Black Screen, must restart

I got this black screen, which i assume is the equivalent of BSOD. When I rebooted I got this:

this line indicates you may have corrupted system files (or worse, a failing hard drive):

panic(cpu 1 caller 0x41c4b3): "hfs_swap_HFSPlusBTInternalNode: catalog key #37 offset too big (0x04A4)\n"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1486.2.11/bsd/hfs/hfs_endian.c:500

Try booting from the grey restore disc which came with your computer, and run Disk Utility -> Repair Disk. It will hopefully repair the issue(s), and if not, provide additional diagnostic info.

If you do not have access to your restore discs, you can try a Safe Boot, by powering the machine on while holding down the SHIFT key - part of this process forces a unix fdsk disk repair utility to run.

Hopefully these suggestions will resolve your issues, and as always, if you can start up your system make sure you backup important files as soon as possible, just in case!

It sounds like a directory problem (the reference to a catalog key, which is software), which may or may not be caused by a hardware problem. David's advice was good.

If you can get it going, go to and download SMART Utility. This can be run in demo mode to see if any of your hard drive's SMART attributes have failed (Disk Utility will only tell you *after* the whole drive has failed; SU gives you more advance warning.) SMART is the self-monitoring hardware most modern hard drives have built into them.
