Hi there. I'm on a late 2008 unibody macbook pro, running up-to-date snow leopard (10.6.8) and everything has been perfect until the last couple of days. Suddenly, there's two problems, that I assume are in fact the same issue, but I haven't found a solution to either one.

 

First noticed that my bootcamp install of windows 8 was flickering after a short period running without fault for about 10-15 seconds and then freezing, requiring a hard restard. Then, returning to my mac partition I discovered this kernel panic issue that occurs almost every time I attempt to restart or shut down (apple, restart, pop-up for confirmation, kernel panic before I can confirm). I have attached the first log I saved, and my most recent log below this explanation (in fact each log is different from the last).

 

Having searched the resources here and elsewhere, I ran disk utility and attempted to verify the disk. The results showed an error: Invalid directory item count so I backed up my data and followed instructions to repair the disk. My optical drive has been unresponsive for a long time and I followed the fsck method. Running once repaired the issue, running twice confirmed the repair. For good measure I also restarted in safe mode and reset PRAM and SMC. Following other advice found online, I removed instances of files mentioned in each panic log (peer guardian, little snitch varaAudio) but this has not changed anything, simply removed them from subsequent logs.

 

At which point, attempting to boot into windows, I am greeted by a black screen (note, no cursor) and little else. From the mac partition, I still have access to the data on the windows side and I think, but am not certain (I'm listening for harddrive activity) that I have been able to log into the windows partition with a blank screen by being patient, hitting escape, typing my password and hitting enter.

 

Finally, because I am not running the original version of OSX installed on this computer, apparently I cannot run a hardware test without my original installation disk by holding D on startup.

 

As both issues presented effectively simultaneously, I presume the problem with windows will be resolved with the problem with kernel panics. Aside from the one instance of kernel panics, my mac paritition is working perfectly, but obvously I would like this issue resolved. Any suggestion of a next attempt? I wont be in contact with an english speaking apple store for some weeks and it would be great to find a fix in the mean time.

    samids Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Just wanted to update in case someone had the same issue.

     

    Took the laptop into an apple store recently. Counter genius ran the general hardware diagnostic, concluded that it was an hardware issue: gpu/logic board related. Took it in for service but then concluded that it was a hard drive issue. Replaced hard drive. Realised the issue was still extant. Realised that it was a gpu/logic board issue. Returned old hard drive. Realised the price of a new logic board was more than the value of the computer itself. Returned computer without any hardware repairs.

     

    So the issue remains, and will remain for the foreseeable future. Obviously it's not a common problem, however the confusion in hardware support and the fact that I had to 'insist' to keep my old hard drive after it was replaced makes me worry for my future mac purchases and replacement of my current machine...not the best experience.
