    After a static electric shock, my ethernet port is dead and the Macbook Pro crashes; freezes and only a hard reboot helps. But it only crashes with 4 Gig installed and memory use over 2 Gig. Installed just 2 Gig it keeps running, even with all the memory in use. It run's with either of the 2 Gig DIMMS installed, so the DIMMs are fine.

    The Panic report says:

    Interval Since Last Panic Report: -570 sec
    Panics Since Last Report: 1
    Anonymous UUID: 4D44E794-E199-45CB-BF24-0D58E2A038E2

    panic(cpu 1 caller 0x9cdbfa): NVRM[1/3:0:0]: Read Error 0x00009410: CFG 0x086310de 0x00100406 0xd6000000, BAR0 0xd6000000 0x6d270000 0x0ac180b1, D0, P3/4
    Backtrace (CPU 1), Frame : Return Address (4 potential args on stack)

    I have attached three Panic reports.

    Can anyone help me? What is wrong with the MacBook?

    Thanks Wobble.

    Does it work with either stick of ram in EITHER slot as well?

    Behind you
    the panic occurs in your graphics card.
    but as you have the 9400m and it uses the main memory as its own i would still say its your memory.
    also using the other graphics card, 9600gt or whatever might narrow it down as it has its own memory.
