MacBook Pro :: Several Kernel Crashes - Reinstalled Lion Again

Jun 8, 2012

The crashes keep on coming, so I bought Mackeeper and it told me that my system was clean but it still crashes. Most of the crashes happen while on the internet either watching "blink box" or shifting between sites. Mackeeper automatically checks my internet security and I am at a loss at to what is causing it. It is always a kernel (panic attack) and the screen always goes gray as the line comes down. Does anyone know what is happening.

OS X :: Kernel Panics And Random Crashes On 09 Macbook Pro?

Nov 13, 2009

I got a new macbook pro a week ago. The first time I shut the machine down it experienced a kernel panic right after I selected to shut down the computer. Programs randomly crash while I am using the computer. The apple store said that crashes are most likely due to CS3 because it was not properly updated for the system, so they installed the CS3 updates. The next time I used the machine after installing CS3 updates, it experienced another kernel panic upon shut down. I would like to hear about known issues with the Summer 09 macbooks. I am trying to determine if this is a hardware, software, or an OS issue.

MacBook Pro :: Kernel Panic Crashes Often When A Lot Of Processing Is Going On

Jun 1, 2014

My MacBook Pro has crashed many times over the past month. It seems to happen when a lot of processing is going on. It happens when I have nothing external connected. It happens when different software is running. The easiest way for me to make it happen is to have multiple apps running, especially with some videos. It doesn't seem to matter which software is runing. 

In 2012, I installed some 3rd-party RAM (Corsair 2x4GB). Everything has pretty much worked fine until now. 

I have already reset the SMC. 

Instead of installing OSX on an external drive, booting from that, and trying to make it crash, I'm thinking it might be easier to:Remove a stick of RAM and try to make it crash. If it does, switch it with the other stick and try to make it crash.

If it still crashes, then I guess I would make an image of my system drive, reinstall OSX and copy the image over (I'm not 100% how to do that exactly - I know how to get all my documents back, but I'm afraid I'd break a connection necessary for some programs [like Pro Tools] to work.)

MacBook Air :: MacBook Air Kernel Panic And Application Crashes?

Nov 19, 2010

I just wanted to share my experiences with my new MacBook Air 13" (2010) 1.86 GHz, 4GB memory, 128GB flash storage. I got my machine a week ago. Booted it up and installed all the Apple updates.

I then synced all my MobileMe stuff, and installed Evernote, Chrome, TextMate and the Flash plug-in. Everything worked flawlessly for 5 days and then I had a kernel panic a couple of minutes after waking from sleep. I got the message that told me to hold the power button to force a restart.

After that I got consistent error messages and program crashes when waking from sleep or when quitting applications - iTunes,, Flash plug-in, Evernote, and Safari all seemed affected. Even creating a new user account yielded the same results. Tried repairing permissions, resetting SMC, and PRAM but no change.

I reinstalled the OS last night and so far I haven't had any problems. Ran memory tests, CPU load test, and GPU load tests and nothing seems to force an error. So, I current thinking is that the originally installed OS had some installation issues from the factory or I have an elusive hardware issue.

If anyone has any experience or thoughts, I'd love to hear them. That said, I figured I'd share in case anyone else was having similar issues.

OS X Mavericks :: Keep Getting Kernel Panic Crashes

Dec 6, 2014

start getting kernel panel in mavericks quite a few months agoended up taking to apple...diagnosed as hard drive issue, replaced hard-driveafter hard drive replaced, still getting kernel panics (various things including chrome)format and reinstall OS (Mavericks)took back to apple service provided, replaced hard-drive again.Upgraded to Yosemite however in mid 2010 iMac it really slowed things down. Had to take out third party ram because kept result in crashes that quickly lead to damaged sections on hard-drive so had to reintall OS. Only had 4Gb of original apple ram.due to sluggy performance of yosmite, recently (today) "downgraded" to mavericks.Install third party ram back into computer (now have 12 Gb)Experienced 2 kernal panics already. Can't work out what the issues is 

This is pretty bare bones. Not much intsalled since "downgraded"to Mavericks. Log below

