OS X V10.7 Lion :: Frequent Kernel Panics Seem To Happen Primarily When Using Adobe Premiere Pro
May 28, 2012
I seem to be having constant kernel panics when using my 2011 iMac (OS X 10.7.4), they seem to happen primarily when using Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and happen from about 5 minutes of using the program to about 30. Even if I am not using adobe though the kernel panic still happens after about 30 minutes. I uninstalled Adobe and all seemed fine, so I attempted to reinstall it, but part way through the process it kernel panic's again. I was wondering if it could be when I am doing stuff on system intensive programs, so I tried running a game of Civ V, and that didn't seem to have any problems.
I've been having repeated kernel panics for a little over a week now. I've run disk utility, tech tools, the disk utility on the installation disk, remember ram test, installed a virus checker, reinstalled (archive/install) mac os x. I am not receiving any errors in the tests, but I am still having kernel panics. They always happen when I am on the internet, not immediately, but I'd say about 20 minutes or so into a session. I first started having the panics when I clicked on a link from someone's facebook page and a kernel panic immediately popped onto my screen. I've been having them ever since.

I'm using my G5 for both personal use and work so it's on all the time. It has worked flawless with this same hardware config for almost 2 years, but for the past week or so I've had about 4 to 5 kernel panics or complete system freeze a day. This happens when doing web browsing, Final Cut Pro editing, playing a game etc, so basically I can't pinpoint it to a specific application, or to a piece of hardware I've added. I have ran REMBER to test my ram and all seems fine.
As the topic suggests I keep getting kernel panics when playing games on the 9600 m GT (it never happens on the 9400 m). I never have kernel panics when playing left 4 dead 2, but I get them playing left 4 dead 1 and games like WoW and Age of Empires 3. Here is my crash report, and I don't game in bootcamp. Running 10.6.5 on a late 2008 unibody macbook pro. Can anyone tell me from the crash report what's going on?

recently my Mac Mini started behaving abnormally. I've started getting kernel panics and app crashes. I tried repairing permissions, repairing my disk and even reset my PRAM. I just bought my Mini 2 months ago so its new.
I have a 2010 MacBook Pro running the latest iteration of Lion. Recently, the computer has experienced frequent kernel panics (three today alone) requiring the laptop to be restarted. I have noticed that these tend to occur more frequently when I wake the computer after letting the battery drain down to near or below ten percent of its capacity and subsequently plugging it in after it goes to sleep.
The only other clue I have is that every time the computer experiences a kernel panic and restarts, Spotlight re-indexes my hard drive (i.e., the magnifying glass icon in the upper-right-hand corner of my screen has the little blinking red dot inside of it).
I have read a couple of things on the internet about how this may be due to Symantec Anti-Virus, which I have installed on my computer. However, that is pure speculation on my part based on a random post on a non-Apple-sponsored discussion board somewhere.

My friend has been having trouble with his 15 inch, early 2011 macbook pro. He is running OS X 10.9.4
It seems to work great until he streams media or connects to his school email.
I've taken a picture of what the screen looks like when it last froze while he checked his email:
Shortly after this, he had trouble booting the macbook back up. He would see either a blue screen with light and dark blue vertical lines. He would also boot up the computer and it would be stuck on the white loading screen without the apple logo.
I also have the console logs for the past few bootups:
i'm experiencing frequent kernel panics on Lion with 10.7.3. This has only started occuring in the last week with no obvious changes before it started. I've repaired disk permissions, used OnyX to clean everything up, and it still occurs (approx 4-5 times per day). My computer is a 15" MacBook Pro with 8gb ram, 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, NVidia GeForce 9400m 256mb video card. It seems to occur more frequently when I have an external drive attached (either Firewire or USB). As my profession is video editing, it's not really viable for me to simply not have one connected!! This is starting to get quite frustrating as it interrupts my work significantly.

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?
After recent upgrade to Lion OS I have trouble running Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS 6 Beta. Lightroom 4 frequently crashes upon opening. Photoshop CS 6 is unable to open an image file from Finder, Bridge or Lightroom and also freezes up. iMac no longer recognizes wireess keyboard strokes. Have tried disk utility repairs and various restarts with key strokes to reset but they don't work after a short while.
it seems osx is less stable than it used to be. My iMac 20.1 2011 osx 10.7.3 15 seems to crash and recover all by itself about two times per week. Its happens more if I try to run Aperture or Excel but happened this morning as I was writing a few notes on a pad and I was not actually using the machine. I see reports of problems with Chrome - but I've got firefox installed for web work, and this morning only had LibreOffice open with iTunes running in the background.
Long discussions at Apple, genius and by phone have not helped. I am usually told "I have no trouble running all my macs on Lion." I have no problems with my old mbp upgraded from Tiger to Snow Leopard and still battling on well.

