    Hey guys,

    I don't understand why I keep getting Kernel Panics. I have replaced my RAM and HDD but the kernel panics started happening a few months before then. I then took my MacBook Pro to the Apple store and they kept it overnight. 3 days later I go to pick it up and they tell me they couldn't find anything wrong software or hardware wise. Their advice was to do a total clean install. So about a month later I did a total clean install, manually putting my stuff back on..not using time machine or migration assistant. I was going well until I just got ANOTHER kernel panic. I really thought doing the clean install would fix it. My mac has been running faster and less buggy after the clean install.

    Whats your advice? Do you think the kernel panics will stop when I upgrade to the Mac OS X Lion? Like I said before, the kernel panics happened BEFORE I opened up my computer and upgraded the RAM and HDD, so putting the original parts back in I don't think will fix anything. Plus, after upgrading to 8GB of RAM, I don't think I can go back to 4GB...it wouldn't be the same.

    Here are the specs of my MBP by the way..if it helps.

    2.4Ghz Mid 2010 MacBook Pro 15 inch

    Also, the kernel panics usually occur randomly at least once every 7 or so days. Every time it happens I'm usually running: safari, mail, adium, activity monitor, skype, echofon, and the drobo app.

    Thanks for the help!

    Take that back to Apple. Keep complaining until they fix or replace.

    Kernel panics are caused by hardware issues, as I understand it. Keep hassling Apple while your machine is under warranty. You should not have to deal with this on your own.

    P.S. if you still have the original HD and RAM, it might be to your benefit to put them back in before taking it to Apple. They gave my friend a hard time just because he didn't have the stock HD.

    How do I post the error? Is it the thing that comes up after I do the hard restart?

    I still have the original HDD and RAM. The only problem is that I put my old HDD in my sisters Mac. I put my MBP on craigslist just for the heck of it and I got "real" offers as high as 1500 bucks. I bought it for 1788 so 200ish dollar difference is pretty good considering the laptop is 8 months old. It may just be easier to sell it and purchase the next generation of the MBP's possibly?

    You could always do your best to get it fixed, then sell it if you still want to. Bottom line is that your machine obviously has a problem. Kernel panics should never happen on a healthy machine.

    The only time I've experienced a kernel panic on one of my macs, it was a bad network card. That's just one example of possible causes. As far as I know, though, it's always a hardware issue that needs attention.

    Personally, I wouldn't feel right selling a defective machine. At least not without full disclosure. There's no reason why you shouldn't be beating down the door at your local Apple store, demanding that this be fixed. If you're not getting good service at your nearest store, find the next nearest one. Sometimes the right people make all the difference.

    Considering its 8 months old and I didn't purchase Apple care for it yet. Do you think the chances of me being able to get a new unit is good? The condition of it is great..looks brand new. Do you recommend me calling Apple first or taking it to a different store? The place I took it usually gives great service. On my previous MacBook it had a dead pixel when I bought it and 30 days after buying it they still gave me a new unit. But yeah, so basically I should go in demanding a new unit because the computer is faulty?

    They vibe they gave me was that if they couldn't find a problem with their "tests" nothing was wrong.

    Kernel Panics

    Just thought I would add my experiences with kernel panics. While I agree that hardware generally causes this issue, it is not the only reason. When I bought my latest MacBookPro, I experienced a kernel panic after using the migration assistant. It was persistent. I tried every trick in the book including, repairing permissions, reset PRAM and even reinstalling the OS. Nothing worked. I didn't want to go to the Apple Store because I despise working with the so-called Geniuses. So the only way I could eliminate the kernel panic was to boot from the install disk, completely erase the hard drive, reformat the hard drive and then reinstall everything. My machine works perfectly now and I haven't had a single kernel panic since. I know this procedure is a nightmare but it beats returning the machine and waiting for a new one.

    The error that is displayed after the hard restart is a file located under Library/Logs/CrashReporter, there will be files named after your machine. If you can attach one, or pm it, I'll have a look.

    Are you running a 32but kernel, or 64? I've a 2010 MBP that kernel panics when I'm running a 64bit kernel, and I'm tethered to my iPhone via USB ( just a thought, do you experience panics when the Drobo dashboard isn't running? ). If I tether via Bluetooth or boot with a 32bit kernel, everything is fine.

    Kernel panics are not always hardware related.

