    I've started getting regular and frequent kernal panics, 5-6/week, on my 1.83Gz C2D Macbook, which is now off Applecare. I don't have any experience reading these, and there doesn't seem to be a pattern- sometimes (like this one) I suspect it's Flash/firefox. Other times, nothing in particular is running, and I'm not even at the computer.

    Anyway, can anyone read this? And how can I diagnose errors? I can't run the Apple Hardware check, because my screen is dead and i use an external monitor, which won't run under the hardware check...

    First of all, Firefox can't cause a kernel panic. This specific log doesn't identify kernel loadable modules in the stack, so we can't easily identify a kernel extension as the culprit.

    You may not be able to run AHT, but you CAN run this:

    http://www.kelleycomputing.net/rember/

    It's best in single user mode, but since you probably can't do that, run it after a fresh reboot holding down the shift key during boot and login. Then, as few extensions and login items as possible will be running, giving as much RAM as possible to memtest.

    This will tell you whether it's one specific likely cause of kernel panics.

    Oh, and run it overnight. Look at the log in the morning.

    Do you have any external devices plugged in (like a camera)?
