    I just got a refurbished MacBook Pro from Apple about a week ago. A couple of days ago it started to have kernel panics. It had one, I thought, no big deal, it just happened. Then it kept happening, so I re-installed Leopard, and when I went to re-install it the first time it had a kernel panic at the beginning of the installation process. Eventually, on the second try, I got it to re-install. Since then, it hasn't had as many, but it's still having them from time to time. This is pretty annoying, because I'll just using Safari and it'll happen. Is this fixable? Is it a firmware issue? What do I do?

    posting your crash report would help.

    and by any chance do you have logitech drivers installed?
    they are known to cause random kernel panics.

    Thanks for your reply,

    I don't have a report handy, but I'll be sure to post one next time. I don't have any Logitech drivers installed, but I did install a driver for my M-Audio keyboard that was made by someone on the Apple forums. That may have been causing it, but I uninstalled that, and re-installed Leopard. hmm...

    Very probably a hardware fault, either RAM or motherboard. Since this Mac is under warranty, I'd send it back to Apple for repair.

    Lesson No. 1: Do not attempt reinstalls of OSX to cure kernel panics. This almost never helps, and can easily make the situation worse.
