My Laptop Broke

again. The fourth time actually. I am so pissed off, probably I shouldn’t be posting anything until I calm down.

Feb 22 12:28:01 localhost kernel[0]: Previous Shutdown Cause: 3

Feb 22 19:06:43 localhost kernel[0]: Previous Shutdown Cause: 3
Feb 22 20:02:14 localhost kernel[0]: Previous Shutdown Cause: 3

[Added 2007-03-03] My laptop restarted all by itself (instantaneously, like power was out) 3 times in 3 days, then for 5 days it worked without any problems. Don’t really know what to think, if this does not happen again it will be quite hard to convince the apple service guys that this is a real problem. Anyway, now there are even more problems with DVDs, and also the older unfixed ones related to sleep mode.

    Wow, you’re having the hell of a Mac experience there. Guess, it doesn’t help if I say that my powerbook, which has been under heavy usuage since January 2003 and fell off a table several times, never had any defect whatsoever.

    Here’s my expert advice: Don’t give your notebook gay male names. This is just the revolt you deserve for that!

    I guess you can ask for refund.
    Or for a new one.
    I mean it.

    It might be that the model was new and unstable.

    *hugs*

    Ah if you need a laptop for the Monday’s presentation do not hesitate to ask me…

    Ever since I rebuilt my machine over the summer, it spontaneously reboots itself a few times a week. Sometimes my laptop has a bad day and restarts itself twice in one day. I checked dmesg and it says that the previous shutdown cause was “3.” I’m still trying to figure out what that means. –;;

    For me it meant: Get a new laptop! :)

    is either RAM, video, or MLB. Time to take it in.
    Run AHT overnight looped, it may find something with the RAM…

    I know this was posted last year, but I’m having the same issue.. twice now in 2 days. Grep shows the same errors you got posted here. What ever happened with this? Genius bar was useless…

    Sorry, but I already lost track of all these problems.
