random kernel panic


mac-rat

Recommended Posts

Count me in as well.

 

I have installed the CMSA8GX3M2A133C9 8G kit about 2 weeks ago; 3 days after the new ram installation, the MBP started having random kernel panic. For the past two weeks, I since have 4 random kernel panic. Now I put back the apple original 4G ram, and will test the mac for a few days to consider my next course of action.:[pouts:

Please see a few posts before as I have suggested the way to test the memory previously in this thread and what you should do in either case.

I would suggest checking with Apple to see if there is a firmware update, then install just one module and reset the PRAM then test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org.

After the third kernel panic, I did performed a pram reset, but it only last couple days then it happened again.

 

All firmware and software is up-to-date on my early 2011 mbp, running the latest 10.7.5. As mentioned before, I will test the mbp with the apple original ram for awhile to find out whether or not kernel panic is still a problem; then will re-install the Corsair ram with pram reset and run the memtest.

It sounds like the system is not compatible with 8.0 Gig modules have you checked if apple sells a 16 Gig set of modules for that system? AFAIK only the latest 2012 Version running the quad channel I7 is the only MBP version that officially supports 16 Gig of Ram.
