Question:

Question: USB MOUSE USE CAUSING CRASHES?

OSX 10.13.4 I have repeated crashes when using my USB Mouse. I can be clicking on a you tube video and the mouse freezes that the Mac Crashes. I an be using my Mouse in Word, and it crashes. I can just move it and click on an Icon, and it crashes? This new OSX is very unstable as I have also had numerous crashes from various reasons and have re-installed this ISX Version more than any I have had since the days of Leesa. I feel Apple is using us as a Beta Test group? All I know is I back up daily now as I know the next crash is just around the corner. Please fix the system Apple?

Answer:
compressed PTE 0xfffffeb6638b1598 0x7d00000000000000 has extra bits 0x1d00000000000000: corrupted?


PTE is page table entry, which is used in managing virtual memory for each process and the kernel.


Bits in the PTE were corrupted. The page tables are stored in RAM. I suspect failing RAM.


You have 3rd party RAM, which is very common to have failures

Memory Module: BANK 0/DIMM0, 4 GB, DDR3, 1067 MHz, 0x802C, 0x31364A5353353132363448592D3147314131

Memory Module: BANK 1/DIMM0, 4 GB, DDR3, 1067 MHz, 0x802C, 0x31364A5353353132363448592D3147314131

Memory Module: BANK 0/DIMM1, 4 GB, DDR3, 1067 MHz, 0x0198, 0x393930353432382D3030352E4130324C4620

Memory Module: BANK 1/DIMM1, 4 GB, DDR3, 1067 MHz, 0x0198, 0x393930353432382D3030352E4130324C4620

0x31364A5353353132363448592D3147314131-> hex2ascii -> 16JSS51264HY-1G1A1 -> Google says this is Micron RAM

0x393930353432382D3030352E4130324C4620 -> hex2ascii -> 9905428-005.A02LF -> Google says this is Kingston RAM


Things you can try:

  • Put the original Apple RAM back in your Mac and see if the problem goes away.
  • Remove one DIMM at a time and see if eventually when one of the 4 is removed the problem goes away
  • Try running Rember overnight and see if it can find a problem. It may not, as PTEs are kept in kernel memory and if the bad RAM bits are always in kernel address space, Rember will not be able to exercise them


<http://www.kelleycomputing.net/rember/>

.

Quit as many apps and background tasks as you can (such as menu bar items) so more RAM is available for testing. Booting into Safe mode <http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1564> can also free up more RAM for testing, by not loading any 3rd party additions you may have installed.

A) does the mouse have its own 3rd party USB Mouse driver? That could be the cause.


B) A broken USB device or just a broken USB cable can cause systems to panic.


1)

Try booting into Safe mode

<http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1564>

This will not load any 3rd party additions, it will load some more conservative Apple drivers (may cause screen flicker), and it will clear some kernel caches (a cache is saved data in a form that can speed up a program, but is totally redundant to the original source, and thus can be safely cleared). Booting into Safe mode is just an experiment, but can frequently eliminate any 3rd party interference, or a cached item out-of-sync with the world. (Verify Safe mode via Applications -> Utilities -> System Information -> Software -> Boot Mode -> Safe vs Normal)


2)

If you have kernel panic reports, please post a few of the most recent.

Kernel Panic reports: Finder -> Go -> Go to Folder -> /Library/Logs/DiagnosticReportsUser uploaded file

Nope! It’s all Apple. I use nothing but Apple products. I’ve just done another clean install and no crashes.....yet. I have run Disk first aid and malware bytes, no issues shown? I’ve unplugged all usb and repluged them in, but the mouse is Bluetooth. I’ve had the pointer in a you tube video, the mouse and screen froze, then crash. When I try to reset the PRam the system defaults to reinstall? Quite bizarre. But hay! This OSX is the buggiest ive ever seen. I have to reinstall about once a week. On next crash, I’ll post the results. Won’t be long😣

My confusion about USB comes from your saying

USB Mouse use Causing Crashes?

But if you have a Bluetooth mouse, then USB is not the issue.


If you could also try Safe mode, as I and seventy one have suggested.


As well try the SMC reset seventy one has suggested


Also if you could please post the EtreCheck output I requested earlier.


Oh yea

Please fix the system Apple?

This is a user-to-user technical support forum. You are not talking to Apple here.


Also if you are running Yosemite, you Mac would be out of warranty and most likely beyond Apple Care, so if there are hardware repairs needed you would have to pay for them. If you think it is Apple software, you would need to upgrade to a newer macOS release, as updates for Yosemite have stopped.

My mistake, I’m running 10.13.4 High Sierra. I unplugged the USB external add on as an afterthought it may have affected the blue tooth? But I will do a complete reset unplugging and restarting with PRAm clearing. Normally, when I have done that it goes straight into reinstall system, which is bizarre. I have tried safe mode and it starts that way, in that mode, I run disk first aid and the system freezes up. Then I have to reinstall the system again and all’s well for several days until it stars acting up again. My system is in a SSD drive, so my trusted Disk Warrior won’t wirk on it. Disk warrior has tried to get the code from Apple to work with the new file structure on the SSD but of course, Apple won’t share that yet. Anyway, I’ll try the suggestions and send the error report on the next crash. I may find the last one in my crash reporter and send you that. Thanks all!

Wow! What a comprehensive reply and tons of info. I agree, I will just replace all the memory as I never put it in, I got this as a refurbished model after my IMac screen failed. So, I got the memory someone else put in. I usually use Crucial as they are great. And Bob, I want to thank you for your in-depth reply, it’s very much appreciated.
