I have started experiencing random crashes from my 2010 Macbook Pro 15"

It has not symptoms before it crashes, and it doesn't happen on a timely basis but it does happen once every few days, sometimes it will happen multiple times within the hour.

Here is the crash report from the latest incident:

Is there some loose hardware or something?

EDIT: It has happened again and here is the corresponding crash report: http://pastebin.com/hmDHuUu6

  • This particular crash log shows this: BSD process name corresponding to current thread: Preview. Do other crashes occur just with Preview or with other apps, too? – IconDaemon Oct 17 '15 at 20:10
  • i dont know which app they occur with, as i usually have about 2-3 preview windows open and 10-15 chrome tabs split across 5 desktops – spetty flakson Oct 18 '15 at 6:14

It sound like you have the same logic board issue that I have. There was a batch of faulty logic boards in the mid 2010 MacBook Pro. Apple replaced the Logic boards in faulty MBPs free of charge at the time, but unfortunately their offer only lasted for MBPs reported to them within 3 years of purchase. Like yourself, my MBP only started showing the problem after the 3 years were up.

https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4152749?tstart=0

The issue is due to the automatic switching between the intel GPU and the Nvidia GPU.

The only way I've found to live with the issue is to install gfxCardStatus and lock my graphics card to the intel GPU. Others have a little more success and are able to lock their GPU to the Nvidia chip and suffer the battery life drop. Mileage seems to vary with the solution.

You could try contacting Apple and beg them to fix the logic board for you as it is a known issue, but I've no idea how you'll get on as their replacement program ended a while back.

The gfx card status will only work with this version 1.8.1 https://software.com/mac/apps/gfxcardstatus/1.8.1