PowerPC :: Powerbook G4 - Kernel Errors And Random Crashes

Jun 15, 2010

I have a 15" PB Aluminum 1.5ghz with 1GB of ram. Just bought off a friend and when I did a fresh erase and install of OS X 10.4, repaired permissions and rebooted I get the kernel error telling me to hold down the power button and restart. So I did this and when it restarts I get the grey apple background with a load of writing all over it. How do I try and figure out what is causing the problem. I also ran tech tool pro from the DVD and that says everything has passed such as processor, memory etc

Intel Mac :: Kernel Panics, Crashes And Automatic Log-offs?

Mar 25, 2012

In the last 2-3 weeks, for lack of a better phrase, my iMac has gone to ****. I get several kernel panics a day, apps crash all the time (Chrome, VLC, Quicktime, MS Word, etc.) and about a dozen times a day I am logged out of my user account with no warning. I have tried everything I can think of. I repaired permissions, I checked my disk, I disabled flash in Chrome, I uninstalled a lot of unnecessary apps and plugins. Nothing has helped. Could this be a Chrome issue? I've heard kernel panics aren't generally related to apps but it's the only program I've been consistently using during each panic/crash/log off (however, this could just be coincidence as I always have my browser open). I'm on Snow Leopard (10.6.8). Would upgrading to Lion potentially fix this? Should I reinstall the OS and start from scratch (which I would rather not have to do, as I have 500 GB of files & this would be time consuming)? This is my first Mac & while I'm generally a pretty tech savvy person, all my experience with fixing computer issues is on PCs. 

Here is my last kernel panic report:

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Reinstalled IWork 08 - .pages Docs Don't Show

May 14, 2012

Having just moved from Snow Leopard to Lion, i reinstalled iWork 08 and tried to carry on work..... . But after the reinstalls, the text in ALL .pages documents doesn't show anymore. I can highlight it and I can see it - but no amount of fiddling with text colour or background colour does the trick. Funnily enough, I can print the documents without any problems.

ITunes :: Reinstalled Lion - Can't Sync Purchased Shows To IPad

Jul 1, 2012

I've been having issues with Lion locking up ever since it was released, so I finally got around to reinstalling it. Now when I try to sync purchased TV shows to my iPad it tells my it can not sync because my computer is not authorized for the content. Oddly I am able to sync *some* content purchased from the iTunes store. 

I have tried authorizing my computer as suggested in the error message to no avail. I also tried deauthorizing it and reauthorizing it but that also was of no help.

MacBook Pro :: Snow Leopard Has A 32bit Kernel As The Default Like 64bit Kernel?

Aug 13, 2009

Yes you read that right. Your brand spanking new MBP will use a 32-bit kernel as default.

You can force 64-bit kernel but some of your hardware will not be working.

So all that marketing crap about the benefits of 64-bit etc are all B.S.

I don't want a million threads about how this will not effect the running of 64 bit apps, etc. because it will. Your 64-bit app will run but it will not be able to address more than 4Gb of RAM.

There are also many more advantages to having a 64-bit kernel.

MacBook Pro :: Reinstalled Snow Leopard And Now Locked Out

Sep 12, 2010

MBP 2006 2.0 with SL 10.6 started acting goofy over the weekend, so I C booted SL install disc and reinstalled. Machine now runs fine and all my stuff is still here, but I am no longer an Administrator and can't get it to boot from C drive or let me into Restart/SL, as I'm not an administrator. So I can't use the disc drive or change anything.

I'm the original/only owner and have never entered an Administrator password anywhere, just my login as a user. Is there a way to get it to allow the disc in so I can clear up the passwords?

