    Hi guys, I have a Late 2009 15" MacBook Pro (Unibody) A1286 that recently had a hard drive change due to the stock one coming close to failure. After a couple hours of usage, It suddenly freezes (and if i'm playing audio, it sounds like a broken record for a second) and restarts and gets the "Your computer restarted because of a problem" message. When the desktop loads, It requests to send a report to apple and provides this message:

    It was a brand-new hard drive, so there shouldn't be any issues!!! Any help or ideas :(? The person I got the HD from suggested it's another issue such as the power adapter or motherboard, but It started after the swap.

    I don't see how a hard drive could cause random crashing. Maybe you damaged something while working in there? A hardware test may reveal something.

    Aother thing it could be is something in the software.

    You can rule out if RAM, etc is bad by booting off a different storage device. You can install the Ubuntu livecd onto a USB stick and boot from that, and play around with it. If it crashes then something is wrong with your hardware. If it does not crash then it is probably some software on the drive.

    I'm not the one that did the swap, my friend who owns a store did. Occasionally I do hear the hard drive spin down and start up, but nothing happens to the computer's interface.
  6. poiihy macrumors 68020


    Aug 22, 2014
    Spin down and start up, eh? Sounds like the drive's firmware has a sleep timer thing whatever it is called, and it spins down after a certain amount of time after inactivity. I hate drives with that, it should be controlled by the operating system, not the drive's firmware.
    It's unlikely that this has something to do with your problem, but it might. Here is a tool that keeps drives like that from going to sleep:
    It regularly reads/writes some data at certain intervals to prevent the drive from going to sleep. Although it might not fix your crashing problem, you should not let the drive spin down and speed up frequently, it is not good for the drive, and it's annoying.

    I DID get my data transferred from my old HD, would that be a factor?
  8. poiihy macrumors 68020


    Aug 22, 2014
    Possible, but unlikely.
  9. mariuspollux thread starter macrumors newbie

    Another thing, When I started it for the first time after the swap and went into Chrome, I started getting annoying pop-up "MacShop" ads (malware) but I figured out how to remove them... would it be possible I have a virus?
  10. poiihy macrumors 68020


    Aug 22, 2014
    Viruses are rare. Adware is more common. Adware is harmless but very annoying. The MacShop thing was probably adware.

    You may want to try to reinstall Mac OS X, without erasing all your stuff. Reboot into Recovery volume (hold command+R through boot), click Reinstall Mac OS X, and proceed.
    This might solve some things.

    If my computer Kernal panics during the re-install, would that ruin anything?
  12. poiihy macrumors 68020


    Aug 22, 2014
    Not really. On reboot it will start all over, and anything that got corruputed would be overwritten anyway.

    If you do get kernel panics during the reinstall then that is a sign that the problem is not software and is hardware instead.

    So I guess I should back-up everything first? If so, What is the best method? I have an external HD, but im not sure how to back-up everything
  14. poiihy macrumors 68020


    Aug 22, 2014
    You don't have to backup but it is recommended. When you reinstall the OS X it just overwrites the existing OS X files with new ones, so that any holes are filled. All your personal data stays the same. Usually your system would be almost exactly the same after a reinstall.

    Is your issue resolved?

    I had similar issue, and it turned out to be RAM 1333 MHz after new hard drive. I have mid 2009 macbook pro. In 2010, have upgraded ram to 8GB 1333 GHz, everything was working fine until last month when i upgraded hard drive to SSD - started crashing randomly several times a day. I replaced 8GB 1333 ram with 8GB 1066 RAM, and it fixed the issue. Note: I also had a kernel panic during osx installation, but i don't think that's the issue.

    I have a mid-2009 MacBook Pro and it also had 1333MHz RAM and it crashed randomly! But I did not install an SSD, it was like this when I got it. I tested RAM with memtest and found it to be faulty. Either the seller put bad RAM in it or the MacBook Pro destroyed the RAM because it was slightly faster than it should be. That is how I got here. I used to have Lobomoto's FanControl because that brought the crashing down to a minimum somehow (which made me think it was heat related) but after I updated to Yosemite it broke FanControl and the MBP crashed more often like it did before. Maybe the 2009 MBPs have some glitch with RAM as it seems to be a little common. RAM causes all sorts of weird problems making it hard to find the source, so if you ever have weird random problems, always check RAM first.

    Turns out the first core of my processor is failing... great luck for me :mad: I Have the option of buying a $200 used motherboard and praying it will last, or buying a new mac that will suit my needs...
  18. poiihy macrumors 68020


    Aug 22, 2014
    Processor failing?! I seriously doubt it! What makes you think that?! Did you check your RAM?
  19. mariuspollux thread starter macrumors newbie

    Nov 28, 2014
    I Had it diagnosed by an authorized apple service provider.
  20. poiihy macrumors 68020


    Aug 22, 2014
    Huh well I have never heard of a CPU failing and I doubt it is the issue. I wonder how they do their "diagnosis" because faulty RAM causes all kinds of weird problems that looks like it is caused by other things like GPU and CPU and Power management. I used to think my MBP had faulty power management or bad CPU 1 but turns out it wasn't.
    If you have not done a test with memtest86, do it before you spend away 200 bucks for a new board. If there are no errors then it probably is something else.
    You said it started happening after replacing hard drive. Perhaps you damaged something.
