Hey, I've look around the whole of the internet for help and I couldn't find a fix for this problem. So sorry if this has already been covered.

Basically when I run Avid - ProTools 8 on my iMac and the music session gets quite heavy for the mac to run it drops to the "you need to restart your computer" screen. I've tried repairing the mac files with the Snow Leopard disk and it still crashes.

Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

It looks like a memory fault. Use your Snow Leopard startup DVD to perform the Apple Hardware Test. Run the extended tests. Post any errors it reports back. See this LINK.

You might also want to run Memtest OS X. It's free, download from here.

I've done the test and it said that there was no trouble??

So its not the hardware. Is there any way of testing if there are any corrupt files?

Got any other ideas?

You can check for corrupt files by using Disk Utility after booting from your startup DVD. "Verify and Repair" However, I don't think it's a corrupt file that's causing the KP.

If you notice above in bold it says "while dma active". That means the fault has occurred while direct memory access (dma) is active. Something is causing that to happen and it could be intermittent. You might try pulling the memory modules and re-seating them to see if that helps.

Sorry, what do you mean by this? do you mean taking out the ram and putting it back in again?

Yes.

Note: I do not use Pro Tools.

However, after not much research, I'd suggest updating ProTools. It appears it is having issues with either/both the USB and audio drivers causing the memory errors. ProTools has put out multiple updates pertaining to these two.

Also, looks like you have version 8.0.3 and running Snow Leopard. Best I could tell, the oldest version they're showing as compatible with SL is 8.0.4. I'd also be looking to their forums for info and recommendations.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Yeah! I've just found out there is an update which I need to get. I had the 8.0.3 and the 8.0.4 has an update saying - - - -

"Kernel Panic when shutting down Mac if Mbox 2 was disconnected previously (Item #PTSW-56617)
OS/Platform: Mac/LE Area: Mbox 2 Family (USB) Mac computers would kernel panic (crash) on shut down if the computer was started with an Mbox 2 USB device (Mbox 2, Mbox 2 Mini, or Mbox 2 Micro) attached, and the Mbox 2 is disconnected prior to shutdown.

Core Audio Manager crashes when launching some 3rd party applications with Mbox 2 devices (Item #PTSW-125131) OS/Platform: Mac/LE Area: Core Audio
Core Audio Manager crashes when launching applications such as FM8, Massive, or Absynth 5 when an Mbox 2 device is connected. This would occur if Core Audio Manager was installed and Digi CoreAudio Device was selected in System Preferences>Sound>Output. The crash has been resolved. However, because Mbox 2 devices are full Core Audio clients, it is not necessary to use Core Audio Manager with them (this is only necessary with Digi 002, 003, and Pro Tools HD). With Mbox 2 family devices, you can simply select Mbox 2 in System Preferences>Sound>Output."

So this update might fix it.

I'll let you know if its truly fixed.

Thank you both very much for your help!
