    My 2010 MBP has been restarting suddenly, around once a day, with this error message:

    Disabling graphic card switching has not helped.

    Any ideas?

    If the graphics card has gone it could well mean a logic board replacement, probably not a sensible financial choice for a 6year old machine.

    Agreed. I was just hoping someone could confirm the exact source of the problem from the console message. I couldn't (in good conscience) sell this machine as it is, knowing that it crashes every day.

    I'd say if you're getting that multiple times a day, then the computer is on it way out :(

    Backup your data just to be safe.

    Could be happening when your MBP switches from "Integrated" to "Discrete" graphics if the graphics card is shot. You could give gfxCardStatus in "Integrated Only" mode a shot.

    It's just a few weeks I got back my MacBook Pro from servicing: the NVIDIA GPU chipset has been resoldered, and after two years of struggling I was sooo happy. Just a bit worried because the fans were spinning much faster and louder than before... and in fact last Thursday my laptop suddenly stopped working :( No video, just the startup chime and nothing else.
    I'm gonna bring it back to the lab, but I don't think I can trust my MBP anymore. Such a pity I didn't spot the issue when Apple was replacing those faulty logic boards for free. It's the second-in-a-row troubled MBP I own, and probably the last.
