I am running Mavericks on a mid 2013 macbook air (haswell). I have been getting multiple kernel panics a day for about the past week. It isn't happening on any specific task or time - I can't isolate it to anything. Sometimes i'm coding in Vim, writing an email, or playing League of Legends. I finally got so frustrated last night, I completely wiped the computer (formatting the drive in disc utility then reinstalling Mavericks). Here is the panic log.

I would really appreciate any help you can offer with this, it's really frustrating.

Welcome to Ask Different! Please use code formatting for Terminal output! Quote formatting doesn't preserve line breaks and is very difficult to read. –  grgarside Jul 9 at 17:22

According to your log you have a Razer mouse!

Kernel Extensions in backtrace: com.razer.common.razerhid(9.35)[0A917EFD-D323-36E1-AE4A-288047813989]@0xffffff7f8aecd000->0xffffff7f8aee5fff

It looks like your Razer mouse and/or its driver caused that panic.

That causes the BSD process name corresponding to current thread: WindowServer (the app that switches your windows) to fail.

Disconnect the mouse and test.

So far it seems to have fixed the issue it's been a few hours without any issues. Going to use it for another day or two and see what happens. Thanks @buscar –  Zach Russell Jul 9 at 4:38

I can confirm you that I'm experiencing the same issue with my new Razer mouse, 4 kernel panics in less than 3 hours –  PERR0_HUNTER Jul 10 at 0:35

I also have a razer mouse. My computer did not (yet) have multiple kernel panics a day. I guess it's the driver. I didn't install the razer mouse driver.

I contacted Razr and they replaced the mouse. –  Zach Russell Sep 22 at 4:31
