Apologies if this issue has been tackled time and time again, but I've browsed through several threads and the conditions all sem to be different then mine.

 

I am experiencing what I believe to be kernel panics 5-6 times a day.  There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it; sometimes, the machine will reboot 3 times in a row and need to be manually powered off for an hour, other times I can get through several hours before the machine randomly crashes and reboots again.  I've tried all of the quick fixes, have erased and restored from Time Machine (haven't done a full reinstall of ML yet).  As of right now, running repair permissions and verify disk on the MBP say that "everything appears to be OK."  So, at this point I'm stuck.  Short of bringing it in, if anyone has any advice I'd be most appreciative.

 

The only other things that have been happening differently lately are that the computer is running a bit more sluggishly than I'm used to, and the computer seems to have a really hard time staying connected to my wifi connection (could be a completely separate issue, or just a bad bout of ISP service)

 

Here are two recent crash reports:

    To be honest, I don't know what's causing the error. However, in both panics, Cycling74 is listed near the top; the driver may need to be updated, or the application trashed (until you locate the problem, of course).

     

    Also, I noticed that a possibly related kext, com.paceap.kext, is Snow Leopard, not Mountain Lion; an update might be in order.

    I don't want to give the impression that I know exactly what your problem is, but here goes.

     

    "Cycling74" isn't a term I'm familiar with, but it does refer to a multimedia company, and I assumed that you may have downloaded a demo of some software. To investigate this, do a spotlight search (Cmd-Space) on "cycling 74" or even "74" and see what you come up with. If you see some kind of application that fits this, you can delete it.

     

    As for "kext," this relates to your computer - though many users aren't aware of it. Since you may want to fix the kexts on your computer - similar to performing Disk First Aid - you can download Kext Utility http://www.osx86.net/view/2514-latest_kext_utility_10.8_edition.html. It's free, and won't harm your computer.

     

    Post with your results - hopefully positive!

    Soundflower and AmbrosiaSW appear together in kernel panic reports so often that I suspect they may conflict with each other. Both of them modify system audio.

     

    This may not be the sole cause.

    No worries. Hopefully it stays fixed.

    Do you have Ambrosia software installed, something like Wiretap? In some cases, some Ambrosia applications may cause issues. (That's my experience, anyway.)

     

    When I used an Ambrosia application, there was an option that allowed me to uninstall the software. Try doing that now. See if that improves your computer's stability. If it does, you can possibly fix the problem by reinstalling the application later, or deleting it entirely it. If it doesn't - well, I look forward to your post.

    Hmm - I've the same version of the Ambrosia audio driver as you - for use with SnapzXPro - and am having no problems with it. Would really like to know if it was that or the Seagate drivers causing the problem...

  • Poikkeus Level 4 Level 4 (2,775 points)

    It might be a good idea to investigate both. I had to delete SnapzXPro from my system for various reasons (non kernel-oriented); however, the Seagate drivers are listed among the top in your panic report.
