I'm working away on my MBP when suddenly the screen blacks out and the operating system crashes instantly or shortly afterwards. The blackouts occur while using different programs, although I have a feeling that they are more frequent with graphic intensive software like Photoshop. After restart, the system is back to normal but it's not long until the next black out obliterates my unsaved work.

Below is one of the crash reports for the experts here that can actually make sense of them. I'm only gleaning from the gibberish that the crash probably occurred because of the GPU, Intel HD Graphics 4000 1024 MB in my case, suddenly becoming afraid of seeing my face and deciding to black out. Or does "panic" mean something else in this case ;-)

What's going on here? Does anybody have more of a clue than me?

Your MacBook Pro has two graphics cards. One is integrated with the motherboard ( the Intel HD Graphics 4000) and one is a separate desecrate card that is connected to the motherboard (the NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M.)

The Intel "card" is a low power graphics controller that is good for most display tasks, while the NVIDIA card is a more powerful card that gets used by more demanding applications (like Photoshop, VMware, etc)

It looks to me like you are suffering from a GPU panic on the NVIDIA card, perhaps when the computer switches from one card to the other - or due to the card overheating or hitting a bad memory segment. I am not excellent at reading these crash reports.

I recommend you take your machine back to the folks at Apple who can tell you what is required to swap out the offending graphics card.

  • My MBP really does seem to be a lemon. This is the 2nd hardware problem in a few years. :-( – SeanJ Sep 30 '16 at 19:24
  • How do you know that it's the NVIDIA not say the internal Intel card or the shared RAM? – SeanJ Oct 2 '16 at 7:52
