Hello All,

 

I am experiencing a Kernal Panic problem out of nowhere.

The panic message comes up immediately when I turn the computer on and will not go past the message. It just gives my a panic code and then promps me to turn the computer off.

 

The computer will boot up fine in Safe Boot though. While in Safe Boot, I have repaired permissions in Disk Utility, as well as cancelled all programs that load at Boot Up.

 

My system is a Macbook Pro (Sandy Rose model) running Snow Leopard (OSX 10.6), In not running any 3rd party external connections. Only thing i have pluged to the MBP is the power cable.

 

I do have the log of the panic message/crash if anyone can decipher what it says and what I can do to resolve this it would be of great help!

 

Thanks:

    Kernel Panics are usually hardware related.  Boot up from the system disc that came with your computer and run the Hardware Test - Intel-based Macs: Using Apple Hardware Test.

     

    Read the solutions in the following articles - Kernel Panics? Don't panic too!

     

    "You need to restart your computer" (kernel panic) message appears (Mac OS X v10.5, 10.6)

     

    My system is a Macbook Pro (Sandy Rose model) running Snow Leopard (OSX 10.6)

    According to your system profile you are actually running Mac OS X (10.6.6).  In either case,  after you get your kernel panics resolved, you should use Software Update to update your os to 10.6.8 and anything else that needs to be updated.  It's possible your issues are hardware or software compatibility - needs to be updated.

    Thanks for the quick reply CMCSK,

    I was hoping that it was software that is causing the KP, but it looks like that's not the case. I don't have the disc that originally came with the Mac unfortunately.

     

    I've had previous problem before with the video card, its acually a recall on my particular model's GForce card that Apple fixed but the problem came back.

    Apple has a 90 day warranty on all repairs.  If you are having the exact same issue that was previously repaired by Apple AND have the repair paperwork or your case number, you should call Customer Relations and tell them your predicament.

     

     

    I don't have the disc that originally came with the Mac unfortunately.

     

     

    Why not?  You need them to troubleshoot.  Replacement System Discs can be obtained from Apple's Customer Support - US (800) 767-2775 for a nominal fee. You'll need to have the model and serial number of your Mac available.

     

    If you're not in the US, you may need to go through the regional Apple Store that serves your location to find the contact number - http://store.apple.com/Catalog/US/Images/intlstoreroutingpage.html

    I lost the disk over time..so I had to take it in to the Genius Bar. They did a hardware test and everything came back fine. Good news! So since I backed up the night before, they wiped my Mac clean and reinstalled Snow Leopard. I got home and restored from back up. Everything is working fine and I'm up and running.

     

    One thing I did notice though, is that Safari is not opening any secured https websites at all.
