Kernel panic at startup with grey wave and ram dead.
i'm glad to find this website, it is very usefull and help me a lot
I have a big issue with my macbookpro.
It started with a lot of grey wave that cover all the screen sometimes, stay 10 minutes to many days and disapear less than 30 minutes. One day the mac didnt want to start and was doing the noise for ram issues ( 3 sound every four seconds ). I change the ram and i restart it. The apple appears and the wheel turn, it appear on the screen of short wave and after a kernel panic. After 5 restart, it's ringing again (3 sound every four seconds) .
I have some picture that i post on google :

Please tell me i can save him !!!!! i love this *^&&%^% computer :D
Thank you a lot for your help
This sounds like you may have two issues. First let's look at the RAM issue. One RAM chip and try it in slot A, then try it in slot B. If it is good in one slot and not the other, try the second chip the same way. The video issue may be the video GPU. You may have a bad 8600 nVidia chip. Please give us the last three figures of your serial number. Next hook it up to an external monitor and see if the problem persists. Let us know your results on the RAM and the video.
