This is the first time I've posted on this forum. Ever since I've upgraded to Mountain Lion macbook seems to crash and restart over the simplest tasks. Especially after opening certain applications, websites like youtube and ebay, and watcing videos. It happens whether it's plugged in or not. The fans are loud and spin at 200rpm. I've tried almost everything besides a clean install and a genius visit. I posted the latest crash report below. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You have the MacBookPro6,2, the Edsel of Macs. It may be covered by this program:

    MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010): Intermittent black screen or loss of video

    Make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store to have the machine tested.

    Print the first page of the panic report and bring it with you.

    Back up all data on the internal drive(s) before you hand over your computer to anyone. If privacy is a concern, erase the data partition(s) with the option to write zeros* (do this only if you have at least two complete, independent backups, and you know how to restore to an empty drive from any of them.) Don’t erase the recovery partition, if present.

    *An SSD doesn't need to be zeroed.
