Power Mac G5 :: Frequent Kernel Panics Freeze Up?

Dec 18, 2007

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.

OS X :: Frequent Kernel Panics When Playing Games

Nov 21, 2010

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?

Mac Mini :: Frequent App Crashes And Kernel Panics?

May 28, 2012

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.

MacBook Pro :: Frequent Kernel Panics When Waking From Sleep?

Apr 19, 2012

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.

MacBook Pro :: Has Frequent Kernel Panics And Blue Screens On Startup

Sep 1, 2014

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:

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.

Power Mac G5 :: Booting Up And Kernel Panics

Oct 10, 2007

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.

Power Mac G5 :: Diagnosing Kernel Panics - Performance Loss

Oct 29, 2007

For the past two weeks or so I have been getting a lot of Kernel Panics. Most of them happen when I select Restart or Shutdown. There have also been cases of Final Cut Pro crashing regularly, but I think the Kernel Panics are far more important to diagnose. I have not changes any hardware for at least a year. The machine has 4.5gb of RAM and 40% of the system drive free. I have run Disk Utility to repir the disk as well as the permissions, all coming back with no errors. The only thing that I can think of that changed is that I purchased and ran Disk Warrior 4. It seemed to help tremendously with performance, however, it is the only thing that I can think of that has changed. I am also suffering from some performance loss as well. I get at least one Kernel Panic a day. I have no idea what the KP mean, but they all look similar.

OS X :: G5 Quad Frequent Kernel Panic

Nov 26, 2008

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...

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Frequent Kernel Panic On 10.7.3 When Using USB / Firewire Etc?

Apr 25, 2012

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.

Power Mac G5 :: Frequent Required Power Cycling Of Dsl Modem?

Nov 18, 2007

I have the problem that I need to frequently power cycle (shut off and on) my dsl modem to maintain a reasonable speed with my internet connection. It is making the internet experience pretty user unfriendly. Does any one know whether there is a way to optimize my internet connection such that this is not required so frequently (couple times a day)? I am on my second dsl modem, and the same problem has occurred with each of them. ATT simply advises me that my solution is to power cycle the modem to sync the system, whatever that means.

OS X :: How To Log Kernel Panics Automatically On 10.6.5

Nov 18, 2010

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.

MacBook Air :: How Many Kernel Panics Too Much

Jan 9, 2011

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.

OS X :: Kernel Panics On Two Machines?

Sep 8, 2009

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?

MacBook Pro :: Kernel Panics On OS X 10.6 With 6GB RAM

Apr 3, 2010

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?

OS X :: Kernel Panics After Sleep?

Apr 20, 2010

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?

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?

Mac Pro :: Getting Kernel Panics When Monitors Connected

Apr 8, 2008

I've been using my new Mac Pro with no issues for several weeks with the same hardware setup & OS all along. Suddenly I'm getting kernel panics. It happens when I startup from the system drive or from install disc. And sometimes when I startup it just hangs on the blue screen with no desktop coming onto the screen. It started happening after I did a Carbon Copy Clone of my system drive onto a firewire drive, & when I came back to my computer several hours later the screen was black & white stripes. I've been on the phone with apple care several times and even took my machine to the genius bar today where they recommended a stress test and said I would get it back in 5 - 10 business days (gasp!). Of course there were no kernel panics while I was there (for an hour, and at home I'm getting them every few minutes), so I decided to take it home & check it over myself in a process of elimination.

I've removed all third party ram, and have 2 hard drives installed - the system drive & the drive I use for time machine. The RAM is listed as OK in system profiler and the HD's are verified with Disk Utility - also disk permissions verified & repaired on the system drive. I have 2 Acer monitors - model AL2016W. I tried plugging in one at a time in each DVI port for a total of 4 tests - each with a fresh startup. There were no kernel panics. Then I plugged them both in at the same time, started up, & got the kernel panics. Tried this twice with the same results. With or without any applications open, it's the same. Within 2 - 4 minutes I get a kernel panic when both monitors are plugged in. Later, I got kernel panics with just one monitor connected. So my question is; What could be the reason it's getting kernel panics sometimes & sometimes not? As I said, nothing has changed in my setup since I got the machine - and everything was running fine since mid February.

During my testing I have these connections:
One or two monitors. Power cord. Apple wired keyboard & mouse (these were not connected at the time this started happening so I have eliminated them from the possible source of trouble.) All bluetooth devices are powered off & no other external devices are connected. I just completed the Apple Hardware Test & it detected this error: "4HDD/11/40000004.SATA(0,0)" Does this mean there's something wrong with a hard drive? If so, which one?

Mac Pro Early 2008 2.8 Mhz 8 core
OS X 10.5.1
2 gigs original "apple" RAM
HD 1 - Samsung F1 (system - 750 gigs of which 420 are being used)

OS X :: Getting Kernel Panics When USB Hubs Plugged In?

Feb 10, 2009

I have become increasingly frustrated and angry at my MacBook in the last few weeks. Nearly every time I plug in a USB hub, I get a kernel panic. When I send the report to apple, this is what comes up near the bottom of the window:

Backtrace continues...
Kernel loadable modules in backtrace (with dependencies):
dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOHIDFamily(1.5.3)@0x709000

Sometimes there's a USB HUB written in there. What is going on? I've tried switching from a rather generic hub to a Belkin one, and most recently I just plugged in my aluminum keyboard and immediately got a KP. They've been happening with regularity over the past while, all when I unplug or plugin my USB hub with an iPod touch, keyboard/mouse, USB drive and headset (though recently I've been removing peripherals). I'm about to do an archive and install (assuming my MB works long enough for me to download the combo updater) but want to kill this bug soon.

Mac Pro :: Repeated Kernel Panics / How To Avoid It

Feb 20, 2009

I began having freezes unrelated to any new software or behaviors. The hardware check showed no problems with the hardware or memory, so I cleaned out the inside of the computer, used Disk utility, AppleJack, Mac Janitor and reset p ram (all said it was OK, then the freeze came back), and finally zeroed the hard drive and reinstalled OSX.

It was stable for a few weeks then the freeze happened again followed by repeated kernel panics. I went thru all the steps above again but finished with an archive and install and created a new user admin account. Until this point the freezes and KP were on all three user profiles. But now this new user admin is fully functional while the others are still messed up.

OS X :: Having Huge Number Of Kernel Panics

Feb 24, 2009

New to the forum and unfortunately with a problem. Just got a new Mac Pro 8 Core over the weekend and Im having unusually high number of Kernel Panics (more in a couple of days then I have for the past 10 years with my other macs). I have tried to see if anything in particular causes it (ie Programs that cause the crash, time intervals, etc) and nothing can be ruled as the cause at least not that I can notice. It has happened wile using PS (CS4), Aperture, Google Earth, Safari and just in sleep mode. Here is one of the Kernel Panics along with system info. ps. The Mac started kernel panics before I loaded two additional hard drives and the wireless card (pci express).

PowerPC :: G5 Having Kernel Panics 3 To 4 Times A Day

Jul 24, 2009

The computer I am having problems with is a Mac Dual 2.7 Ghz Power PC G5 with 3.75 GB DDR SDRAM. Moved premises at start of year - had to have a new ethernet adapter card fitted but no problems for about 4 months. Then it started having Kernel Panics. It got to the stage where at one time it was 3 to 4 times a day. Took it to a local repair shop who put it on test but said they couldn't find a problem. Within 10 minutes of my switching it on it went again. They changed a memory board. Still no change. Changed Ethernet adapter card. Still no change. I have a print out of the latest system & console logs I can email if that will help an expert.
