    Mac Noob - Kernel Panic
    Hi all,

    I recently made the switch to Mac (about 6 months ago) with my macbook pro. Everything's been going really smoothly so far, but today I've had several kernal panic errors (the screen goes dark and I am told I need to restart my computer).
    It seems to happen only when Safari is open. Being new to Macs, I'm not really sure how to go about fixing this issue. Can anyone reccommend a good path of action?

    First thing is make sure you're all updated.
    Then I would try is see if the RAM is bad.
    Then run Onyx and check your hard drive status.

    thanks for your reply.

    It looks like its not Safari that is causing the crash, but gmail and igoogle. Everything is up to date according to updater, so I'm not sure whats going on here. Anyone else having this problem?
