    My Mac Mini kernel panicked today and now it won't boot past a white screen. I've never had any problems and can't figure out why it's doing this. It's the 2Ghz Core 2 Duo model.

    What seems to be the problem here? Is my mini shot?

    I can't do any disk checks or reset anything because it wont go past the white screen. I've never seen anything like this before.

    Tried every step and still stuck at the white screen of death.

    Can't get to the boot menu to select another hard drive either.

    Time for serious diagnostics. Sounds like it may be a hardware issue. It's too hard to tell what it could be without being there and seeing the computer. You car try testing the RAM and seeing if its bad RAM, but it could be so many things at this point.

    It may just be time to take it in for service somewhere.

    Tried the ram and it still has no luck. Guess I'll try and sell it for parts and upgrade to something bigger and better.
