I purchased a MacBook Pro and switched the standard HDD with a new

"SAMSUNG SSD 830 Series, 256,06 GB". Unfortunately I experience several random application crashes, mostly after startup.


Crash log examples:

Chrome - and

TextEdit -
Adobe Premiere -


I tested my RAM with Rember, but it did not recognize any errors. So maybe it's a fault of the SSD? How can I detect this?


Thanks in advance!


Best regards,


MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 8GB RAM, 2.9GHz i7

    Back up all data if you haven’t already done so.


    Boot in safe mode.* This will cause certain caches maintained by the system to be rebuilt. The instructions provided by Apple are as follows:


    1. Shut down your computer, wait 30 seconds, and then hold down the shift key while pressing the power button.
    2. When you see the gray Apple logo, release the shift key.


    Safe mode is much slower to boot than normal.


    When the login screen appears, reboot as usual (not in safe mode) and test. There's no need to log in while in safe mode.


    *Note: If FileVault is enabled under OS X 10.7 or later, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t boot in safe mode. In that case, proceed as below.


    You must be logged in as an administrator to carry out these instructions.


    Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:


    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)


    ☞ In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.


    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.


    Triple-click the line below to select it, then drag or copy into the Terminal window — do not type — and press return:


    sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force


    You'll be prompted for your login password, which won't be displayed when you type it. You may get a one-time warning not to screw up.

    Reboot and test.

    Boot in safe mode again, but this time log in and test. If the crashes don't happen in safe mode, back up all data, then uninstall Paragon NTFS according to the developer's instructions. Reboot as usual.
