    Exclamation Panic (system crashes) - Kernel trap - MacBook Pro
    Hi everyone.

    Didn't know what to do anymore... thought this might be the right place to look for answers.
    To get to the point...

    I randomly get system crashes - the reason is always a kernel trap.. like just recently, 20 mins ago

    Description: Panic (system crashes)
    panic(cpu 0 caller 0x2a6ac2): Kernel trap at 0x00279f9d, type 14=page fault
    BSD process name corresponding to current thread: firefox-bin

    The thing is it doesn't matter what i do...they always seem to come again...

    Usually when using Adobe Lightroom when either exporting a lot of pictures (90 +) or quickly scrolling thru them and sorting them.
    Sometimes when running time machine... just when it's like at 90% it crashed again. But the next time it works... Its always a Kernel trap...

    I'm running snow leopard since today, thought i might solve the problem but now i had the first again... (posted above) this time firefox was involved.. and also the only application running

    I had the same crashes with Leopard.
    Got the harddrive replaced somewhen before summer, everything was running smooth for a month or two without any problems... then it started again out of nothing. I reinstalled everything (at that time still Leopard)
    and it worked again for about 1 month... now it started again. Someone at my mac shop said that those kernel traps could be a software problem. I reinstalled everything quite often, had the leopard install dvd checked, also ran several hardware tests... nothing was found.

    It seemed that running a disk utility permission check and repair made the problem go away at least for a while because at least after those crashes the permissions seemed to have gotten crazy messed up.. at least with leopard.

    I'm on a MacBook Pro 1,1
    2gb ram
    320gb hd
    Intel Core Duo 2.16 GHz

    In the now a lil over 3 years i have this MBP I had the motherboard or gfx chip as well as superdrive replaced twice already and the hd once.
    Really don't know anymore what to do.
    I think the extended warranty is gone now as well and this MBP is my one and only extensively needed workspace, connection to home, the world and so on... i love it but especially over the last 1 1/2 years it has given me troubles over troubles... no matter what they replace or said they had fixed...

    well.. i hope anybody here has some ideas that can help
    kind regards!

    Is the RAM stock? Have you added any new RAM since these Kernel Panics started?

    MBP Snow Leopard Kernel Panic
    I have been having the same types of issues. I have one of the newer macbook pros (although not the newest). I found the kernel panic log and here is what it says... Any ideas what might be causing this?
