Ever since installing the latest OP system my macbook began to crash 'randomly'. I've spoken to apple on the phone loads of this and followed EVER 'erase and reintall' method given to me. I've even started over agian and manually install Microsfto word and moved some files from my external memory. YET, it still happened within 2 hours of the freshly installed mavericks. What does one do?!

    Next time you MBP crashes, log the kernel panic report and post it:





  • Linc Davis Level 10 Level 10 (173,635 points)

    These instructions must be carried out as an administrator. If you have only one user account, you are the administrator.

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:

    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)

    ☞ In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.

    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.

    In the Console window, select


    (not Diagnostic and Usage Messages) from the log list on the left. If you don't see that list, select

    View Show Log List

    from the menu bar.

    There is a disclosure triangle to the left of the list item. If the triangle is pointing to the right, click it so that it points down. You'll see a list of reports. A panic report has a name that begins with "Kernel" and ends in ".panic". Select the most recent one. The contents of the report will appear on the right. Use copy and paste topost the entire contents—the text, not a screenshot.

    I know the report is long, maybe several hundred lines. Please post all of it anyway.

    ☞ If you don't see any reports listed, but you know there was a panic, you may have chosen Diagnostic and Usage Messages from the log list. ChooseDIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION instead.

    In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.)

    ☞ Please don’t post other kinds of diagnostic report.

    Thanks guys. OK, so here it is.

    You MBP is having GPU issues:




    Bring the MBP to an Apple store genius bar for a definitive evaluation and bring the kernel panic report with you.



  • Linc Davis Level 10 Level 10 (173,635 points)

    You have the MacBookPro6,2, the Edsel of Macs. It may have a logic-board defect covered by this recall.

    Make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store, or go to another authorized service provider, to have the machine tested. The routine hardware diagnostics used by service providers do not detect the fault. There is a specific test for this issue that Apple calls "VST" (for "Video Switching Test.") Ask for it. A "Failed" result means that the fault is present. However, according to reports, some units may pass the test, and yet still be deemed eligible for repair under the program. Your experience may vary.

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

    Note that the recall only applies within three years of purchase. After that, Apple may refuse the service. In that case, you may be quoted a price of about $300 (in the U.S.) for a "depot repair," which involves shipping the unit to a central repair facility and takes about two weeks. For that flat fee, anything found wrong with it should be fixed, not just the logic board.

    The model was discontinued on February 24, 2011, so the recall has nominally ended. Some units may have been sold after that date by Apple as refurbished, or by resellers as new, and they should still be covered.

    Some owners report that their unit was repaired under the program after the deadline had passed. Others report that the repair was covered by the extended warranty from a credit-card issuer. Again, your experience may vary.

    Sometimes the replacement part is also defective, so be prepared for that possibility.

    If it's too late for your unit to be repaired under the program, and you don't want to pay for a new logic board, you may be able to stop the panics by disabling automatic graphics switching. To use the discrete graphics processor, you'll need a third-party utility to switch to it manually.

    If you're dissatisfied with Apple's response, please keep in mind that no one here represents the company or can help with customer-service issues.

    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.
