Mid 2010 Macbook Pro, all application crash.

I have a mid-2010 MacBook Pro, which the original version was 10.6, now upgraded to maverick. I had no problems with it until 2 days ago it started.
EVERYTHING crashed. Safari. Firefox. Skype. iTunes. EVEN finder. It only crash if i type something in the search bar. Like in safari, the website bar, if i type there something, it will freeze for 1 sec and crash. Same with firefox. Finder, if i type something in file searcher bar, it crash, causing the icons to disappear, and be back in 2 seconds. Even my games crash often. Like 30s - 2 hours each crash. I am now desperate because I can't use my Mac without typing anything. Also, top-right corner, where the wifi and things there has moved to the right, and cannot be seen expect for my hamachi icon there. What the fck is going on.

Please read this whole message before doing anything.
This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards, if applicable. Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you turn on the computer, and again when you log in.
Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the startup volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
Safe mode is much slower to start up and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal startup may also be somewhat slow.
The login screen appears even if you usually login automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
After testing, restart as usual (not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • My mid 2010 macbook pro keeps freezing/crashing every time I try and play a game. Any help?

    Every time I try and play either WoW or The Sims, my mac goes to black screen, or black screen and repeating last second of noise it was playing. I haven't upgraded to Lion and am still using Snow Leopard(??). I am by no means the most tech savvy girl in the world, but would appreciate any help, as this is driving me insane!! Thanks!!!

    I don't know if it would help, but this is all the whoo haa from the last panic report thing. (about 5ish minutes ago)
    I don't really know what any of it means, but if someone could help me decipher and tell me if there's anything I can do, I would be super grateful. (before I go into apple, that is)

  • Mid-2010 Macbook pro repeated crashes after service, HELP!

    I have a mid-2010 Macbook pro with the i7 and 8gb of crucial ram. I have had this problem for months and finally took it into the authorized Mac repair center where I live. The nearest apple store is 4 hours away. He put it through 3 days of testing and found no problems with any hardware, including the RAM. I can't find my apple ram so I haven't tried to run my laptop with that. Anyway, we did a HD wipe and restored from the recovery drive to see if that was the issue. No luck. The logic board also passed all tests. The computer crashes with any amount of stress (garageband, iPhoto, or simply surfing the web with an external display) and is impossible to get work done. I'll paste the crash report below. I would love to try to find another solution!
    Thanks all,

    I have a mid-2010 Macbook pro with the i7 and 8gb of crucial ram. I have had this problem for months and finally took it into the authorized Mac repair center where I live. The nearest apple store is 4 hours away. He put it through 3 days of testing and found no problems with any hardware, including the RAM. I can't find my apple ram so I haven't tried to run my laptop with that. Anyway, we did a HD wipe and restored from the recovery drive to see if that was the issue. No luck. The logic board also passed all tests. The computer crashes with any amount of stress (garageband, iPhoto, or simply surfing the web with an external display) and is impossible to get work done. I'll paste the crash report below. I would love to try to find another solution!
    Thanks all,

  • Mid-2010 Macbook Pro Crashes Often (I know)...

    Hi. My Mid 2010 Macbook Pro keeps crashing. Possibly related to the installation of OS X Mavericks, but from the other threads it sounds like a RAM or logic board issue. I would appreciate the help. Here is the panic log:

    You have the MacBookPro6,2, the Edsel of Macs. It may have the logic-board defect that was covered by this recall.
    Make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store, or go to another authorized service provider, to have the machine tested. The routine hardware diagnostics used by service providers do not detect the fault. There is a specific test for this issue that Apple calls "VST" (for "Video Switching Test.") Ask for it. A "Failed" result means that the fault is present. However, according to reports, some units may pass the test, and yet still be deemed eligible for repair under the program. Your experience may vary.
    Print the first page of the panic report, if any, and the support page linked above, and bring them with you.
    Note that the recall only applies within three years of purchase. After that, Apple may refuse the service. In that case, you may be quoted a price of about $300 (in the U.S.) for a "depot repair," which involves shipping the unit to a central repair facility and takes about two weeks. For that flat fee, anything found wrong with it should be fixed, not just the logic board.
    The model was discontinued on February 24, 2011, so the recall has nominally ended. Some units may have been sold after that date by Apple as refurbished, or by resellers as new, and they might still be covered.
    Some owners report that their unit was repaired under the program after the deadline had passed. Others report that the repair was covered by the extended warranty from a credit-card issuer. Again, your experience may vary.
    Sometimes the replacement part is also defective, so be prepared for that possibility.
    If it's too late for your unit to be repaired under the program, and you don't want to pay for a new logic board, you may be able to stop the panics by disabling automatic graphics switching. To use the discrete graphics processor, you'll need a  third-party utility to switch to it manually.
    Often the problems start after a system upgrade. If the upgrade was recent, and you have backups, then you can revert to a previous OS X version.
    If you're dissatisfied with Apple's response, please keep in mind that no one here represents the company or can help with customer-service issues.
    Back up all data on the internal drive(s) before you hand over your computer to anyone. If privacy is a concern, erase the data partition(s) with the option to write zeros* (do this only if you have at least two complete, independent backups, and you know how to restore to an empty drive from any of them.) Don’t erase the recovery partition, if present.
    *An SSD doesn't need to be zeroed.

