I'm suddenly getting this constant crash. The screen fades slowly from top to bottom (as if a curtain was being pulled down) and I get the message "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button for several seconds or push the Restart button." It started happening whenever I would shut down the computer. Then whenever I tried to restart it the same thing. I have an external hard drive with a full system install, so I booted from that and the same thing happened at various stages when I was trying to diagnose the problem. This leads me to believe it must be hardware, not software, related. I pulled the last crash report and here's what it says (along with the computer's profile). Any ideas on what's going on would be greatly appreciated.

    Was your data ever migrated from a PowerPC Mac?
    Does this error happen when the external hard drive is not connected?
    Have you run the hardware test that came with your computer's installation discs?

    Was your data ever migrated from a PowerPC Mac?
    No. All software, programs and data were installed directly on this computer. Never migrated from anything else.

    Does this error happen when the external hard drive is not connected?
    Yes.

    Have you run the hardware test that came with your computer's installation discs?
    I just ran it and got this error:

    4MEM/1/40000000:020a2698

    I than ran the "extended" test and got a similar error:
    4MEM/2/40000000:0342a698

    Would the "MEM" imply an error with the memory?
  • a brody Level 9 (65,765 points)
    Yes. See my FAQ* on bad RAM:

    http://www.macmaps.com/badram.html

    Either the vendor that you bought the RAM from needs to replace it, or Apple needs to replace their own.

    Don't know if you have sorted this problem out, but I was having exactly the same problem as you and was about to tear my hair out / go back to PCs. However, after 3 x trips to the Genius bar it was suggested that it might be a RAM issue (last attempt I felt). Apple offered to sell me 2 x 1gb RAM sticks for about £140 but I got 2 x 2gb RAM sticks from Crucial (£40 delivered), fitted them today and so far all the apps (like iDVD and iMovie) are working as normal.
    I think this may be worth looking at.
    Hope this helps - I've never posted on a forum before but I was almost in tears with it all so I feel compelled to help others!

    okay, so this very same thing is happening to my mbp. the problem is that mine doesnt run long enough for me to run that hardware test before it freezes....
    I love my mbp, but this is getting quite frustrating. so, seeing how the very same thing is happening, should I go to the Apple store and tell them that it is probably bad ram? I use my computer for school and cant be without it very long. is this a common problem?
