    Hi all guys! I'm new here and I'm new in Mac world also.

    I just bought my MacBook Pro 15,4" 2 month ago, and 4 days ago it's started to give me a lot of problems. The first day it's freezed with Google Chrome, but then it's randomly freezing when I use Skype or try to watch some movie in VCL... I can't update it and restart good, always I see this problem:

    "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button for several seconds or press the Restart button."

    I bought it in Spain, but now I'm studying in Norway, I saw in apple oficial webpage that I have support warrantie until June 2011. Can I bring it to the apple store? And there fix the problem? Or I'll have to pay?

    What I have to do? I'm waiting my dvd's which come with my MacBook Pro, I forgot it in Spain, but i hope they'll arrive next week.

    It's problem with software or hardware?

    Thank you very much!

    You are still within the warrenty time period so of course you can go to an Apple store and have them look at it. If you get your Mac OS Install DVDs you should try to reinstall the system, followed by running Software Update from the System Preferences pane if it boots up after reinstalling the OS. In which case the source of the issue was probably software. All to often kernal panics are hardware related, and taking the computer to have Apple look at it is the fastest way to check that out. If you explain about waiting for your disks, they may install the system for you. Make an appointment with a genius before you go in.

    Seems like it might have to do with your graphics card, and may be related to changing resolutions?

    I'm not a techie but I think what you can do now is to repair disk permission then reset PRAM and VRAM. It's like a first aid for any weird symptom including kernel panic. From my experience, those procedures completely fixed kernel panic issue that I had with my iMac (>5 panics/day) a while ago. It's also easier than reinstall the OS. If the symptom persists, then it's time to bring your MBP to an Apple store. Good luck.

    I cant tell exactly what the issue is but it's 100% graphics related based on that panic log.

    I had the same kernal panics with a 3 month old i5 17", the Genius diagnosed it with a faulty logic board, and they offered me a new computer.

    thank you guys! I tried to repair disc permissions and reset PRAM, but still the same problem. Tomorrow I'll bring it to apple store here, hope they'll help me there.

    Hold down D at boot and run the Apple hardware test, if you get an error there then it's definitely HW related.

    see if you can boot into Safe Mode first. Thill determine if its a 3rd party SW issue or kext issues. Hold down shift while booting up.

    If your laptop is really brand new and it's having kernel panics, then don't even waste any time trying to fix it yourself, it is almost definitely a hardware problem that apple will have to fix.

    I just test twice my hardware with DVD and I have bad news and next alert:

    "Alert! Apple hardware test detected error: 4VDC /1/ 40000003: Video controller"
