    Hello guys, first time poster here.

    My Macbook pro crashed when i watch youtube videos, enter tumblr or google images, attempt opening more then 3 tabs or even work in photoshop. It behaves very irregurlar. I haven't the foggiest idea.

    About my mac:

    Version 10.6.8 snow leopard, purchased 2010. I'll post the crash log here. If anyone can point me in the right direction please.

    Code:
    Interval Since Last Panic Report:  25948 sec
    Panics Since Last Report:          28
    Anonymous UUID:                    574C32C1-A263-4370-8B9C-48CF312A49A6

    Consider trying not to debug a kernel problem in an old big cat OS. Migrate to mavericks. It has better memory management.

    Does it crash using different browsers? Have you updated to the latest drivers for your graphics card? Those two I would check from a quick glance of that crash report.

    Seeing references to the GPU may not be a good sign.

    Kernel Panics are when the OS notices something with the hardware or protected memory has been impacted. Having this occur so much possibly means a hardware issue.

    Try running the Apple Hardware Test. I'd also back everything up and do a clean install of OS X.

    MacBookPro6,2 with NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M, which appears to be a 2010 15 inch and from the description, the problem appears with graphics intensive programs.

    I'm not sure if there is enough in that log to tell for sure, but here are just two of many similar threads.

    Plus more info:

    I'd first try updating graphics drivers as mentioned above, but anyway here is the Apple Knowledge Base article for this model.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4088

    Replacement logic board is sometimes needed.

    I suggest you have it diagnosed by an Apple Store, it smells after a logic board that is about to retire...

    Perhaps, but with his machine nearing 5 years old, they may not work on it. There is a cut off on when apple stops working on it.

    Its a good suggestion however and it can't hurt to take it in, or call them. I dod suspect its hardware (GPU) and with the 2010 models known for having a failing GPU the odds of it being that are even higher.

    Wow so many replies! Thanks everyone for the quick responses. I'll go through them one by one by beginning with this update *fingers crossed* I'll pop back with the results

    I upgraded the drivers, alas it still crashed :(, I cant believe I was so unlucky, I purchased one of the faulty mid-2010 MB Pro's.

    Its not that you purchased a faulty MBP, but rather the 2010 MBPs have a known defect that causes the dGPUs to fail. They had a repair program in place to replace the logic board, but I believe that has since expired. Plus its only replacing the logic board which means it kicking the can down the road, i.e., it will not fix the problem, just delay the failure for a couple more years.

    Migrate it to Mavericks and take it to Apple store. Then it is for sure running a supported OS version. If they cannot do anything, consider putting it on Craig's List and/or ebay.

    I don't think installing mavericks is needed. Its not a question of whether the OS is supported but rather it being a hardware issue. Being 4 years old there's not much Apple will be doing with this anyways.

    Its most likely the GPU

    But upgrading to Mavericks costs nothing, it removes one objection to getting Apple support at the Genius Bar, and should make the unit easier to resell compared to it running an old cat release. I can't see any negatives in the upgrade.

    I agree that he will be lucky if Apple does agree to do anything.

    True, but I think its a wasted effort. I don't see a genius refusing to diagnose a Mac because its not running Mavericks.

    Yea I doubt they repair it for free. I'll just sell it and build a PC from scratch while I save up for an IMac. Though selling it in it's current state is a bit depressing. Any estimates on the cost of replacing the logic board?

    Thanks again guys, you're all awesome!

    A logic board replacement is probably going to cost you more than what you're going to get when selling it. In my opinion the best way to make money off it is sell it as spares piece by piece. Bought one machine with a broken logic board for the top case and then made back the money I spent after I sold some of the parts I didn't need (optical disc drive, RAM, fans and charger).

    Had a really similar problem myself a couple of years ago on the model after that. Took it to a specialist to be diagnosed, but they didn't find anything wrong with it (thou they did complain about the aftermarket HDD). Did some detective work and found out that the cause of the kernel panics was actually Opera and not anything hardware related. Replaced it with Chrome and the kernel panics stopped right there.

    So before you call it a hardware defect, try to check if you can make the kernel panics stop by replacing the programs you're using when the kernel panics happen one at a time until you've excluded them all.

    Take it the next step. do a backup. Then do a clean install of Mavericks. See if there are panics. If so....hardware problem...take it to Apple for a repair estimate. If not, install one app at a time.

    Go & get the free "gfxCardStatus" by Cody Krieger and force your MBP to use the integrated GPU. Works fine as long as you don't have an external screen attached.

    If it doesn't crash anymore, then I'd bet my money on the discrete GPU being the problem. (I speak from experience – 2011 MBP with a well-known GPU problem which Apple still fails to acknowledge).
    Apple has a bad track record with discrete GPU from various model years...

    To the OP:
    Just wondering -- is the RAM factory-original, or have you upgraded it?

    It's in its original state. Haven't upgraded anything. Ironic because it's in great condition too. Thanks everyone for the support. Means a lot

    ----------

    At first I assumed it was either chrome or Photoshop but even without touching the two it still crashes. Today alone it crashed 4 times. I'm at my wits end to be honest. I'm saving up for a new computer. You have no idea how many times i've lost hours of work because I forgot to save regularly.
