    Hi,
    thanks for this patch. it seems to help.

    Nevertheless I get a kernel panic as soon as I plug an external display via mDP. I guess I'll stick to using the mac without the external display

    You will need to replace the capacitor to use an external monitor.

    Hi, I'm using a 2010 Macbook Pro with the aforementioned Kernal panic.

    I was using Mountain Lion and getting continuous crashes, so I upgraded to El Capitan and ran the MBPMid2010-GPU-Fix-0.6.1. It seemed to work and after using the mac for a few days I ordered new RAM and an SSD. After installing these all was good for a day or two, but then the Kernal panics have come back and are as bad as ever. I've tried resetting and installing the MBPMid2010-GPU-Fix-0.6.1 again, and I've tried the other version 'The MBP 2010 GPU Panic fix'. None of this has stopped the crashes, nor does gfxCardStatus. Disappointing as I thought it was fixed.

    Any suggestions or will I have to get the capacitor replaced?

    Many thanks

    Forgot to add: running in safeboot pretty much stops the crashes, but obviously I can't stay in that mode.

    This "fix" is, of course, only a temporary "solution"
    but, yeah that's your only real option
    (besides getting rid of it)

    it’s also possible the ram or ssd are bad. Kernel panics in general are usually caused by faulty hardware. Try putting your old ram back in for a while then the old drive back for a while in order to try to isolate which one is causing it

    It's the graphics chip; they were improperly soldered on the 2010 & 2011 MacBooks.
    Apple sent out a recall for the 2011s, but not the 2010s.

    It's not the nVidia graphics chip that is a problem, it's the underrated c9560 capacitor that needs to be replaced with a higher-rated version.

    The early and late 2011 15" have the Radeon GPU issue.

    Right, but how are these software posts going to fix it?

    This software food is only for the 2010 15", not the 2011 15".
