    Hello!

    Any ideas as to what I can do? I was not planing to throw this MBP away just yet.


    Thanks in advance! I hope anyone have a bright idea as to what it can be!

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    Does it start of the restore media?


    edit: I must have sat much longer on this screen than I thought before I hit reply. I didn't see the verbose boot info. See chscag's reply below.

    You're getting a "Disk Full" error according to the kernel panic log. How much room is there left on the hard drive? You're also getting an invalid index key error which is usually fatal. I would say that the hard drive needs to be replaced.

    Make an appointment with your local Apple store genius. They'll verify if you qualify for the free replacement logic board after they run diagnostics.
    (The video graphics controller is soldered to the logic board.)

    You also need a new hard drive which they will not replace for free.

    Okay I will.

    Isn't the hard drive pretty easy to change your self?

    I changed the screen on my first mbp once, and it looked like the hard drive was pretty easily accessible. Guessing that getting someone else to fix the hard drive problem will be quite expensive..? Hard drivers are so cheap these days =)

    I will post an update on how the situation turns out when I get a hold on Apple/the local store.

    Okay, wanted to give an update on how it went.

    After about 45 days of arguing with my local "genius bar" I got it fix. It was covered by norwegian law.
    They changed the motherboard and the harddrive. Due to a fault in the graphic card and a sector fault in the hardrive
