    Hi, I'm quite new to both Mac and Macrumors. I tried to find a solution here before posting, but I didn't find any.
    I have the latest MBP with the latest Mac OS X (all updates installed). I switched it off yesterday and after turning it on today, a message comes up: "You need to restart your computer...". After turning it on/off, it's still the same. I booted from DVD and run Repair permissions and Repair disk utilities and it did not help. I will be mostly grateful for any help as I don't have any backup yet and need the machine up and running. As I said, I'm quite new to the Macs, so please provide specific step-by-step suggestions.
    Thanks!

    That is definetly a kernel panic... I would say be safe and take it straight to the genius bar at your local Apple Store. I would usually play around with it if it was a regular old kernel panic, but sounds like you're getting one everytime you turn the thing on.

    So, take it to the genius bar.

    Thanks

    I'm from the Czech Republic - no Apple Store/Genius bar here... Is there anything else I can try before taking it to an unofficial service place?
    (Btw. I have nothing like BootCamp, Parallels etc. installed - no Windows crap on my MBP, asi it seems to be the problem in some similar cases here in the forum.)

    Try giving Apple a call since you have no stores nearby?

    Solved

    Problem solved. It was caused by RAM - I bought new RAMs and it's OK...