  • Mid 2010 MacBook Pro i7 - Crashing - Low $ - HEELLPP

    My mid 2010 Macbook pro 15" with i7 running 10.85 has recently started crashing. I've really only used it extensively for the last 2 years so it's been doing quite well but has now started black screening then rebooting with no - at least not apparent to the user - sequence of events.
    My partner isn't working (car hit and run) so budget is low and I'm currently pushing myself on Team Treehouse to learn coding to improve my job prospects and my salary so need the laptop right now.
    Is the below the standard logic board replacement that I've found many have on forum? is it the video card? Just not sure which way to head and not in the budget for a totally new laptop though would be confident enough with the help of (PC) husband to upgrade hard drive or other components. OR am I best to take it to the Apple store for a genius assessment?
    Any help greatly appreciated.
    Kindest,
    Kitty

    The only observations are that the backup drive is deemed too small and the quite long list of diagnostic reports dated between  Jan 18, 2015 (which I believe is the day I upgraded to Yosemite) & today the latest Yosemite update was installed on Jan 28, 2015
    Any further assistance will be appreciated

  • I have a mid 2010 macbook pro 15" and recently it started crashing so I took it to my local Apple store to have it looked into and they told me its a graphics card issue requiring the replacement of the logic board at a cost to me of $340.

    I took my laptop to my local Apple store to have the problem diagnosed and they told me the problem lies in the grpahics card which will require the replacement of the entire logic board at a cost to me of $340.
    after that I did some research on the topic and found that this was a massive problem on this model of macbook pro and Apple never issued a recall to fix the issue, are there any class action suits in this category currently underway? if so how can I join?

