get kernel panics less frequently with automatic graphics switching disabled is because when its disabled only the GT 330M is being used which has its own memory. The Intel HD uses the system RAM (which probably has problems) so therefore the system again cant properly write to and read from the RAM, thus causing kernel panics.

    Try running the apple hardware test on one of the cd's that came with your MBP. if you dont know how: insert disk, startup holding the D key, then follow instructions. if the RAM is the problem then the test will most likely end when testing RAM, you then know something is wrong with it.

    If the RAM is the problem, you would need to exchange it, you cant repair it. either if you still have warranty get apple to do it for free, or if you dont have warranty buy new RAM. RAM is bloody cheap now, ~80 for 8GB, ~ 45 for 4GB.

    hope I could help
    peace :cool:
