I went to a Apple Store and got a new Logic Board, because they thought I have the Nvidea GPU- Problem... again! Its my 3rd logic board.
Does anyone have a solution for the problem?
It was the RAM. Make sure you have Apple specific sticks installed.
I just remove the two RAM sticks I had (total 4gb purchased at Micro Center) at the suggestion of an Apple tech. he told me this might be a hardware problem but since the problem began right around the time I replaced the RAM it more than likely is associated. I did do and took it back to the store and was told by one of their people that is also a tech that the RAM must be for Apple products to work and not just RAM that will fit the slot and boot up. He told me that most brands and particularly Centon must have something showing that it is designated for Mac. I bought another two sticks that says on the package for Mac and so far so good. The blue screen looping which was getting worse and worse (three times this morning in fifteen minutes) has not happened since.
Check your RAM and make sure that any upgrades were made especially for Mac. I think this will do the trick and I will chime in again when i have played with it more.
I don't have a solution but I can tell that the same thing is happening to me with my MBP bought summer 2007. It happens when I open photos in prevue. The first time it was opening several at one time in rapid succession, now it can happen with one just opened. It happened to me last night twice in ten minutes. A couple of weeks ago it was looping, restarting every few seconds. I did seem to find one action that seems to have made it more stable. I unplugged the five external drives I have chained into it and it not only has stopped doing this o far but seems faster too. Any ideas?
