I have the gfxCardStatus app installed that let's me force the computer to the Intel motherboard chipset and the crashes stop. Of course any decent graphics performance stops as well. Naturally the Apple program to fix this defect is long ended so I don't have much recourse.



    Wondering if anyone has installed El Capitan on a Mid 2010 MBP?

    eek.  I'm in the exact same boat. At first the crashes weren't too bad but it seems more frequent these days especially with that godawful Flash player junk. It's KP'd a few times. And gfx weirdness waking from sleep sometimes.  I mainly use the intel gfx with Cody's tool, too. I don't really need the horsepower from the discrete card often so that is fine most of the time. However, I spent over two grand on it. I kind of feel Apple should give us a discount on a new MBP or something.  I am on 10.6.8. Also wondering how El cap is on our beautiful Edsel.

    Well I'm still on Mavericks so I'll likely wait a little while longer and see what is stuffed this time.  Once upon a time, most Apple OS releases just worked. 

    This must have been before 1989, because I've been around for every system update since then (6.0.7 onwards), and NONE of the major releases have ever been bug-free. :rolleyes:

    Pretty sure he was joking, hence the smiley.