    I also have a mid-2010 Macbook Pro 15". Also, I had paid $100 for Apple Developer account and I can't even use Xcode or Unity3D to work on my game because the moment I write a line of code, my computer crashes. Scratch that, I used to have an Apple Developer account (I let it expire a couple of weeks ago). It hasn't been of much use since my Macbook Pro crashes 15 times a day.\
    A month after buying a mid-2010 Macbook Pro 15" directly from Apple, it began to crash. At first, I assumed it was my fault as I had been messing around with Bootcamp and doing other heavy stuff, but I quickly learned it would randomly decide to shutdown regardless of the task at hand. I was very busy at the time. I was a fledgling teacher in France, and I hardly had any time, or money, to put toward a 84 euro train ticket to Paris. Also, OS X updates were around the corner (Lion, Mountain Lion), so I held out, hoping the issue would be resolved with the updates.
    During my investigation of the issue, I did find the TS4088 article. It recommended I install some updates, and then it described a problem that seemed similar to my own, but the order in which the problems occured, as described in the TS4088 article, did not follow the same pattern that my computer had been experiencing–there was no gray or black screen after the restart warning message when my mac crashed. The first time I found TS4088 on Apple's Support page (at a time when their product recalls were easier to locate before they redesigned their website), it was a couple of months after I had bought the computer. I reasoned that my Macbook Pro must not be suffering from the same issues as I had never seen the video freeze or go black before seeing a restart message. The restart warning message is the last thing I saw, no loss of video or black(or gray) screen afterwards. My computer would simply start to boot up again.
    About two years after buying the computer, and suffering from about 3 GPU panics a day, I searched for the TS4088 article again, wondering if I had misread it, and that maybe the issues described in the article were the same issues I was experiencing. This time I could not find the TS4088 article on Apple's Website. I searched over and over again, but it was nowhere to be found. I assumed that issue had been resolved and the article removed. Now after three years of using a faulty, unreliable computer, I was feeling like a schmuck. I searched again on Apple's website to find the TS4088 article, or any new ones that outlined my very apparent GPU issues, but I had no luck. I circled Apple's website over and over and could not find that article. It was only through a link other frustrated mid-2010 Macbook Pro owners had posted on some other website that I found the link to TS4088, also learning that the forum's users were experiencing my same problems.
    Based on the language Apple used to describe the problem, I did not reason that I was suffering the same issue. Here's what happens when my computer crashes:
         • The computer seems to shut down. The display turns off, the fans stop spinning
         • The message "Your computer was restarted because of a problem . . . Press any key to restart" is displayed.
         • I press any key, the computer restarts, I wait for next crash to interrupt my work
    Excerpt from TS4088
    "Symptoms
    Apple has determined that a small number of MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) computers may intermittently freeze or stop displaying video on the built-in display or on an external display connected to the MacBook Pro. In this situation, you may also see a restart warning message before the video is lost or the display turns black or gray."
    My computer never displays a restart message before the video is lost or display turns black. My Macbook Pro mid 2010 loses the picture on the display, and less than a second after that is the restart warning displayed. The video would never freeze or stop playing, rather the whole computer just dumped all of its processes and displayed a warning message asking me to press any key to restart.
    My issues with this problem are the following:
    •The problems described in TS4088 do not accurately reflect what users are experiencing. TS4088 is misleading in this respect.
    •The article TS4088 was not easy to find on Apple's website. It seemed to have moved to an obscure, impossible-to-find location that could only be found thanks to the great number of other Mac users who are experiencing the same problem.
    This issue hasn't been managed dutifully. I'm annoyed to have sunk money into a developer account. I'm annoyed that I sunk money into an expensive product that does not work. I'm annoyed that the description of the issue afflicting mid 2010 Macbook Pros was inaccurately and misleadingly described and that links to the TS4088 article disappeared from Apple's website when I could have truly benefitted from them. I am especially annoyed that my life in graphic design, web development, and iOS development has stagnated for several months as my computer crashes some 15 times a day. I am, however, pleased with the speed at which a Mac can boot up.

  • Mid 2010 MacBook Pro 15in i7 keeps crashing

    This problem has been going on for a long time now where my Mid 2010 MacBook Pro 15in w/ i7 processer keeps crashing at random times. No data is lost but it just keeps shutting down and restarting. I was thinking it may be the logic board or motherboard, not sure if they are the same thing. I get this message when I report the problem:

    What can I do about this? Is there a part I need to replace or should I just sell this and buy a new Mac?

    It's a well documented problem with that model. Your graphics circuit is failing. There was a program in place to replace the motherboard for 3 years from the date of purchase, though some folks have gotten help beyond that time frame.

  • Please help: How to replace all data on mid-2010 MacBook Pro 15 with Timemachine backup from 2009 MBP 13

    OK so I bought a mid-2010 MacBook pro 15 from a friend and he did not erase anything before he gave it to me. I was previously working on a 2009 MacBook pro 13 and have a Timemachine backup from that which I would like to install on the MBP 15 replacing all of the current data.
    I have tried rebooting using the OSX disc that came with the MBP 15 but that won't work - I am assuming that is because the OSX disc is version 10.6.3 while the current OS on the MBP 15 is 10.7.4
    What is the best/easiest way to use the Timemachine backup of my MBP 13" to replace all info on the MBP 15"?
    This seems like something that should be easy but I have been trying to do it since last night and haven't found relevant info in the discussion forums. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
    Thanks!

  • I have a mid 2010 Macbook Pro, How can I install Windows 7 without an Optical Drive?