MacBook Air :: Cannot Open Safari - Needed To Be Reinstalled

Apr 19, 2012

Safari suddenly stopped working today and would only give me an error message saying that it could not be opened because of a problem, and that it needed to be reinstalled. I tried reinstalling OS X Lion, with the built in Lion recovery in the macbook air, but it is still not working. Based on reading other discussion I'm thinking that it might be malware, but the error message they are reporting is not similar to the one I am getting now. Stupidly I didn't check it properly, so I don't know what the error message was before I resinstalled OS, but now it reads:

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Recurring Kernel Panic On MacBook Pro

Apr 13, 2012

This issue just started a couple of days ago. I noticed something weird happening when I watching a YouTube video - the video stopped playing but the sound kept on going like nothing was wrong. Anyway I ran the Apple Hardware Test yet it detected no problems. I even went through the extended test just to make sure. I originally got this machine as Snow Leopard but upgrading to Lion.

Basically what happens is the whole screen freezes and i reboot and I am able to go about its business until the next freeze. The times that I have came back into the room to see it froze up was when the screensaver had turned on or when I was playing any kind of game it seems like it had frozen up(one time playing a game in VMWARE (windows xp). I dont know if this could be a GPU issue or not.

MacBook :: Can't Install Essential Updates On Reinstalled Os X Leopard

May 1, 2012

I have a 2008 5th generation black macbook. It's a good 4 years old, so I figured I'd wipe my computer all together and reinstall os x. Once I did, everything is working fine until I do the software updates. Safari even looks like it's from 2008 lol. The issue is, it downloads the updates fine, but once it restarts and begins the actual install, it gets to the point where it's "Configuring update" and completely stops in it's tracks. I've tried letting it do its thing and walked away, because maybe it would actually take a while but no, the blue progress bar is in the same exact point. So I'm stuck with leopard 10.5.2

MacBook Pro :: Finder Crashes Continuously (OS X Lion 10.7.3)

Apr 14, 2012

When running a lot of different applications (OpenOffice, R64, Microsoft Office, iTunes, etc.) on my MacBook Pro (2.2 GHz Core i7, 8 GB RAM), Finder freezes continuously. Most of the time it'll restart quickly, or in the best cases, it will eventually start working again after a few minutes. This is extremely annoying as I use my computer for work and constantly have to wait in order to access files. I've tried deleting hidden files in directories among other things, but nothing seems to do wonder.

MacBook Pro :: Lion 10.7.4 Flash Plugin Crashes?

Since doing this my Flash plugin crashes on both Safari and Firefox so I can't even load Youtube videos.  I've got the most updated version of Firefox and Flash player, and after looking through forums have tried rebooting my Macbook several times. Each time I reboot Youtube videos load a little bit more without crashing, but I havn't got more than 5 seconds into a video yet.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: 2012 Macbook Pro Crashes And Reboots Randomly?

Jun 21, 2012

I just bought my new 2012 macbook pro a couple weeks ago, and so far it has crashed and rebooted by itself four times. Three of those four times, I had only been running  a couple programs, such as Chrome and Mail, while all others were closed. the entire computer will freeze for about 6-7 seconds (no response to mouse movement/keyboard) and then shut down and reboot.  

Is this a bug with OS X Lion? or the new macbook Pro? or my macbook pro specifically indicating there's some sort of defect?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: My Apple Macbook Pro (Mid 2010) Crashes Multiple Times A Day

Jun 8, 2012

My Apple MBP keeps crashing on me multiple times a day. It used to be rare, now it is so frequent, it is easily reproducable. I have tried the Disk Utility and  shift+ctrl+option+power btn to reset some unit. but it is not working. Is there a Mac guru that can go through the log and let me know what's wrong? I can't believe Apple makes such crappy products. I fell in love with Apple a couple of years ago and have ended up buying many Apple products, now I have started to hate my MBP I got for almost 3 grand just 2 years ago.  May be this is the beginning of the end for Apple, the QA is doing nothing.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Kernel Panics In 10.7.4

May 10, 2012

I kid you not,  ever since I updated 10.7.4 last night, I've had at least 3 kernel panics, plus it wouldn't wake up from sleep. 

Sometimes it seems to crash for no reason at all -- the computer will just be sitting there and I won't be doing anything; granted, I'm sure a skillion processes are running, but no more than I would usually run. 

Where are the pertinent logs hiding so I can share them with some wise soul?
