MacBook Pro Mid 2010 Shuts down and restarts randomly while plugged in
Need some assistance with my Macbook Pro 15'' Mid 2010.
The computer has a nasty habit that has developed out of the blue where it shuts down and restarts whether it is running off of power supply or battery supply.
It occurs more often when running off of just battery supply, even with the charge at full. What can I try to make this situation go away?
Here's the crash Report: Crash Report
Some of the information above regarding the .com.apple extensions were not permitted as they were pegged as spam. Provided as much as the crash report as possible.
The sequence of events that most often occurs is the computer will crash without warning. It will attempt to boot. Makes it to the login grey screen. Crashes again... and then will allow me to put in my password and restart.
- MacBook Pro 15'' Mid 2010.
- OS X El Capitan V. 10.11.6
- Processor: 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5
- Memory: 8 Gb 1067 MHz DDR3
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 256 MB
- I am the original owner
- No drops or fluid spills.
I replaced the hard drive with a Samsung 250 GB SSD last christmas.
I also replaced the original RAM 4 GB to 8 GB
The computer recently started having problems approximately 2 months ago. I have since reformatted the computer, and the problems persist. I have downloaded Coconut battery which gives the following stats:
- Design Capacity: 7200 mAh
- Cycle Count: 283
- OS X Battery Status: Good
- Battery Temp: 35.5 C
- Charing with 21.02 Watts
(While plugged into power adapter)
According to TG Pro:
- Battery sensor 1 & 2: 31 & 30 C
- Battery Sensor Max: 36 C
- Heatpipe Outgoing Air: 36 C
- Left Heatsink Proximity 48 C
- Platform Controller Hub Die 59 C
- Right Heat sink Proximity: 48 C
- Memory Controller: 59 C
- Palm Rest Proximity 32 C
- DC In Proximity: 55 C
Need some help with where to start. I've never encountered this problem before, and not sure what action to take next. I've read several articles talking about overheating issues, logic board issues and other such problems, but not sure if these actually apply to my situation.
The temperature does not seem likely as the computer does not seem very warm via touch or when utilizing TG Pro or Coconut Battery.
I'm unfamiliar with the logic board issues.
Any help would be much appreciated!
Thank you for your time and help in advance!
Sorry this post was so convoluted.
The character count and spam blocker of this website was quite the nuisance when trying to post and give adequate information about the problem I'm having.
So it seems like my problem may lie in the graphics card itself. I downloaded a program called gfxCardStatus 1.8.1 and am currently forcing my computer to run off of the intel card only. For the moment this seems to have solved my issues. Time will tell if this will keep it from occurring...
Is a repair on almost 7 year old computer actually worth it? To me the computer runs as fast as I need it to. I have updated with a SSD HD and installed the "max" 8 GB of RAM. The most taxing thing I do with my computer is record and edit audio in Logic Pro.
I have been looking at new computers prior to finding the program I previously discussed and the 2016 Macbook Pros do not seem that impressive. Have the 2015 MBPs seemed to be pretty reliable?
Is this a good question?
