I have been reading throught the community support pages over the last couple of days, but nothing seems to be helping. 2 days ago I uninstalled my microsoft wireless mouse driver as I was using USB overdrive to manage my new Trust MaxTrack wireless mouse (it has extra buttons but comes with no drivers, I checked with manufacturer) Very shortly afterwards I had my first ever kernelpanic (had the Macbook since mid 2009). This kept happening so I tried restoring the entire system via time machine. I realise this was probably overkill but wanted to be sure that the system (which was working fine at my last backup) would be in working order. Then timemachine crashed part way through and I started to freak out, luckily my girlfriend is something of a Mac expert, so she took the reigns (luckily before i tried to system restore i booted in safemode and backed up my precious data), she ran a full apple hardware test, everything was fine, she ran techtool pro tests and all was fine and she did a full re-install of mountain lion (which I have wanted to do for a while now, a bit of a spring clean so to speak - maybe a hangover from my old pc user days!). I have been slowly reinstalling all my applications. Everything seemed to be okay, but a couple of times now it has kernel panic'd (both times while playing Team Fortress 2 on Steam). I have been playing the game for over a year now and no updates have been made that would co-incide with his error. If my memory serves me correctly I think each time the panic happened I was using the Trust mouse but am not 100% certain, could a mouse cause a Kernel Panic? from what I have read on the internet it may well do. I have looked up the panic log but cannot make head nor tail of it. I was hoping some kindly folk here may be able to help me out.

    Any or all of the following third-party system modifications may be contributing to your problem:


    M-Audio driver

    PACE Interlok driver

    Microsoft Keyboard driver


    If the panic is recurrent, I suggest you uninstall them, one at a time, according to the developers' instructions, to see whether you can identify which one is at fault. A conflict between modifications may be involved. Reboot and test after each uninstallation.


    Back up all data before making any changes.

    Please post the rest of the panic report.

    You still haven't posted the relevant part, which is the list of loaded extensions. The question is whether you've removed the third-party modifications.

    If you haven't already done so, test with all wired peripherals disconnected.

    It's a hardware fault, probably bad RAM.


    Make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store to have the machine tested. You may have to leave it there for several days.

    Print the first page of the panic report and bring it with you.

    Back up all data on the internal drive(s) before you hand over your computer to anyone. If privacy is a concern, erase the data partition(s) with the option to write zeros* (do this only if you have at least two complete, independent backups, and you know how to restore to an empty drive from any of them.) Don’t erase the recovery partition, if present.

    Keeping your confidential data secure during hardware repair

    *An SSD doesn't need to be zeroed.
