OS X Mavericks :: MacBook Pro Constant Crashes After 10.9.3 Upgrade

Jul 1, 2014

On 6/27 I upgraded from 10.8.x (don't remember which version specifically) to 10.9.3. Since then, my 2012 Macbook Pro has been crashing every 20-90 minutes - a complete crash/reboot. The crashes happen regardless of what apps I'm running - there does not seem to be a particular trigger. Upon rebooting, all of the open apps/windows reload and I get the standard "do you want to report this to apple" message. The only time it does NOT crash is if I'm not actively using it - e.g. if I let it go to sleep at night, it will not crash overnight.  

Everything was fine before I upgraded to 10.9.3, and I have made no other changes to my setup.  

The first thing I tried was creating a new user so I could see if the problem was isolated to my user account - the crashes persisted even on a completely new user. Next, I tried booting from partition and erasing the hard drive entirely, reinstalling the OS, and then choosing "setup from time capsule" - no dice; still crashes. Finally, I tried creating a new user and then using "migration assistant" to migrate my user info, and while the migration assistant itself worked just fine, it's still crashing. 

(Unfortunately, my time capsule backup is from right AFTER I upgraded to 10.9.3, so that might be the reason that those "solutions" didn't fix anything) 

At this point I would even be willing to start completely from scratch (at least I could import all of my documents, music, etc from my hard drive), but there is no way for me to force it to start "fresh" - if I boot from partition so I can erase the hard drive and then reinstall the OS, I can't get past the Disk Utility screen (so my only option is to set up from the time capsule!).

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: TM Causing Constant Crashes?

Apr 18, 2012

Since I hooked up a new external hard drive as a TM backup, my computer crashes constantly. And I mean constantly.  I never had this problem with my previous external drive, which eventually failed. 

If I unplug the new drive, the computer works perfectly. Having spent $$$ on a 1TB drive, I don't want to buy yet another one. 

I did notice that the drive has USB 3.0 on the bottom ID label.  I'm using USB 2.0.  Does USB 3.0 require a special port because my 2007 Mac Mini doesn't have one as far as I know.

Intel Mac :: Constant Kernal Crashes After 8 Gig RAM Card Added

Jun 9, 2012

I have a mid 2010 27" iMac and just added 16 gig of new ram (first two slots came with 2 gig each and I bought and had installed two more 8 gig - so I can run Final Cut Pro X) Well, after the new RAM was installed by an apple certified dealer - it kernel crashed about 5 times randomly, which it had never done before - It was obvious it was caused by the new RAM - I took it back and they replaced it - and it has now kernal crashed 6 times - Are 8 Gig Ram cards not compatible with 2010 imacs? These guys seem like they know what they are doing - but enough is enough - I know in Apple's literature they mention that only 2 and 4 gig upgrades are possible - but they said the 8 gigs just came out

OS X Mavericks :: Constant Request For Password Verification

Jun 2, 2014

About a month ago, I made a typo when i changed the password to my administrator account. I logged in to a secondary account, succesfully chancing the password of the administrator account. When I logged in to the admin, I was asked for the password to my keychain. This I made a long time ago, and had no clue of what could be. After an hour of constant requests for passwords for different apps and the keychain, I gave up. I deleted the original keychain(or deactivated), made a new one, and made that one the default. But now I am asked the password for that keychain every other minute, and I know that one, but it's just annoying to have to type it so often, especially when it pops up during a movie.

OS X Mavericks :: Macbook Pro Can't See NAS Drive Since Upgrade?

Aug 30, 2014

13" Macbook pro (mid 2010) running Mavericks 10.9.4, Processor  2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Memory  16 GB 1067 MHz DDR3, Graphics  NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256Mb, Crucial SSD 240Gb, Seagate Goflex Home NAS drive 2TB, Wifi network is BT Infinity. 

Since upgrading to Mavericks, my macbook pro cannot see the Goflex Home drive on the network at all. I am confident that the problem lies within Mavericks as the Goflex Home drive can be accessed perfectly on the same network using my older PowerMac, my iPad and my iPhone. Also, the NAS is accessible via the internet through the Seagate Share facility.

OS X Mavericks :: MacBook Air Won't Boot After Upgrade

Jun 25, 2014

Just got my MacBook Air back from a certified Apple repair shop - I'd had maintenance done, including upgrading to Mavericks (10.9.3). Plugged it in, started it up and never got beyond the startup screen - Apple logo and spinning wheel after 5, 8, 10 minutes... 

Tried starting in Safe Mode, but once the load bar progresses about 1/5 of the way, the bar disappears, the wheel spins and then the screen goes black.

I use Mail on 10.9.3 with multiple IMAP accounts (but almost nothing the servers, all local in many folders). In the last days Mail started to crash several times a day, mostly when I interact with messages (replies, moving to folders, attachment stuff etc.) I am too fast for Mail - but that never was the case before and I have a fast machine and Internet connection.

OS X Mavericks :: Crashes Due To Internal Messages Error

Aug 22, 2014

I am using a 2009 27" iMac running Mavericks 10.9.4. Occasionally the OS freezes and the following message appears:

An Internal Messages error occurred.

There was a problem with Messages. You need to quit and open Messages again. 

The mouse still moves, but the rest of the OS is totally frozen. I try to click on the Quit button in the error message dialog, but that does nothing.

There is no reaction to keyboard presses. The only solution is to hold down the Power button until the computer shuts off.
