    MacBook Pro Video Card Update 1.0 (Released Oct 24, 2011):


    I'm at work right now, so I can't install it, but please everyone else try it.

  • Keonar Level 1 Level 1

    Seems to be working so far, I am unable to reporduce the photo booth trigger. Ill see how hot I can force the video card.

  • Marz Macc Level 1 Level 1

    Nice to see they were really working at it lol nice. Took forever but greatful. Am happy for you mid 2010 users

  • UCLAMacConvert Level 1 Level 1

    Okay fingers crossed. First reboot and couldn't get it to trigger with Photobooth. Launched Powerpoint 2010 and loaded some large PPTs which had randomly caused crashes when I quick-scrolled through the slides. So far so good.


    I used Software update which weighed in at about 52MB but I also downloaded the full installer from the KB article which was 70MB just in case. So far so good. I had good luck before with other software updates (.1 and .2) but it didn't last into the second reboot. Will reboot now and see if the fix stays!


    Knocking on wood...

  • derBonsaii Level 1 Level 1

    haha i still got crashes!! ...


    just funny ...

  • Madam Level 1 Level 1

    I can report the same. After installing the update I cannot get Photo Booth to cause a crash. I have other things to do now, but I will report later after I've had a chance to do further testing.

  • Marz Macc Level 1 Level 1

    Well guess its just a 1.0 for real lol apple might still be working at it

  • ulanbator Level 1 Level 1

    So far so good. No crashes with PhotoBooth. I'll keep watching.

    A word from Apple about the cause of a problem would be nice.

  • derBonsaii Level 1 Level 1

    they should work at it for more than 5 months ...


    i reported it i don't know how many times under 10.6.8 =(

  • UCLAMacConvert Level 1 Level 1

    Okay three manual, user-initiated restarts later, and I've not been able to reproduce the dreaded BSOD! I've even turned Dynamics Graphics Switching back on (and yes, I did remember to turn off gfxcardstatus). Keep in mind for me I only started seeing BSODs upon upgrading to Lion. Never had one in all versions of Snow Leopard including 10.6.8.


    For those who have reported the fix didn't work (and so far it looks like only 1 person in the thread) did you have BSODs before upgrading to Lion? If so, then I think you may have truly faulty hardware.


    Also, I can tell my NVidia is engaged because the transitions in Photobooth Effects are really smooth. When I was forcing Integrated graphics they were significantly choppier. Looks like Apple finally got to the root cause.

  • derBonsaii Level 1 Level 1

    okay ...


    with 10.6.3 i got no BSODs, i had the first BSODs with 10.6.8 ... =(


    Hmmm i'll call Apple tomorrow (Switzerland) ...


    i'll hope that they can help me ...

  • rrossi Level 1 Level 1

    With SL 10.6.8 + Lion 10.7.2 crashes on booting and in normal working.

    After today´s fix no crashes on Lion anymore....but I will not move back to SL to check also ;-))

  • dodoking Level 1 Level 1

    Ok, I'm trying out the update. So far it works like a charm. I switched to Dynamic Switching, turned off GFXCardStatus, tried PhotoBooth with several effects, tried to put my laptop to sleep then back on, and no BSOD!


    For the records, I only experienced BSODs since updating to Lion, never experienced with Snow Leopard.


    Fingers crossed, good luck guys!

  • ulanbator Level 1 Level 1

    well, I'm still getting BSODs on Lion after installing the update... After the first reboot I was unable to reproduce it with PhotoBooth. Then after some time it just crashed on an idle system. After rebooting it crashed almost immediately as I was to trying to send the panic report to Apple

    What a mess, Apple!