I'm experiencing kernel panics whenever attempting to load drives using the browser-based interface for the HighPoint Technologies RocketRAID Quad eSATA 6 Gbit/s for Mac controller. This began occurring immediately after updating to Safari 5.1.7 (OSX v10.7.4).
All my eSATA peripherals are therefore completely unusable. Rather than using Time Machine to back up to the last update, has anyone got a workaround? Either using Terminal or Firefox or something else? IE?
Does Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 come in a MAC version?
If it doesn't what is the point of buying the Adobe Creative Suite CS3 Production Premium bundle? Of course, I think more people would rather use Final Cut Studio 2, like me, and really the only reason I'd get the Production Premium Suite is for Flash, After Effects and Photoshop.
I've been noticing that my early 2008 quad mac pro has been having more frequent kernal panics and is pretty random.I've also noticed that my video card fan(ATI Radeon HD 2600) has been reving up and down and has been more noticeable.Could this be related? Do I need a better card?
I have tried and it has me download Akamai Downloader Manager. Then When I open that it says that there is a Disk l/O error, I have over 80 GB of disk space, why is this happening? The other problem I had was the same thing but Network connection Error, when I had full internet
I recently upgraded to OS 10.5 on two desktops. The PowerMac Intel works fine. The G5 Quad seems to be having weekly kernel panics and frequent software crashes (an example yesterday: Word and Safari were open. After a few minutes of no keyboard input whilst reading a webpage, Word crashed, followed by Safari). Running Maya seems to cause the kernel panics. It did so, once in a while, on OX 10.4, but with 10.5 it's become a frequent occurrence. Calling Apple (still on Applecare) doesn't help. They run some diagnostics and can't pinpoint anything. Clearly if they don't recognize the problem, they can't fix it. (I also run Maya on the PowerMac Intel with no problems, so Maya isn't the problem.)
Realplayer, streaming, has been playing during some of these occurrences — is this a known culprit? Any suggestions? Was the G5 Quad just a bad model? Can I turn off whatever causes the kernel panic alerts that freeze my computer? Should I be demanding more out of Applecare — is there anything I should expect them to replace? Should I downgrade to OS 10.4? If so, how do I do this? Many questions I know...
I tried to locate /Library/Logs/PanicReporter according to this link to no avail. I'm not happy with logging using verbose mode and having to retype it all up. I also don't have it in a network of macs to allow for this technique and I feel as if there's a pretty obvious way of capturing these reports that I'm missing.
I have had the Macbook air 11.6 for five weeks now and it has been rock solid except for a couple of kernel panics. Once when I first got it I got a kernel panic in Safari. I only use google browser now. I got a kernel panic two days ago. I went to open the lid and it did not come on. I found out there was a kernel panic. I am afraid if I take it to the genius bar they will have me reinstall the OS and add one app back at a time to see what is causing it but since they are so infrequent this is obviously not convenient. Also I have had my IMac 24 for three years and have tons more junk on it and have never got one panic.
Can kernel panics on one machine somehow cause panics on another machine. My situation, I recently started using a BC338 esata card in my mid 2007 MBP running Leopard. Never had panics before but since trying to use this card with an esata drive I've had 5 kernel panics. I also have a Mac Mini running Snow Leopard which has had two kernel panics during times when the MBP had panics. Can these be related? Before using this card, I never had panics on either machine?

From the log, can anyone tell me what's causing the kernel panic?
I am currently planning to upgrade my 2gb RAM and I heard that my model supports up to 6GB of RAM, hence I am planning to upgrade to that size cause Aperture uses lots of memory and I use Aperture a lot. I am planning to get it from here: OWC 6GB PC5300 DDR2 667MHz DIMM Upgrade Kit. Everything is cool and all until I find out that some users are having kernel panics on OSX 10.6 with 6GB RAM (which is what I am using). It is now 10.6.3, so anyone care to report if it is safe to use 6GB or the problem still exist?
I've been having a lot of Kernel Panics (you need to restart black screens). I've only just worked out that they almost always occur after the mac has been dormant. For instance, I'll leave the machine on (and the black screen/sleep mode activates instantly), after twenty minutes I come back to the machine, it comes back to life, but within a minute or so it crashes. This seems to be the pattern, it very rarely crashes mid-use. Safari is also nearly always loaded?
I have some problems with my macbook 4,1 (early 08). Since a few weeks I get sometimes kernel panics. Last night I had 7 kernel panics within 1 hour. Can anyone help me analysing these logs? memtest86+ doesn't show any problems after 8 hours.
Last week, after completely normal use, the computer booted up to a screen with the finder icon / flashing question mark. After a few more atempts to power up i started getting just the grey apple screen with spinning wheel and loud fans. I was advised by a friend to boot from the install DVD by holding alt when powering up. When i try this, after selecting the DVD from the boot up options, I get kernel panic and the message " panic: We are hanging here...". Then nothing.
