    Hi there..

    I am experiencing serious problems with my MBP late 2008. Since my installation of Lion, I've been getting these Kernel Panics that immobilizes my screen and forces a restart. I am no expert, frankly I know very little of computer software/hardware, but I know that this is wrong.

    I have the following specs:

    Processor 2,4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.1 (11B26)
    Memory 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3

    I have recently swapped out my original 2 GB ram and replaced it with those above. (A good friend of mine advised those to me - he is into mac hardware, and not software) - not sure if I had errors before I switched!

    I have nothing much else than "must-have" programs, like: Office, iTunes, League of Legends, Transmission and that is basically it. I am sort of unsure of what to include here, but I am doing my best.

    I have copied the following errors, if it can tell you guys just anything:

    Interval Since Last Panic Report: 70696 sec
    Panics Since Last Report: 7

    Have you tried running "verify"? If that turns up no problems, then "Repair" isn't necessary. If it does, then you need to boot from either the disc that came with the computer, or the Lion recovery partition, from which you can run Disk Utility and repair the startup drive.

    In more general terms, find the disc that came with your MBP and boot into Apple Hardware Test on it (hold down the D key when starting up the computer with the disc inserted), run the long test, and see if it turns up any errors. A clean bill of health from this doesn't guarantee it's not a hardware problem, but it's one easy way to test for obvious hardware issues, and if it is indeed bad RAM this might show it.
