    Hey Everyone,
    Last month my 15" Mid-2012 MacBook Pro received its 1st Kernel Panic. Before it happened, all I did was browse on a webpage on Safari. According to the log, it looks like it is something related with the GPU. However, my GPU is running just fine with no problems (I do a lot of video editing on FCP X and haven't experienced any issues so far).

    Then just yesterday, I was browsing on a webpage using Google Chrome and I received another Kernel Panic (2nd one). What appears looks really similar to the 1st one.

    I'm clueless of what could be causing my Mac to start experiencing KPs. Is this a hardware problem or a software problem? Please let me know if anyone can read this and let me know what's going on.

    It does look graphics related. Is there a particular reason you're still using 10.7.5? A newer OS may be more stable.

    I think it's GPU like chrfr says. Wasn't 2012 with nvidia the one that had the faulty gpu issues? and apple replaced out of warranty? just because one app has no problems doesn't mean it is not a gpu problem.

    That recall, for some reason, is only for the Retina 2012 model even though the non-retina 2012 uses the same GPU.
