Why is OS X 10.10 randomly crashing?
I recently purchased this computer from a close friend who completely wiped the iMac and installed Yosemite 10.10.3. (This computer is solely used for Logic Pro X with PreSonus Firepod 10)
I installed Logic Pro X and everything worked fine for a couple hours.
Shortly after that I installed a driver for Native Instruments Maschine and the problems started.
The computer would become unresponsive for a second, the screen would flash and it would shut down (although the fan continued to run). I would do a SMC reset along with zapping the PRAM. I end up on the "Your computer restarted because of a problem".
The problem continued so I updated to 10.10.5.
For about 8 days the computer worked perfectly and I thought the problem was solved with the update.
I was wrong.
About twice a day the computer will restart by itself and I end up on the "Your computer restarted because of a problem".
I am lost and have no clue what to do.
Thanks in advance!
I downgraded and am now on Mavericks. It worked well for about a week and the same thing started happening. I did a clean install and everything has been fine since but I know it is going to happen again. I read that I needed to install Nvidia drivers but I can't find one comparable for iMac 9'1.
