    Everyone interested in such things can join in here to think of something.

    i've talked to the apple support on the phone, and i'm taking the computer for some more TS4088 testing at the assistance.

    Hello everyone,

     

    I've been had serious troubles with my 2010 MBP i7 2,66GHZ for a while, random crashes every hour, beachball of death etc. I finally figured out what turned out to be the problem with my system.

     

    Turns out there was a problem with my SSD (that I installed myself, so not from the Apple Store). I installed a Crucial M4 256GB and for a year or so everything was sailing smooth and then it all of a sudden it just kept crashing. Tried a clean install, etc., nothing helped. Now it appears my Crucial M4 was at fault here, luckily there is a firmware update out there for the M4 for this known bug that causes hourly crashes after the M4 has been on for 5128 hours or more (in total, not in one session). Something with faulty S.M.A.R.T counter or whatever, anyway, I ran the firmware update and for me everything is now back to normal.

     

    So I don't know if any people out here have a Crucial M4 in their system, but this might be worth looking into...

    I got my MBP 2.66GHz from the Apple store. The Logic Board was replaced. I was also asked to pay $500+ since my MBP is out of the 2 year mark (by a month). The genius who diagonized told it would be free but the store manager had other ideas when I went in to pickup. Another weird thing was that they never called me as promised. I had to make 4 calls in 2 days to know whats going on. The second time I called, the tech asked me permission for doing a clean install since their extended tests show that this LB isn't faulty though it showed a big red notification when we tested it in store. Had to give them a piece of my mind to get the LB replaced.

     

    My experiences so far : The MBP is much cooler now, fans are at the desired rpm (1999~2001). Battery is doing slightly better as well. I initially thought of getting it replaced but with less than 400 cycles on it, I thought I should wait some more.

     

    Just for gigs - I replaced my dvd drive with another SSD but put DVD drive back for the repair and lost a screw in the process. They noticed that but still went ahead with the repair probably thinking that I would be paying the $500+. He then warned me saying even if the LB has problems again, I won't get service even within 90 days.

     

    I am hoping I won't have more problems with black screen, but it may be a little early to hope such!

     

    Good luck all and please don't give up. Get it replaced and go to corporate since this is not how I want a $2200+ worth of MBP, not even if it is about 2 years since its release already.

    Bravo, man.

    Lot of references to Video/Graphics drivers. So NVIDIA it is I believe.

     

    In the logs, it should show you how many panics (KP) you had since last report and stuff. I used that number as abase since that clearly showed that I am suffering from this issue for a long time now. Print out a copy of TS4088 and walk in to the store (make an appointment first).

     

    If you are denied service due to warranty lapse or sth, get the name of the tech, ID number of some kind, a visting card and write to corporate.

    What's this red notification you saw?

    Did you get to see him running the TS4088 test?

     

    In the first assistance i went, the tech guy asked me to do clean install too. Because, he said, there were no problems with the computer. So he erased the whole thing, and i can still easily reproduce the problem.

     

    Now, i found out (got evidence) he only convinced me to do that because then i had to pay $ for the install service. Since "only testing" would be free of charge. Pretty sad.

  • 2,692. Re: Lion randomly crashes - black screen
    kkiran Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes, I saw him run the diagnostic test. It passed the normal tests but then he had a special test for this particular issue (since I showed him the Panic report and the TS4088 article). The red notification clearly said that the video test failed which prompted for the Logic Board replacement eventually.

     

    The tech also suggested me a fresh install for which I replied that I already did a clean install of Lion.

     

    Paying $$ for install service? If you are in the USA, I am pretty sure that shouldn't be the case for this particular issue.

  • 2,693. Re: Lion randomly crashes - black screen
    jvjv Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    So the diagnostic test doesn't take much time to run. That's interesting.

    And the guy told you the LB was ok even though you saw the test yourself. He's got a lot of nerve to do that.

     

    Didn't know in the US the install service is free, unfortunately that's not the case for me...

    My macbook has begun crashing with more frequency, it's happened 4 or 5 times today. Anything in this crash report I can point a genious to and get this fixed?

    I'm having exactly the same issue, is there any other way to solve this other than replacing the LB? This problem occur even I'm just surfing website using Google Chrome.

     

    It is pretty annoying.

    Hi everyone! I'm having the same exact problems. I have a mid 2010 MacBook Pro and its always freezing! It was perfectly fine with Snow leapord and Lion just messed up everything. I hope Mountain Lion will fix this. But for now what I've been doing is under energy saver disable automatic graphics switching and then BOOM my computer works how it should and i have no problems, but my battery dies super fast now . I hope that apple fixes this SOON!

    ML is not fixed this issues, I'm using the ML GM but the problem still persist and i felt it happen more often compared to Lion, seriously is apple doing anything for this issues?

    It is normal to have crashes, it is designed for that to happen.LoL....

    I had close to 20 crashes since wednesday and I am still trying every now and then to turn on.

     

    I am posting through windows pc. My mbp just can't stay functional for 10 mins!!! It crashed at every opportunity, log in window, mail, finder, safari, firefox, vlc, itunes, terminal etc...

    happens here. significantly more through the time. while it used to be like once a week, I did not pay much attention (since I have lost my warranty already) . But now, 5-10 times a day... it's a pain in the ***. I don't even get the panic log screen, the computer just goes black screen.

     

    it's annoying since the computer is totally OK and works great, but if this happens and you don't save your work...not to mention the booting might get like 5 min afterwards, if parallels and bunch of other apps were open.

     

    I don't really want to invest 500 + EUR into a 2 year old machine, but I don't want to scrap it either. maybe sell it for parts?
