Help! I inherited a second hand 2010 macbook pro and it keeps crashing. OSX started at 10.6.3, to Lion, to Sierra. It kept crashing despite updating it. Any app I open, the mac just crashes ... sometimes in 2 mts, sometimes after 15 mts... random. What do I do? Error message below... Thanks in advance!
