    You have the MacBookPro6,2, the Edsel of Macs. It may be covered by this program:

    MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010): Intermittent black screen or loss of video

    Make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store to have the machine tested. The routine hardware diagnostics used by service providers may not detect the fault. There is a specific test for this issue.

    Print the first page of the panic report, and the support page linked above, and bring them with you.

    Note that the replacement program only applies within three years of purchase. If you wait beyond that date, Apple may refuse the service. In that case, you'll be quoted a price of about $300 (in the U.S.) for a depot repair.

    Back up all data on the internal drive(s) before you hand over your computer to anyone. If privacy is a concern, erase the data partition(s) with the option to write zeros* (do this only if you have at least two complete, independent backups, and you know how to restore to an empty drive from any of them.) Don’t erase the recovery partition, if present.

    *An SSD doesn't need to be zeroed.

    You may be able to stop the panics by disabling automatic graphics switching in the Energy Saver preference pane, but that's not a solution.



    Most likely, the logic board will be replaced. Sometimes the replacement part is also defective, so be prepared for that possibility.

    Thanks a bunch for the response.  Took it to the Mac store and the hardware tests don't reveal an issue.  The guy said it's probably the logic board.  It appears the panic is occurring during a graphics change.  It happens during the use of any program.  I'll try the work around to see if it helps, but I'll send it in soon.  I have work that needs to be done ASAP!  Oh well!   Thanks again!!
