I am using a a MBP 13 mid-2010 (MC375LL/A) with the following characteristics

MacBookPro 7,1
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.6GHz
RAM: 8Gb (2x4Gb in replacement of the 2x2Gb)
HDD: WD Blue 500Go 5400trs/min (in replacement of 320Go)
GPU: Nvidia 320M 256Mo
OSX: Maverick 10.9.1

Use: office software applications + Multimedia + scientific computing and development (one raeson for changing the RAM)

Since the middle of december 2013, the MBP crashes many times a day. It stops by many differents ways:

  • black, white, blue, orange or green screen and freezes (I need to hold power button to shutdown);
  • come back to logon screen;
  • reboot (black text on gray brackground screen);
  • screen with many multicolor lines;
  • just freeze (I need to hold power button to shutdown);

These problems happen with battery (i need to change it (670 cycles)) but also with magsafe. When the MBP crashs, I am not doing special thing (sometimes just on website, sometimes on youtube watching video...) but it is very randomly.

Sometimes I can obtain a Kernel Panic but sometimes not.

You can find at the following link the last kernel panic I obtained here

So I am looking for one solution to deal with this problem.

Thank you in advance

  • This sounds like a hardware error. I suspect your machine will need to take a trip to an Apple store (or other Apple repair place). – Olly Hodgson Feb 3 '14 at 14:38
  • @OllyHodgson You confirm that I am thinking. The Apple Store is not close to me therefore I am looking if I can find a solution before I will go to the store. – Guuk Feb 3 '14 at 14:46
  • In complement, I thought about a RAM problem (because I changed it with non-Apple RAM module). But I have tried the both module on both so-dimm slots and I obtained the same crashs.... – Guuk Feb 3 '14 at 14:56
  • Do you have Apple Care? – Rob Feb 3 '14 at 14:57
  • support.apple.com/kb/PH11342 might be helpful? – Olly Hodgson Feb 3 '14 at 15:00
