    A friend's MacPro started to display a kernel panic. So, we decided to erase the data to zero and reinstall Leopard.

    Computer Specs:
    MacPro 3,1
    2 x 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
    4GB 800MHz DDR2 FB-Dimm

    Everything went fine, computer started up and I started to install the 10.5.6 combo update. It was in the middle of the installation when a kernel panic appeared, leaving the computer unable to work (could't pass blue screen). So I had to do all over again. This time, I decided no to install 10.5.6.

    When I was setting the computer up and, boom! another kernel panic. Restarted, finished the setup and started to install some programs and another kernel panics comes to screen.

    Here are these last two logs. I hope you can help me.

    In my imagination
    From my recent experience, and the advice of others that will chime in soon or before me, KPs are always a hardware issue.

    Try removing any recently added hardware such as HDDs, RAM, ODD, etc and try again.

    Remove all but the base amount of RAM and test them in pairs even. If your KPs persist then it may be something deeper down like the logic board, but let's hope not.

    Looks like bad memory. From the second log:

    KP again

    Ok, today the machine crashed again. Looked at the log and it says "Uncorrectable Fbd memory error detected", just as the second log. I removed the extra 2GB Ram memory as suggested.

    Now, let's just wait and see what happens.

    Uh Oh! Time to get that logic board replaced.

    If that's the case, we're still within warranty period. :(

    Kernel Panic, some help for what causes it would be appreciated

    Hi guys,

    Sorry to bring this issue back but I have a similar problem with you, however after calling twice Apple i couldn t get any specific answer to what is happening to my mini mac. Here is a briefing of what happened...

    I bought the mini with Tiger just before Leopard was released. It had 1gb of RAM but on the spot I asked them to upgrade it with 1 more so in total I have 2 gb now. Then I bought from apple Leopard a few days later and did and upgrade. The mac mini was working fine for almost a year but recently it started to crash with the screen going grey and a message saying "you need to restart your computer by holding down the switch on button" in several languages. This is a kernel panic as far as I know.

    I decided to go for an archive and install of Leopard but the problem persisted. I then did a clean install (Leopard) but after a few days -and after installing all the programmes I had before- the same again with kernel panics. I run the hardware test -the short one/2mins- and everything appeared to be fine. I cleaned the cache and cookies with Onyx and still nothing. I run a software called preferential treatment and checked for system preferences problems. It found some and i deleted them. Of course I run disk utility and repaired permissions several times but again nothing. A guy from Apple told me to re-install Tiger and then upgrade to Leopard but I haven t done that.

    It looks like that the Mac mini crashes when 5-7 applications are running. I used to work with many applications open but I never had this problem. Can it be a hardware problem?

    The kernel panic report is as follows. Any help would be appreciated.

    A lot of the time these are caused by memory errors, and since it appears to happen when your memory gets full, I would guess that's what you have here.
