My mid-2010 MacBook Pro keeps rebooting after upgrade to Mountain Lion.

The crashes are happening in different applications but seems to happen most often when scrolling inside of an email or Safari, opening iPhoto, or opening a video from Youtube.

Not sure who can review the panic report and offer assistance.

  • I have the same issue! I found your thread on google by searching by "91C40470-82BA-329A-A9D7-4C70F28275FD", wonder what it is. Have you discovered anything else regarding our problem? please keep the question thread up to date! :)

  • Does the problem still occur after you install the 10.8.2 Mountain Lion update?

  • If you have 5 to 10 instanced of this happening - it would be pretty easy to look over the logs and see what might be causing the panic. Are you looking for a canonical article on how to debug kernel panics? Apple is the holder of the source code to the browser and the OS - so the "canonical" solution is to file a bug report with them and/or isolate the issue by reinstalling the OS and not installing plug in / third party software if that is contributing to the issue. The big question, is can you reproduce the panic and make it happen within 5 minutes of trying to cause a crash?

  • I'm also experiencing the same kernel panic on my mid-2010 MBP. It took me a few months to get around to upgrading to Mountain Lion but now this is driving me crazy. I'm on 10.8.2. Has anybody found a fix for this?

From the log above, it seems like it's graphics related. There is also a thread on Apple's community forums confirming that suspicion.

It looks like the graphics chip is not functioning as intended. They suggested looking into getting it replaced. I know this is not an immediate solution, but I hope it narrows down the issue further.

    As a kernel developer, I would agree with that assessment. :-) It makes sense that this happens in Safari and iPhoto, as those are known to use GPU acceleration. I assume all firmware and OSX updates have been installed; if so, the hardware is likely defective.

I'm inclined to agree with @Melwan; however, I know how Apple Techs work and they're going to push you to attempt a clean install before diagnosing your hardware. So go ahead and do a clean install (Back up your files of course) then boot your mac holding down the alt key, you should see your HD show up and a restore partition show up. Select the restore partition and make sure you wipe the harddrive and do a clean install. This may help if something that handles your graphics installed wrong. It's worth a shot, especially if you don't have AppleCare any longer.