    That's a cool tip I never knew about. Anywho, after doing the clean install, this was the first kernel panic that I've had, so I figure the past kernel panics were all erased in the log. The kernel panic that happened today should technically be in the folder but when restarting, the blue screen stayed up for over 2 minutes, usually it doesn't last that long. So I did another hard restart on top of the first hard restart which is why I'm guessing the kernel panic isn't logged. I don't see any crashes for today's date. All the other crashes logged aren't kernel panic related.

    I'm sure the Drobo has nothing to do with it. I just bought the Drobo for Christmas. These kernel panics have been happening months and months before I ever had a drobo

    Hmmm, that's a shame. Did you have anything attached to your MBP? Was the Drobo app running? Something else, do you have any VM software installed? I had a BlackBook many moons ago with VMware installed, that would panic when the screen saver kicked in. Turned out the video driver did odd things with the VMware kernel extensions loaded.....

    Yep, the drobo app is always running on my computer ever since I bought it..at least when its connected. I did have VMware on my mac before the clean install but it was torrented and I didn't feel like putting it back on my mac after the clean install since i wanted to limit the amount of pirated software on it since that could of been causing the problem. Now I have nothing but legit software on my mac and I still got the kernel panic :(

    if I get another kernel panic I'll make sure to post the log.

    Just wanted to let you know that since my last message to you, I've had another kernel panic. When I did the hard restart the "report issue to apple" thing came up and I viewed the log and I saw it say something about "safari" I don't really know how to read a kernel panic log so I'm not sure what to say about it. I checked the log folder and It still didn't place the log there. I'm pretty confused. Next time it happens I'll be sure to copy and paste the log

    Well, all I know is that their tests aren't infallible. As some above posters mentioned, it is true that kernel panics are not always due to hardware. In your case, however, with a clean installation, and no peripherals, there's a strong probability that your mac has a hardware glitch.

    My friend's MacBook kept having a glitch that was unpredictable and difficult to repeat. The Geniuses kept telling him that nothing showed up on the tests. They even kept it overnight to run stress tests. Well, he kept bringing it in with the same problem until, finally, they basically refurbished the machine with a new logic board, etc. He hasn't had the glitch occur since.

    I'm just saying that sometimes you have to be persistent. With your efforts at doing a clean install, I feel that you've proven the issue is not caused by anything you've done. At this point, it seems it's time for Apple to take care of it.

    Alrighty. And I don't remember if it was you or someone else who said that I should probably put back the stock parts before taking it back to Apple but I think I may do that. I'm 100% sure that the problems have been happening before even replacing one thing in my MacBook Pro but I'm not sure if they believe it. Plus, can't their tests detect if it was actually hardware related? They also kept my MacBook overnight for 3 days and said they couldn't find anything wrong. I think I want to keep everything inside it for now and make sure they see the logs (all 2 of them..and that they happened within hours of each other)

    Like I said, the tests are not perfect; they cannot show every little, possible hardware glitch. Also, glitches have a funny way of hiding themselves when the technician is looking.

    Yes, I'm the one who advised you to put the stock parts back in. It's a silly thing, since most of the time the aftermarket parts are superior to what Apple stocks. They gave my friend a hard time because his drive wasn't stock. Even though every kind of possible test was run on the drive, and it showed not one bad sector, it was tainted in the eyes of the Apple people. :rolleyes:

    Wow, I really wish I knew all this stuff before I did that clean install. I wish I knew how to check the logs before today. I could of looked at every single kernel panic and would of been able to tell for sure when they happened. I only have two panics in the log. Anywho, thanks so much for the help! I feel like I'm better prepared to duke this out with Apple before the 1 year limited warranty goes out.

    What are the chances! I just got ANOTHER kernel panic when I was trying to reply to your msg. I was going to say that I did import my safari bookmarks to the new safari after doing the clean install. Wasn't sure if that could of caused it. So now 3 kernel panics within 2 days. For sure I've never had them happen this much.

    I've just installed the stock ram on my mac and I'll be using it all day tomorrow to see if I get anymore kernel panics with the stock ram. If so, that pretty much confirms my case to the apple store.

    I've heard of a lot of problems like this from these boards, friends,classmates, and colleagues. And they say macs are more reliable :rolleyes:

    Well, I still would say that I was left in way more headaches with my previous Dell.
