    Hi! is anybody else having error with the HD after this issue? I had my logic board replaced but my HD is throwing me errors when I verify with the disk utility, so have to repair but happens again and again... and this all started with the kernel panics.

     

    Please post here if you are experimenting this too..

     

    thanks!

    alekb-

     

    the important feature is Disk Utility is ( Repair Disk ). If that gives you problems, they are serious ones.

     

    ( Repair Permissions ) always throws error messages, and you can ignore them unless they appear in RED.

    I have the same problem as everybody else here. I have a MacBook Pro mid 2010. My scree turns suddently black and I have to force the computer to turn of by pressing the start buttten. This happens every 15 min.

    Not every Kernel Panic is the same. Some posters on this thread have different problems. If you have the panic-reason listed in the title, you should go to the genius Bar with this article printed out on paper in your hand:

     

    TS4088- MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010): Intermittent black screen or loss of video

     

    To determine if you have this same kernel panic, use this article:

     

    Mac OS X: How to log a kernel panic

     

    If yours is NOT:

    NVRM[0/1:0:0]: Read Error 0x00000100

     

    then cut and paste one here for Readers to look at and help determine the cause, or start a new thread all your own with a catchy title and paste it there.

    Hi! yes this is the problem, There is an error in RED so it says for me to repair it from the "Recovery Partition" so I reset my mac and press ALT, by the disk utility form the other partition I repair the disk, and then restart. Now when I run the test there is no more errors, there is a GREEN text about that, fine. But in a week o less, happens again and again, even the system feels slower.

     

    So, I would like to know if other people is having this problem? because all started with the mountain lion installation, and the kernel panics too, after changing the logic board no more kernel panics but the HD seems to be damage because of this.

     

    thanks!

    If you need to ( Repair Disk ) frequently, that could be an indication that your Hard drive is having Hardware problems. This sometimes leads to the drive dying suddenly.

     

    If you do not have good backups, make a good backup immediately.

    thanks for your replay! yes there is a hardware problem, I'm not going to loose my info because I have backups, so if my mac "exploites now" that's not a big problem jajaja!

     

    Today I picked it form the service, and they told my about other cases when ML damage HDs (hardware because of overheating), so they want to change the HD for a new one and install the system "garantee" by them themselves, for a considerable amount of money. So it doesn't seems to be fair, why Apple sell their system online if, even following all instructions carefully, this has to be made by technicians to be "garantee". I'm not stupid! I installed all kind of OS in my life, without breaking a single pice of hardware, so now is not only the price of the OS, you also have to pay for the installation of the OS to be "garantee", and in my case for a new HD and the installation of the HD... ah and diagnostics too, that's ridiculous!

     

    but I can't forgot the mac was a failed one, and all problems stared with the update form SL to ML, the Kernel Panics, and HD problems too, just annoying this new ML (don't even say it's complete name! shhh)

     

    bye!

    And the strangest thing this technichian said to me: that I can keep the HD for store information without problem, but not to run the OS, so is really damage? am I that paranoid? jajaja

    If your car gets a flat tire, buying a new car will DEFINITELY fix the problem. Guaranteed!

     

    --------

     

    My approach would be to make a second backup, then erase the drive and security erase, Zero all data.

     

    This operation erases Everything AND tells the drive controller to substitute spare blocks (that it has in reserve) for any blocks found bad after Zeroing. The process take a few hours, but if it completes without errors, your drive has 100 percent good blocks again.

     

    Another alternative is to just keep using it, and buy a drive to replace the one inside your Mac when it fails. If you buy an external enclosure as well, you could install a new copy of Mac OS X on it and be ready if the old one fails.

    Basically I'm with you on this, but there are some nuances.

    1) Special zones of drive will not be affected by this method. Like partition tables and so on. They will benefit just from HD internal bad blocks remapping methods - and here comes 2:

    2) on lowest level block substitution list have limited length - so if there are too much bad blocks - they just can't be substituted with good ones

    dmdimon-

     

    There are a finite number of spares. At some point, the drive may indeed run out. If this occurs, the message back from erase disk will be "Initialization Failed!"

     

    Also, if more than 10 blocks are substituted in one pass, you may get "Initialization failed!" Whether you decide to run another pass is a delicate judgement call.

     

    Google has found (over an enormous sample of their drives) that most drives that develop more than one Bad Block that is spared out but the drive is left in service will be determined to be "BAD" (Bad enough to warrant replacement) within six months.

     

    This brings up the possibility that a drive running out of spares is becoming inherently unreliable, and should either be moved to light duty service (second backup drive) or retired to a long life of propping open doors.

    Thought I give an update on this from my experience

     

    After visiting the Apple Store twice with no solution and panics pretty much every day, I went for a third time, prepared with all the printouts (again) and got the logicboard issue diagnosed within 5 minutes (first running the Apple System Test then the Apple Video Test). Big red "FAILED" with "replace MLB". They ordered a replacement and got it fixed and no panics so far...

     

    I talked to the store manager about the whole experience and he pretty much said that the Geniuses have their protocol (and standard test suite) that they have to follow. Even if I bring them printouts and pointers to support and repair articles they tend to ignore me, since they don't trust any of the information out there (not quite his words, but that's how it came across). With my 3rd appointment, the first genius that looked at it pretty much ignored me too and started the default suite of tests - luckily another genius was standing next to him and said "those are the 2010 MBP - you have to run the VST on it", which the 2nd guy did when the 1st one stepped out. So the only conclusion that I took away was - let them run their system tests and diagnostics suite and talk to you about reinstalling MacOS and blame it on your software. At the end, show printouts of the KB article and reference the OP procedure that was mentioned and ask them to run AST and then VST. This produced the error message. For this error it's a rather fast test (5min), so checking the computer in to run tests in the back won't help (at least in my case, since they didn't run the appropriate tests anyway, despite claiming they did). If that doesn't get anywhere, finish up with the genius and talk to the manager about it. For me 3/4 didn't know anything about this issue, wouldn't run the required tests and wouldn't be convinced to do otherwise by me - only another genius that knew about it was able to get it solved.

    I've been having this issue for a couple of months now, with my MBP spontaneously going into panic and rebooting sometimes multiple times a day. Took it to the Apple store where it was diagnosed with a bad video card, however, in my case this repair was going to cost me $900 due to the fact that I'd replaced the HDD on my own earlier. So I decided to live with it.

     

    At any rate, I just installed gfxCardStatus, and set it up to force everything to use the integrated GPU only. So far, this is working GREAT. In the past, working with iPhoto for more than about 5 minutes would almost always cause a panic, but that seems to have ben cleaned up. Fantastic!

     

    I'm not sure with the limitations are of using integrated GPU only, but so far, I'm certainly happy to live with them!

     

    I would be intersting to know if there is a lower level way to shut down the NVidia GPU, perhaps through  BIOS switch, but in the meantime, gfxCardStatus seems to be working.

    Unwise. like instead repairing car you switched off 4 cylinders of 6 total and it no more gives you strange sounds during drive.

    Close; but no ciger. More like it no more gives you fatal explosions during drive... to put the wisdom into perspective.
