Please Help - Can't Boot MBP

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My macbook pro resumed from hibernate with the spinning disk, so I powered it off.

Now, whenever I power it on, I get an "Unresolved Kernel Trap". I can't boot and I don't know what to do......

I have booted with the Install disc and command-d and ran the system test. Everything Fine.

I booted the installe disc with command-c and ran Disk Utility. I verified and repairedthe disk and permissions.

Alas, I still get a kernel panic upon boot. Specifically:
Unresolved kernel trap(CPU0, Type=14 page fault),registers
..........................
....ommitting......
..........................
Debugger called: <panic>
Backtrace, Format - Frame : Return Address (4 potential args on stack)
...omiting....
Kernel loadable modules in backtrace(with dependencies):
com.apple.iokit.IOStorageFamily(1.5)00x4fd000


Do I have to reinstall the OS?

Thanks again for any advice.......

Update:

Good News....I hope.....

After booting again with command-c the install program started up and prompted for Disc 2. I inserted disc 2, waited forever for it to install iLife, and....presto...I was back on my desktop!

I instantly backed up my critical stuff onto a dvd....and then rebooted with fingers crossed.

Amazingly it booted ok....I am cautiously optimistic.....


Thanks for your help

Page fault is a normal condition - for it to crash on that makes me wonder about the RAM.

You might want to think about either making sure the RAM is seated firmly, or running the Hardware Test, or both.
