Crashes every once a while

Question

Hi guys,

 

I'm running Mavericks on my AMD system, but for some reason every now and then the system completely locks up and I have to hard shutdown and boot back in.

I can't see a pattern yet, and I don't really know where to look for logs.

 

If someone could tell me where to find a log that may be useful that'd be great - or any other advice would be great, too.

 

I'm running the following setup:

Motherboard: ASUS M5A99X EVO

Graphics cards: ASUS NVidia GTX 560 TI (x2)

Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 955 @ 3,2GHz

RAM: 14GB HyperX 1333MHz

 

Everything looks to be working out the box so far. LAN works out the box, graphics appear to also work out the box - but I'm wondering if the graphics could be the cause of the problem?

I have Facebook on in the background, and that sometimes uses Flash to play the videos in the newsfeed, so wondered whether it was stressing one/both of my graphics cards.

 

Any help is appreciated. Let me know if you need more information - as I say, I don't know where to find any logs just yet, but if someone could help with that I'll post it here (and look at it myself)

This forum seems pretty dead.

 

Anyway - I've found the freezefix.app which looks to be promising. Will post my results (and the app if it fixes my problem) later.

    • Hi guys, managed to make a hackintosh and everything is going great (Wifi, cpu ECT)   But it's pretty damn slow, i tried one of my favorite lightweight games to test (The Ultimate Doom) and it could barely run THAT! This is my first time and i have no idea how to get my 8570 to work.. Probably should have read a bit, eh? Lol.   And no I don't plan on using my hackintosh for gaming, but god so slow..   Thanks, help would be very appreciated. Edit: It's the dedicated version btw, and in about my mac I see "Graphics Display 3 MB" maybe the issue?  
    • Trying to boot to the installer but I get instant reboot after the following: I am using the following flag (I tried a variation - I need USBBusFix=Yes otherwise it fails even earlier): All my USB devices turn off just before it reboots, so I'm guessing it loses connection to the USB install media - but I can't work out why it's disabling all the USB's. My motherboard is an AsRock Killer Fatal1ty 990FX.
    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
