Every day when I am working, or if I attempt to play a movie using my Mac, it will restart. It seems like every time it is about to restart the fan starts spinning pretty heavily and then it will crash and restart and put up a report. How do I fix this?

That looks like you are getting a kernel panic when the machine is attempting to do something to the power management, which would correspond with your report of fan noise before the crash.

First step would be to reset the System Management Controller

Instructions for doing that are in this Apple support note :-

Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)

Then try running Apple Hardware Test by rebooting with the D down - details are here :- http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1509

Then check to see if the hard drive will verify - a bad drive could have corrupted the System.

If that doesn't work I'd try running off a System on an external drive for a day or two to see if it is a corrupt system on a good hard drive.


It seems that your GPU is dead or faulty. Try to use an app called gfxCardstatus and switch to Intel graphics. Then play a movie and see the issue is still there or gone.