    For clarity:  I have a mid 2010, Macbook Pro.  I recently decided to upgrade to a Crucial SSD drive, double the ram (8 gigs), and remove the optical drive in favor of using my old drive as a back up.  I am also currently running Yosemite.
    I want to install Windows 7 onto my SSD, using bootcamp.  Unfortunately I no longer have an optical drive installed, which makes things difficult as Bootcamp does not even give me the option to create a bootable USB.
    Now, this is where things get kinda fuzzy:
    MId 2010 macbooks use EFI, and are quite capable of booting from USB.  How do I know?  Because I booted from a USB drive in order to do a fresh install of Yosemite on my SSD.
    I have read mutliple forums and threads with claims that folks have had no problems doing this on 2008 Macbook Pros running Snow Leopard.  However, what seemed to be required was some clever .plist modding.  I have used both text wrangler, and x-code to do this, unfortunately upon booting of bootcamp, bootcamp instantly crashes.  Naturally, I can restore bootcamp because I made backups of the .plist file.
    It would seem that modffying the .plist file assumes that the option to create a bootable USB device is grayed out.  In my case, it is non existent.
    I have also read that folks have had success using rEFIt, however rEFIt has been forked to rEFIned, and the developer of rEFIned made mention on his site that Yosemite handles booting differently than previous versions of OSX.
    WIth that, I was hoping that some kind person could explain to me whats going on, what I am missing, and what I can do to make this happen just shy of tearing down my MBP and reisntalling the Optical Drive and dusting off my Win 7 disc.
    Also, my Model Number/Bootrom is MBP 6,2.
    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you for your reply, and the information.  This is what I came up with:
    I added the strings as instructed, however when I went to sign the script in terminal, I was told:
    /Applications/Utilities/Boot Camp Assistant.app: replacing existing signature
    /Applications/Utilities/Boot Camp Assistant.app: code object is not signed at all
    In subcomponent: /Applications/Utilities/Boot Camp Assistant.app/Contents/info.plist
    Also, here are screen captures of the lines that I added.  Mine are the top string entries:
    Thank you for your help, thus far!

  • Mid 2010 MacBook Pro 15" Blacks Out Without Warning

    Quick Summary of Problem: My MacBook Pro is currently shutting down without warning. It would be more accurate to say that the screen goes blank but the machine remains on as can be heard by the fan. Nothing resolves it without powering down and restarting. It has occurred when attached to a power source or via the battery.
    My machine specs: Mid 2010 MacBook Pro 15” with 500GB hard drive, 8GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics/nVidia GeForce GT 330M with 512MB, anti-glare 15” screen with max resolution 1680 x 1050). Running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 with 2013-001 Security Patch installed.
    I have AppleCare which commenced when I first bought the machine in July 2010.
    System Profiler says my battery condition is ‘Normal’. Cycle count: 610.
    Detailed Summary of Problem: Back in January, my MacBook Pro shut down several times without warning. Each time, I was creating selections on high resolution imagery in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
    Not long after, I saw the ‘MacBook Pro SMC Firmware Update 1.7’ relased on Feb 12 (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1633) and installed it via Software Update. By coincidence or not, my MBP behaved much better afterwards and the seemingly random blank screens requiring a restart disappeared.
    But then I installed the ‘Security Update 2013-001 (Snow Leopard)’(http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1642) via Software Update and that’s the only thing I can really remember changing to my system. Since then, the black-outs have reappeared. As before, I was usually using Photoshop and working with high resolution imagery. However, one time the machine blacked-out, I was simply doing a two-finger scroll on the built-in trackpad whilst in Chrome (Version 25.0.1364.172).
    The blackout has occurred twice now not being connected to power, and twice with it being connected to a wall socket. Needless to say, I lost work in Photoshop (even though I’ve begun to save more regularly) and now it feels like it’s a ticking time bomb and I don’t know when it’s going to go off.
    One thing I’ve found rather odd is that in the crash log, the kernal version doesn’t seem right for Snow Leopard:
    Kernel version:
    Darwin Kernel Version 10.8.0: Tue Jun  7 16:33:36 PDT 2011; root:xnu-1504.15.3~1/RELEASE_I386
    System model name: MacBookPro6,2 (Mac-F22586C8)
    The full crash log can be found at the bottom of this post.
    Fixes I’ve tried:
    1) Resetting the NV-RAM has done nothing. (was suggested
    2) I’ve tried reinstalling the ‘MacBook Pro SMC Firmware Update 1.7’ by downloading the manual installer from Apple, however it now says ‘Alert: This software is not supported on your system’ which in a way makes sense given I’d already applied the firmware update, but a more accurate message along the lines of ‘This firmware update has already been installed’ would be more reassuring.
    3) If all else fails, I could resort to copying over a backup I created with Carbon Copy Cloner, which was done before I reinstalled the 2013-001 Security Update for Snow Leopard. But that’s a bit of a headache too, because my documents I’ve updated since the backup will be out of sync. Another reason this isn’t a great solution is that I can’t take advantage of the 2013-001 security update, nor future ones.
    Any suggestions? There’s probably no good time for something like this to happen, but this is a particularly bad time – I’m currently beginning design and finished art freelancing and brushing up on some applications I haven’t used in years. Nor am I going to make an impression meeting with recruiters without my folio being presented from my MBP.
    I’ve already booked a Genius appointment 2.5 days from now, but all help and ideas greatly appreciated!

