MacBook Pro :: Kernel Panic Grey Screen?

Aug 28, 2014

i have a Macbook running mountain lion, which froze today on safari.  I had to force close then when I restarted, it stuck on the grey screen with apple logo and pinwheel.  I tried rebooting in safe mode, which eventually came up with the following    

panic(cpu 0 caller 0x004384FF): "unable to find driver for this platform: "ACPI".
"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1228.12.14/iokit/Kernel/IOPlatformExpert.cpp: 1407  

and a lot of other stuff under that.  I understand this is a kernel panic?  

i've tried a disk repair which came back as 'disk utility can't repair this disk etc'  

is there any hope I will be able to connect via Ethernet to another mac and get to my hard drive or is all hope lost?

Mac Pro :: Kernel Panic On Screen With Restart Message

Jun 17, 2010

I turned up one day to teach using the Mac Pro and the message on the screen said I had to restart my computer. After many times I gave up. I wrongly thought the hard disk failed as one of the pupils saw some water underneath the Mac from the leaking roof. I checked and formatted the hard drive inside a pc and put Windows on it. After inserting the hard drive and the OSX into the dvd drive proceeded to re-install the software, only to find exactly the same problem as before. What to check next before trying to find someone to fix it.

Intel Mac :: PeerGuardian Appears To Be Causing Kernel Panic?

Jun 25, 2012

PeerGuardian appears to be causing kernel panic and my iMac to continuously srash, and yet I cannot find it to uninstall - Spotlight yields no results at all, and I have removed it from login items under System Preferences / Accounts. I want to remove PeerGuardian completely to see if this resolves the kernel panic but don't see (a) how I can, given that I can't find it anywhere and/or (b) how it can be causing a kernel panic if I can't find it anywhere!

Software :: MacBook Stuck With Kernel Panic Message

Feb 25, 2010

I was trying to help my husband with his phone. I followed the phone's manufacturer's suggestions and it told me load software for managing it. When I went to install it the computer told me it had 59 things to install. It was late, I was tired and shouldn't have been doing this at this time. I did, when it was done installing we had a kernel panic. I am in a different country, in a village. No MacStore! I am frightened and worried. I am computer literate for a person my age, but still. If it is to be resolved I will have to do it and I wish the kids were here with their friends. I am hoping someone will be able to talk me out of this predicament.

I have tried to press the shift key for safe mode. No result. I have tried another one that has me pressing some buttons while loading and text comes up and I am supposed to type in FSCK -fy However this could not be done as the cursor was there, but no text was appearing. I think that is all I have tried. I do have my MacBook here and it is slightly older than his. I may have a firewire that may work to run his off of mine. I don't know. Can't you come in like Verizon did years ago and fix it right in front of me over the internet?

Applications :: Kernel Panic Message - Restart Computer

Jul 26, 2010

My imac has started to have a kernel panic all the time lately. It is where the whole screen will go darker and then a box in all different languages comes up saying I need to restart the computer. I have a couple of questions in relation to this, first if I reinstall and then back up from timemachine will I have the same issue again? If I do a fresh install and reimport all my music and vids manually will that be a better way to do things?

MacBook Air :: Gray Apple Screen - Looks Like DOS / Panic / Kernel

Jun 4, 2014

I am stuck with DOS-looking commands on the gray apple startup screen. Part of the commands are listed below. I can't do anything. I'm not even sure I've been able to reboot, although I've tried holding the power button, holding S+Cmd+power, and holding ctrl+option+cmnd+shift+power. I can get it to go dark like it's rebooting, but the gray apple screen pops back up and about 3 seconds later the codes come back.

panic  "unable to find driver for this platform..."
Debugger called <panic>

OS X :: MacBook Sleep And Barely Visible Kernel Panic Screen?

May 22, 2009

Something weird has happened twice in the last week or so - I close my MacBook (black), open it later (I think both times I moved it somewhere), and when I re-open the screen is black and I have to restart using the power button.

What I noticed this time is that I could barely make out text on the screen, and although I couldn't read the whole thing, it was definitely a kernel panic "grey screen of death":

I'm wondering why this could be happening - both times it definitely had to do with closing and re-opening the laptop, and I'm wondering what the dimmed screen (I could barely make out the words) says about the issue.

OS X :: Getting Kernel Panic After Logo Screen

May 24, 2010

My 3+ year old MacBook is unable to startup anymore. Whenever I boot up, after the apple logo I get the Kernel Panic. This happened after one time when I forced shutdown after I thought my macbook crashed. I've read from past threads this is possibly to do with hardware problems, but I can still boot to bootcamp windows (which I am currently using) and all seems to work fine. What can I do?

