Hello.. i have a MacBook Pro 15 with i7 2.66, 4gb RAM and a NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 512MB graphics card. I bought it second hand from the internet, but now unfortunatly it has started crashing. It usually happens when i am doing multiple processes, for example having a skype call and looking a pictures (this is one of many examples!!) Do you think its a graphics card issue or.... The mac is not neccessarly hot, as it sometime occurs straight after i open it from sleeping. Please someone help, i want to be a happy mac owner

    This sounds like a strange problem.


    Is it still under warranty?


    Take it in to a Mac Genius or call applecare.

    I just started having this problem in the last four days.  If you do the latest OS update, you have 90 days support from AppleCare.  They will try to help you troubleshoot.


    They determined that I have a hardware problem and should visit an Apple Genius.


    I tried repairing permissions.  That sped up my PCs performance but, it has since resumed freezing.  I'll be going to the Apple Store tomorrow.
