    yes indeed! They checked my Macbook Pro with a diagnostic program and came to the same conclusion. And within two/three days there was a replacement of the mbp. After that all my problems with kernel panics where solved.



  • Ruud van Asperen Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)



    Youre right .. CUDA driver is not needed... and did not help to prevent crashing of the MacBook Pro. Before I went to get help stupid me,  i made several clean installations. Even swap mem and harddisk.


    Removing of CUDA driver did not help but still youre right.. its not needed.

    Which country are you from?

  • Ruud van Asperen Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)



    Goto a other repearcenter. Its a strange story because they can see if the Macbook Pro needs a replacement within the hour.  First a normal diagnostic, after that they can run a videodiagnostic. When the first goes wel the second would fail (when you have the same problems).  When i read  youre story im very happy with the guys at AIMstore and the supportmembers of Apple in the Netherlands who send me to this repaircenter to check my MacBook Pro.


    I hope the other repearcenter can help you, otherwise come to Rotterdam



    for other to reader, i repeat this statement:

    Hi Alder,


    Thanks for your comment. This panic also happens with clean install.

  • fndtomas Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Hey van Asperen,


    I just had a conversation with the AppleCareHotLine... He informed me that the repair center where I left my MB could not reproduce the error I reported (even though they could see all the entries in the log).


    He said me that it can be caused by a number of things (3th softwares, harddisk, memory, board)


    Well again, the person adviced me again to reinstall Mountain Lion from zero, but now in a external disk ... to try to isolate the problem. I left my computer in the repair center during one week... when they were supposed to test everything... It is hard for us to expend our time doing what they were supposed to do...


    Yeah, it is strange story... and very annoying. I'm leaving this computer to a different repaircenter. Lets see whats happening ... a trip to Rotterdam is not discarted

    If you have ONLY Apple kernel extensions, such as after a clean Install and before adding and third-party software, this error:


    from your kernel panic:

    panic(cpu 2 caller 0xffffff7f8b888c85): NVRM[0/1:0:0]: Read Error

    Indicates a Hardware problem caused by a graphics chip failure.


    With third-party drivers added, it is not clear what is causing the problem. ¿Is it the third-party drivers?

  • fndtomas Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Hi Alder,


    Really great having someone in the chat with better knowlegde than all authorized technicians I talked with....


    I have Mountain Lion installed from zero (clean partitioned disk). Than, supposedly there is no 3-th part drivers installed. The last error contains exactly what you cited, please have a look... Anyhow ... I'm leaving this computer in the repair center again...

    That kernel panic is showing the error that correlates with graphics chip failure:


    panic(cpu 2 caller 0xffffff7f97961c85): NVRM[0/1:0:0]: Read Error


    Later in the panic log, under this heading, non-Apple kexts are listed FIRST, and your listing now shows none as you said.

    When you send your Mac in with lots of third-party stuff installed, the service center needs to find time to do a "clean install" first, to prove that the problem occurs under Mac OS X alone. This also can make some customers angry because they (foolishly) may not have adequate backups and wiping the drive may wipe out their only copy of their data. That does not excuse their inaction, but may help explain why they could not quickly resolve the problem.

  • fndtomas Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I understand perfectly what you say, Mr Alder. I proceded exactly as recommended.


    It seems that the crash is trigged when any load on the graphic card is required. With me, sometimes the simple fact of swipe the finger to call MissionControl is enought to get the BlackScreen. It looks like a Russian Rollet ...


    And against Hardware problem (if is that what's happening) is hard to fight with ... We count only with all other customers that are complaining of the same problem... People should understand that customers just want to do their own work without being annoyded.

  • Ruud van Asperen Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Hello Thomas and Mr. Alder,


    I disagree with you Mr. Alder, because the official test, is done without the use of the OSX off the system. So when they use the test supplied from Apple there is no interaction with the installation on the harddisk, only to store some information. But as you mentionted, and there i support you 100%, its better to make a clean installation and make sure you have backup of youre data. Remove any 3th party software and hardware. Even remove extentions that you have bought and is installed by a official Apple resseler or "genius". Even when youre sure it not cousing that problem. Beter save then sorry! and you don't want a discussion with a "Genius".

  • fndtomas Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Hi Mr. van Asperen,


    Just to give you an info about the end of the story.

    I finally got the problem fixed: Logic board replaced. So far no crashes.



  • Ruud van Asperen Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)



    Nice to hear that the problem is solved....!

    Thx for informing me!




  • fndtomas Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Does this mean that I need a new motherboard as well? In the Amsterdam iCenter technical support shop they ran a diagnose but it didn't show anything. The computer has been restored many times since. It crashes less often since the last clean install, but it still happens regularly. What can I do to fix it?
