In the System log when filtering for iPhoto I see a bunch of this sort of thing and have no clue as to what it may or may not mean:

I've run Disc Repair from recovery partition recently but suspect I may need to revisit that.


My next step I suppose is also to reinstall the OS from recovery partition. Does that wipe user data? Does it replace user settings and logins etc?


Following that all that is left is reformat, reinstall OS, and replace user files from backup.


I've been trying to learn from all the input in this valuable thread. Manhy thanks to all. The common ground points to my GeForce card, anyone else with the 130 out there?


What am I missing? Anything?


Thanks again for the shared knowledge!

    I think you are on the right track. It does look bad for your graphics chip.


    Re-Installing Mac OS X on a drive without pre-existing flaws will not overwrite User files. But it would be prudent to:


    • Have good backups anyway.


    • Run Disk Utility ( Repair Disk ) as a precaution. ( Verify disk ) will suffice Provided it does not find any faults to be repaired.



    What have I missed?

    Yours is an iMac and most of the rest on this thread are MacBook Pro or Mac Pro.

  • CookieDuster Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    Even though MacPro is in the name of the thread I overlooked the obvious difference that I'm on an Imac (and one monitor).


    All indications are that I'm still looking at same sort of NVidia card/driver conflict. What I don't understand is "why now?" I did have issues with display in the past, thought resolved, now everything points to iphoto conflict.


    Will continue to follow along here.

  • Mr.Oddball Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    <Anyone tried with the latest webdrivers for geforce cards?




    I will be testing this during the week, to see if it resolves the issue, I've got a lot of mxed 2009 and 2010 mac pros most of them with dual 120 cards, hopefully this works so I can continue deploying 10.8.4 throughout the organization.

  • Grant Bennet-Alder Level 9 Level 9 (51,675 points)

    Please post your results with those new drivers. Users are desperate for a soulution to the "multiple NVIDIA cards in 10.8.4" problem.

  • jolago Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Hi, i´m on mac pro 4.1 (2009) whith nvidia FX4800.... Running osx 10,8,4 and new nvidia drivers makes the mac crash on final cut video editing, or directly some kernel panics...


    Restore 10,8,3 and the nvidia native osx driver all works fine again. GPU driver version is actually 304,10,65f03 and Cuda 5,0,59


    Thanks time machine... it´s easy to restore.


    No thanks apple for doing things difficult to people who only need to work.


    Please, don´t put new versions of osx if they are not well and complete tested.
