Kernal panic leads to a DEAD PB. Help!

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
So I had a lovely Kernal panic last night while copying MP3s from a data disc. At least what must have been a kernal panic. White text w/ a black background (only around the text), it said very random stuff, including Darwin Kernal .... (BTW I'm running 10.2.6) so I manual powerdown and start-up. Oh crap. I hear the HD starting to spin but thats it. No tones, no screen, no blinking lights. I changed the slot the RAM was in ans restarted nada. I really don't know what to do! I tried to Zap the P-Ram, but nothing happenes at all. I don't even know if I'm doing it right. Please does anyone have ANY ideas to help get my PB back up? Anything I can do at all? I have all my discs and what not on me. Please help me get it started.

Thank you!!!!

    You know. In every mp3 file bad carma is encoded in the 10 hz area. You can´t hear it but caused the election of Bush, the G4 failour and now the near death of your PB. Use them with caution. Theres a reason why Apple went over to AAC.
