    Taking back incompatible drivers for Geforce from 10.7 to 10.8 and it doesn't seem to crash anymore, but it's like having no optimized video driver… ********.

    Mountain Lion for me has reduced most of the serious issues.  I was having problem mostly with system freezes when using Safari or Firefox - and sometimes neither.  It didn't happen all the time, but enough that it was a concern.  In fact, I had been getting more of them in the weeks prior to the ML release.  Now, I have had no system freezes and an only ocasional beach ball from which the app recovers.  Safari 6 reported a Quicktime plug-in crash, but the app kept working.


    Over all the computer is faster and I really like the new ML features.  I hope ML helps all of you having the really serious issues.  Good luck!

    I had very infrequent crashes before upgrading my MBP6,2 to Mountain Lion. Apple support over the phone said they are fairly sure it is the video card. I am going in tomorrow to the GB. I already had to take my MBP in to have the motherboard replaced once before for the same reason but that was within 6 months of my purchase.


    I am not happy because even though I have AppleCare for another 4 months and this will be repaired by Apple for free... I use my MBP everyday and need it for work. They say it will probably take 2 to 14 days to repair/replace the moutherboard because the VC is built into the motherboard. Plus I have a feeeling this issue will rear its ugly head again once my AppleCare is over.


    I expected more from Apple. Not sure if I will be getting another MBP when this one finally dies from its 3rd video card failure.
