    Hey, I have a 2008 macbook, out of warranty. My mac is running os x 10.6.4... I recently updated the laptop through the update section, and this is around the time the errors began. My next stop is perhaps reinstalling the operating system, but have to go out and buy the disc so thought i would check all options first.
    It has begun random shutdowns recently, and i have tried checking the ram, checking power supply, removing battery to see if its caused by that, but so far nothing has come up.
    A mate of mine said sometimes you can work out the problem by looking at the logs to see what is causing the problem... Well, long story cut short, it means nothing to me, but I am hoping someone on this forum could help me

    Thank you to anyone who is able to help me out, even if its only pointing me in the right direction to a better place for help..


    the log is as follows from when i turned it on this afternoon, till the random shutdown, and then powering it back up again, i put the exact shutdown time in bold. thanks again for your help

    NAV looks pretty upset. Can you fully uninstall it? Was an installation incomplete, or is this further proof of their poor programming?
