I had problems with weird graphical glitches on my 2011 Macbook Pro. On service, they concluded it was a software issue, not a hardware one. I formatted my SSD and reinstalled Lion (since this is what the recovery tool gave me, even though I had Mountain Lion before). It worked for a week, but now the problems are recurring again. I managed to get a kernel panic log this time. Can anyone make sense of it?

The glitches makes me unable to boot sometimes, even to my Windows partition, until I reset PRAM. I'm really worried that this means that it is indeed a hardware problem.

Called Apple, asked for a complaint (EU customers can have it up to 3 years after purchase). They gave me a case ID but told me to go to the local service and let them handle it.

This time, they concluded that the HDD/SSD bracket/cable (don't know the correct English term for this) was loose. After testing with a different one, they concluded that this was the problem. The cause was probably due to not using ESD protection when installing the new RAM or SSD. I will get it back tomorrow, and hopefully this is the cause and not a faulty logic board.

EDIT: It seems like this didn't solve anything, but it now beeps three times when crashing and on boot, which indicates faulty memory. Ordered new, now waiting...