OS X :: Kernel Panic On Login Screen After Restart

Feb 12, 2010

I think it's UNIX. Not too familiar with it. I have G4 powerbook. 4 years old. Tiger. I was surfing safari, when I got the wheel. Couldn't even click the desktop to activate the finder. Did a hard reboot. Now, the mac Icon comes up, then goes to a black screen, then to the MAC OSX start up window (bar doesn't move). Then a black screen with Darwin/BSD (new-host.home) (console) login: It just comes up with a line that ends with my user name and restarted then same thing happens.

Intel Mac :: Kernel Panic And Black Screen?

May 24, 2012

Last night I was in the middle of downloading a file and had a kernal panic (crash report below).When I now log in I either immediately get a black screen ( but can see white spots which are the corners of windows opened) or sometimes I get to my desktop but after a few minutes the screen windows deteriate (repeatative ghosting like an old 80'spop video!) which then become unresponsive. I'm figuring it's had it's day now and hope to get a new iMac tonight. I would like to migrate everything but am unsure whether this is a hard drive failure ( in which case the migration is probably out of the window) or something else?

Software :: A Grey Screen Fades Into White And The Apple Logo Never Appears?

Nov 23, 2008

I have had my MacBook for almost two years and the battery had just died on me. So I sent it back to Apple and got a new one. But ever since switching over to this new battery, my computer has had issues starting up. A grey screen fades into white and the Apple logo never appears. The computer will just stay like that for hours. A friend suggested turning the power off and back on, holding apple+ctrl+P+R, which worked.However, the next time I turned my computer on, the screen stayed white again, without an Apple logo. Can you tell me what the deal is? Should I bother reporting this to Apple? Is this permanent damage I'm going to have to go thru everytime I start me laptop?

Laptops :: Unable To Complete Startup / Grey Screen With Apple And Spinning Wheel Appears

Jul 24, 2010

Hi all, I have two Powerbook G4 laptops. Both have very similar problems. When I try to start up, the grey screen with the apple and spinning wheel appears, but I can't get beyond that. If I walk away for an hour, when I come back there will still be a grey screen with apple and spinning wheel.

I admit I know little about this sort of thing, so I began poking around online for solutions. I tried Tech Tool Deluxe. Inserted the disk and held down "C," but again it never progressed beyond the grey screen with apple and spinning wheel. Most frustrating. Is there any other way of running the disk with the laptop?

Entering the terminal yielded slightly different results on each machine.

Powerbook #1: Once in terminal I typed...

/sbin/fsck -fy

...response was...

disk0s10: I/O error.
Invalid Key Length
(4, 44890)
** Volume check failed

...tried /sbin/fsck -fy over and over, always received the same results.

Powerbook #2: Once in terminal, this appears...

jnl: update_fs_block: failed to update block 1073777488 (ret 5)
jnl: journal_open: Error replaying the journal!
hfs: early jnl init: failed to open/create the journal (retval 0)

...and it won't even let me type /sbin/fsck -fy.

I tried plugging both latops into my desktop in target mode. In both cases the target icon appeared on the laptop screen but the hard drive icon never appeared on the desktop screen. I would love to at least retrieve a few files off each machine, if nothing else.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Kernel Panics On Startup - Won't Get Past Grey Screen?

Jun 21, 2012

So out of nowhere my unibody MBP (specs, etc below) locked up yesterday while I was watching a video using VLC.  It stopped responding to anything so I held down the power button until it turned off.  I waited about 10 minutes and turned it back on.  Grey screen with spinning cog showed up for about a minute and then kernel panic.  Held down power button until it turned off.  Tried repeatedly - same results.  Won't boot into Safe Mode - still get a kernel panic everytime.  It will let me boot the machine into Target Disk Mode.  It will boot from my Snow Leopard install disk where I ran Disk Utility and "repaired disk" and "repaired disk permissions" on both the drive and the volume.  All the "repair disk" and "repair disk permissions" ended with messages in green type saying that the disk/permissions appear to be OK. 

I have an external FW drive used for TM backups for the machine.  A fair amount of data has been added since the last TM backup (which was less than 30 days ago) that, ideally, I'd like to not lose by resorting to restoring from a TM backup.  It's not the end of the world if the last (roughly) 30 days of data/changes ends up being lost, but I'm willing to work on getting it back up and running without doing an erase and install and then restoring from a TM backup if at all possible. 

Definitely if any other information or data is needed from me in order for anyone to assist, please let me know what it is and I'll do my best to provide it.