    I am sorry. The page that came up has an AD for issues with a 13" MacBook Pro in the corner. I read the AD as if it were part of the article and assumed the whole page referred to the 13" model. My Mistake.
    However, the issue described by TS4088 is not a soldering problem. It is a Latent Defect -- a flaw built into certain batches of those chips from the day they were packaged and installed.
    If your Mac fails the VST test used to detect this Latent Defect, re-flowing the solder is likely to have NO EFFECT on its performance -- the solution is the remove the defective chip and replace with a good one.
    There certainly can be problems in these and other Macs where a re-flow would be beneficial. But I caution Readers not to generalize your solution to Macs that are known to fail VST. Re-flow alone will not solve the Latent Defect problem.

  • Mid-2010 MacBook Pro seemingly fried by Mavericks

    I have a mid-2010 MacBook Pro that I installed Mavericks onto a couple of days after general release. Everything was fine with it for a week or so, and then I started to notice a couple of weird errors crop up - I had an error come up on iTunes (I think the error code was 13024) and apps would start to not open. I thought it might need a restart, so I rebooted. On restart my computer then hung on the grey startup screen with the loading wheel spinning perenially. After 10 attempts, I tried every alternate startup key input I could think of to try and get my computer in action (Reset NVRAM, Safe Boot, etc.) The first one to 'work' was Startup Manager by pressing Option. I opened Recovery Mode and tried verifying disk permissions. This threw up a TON of errors. On repairing, they all gave a me Error-22. Repair Disk didn't work either. I then tried restarting again to see if anything had been changed to boot as usual. Again, nothing.
    Next I pressed D on startup to run an AHT. This actually successfully booted to my desktop and could explore Finder and see my files etc. No applications would open and Quick Look would not let me view any files. System Preferences would also not let me launch any preference panes. Pretty much anything I clicked yielded a dialog box with a message along the lines of "Unapproved caller: SecurityAgent may only be invoked by Apple software."
    My whole system froze up on the rainbow wheel after I had to relaunch Finder from the Force Quit menu after testing Quick Look. Now when I boot into the Startup Manager neither my hard drive or the recovery drive are visible, and I only have the option to run Internet Recovery (where I am writing this post from). Normal startup just gives me a flashing folder icon with a question mark in it. I'm fairly sure Mavericks has totally fried my hard drive. Does anyone know if there's anything I can do about this or has had something similar happen to them?

    Dude i had same problem and also running same hardware as yours, i complety fomated my HDD and reinstalled everything from scratch. That did not help me, i thought it could be my HDD getting corrupted (reason why i thought that is becuase whenever "unapproved caller" showed up at same time everything on my HDD went read only mode). Hence i replaced HDD and put in new one, i dont get unapproved caller anymore.
    But there is still a problem somewhere, becuase my MBP freezes and HDD goes to read only mode, the only solution is to restart my mac sometimes multiple times.
    I think both these events are mutually exculsive.
    I have been troubled with this for about week now and very much gave up all hopes on my MBP.

  • Mid 2010 macbook pro panic shutdown

    My mid 2010 Macbook pro is experiencing an increasing number of black screen shut downs.. 3 or 4 a day currently.
    Often this occurs when the keyboard or mouse is touched after it has been idle for a short period, and sometimes mid use.
    Ive tried running without any peripherals  to no effect and carried out basic disc doctor / onyx procedures to no lasting effect.
    Any interpretation of this would be a great help.
    Here is a crash report ..
    thx

