HI, been having some problems recently with volume and was advised to reset the PRAM - just now i received a freeze and when hard re-starting, a kernel panic occurred. I want to know if resetting the PRAM will work with the apple wireless keyboard, just tried it but it dont seem like the computer takes the signal from the keyboard that early on startup?!?! and i didn't get a second bong...

    You will need to connect a USB keyboard to do a PRAM reset, what is occurring is the Bluetooth hasn't had an opportunity to boot when you are holding down the keys. Any USB keyboard would work if you happen to have a PC lying around try using that.

    Regards,

    If you get the second bong then you know your PRAM reset worked.
