    Anyone experiencing this? Problem occurs while watching a movie(saved to hdd). During the first 5-15 mins. and requires me to force restart, Is this a hardware problem?

    Does it always happen with the same movie file? Do you experience a kernel panic any other time?

    Either or. When OS X cannot complete the next step either by bad code or unresponsive hardware it goes into a kernel panic.

    Try:

    • different file same app
    • different app same file
    • different user account

    The disk may have errors. Try restarting the Mac with the drive unplugged. After booting,plug the drive. If it does the same thing, you may have to repair the disk or format it.
