    Hey guys my Early 2011 MacBook Pro i5 with 8gb of ram froze for the second time. I have no idea what is causing it but I do know is that these two freezes have only happened since I installed Mountain Lion. I was able to take a snapshot of my console when the froze began and the picture just continues in the console for a while. I've heard of other people having this problem(on apple communities) but no answers. Please Help!

    Did you upgrade the RAM yourself?

    Yes I did.
  5. macrumors 6502a


    I ran memtest and didn't get any errors.

    Run the Apple Hardware Test

    I tried holding down "d" for the hardware test and it didn't not work. Then I tried holding option and "d" and I got a window called Internet Recovery. I tried entering in my network's name and password and it didn't work. I tried three times until it froze and I had to shut down my Mac.

    It turns out I can't do the hardware test because it may be a disk that I threw away. But, even if I didn't get any disks with my computer, holding they D key doesn't do anything and when I hold down Option + D I get the Internet Recovery window and it doesn't except my network name and password. So does anyone no about this freeze im getting and how to fix it?

    Mountain Lion 10.8.2 update! Hopefully this fixes the freezing issue!

    i have been experiencing the same freeze issue as you since 10.8.0.

    i upgraded the ram and hdd myself.

    i know its the same freeze issue because me and many others have posted the same logs as you detailing the exact same information.

    i have rarely experienced it since 10.8.1 though.

    i doubt 10.8.2 fixes it, but i hope atleast it makes it occur even more rarely.

    Yes I got it after I installed Mountain Lion. I've only had it happen twice though and the second time was a while after the first. So what model Mac do you have?
  12. macrumors 6502

    late 2011 MBP 15inch base model.
  13. macrumors 6502a


    I have the early 2011 13 inch base model.

    Same here guys. Using MBP 13" (Late 2011) bought in June 2012 with Lion 10.7.3. Upgraded to 10.7.4 and everything was smooth & perfect.

    Since the time I have upgraded to ML 10.8 > 10.8.1 > 10.8.2; have experienced freeze thrice with nothing moving except the mouse.

    Cross my fingers and knock on wood, I've only had one freeze, documented in the 10.8.2 experiences thread.

    So you don't have to dig through such a long thread for all the details, I'll mention here that I'm running 10.8.2 on a late 2011 15.4 in hires antiglare MBP with 16 GB of Centon RAM.

    Mr. Retrofire

    Update the Adobe Flash Player plugin to the latest version (or disable the plugin in your web browser) and disable the automatic graphics card switching (via System Preferences or via gfxCardStatus). Older versions of the Flash Player (and probably older versions of Google Chrome and other apps) are incompatible with the automatic graphics card switching.
  19. macrumors 6502a


    Yeah, I think it may be the graphics card.


    Would I need this for my Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB graphics?

    I don't get them very often. To me a freeze occurs when I'm ready for my Mac to do something and it is not. If I can pick restart I do. If I get tired of waiting, I hold the power button. It was a lot faster with the hybrid SSD in my Macbook. I could come back from a reboot in under 20 seconds. Even at 7200 RPM, my MBP can take over 30 seconds to reboot. One of these days, I'll either put in an SSD or I'll put in a hybrid SSD so I get my fast boot times back.

    Only if you have two GPUs in your Mac (integrated (Intel HD X000) and discrete (AMD/NVIDIA)).
