Resolution for Kernel panic message appears

Post by Admin on Wed Nov 13, 2013 11:21 pm

"You need to restart your computer" (kernel panic) message appears (Mac OS X v10.5, 10.6)

Step1: Depending on the model of Mac you have, restart one of these ways:

Press and hold the Power button for several seconds to turn off your Mac. Then, press the Power button to startup your Mac.
If you have a Restart button, press it.

Step 2: As soon as your Mac starts up, hold down the Shift key to start up with a Safe Boot into Safe Mode. Note: If you are using a third-party external keyboard and cannot start with a Safe Boot, try using an Apple keyboard instead.

Step 3: If your Mac has a kernel panic starting up, or while in Safe Mode, jump to the "Troubleshooting a recurring kernel panic" section of this article.

Step 4: If your Mac starts up without a kernel panic after a Safe Boot, restart your Mac by choosing Apple Menu > Restart…, then let it start up normally. Run Software Update and install all available updates until Software Update reports "Your software is up to date". Mac OS X updates improve the tolerance for external issues such as malformed network packets. For most kernel panics, this is all you have to do.
