Getting kernel panic when booting up
Last week while I was watchig a movie on my laptop, the computer froze and the colors changed to 32 or 16 bit. I turn the computer off and have been having trouble since. When I reboot I get a kernel panic message to restart. I've tried resetting the RAM and that worked to let me use my computer for a few days, but not anymore. I took it to the Apple store to get the video card replaced since theres been a recall on it and a graphics issue appeared to be the problem. They replaced it (and the logic board) for free, but it's still having the same issue of a kernel panic message showing up. All I got from the genius was that theres some issue in connections from where the power cable is plugged in to the logic board. They would fix it for $310, but I don't have that money and it's too old of a computer to invest that much in it. Any ideas what's wrong and how can I repair it?
WHAT i would do in this case will start the MAC using the CD drive, with the MAC OS X reinstal software, go to disk utility and repair the hard drive. this will not delete your files, and as far as a know this migth be a hard drive issue. try that, and i really dont think it that there is an issue with the graphics card,.... do im wrong??? any wise person that can tell me that im wrong??
