    Hello. I've recently upgraded to SL on my MBP (clean install) about a month ago. It's been working flawlessly until this week, where at random times, my computer freezes up and the screen starts to flicker. When I try to restart, I get the screen that says I need to restart (kernel panic screen). Sometimes it takes multiple (as in 5 or 6) tries of restarting before I can boot up. I've tried software update, repairing permissions, resetting PRAM, etc. and nothing has seemed to work. Does anyone have any other possible solutions for me to try or any insight? Any help would be appreciated as I am a student and need my computer to be working. Thanks. Here is the log:

    The recent upgrade to SL will likely have a lot of folks here insisting it's the new OS. Certainly, the timing is suspect, but the screen flicker makes me think it's a hardware problem, and the upgrade is a coincidence.

    Either way, it might make sense for you to check your RAM with Rember. Doesn't hurt and it's free.

    Also, when you repaired permission, did Disk Utility give you any messages on the status of the hard drive?

    Also, check your system logs with Console to see what kinds of messages are getting reported just prior to the kernel panics.

    Yeah I would say it's either the RAM or the Nvidia 8600 video card that has been known to crap out on many MBPs. I would make an appointment at an Apple Store for a "Genius" to check it out for you.
