    I am running into a strange issue where my macbook pro freezes and screen flickers. I play music live, so that's pretty unacceptable for me. VIDEO:

    First I thought I was feeding too much midi into it, but my DAW's cpu meter is at 1/4... And then I had this happen when watching netflix, so this is not midi related...

    I have changed memory to 8GB and I have an SSD running. But this started happening before the ssd upgrade.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Bad memory? Bad graphics card?

    This is a 13 inch mid 2012 Macbook Pro, 2.5Ghz Corei5, Vengeance 8gb RAM 1600Mhz ddr3, Intel HD Graphics 4000 512 MB, OS X 10.8.4 (12E55), 128 GB Samsung SSD

    early and late 2011 15" models are having these issues. Don't know if that's the model that you have - see this thread on Apple's site

    EDIT - DOH, should have read further in your post - not your model.

    I was having a lot of issues and I think mine were resolved by applying the May 2013 Samsung firmware update to my 840. Try that?

    Hey, thanks for the suggestion, there are currently no firmware updates for my model... might have to take it in for diagnostic at the apple store.
