Diablo® III

System frequently and randomly kernel panics


I've been playing Diablo III since launch day and until recently had no issues to speak of. However lately my Mac will kernel panic without warning (and by no pattern that I can decipher), restarting the system. I'd been reporting to Apple each time, but I figured I would show you the report it gave me from the most recent crash. I play Hardcore, and lost a paragon 42 wizard to a kernel panic once already... I'd appreciate any feedback so that I don't lose the second one! ;)

EDIT: I should probably mention that I've only seen this happen when Diablo III is running!

My first thought would be a loose RAM DIMM. You can verify whether or not it is the RAM causing this by downloading and burning a Memtest86 CD. You can find the ISO for free here:


Follow the directions in the readme for Memtest86 and let the test run. It may take several hours depending on whether or not there are any problems. If the computer KPs during the memory test, it's definitely RAM related.

Let me know what the results are.
