    I had a couple crashes this past month. Maybe once a week. I figured it was the RAM maybe, but that passed memtest. I attempted to do Apples AHT Apple Hardware Test but when I try to boot to the DVD disk it attempts like its boot to AHT but then crashes. I get this message:

    Apple Hardware Test had trouble reading env file
    'Configs\AHT_default.env'

    There is very little information on google or the net about this error.

    Macbook Pro Mid 2010

    When holding D without a the AHT disk in it doesnt attempt to boot to AHT. Goes to desktop. This laptop has been upgraded from Leopard up to Mountain lion so you lose that ability I guess. It gets to the point where AHT is loaded and right before it gets there I get that message. The fact I cant get into AHT bothers me more than anything because hardly any issues with computer otherwise. I have thought about looking into the http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4088 issue since I have had the black screen rarely in the past and apple is fixing for free up to 3 years.

    By all means. Head to the Genius Bar. While you're there ask them about AHT.
