Yesterday, my computer screen randomly went black, then loaded up a white screen with text saying it restarted because of a problem and to press a key to continue booting up. It happened once, no big deal. However, today this problem has happened again, and every time it tried to reboot, it would restart again and again. I eventually had to just manually shut off the computer by holdign the power button and proceed to turn it back on. The computer only works for a short amount of time now before getting stuck in a boot loop.


Any idea why this is happening? I am running OSX Mavericks, by the way.

    I'm having the same issue. Really starting to annoy me now! Luckily it's quick at starting back up but I'm pretty annoyed that this is occuring as it's an expensive new machine!

    Kam Banwait,


    I don't know about the original poster, but if your machine is new you should take it to your local Apple Store or AASP and have them diagnose and fix the problem.

    I'm planning on doing this .. I've just got to back up all my stuff AGAIN after moving everything across from my old MBP that I've sold. Quite a big pain in the A** but I guess it's going to happen to new machines with new 'parts'

  • Kam Banwait Level 1 (0 points)

    Finally got a chance to go to a store and get the machine swapped out. Was working fine for a week and now I'm getting the same issue. I beleive it's an issue with software or the new OS. I'd like to downgrade to M.Lion but I feel that's going to be more hassle than it's woth. Any one had any update on this at all? Here's my crash report too:

    Did you resolve the situation?


    Although i'm not stuck in a crash loop, i'm getting the same kernel panics as you.


    Same here:





  • Kam Banwait Level 1 (0 points)

    To be honest, I've not had any random crashes or reboots for a very long time now.


    I've also not restarted my machine for a lont time either ( a complete shut down/restart ) either.


    "uptime" , in Terminal, tells me my mac has been on for : (time uptime was asked 14:22) up 7 days, 21:42, 2 users, load averages: 1.83 1.60 1.53

  • spw_la Level 1 (0 points)

    The above crash report, as well as most crash reports, list the cause of the report in the line:


    "BSD process name corresponding to current thread: firefox"


    This is the cause if this specific crash and  correlated report but may not be the root cause of the crash, but removing the listed cause and attempting to re-create the crash with the listed cause no longer running or probably best if it isn't even installed any longer on the system.  If the issue persists, when your system crashes refer to the newly created crash report to discover the new culprit and repeat the process until the issue no longer persists or until you reach a system or hardware error, at which point I would recommend contacting AppleSupport, if not before.


    Hope this helps.
