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!
