    I recently started getting these crashes/black screen shutdowns. I don't know what is the cause, and these error reports don't help me at all..

    Can anyone interpret what may be going wrong for me? Thanks so much!
    They seem to happen while using Photoshop or Illustrator most often - so I assume when I'm using lots of resources. And I'm connected to a Cinema Display

    Damn, really?

    Sorry -- I hit CMD-A and CMD-C, so I thought I got it all ... guess I'll have to wait until it happens again.

    Someone on another forum has suggested I am having some sort of issue with my installed RAM - wrong speed.

    Apparently I have a 1333 card in there and its supposed to be 1067... Packaging claims it is compatible for both, but perhaps not.

    According to your model MBP supports 1066 MHz PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM.
    It could very well be the RAM that's causing the problems.