    You have the MacBookPro6,2—the Edsel of Macs. It may have the logic-board defect that was covered by this recall.
    Make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store, or go to another authorized service provider, to have the machine tested. The routine hardware diagnostics used by service providers do not detect the fault. There is a specific test for this issue that Apple calls "VST" (for "Video Switching Test.") Ask for it. A "Failed" result means that the fault is present. However, according to reports, some units may pass the test, and yet still be deemed eligible for repair under the program. Your experience may vary.
    Print the first page of the panic report, if any, and the support page linked above, and bring them with you.
    Note that the recall only applies within three years of purchase. After that, Apple may refuse the service. In that case, you may be quoted a price of about $300 (in the U.S.) for a "depot repair," which involves shipping the unit to a central repair facility and takes about two weeks. For that flat fee, anything found wrong with it should be fixed, not just the logic board.
    The model was discontinued on February 24, 2011, so the recall has nominally ended. Some units may have been sold after that date by Apple as refurbished, or by resellers as new, and they might still be covered.
    Some owners report that their unit was repaired under the program after the deadline had passed. Others report that the repair was covered by the extended warranty from a credit-card issuer. Again, your experience may vary.
    Sometimes the replacement part is also defective, so be prepared for that possibility. If you decide to pay for a new logic board, test thoroughly during the 90-day warranty period on the repair. Some owners have reported that they went through as many as three replacement boards before getting one that worked.
    If it's too late for your unit to be repaired free of charge, and you don't want to pay for the service, you may (or may not) be able to stop the panics by disabling automatic graphics switching. To use the discrete graphics processor, you'll need a third-party utility to switch to it manually.
    Often the problems start after an OS upgrade. If the upgrade was recent, and you have backups, then you can revert to a previous OS X version.
    If you're dissatisfied with Apple's response, please keep in mind that no one here represents the company or can help with customer-service issues.
    Back up all data on the internal drive(s) before you hand over your computer to anyone. If privacy is a concern, erase the data partition(s) with the option to write zeros* (do this only if you have at least two complete, independent backups, and you know how to restore to an empty drive from any of them.) Don’t erase the recovery partition, if present.
    *An SSD doesn't need to be zeroed.

  • Mid-2010 MacBook Pro: freezing and spinning wheel

    Hi there,
    I have a mid-2010 MacBook Pro (I know, old) that's been in very good condition. I upgraded my OS to Mavericks in May, which is when it started being slow and crashing/freezing around twice a week. For example, just doing normal things like surfing the web or checking the Airport or battery life will suddenly freeze the cursor which will then turn into the spinning wheel of death. Sometimes I can wait it out if it's a few minutes but sometimes I have to manually turn off the computer and then turn it back on when it's been hours of no change or improvement. I know it's probably best to downgrade back to Snow Leopard but I'd really like to keep my OS. Are there other things I can do to optimize my Mac? I've tried keeping fewer files on the desktop and emptying out the trash often and it seemed to help for a while. Other suggestions?
    Thanks for reading!

    Wow, that post looks like a mess...I will try to make it more readable.
    Thanks for your reply. I had to wait a few days for the problem to crop up again. I followed your instructions to the best of my ability. The thing is that the problem (i.e. freezing and spinning wheel) happened at 8:19 and the closest messages in the Console were are time stamped 8:17 and 8:25. So I will put them here for you to look at if you don't mind:

    I hope this is not too much text and I hope it makes some sense. The problem happened while I was closing a tab on Chrome, which wasn't anything sketchy, just Facebook, and nothing too unmanagable (it was the only application active). Thanks for your help!

  • Mid 2010 MacBook Pro extremely slow

    Hi! I have a mid-2010 MacBook Pro,which suddenly decided to start moving at snail speed for me. Applications take 5 minutes to open and when they do, they usually crash and I have to force quit. Finder runs pretty smooth but it is also slower than it used to be.
    I have:
    4GB Ram
    500GB capacity hardrive, 173GB available
    I have booted in safe mode, done both a PRAM and SMC reset, is there anything else I can try before I spend a ton of money getting it fixed?
    Thanks in advance, and sorry for any typos, I am on mobile.

    Assume the boot drive is dying and have a extra copy of your user files on another regular external drive in addition to any TimeMachine or bootable clone you may have.

    For instance we have no idea what operating system version your using.
    What do you mean by snail speed? Do you see spinning beach balls or is there a runaway process, is the machine hot?
    Slow booting, loading programs or slow writing to the drive? Slow online only?
    Thanks.
