    I've been having some issues with kernal panic's on one of my uMBP 17"...

    Opened the lid on 2 occasions, panic's and it has served me this message after force restart. Any ideas?

    Most of the time, kernel panics are caused by these things:http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/kernelpanics.html

    Defective or incompatible RAM are the most frequent causes of kernel panics. Despite being a highly-reliable product, RAM can fail. Modern operating systems, like Mac OS X, are sensitive to RAM. Purchase additional RAM from either Apple or third parties who guarantee their RAM is compatible with Mac OS X, offer a liberal exchange policy, and provide a lifetime warranty should the RAM become defective or a later version of Mac OS X introduce incompatibilities.
    Incompatible, obsolete, or corrupted kernel extensions. If a third-party kernel extension or one of its dependencies is incompatible or obsolete with respect to the version of Mac OS X you are using, kernel panics may occur when the kernel executes such extensions. Likewise, if a kernel extension or one of its dependencies is corrupted, such as the result of hard disk corruption, kernel panics are likely to occur when the kernel attempts to load or execute such.
    Incompatible, obsolete, or corrupted drivers. Similar to kernel extensions, drivers for third-party hardware which are incompatible with the version of Mac OS X you are using, or which have become corrupted, will cause in kernel panics.
    Hard disk corruption, including bad sectors, directory corruption, and other hard-disk ills.
    Incorrect permissions on System-related files or folders.
    Insufficient RAM and available hard disk space.
    Improperly installed hardware or software.
    Defective hardware or software. Hardware failures, including a defective CPU, or programming errors can result in kernel panics.
    Incompatible hardware. While rare, this is generally the result of a third-party hardware vendor’s product failing to properly respond to the kernel or a kernel extension in an expected way.

    Are these anythings that happened to you/you did?

    This computer is 3 weeks old and is as configured from Apple. No upgrades or modification have been done.

    I would take it to Apple and see what they say. Is this the first time you have seen this?

    Before taking it to Apple, I'd just do a reinstall of the OS and get that out of the way. You'll get a more quicker solution since Apple is going to perform one themselves anyway to rule out software.

    Already 00000000000'd it out!!! I have been through so many repairs on the previous computer (this is the replacement) and would hate to go through that hassle again!

    Does anything in that report point to a certain hardware issue?

    Thanks for the replys!
