Thanks for any help, this is my first post of this kind so please be kind if I am missing some obvious information and don't hesitate to request it!



The Problem:
I started experienceing intermittent KERNEL PANICS on a late 2011 15" Macbook Pro.



Questions & Requests:

1. I cannot interpret the kernel panic logs and therefore am hoping for help doing so.

2. I also have yet to identify the cause of the kernel panics so please suggest any causes as well!

3. Is there any doubt to the Apple Hardware Test program? Memtest did not detect a ram error (though I'm not sure it could test all of my ram).

4. Can I install OS X 10.10 on another partition of my internal 1TB SSD if I already have it installed on the same drive (but not same partition)? Could I then boot into the clean installed partition to effectively test the effect 3rd party software is having? (I believe I could do all of this on an external drive, but would prefer internal)
5. How can I clean a Macbook Pro memory slot ( eraser? Isopropyl alcohol? Compressed air? etc.)



Notes on the Kernel Panics:

1. They occur at random, lengthy, intervals, usually about once per day or two, sometimes longer.
2. When the kernel panic occurs, the system restarts, offers an error report and reloads all software to it's last state.
3. I installed everything using migration assistant from a 2012 13" Macbook Pro
4. Will crash while asleep or while running. Will crash with and without any peripheral devices attached.

5. I will list the occurrences recorded in /library/logs/DiagnosticReports and at least one sample at the end of my post.


What I've Tried & the Effect (in chronological order)

1. Delete things from spotlight - no effect

2. OS X reinstall (but not an erase & install) - seemed to reduce frequency of crashes but not solve problem

3. Deleted PRAM/NVRAM - no effect

4. Reset SMC - no effect

5. Repair disk (said repair unneeded) - no effect

6. Apple Hardware Test w/ Ram in 6 different configurations:

2x8gb Original Configuration - Failed Apple Hardware Test (error 4MEM/9/40000000 0x846e7218) but Passed Memtest & Rember
2x8gb Swapped slots - Failed Apple Hardware Test ( error 4MEM/9/40000000 0x846e8398)

Module A in Slot 0, Module B out - Failed Apple Hardware Test ( error 4MEM/9/40000000 0x846e7218)
Module A in Slot 1, Module B out - Passed at least 1 loop ( Went 1.5-2 hours looped no problems vs failed tests take 10 minutes or less)

Module B in Slot 0, Module A out - Failed Apple Hardware Test ( 4MEM/9/40000000 0x846e7498)
Module B in Slot 1, Module A out -Passed at least 1 loop ( Went 1 hours looped no problems vs failed tests take 10 minutes or less)


What I Plan To Do
1. Operate with 1x8gb memory in slot 1 to examine the possibility slot 0 is the problem. (This is the current state of my machine & testing)
2. Test another set of ram against the Apple Hardware Test
3. Reinstall 2x8GB ram and do a full erase and reinstall with limited third-party software, hoping that may fix the problem.

There are two things to try:

1. Replace every memory module with a new one (if possible).

2. Try booting in Safe Boot mode to eliminate all third party drivers and kexts. (From the panic report you're loading a lot of gaming stuff.)

It does appear that one or more of your memory modules is bad. As far as cleaning the slots, don't attempt it unless you have the ability to tear the machine down to where you can get at them. (difficult)

Trouble shooting tips and breakdown can be found at: www.ifixit.com

Let us know.

Based on some advice I got on the forums, I took a look at all of the kernel panic logs and you can see there are a few KEXTS which keep popping up as the last loaded or unloaded:
Logitech KEXTS & AppleUSB something....in fact at least one of those KEXTS is the last unloaded or loaded in every single panic log I have! Is this significant?!

do you think these could be a potential cause and what can I do about them? I assume I can simply uninstall the logitech software although I'm not sure how well my logitech devices will work then...as for the Apple stuff, I'm clueless.

Did you read my reply? Specifically the suggestion to start up in Safe Boot mode?
