    Hi everyone,
    starting today, i have repeatedly kernel panics on my new macbook pro 2.53 Ghz. I have some suspects, and hopefully hopefully somebody has a clue... I am desperate.

    1_Fonts: I have had several warnings that some fonts in suitcase are in a conflict with system fonts. i tried to change that, but i don't really know which fonts need to be where?

    2_Firefox add-ons: i downloaded several firefox add-ons a few days ago (themes), could they have caused the problem?

    3_Bluetooth Mouse: wireless mighty mouse... since I have it, I have had more problems than before

    4_Airport: I am in my schools library, and tried to manage my emails (LOTS of them) on my imap account via mail, while the airport connection was not very good... (oh, by the way, now all my mails have disappeared as well ... how can that happen? during synchroniziation and then having a kernel panic? i have now in total 42MB emails - used to be 412MB....)

    what can I do myself? and what will the apple people do?

    (and yes, of course I have 2 deadlines on monday and am crying out of frustration....)

    Perhaps your airport card needs reseating? Mine came a bit loose once and caused kernel panics until I pushed it back in.

    Bad RAM (or non-Apple RAM) is the #1 cause of kernel panics.

    Other than that, it's a hardware/software conflict that AppleCare should be able to take care of - either in a store or on the phone.

    That's interesting, since I've been having kernel panics this past week. Took my MBA to the Apple Store after it froze up abut (6)X in a row, while running PowerPoint on an overhead projector, youtube videos, and Safari. The Apple Tech said it wasn't a hardware issue, but the terminals definitely showed the kernel panics. I ended up doing a clean reinstall on my own at my house and the situation has not repeated. But this happens to be my two weeks of finals, and 80 percent of my finals are PowerPoint presentations, so I'm always on the edge of my seat, worrying about the next kernel panic...:eek::(

    Um, no. This one was definitely airport related.

    +1 That's what the Apple Store Tech had mentioned as well...

    airport - need to check it in the store?

    hi guys,
    do you think it could have been caused by the following situation:

    some problems with the servers at my school, while me sitting in the library trying to connect to the internet again and again - sometimes successful - and then moving large amounts of emails from my imap server to my local harddrive...?

    and do you think i need to check it in the store?
