I have a Apple Macbook Pro that is only 3 1/2 years old. It recently started restarting for no reason when I upgraded to Mavericks. I purchased a new hard drive and installed Mountain Lion on the hard drive and installed it into the computer. It still is restarting for no reason. I can be in the middle of working on something and it crashes.

Please let me know if it is software , firm ware, or just the computer.

Thanks
Jeff

Hi

For your 2010 model it is a known issue with the logic board. Best you visit your apple dealer and tell him you suspect to also have a bad logic board.

Anyway, if you print out the kernel panic along with a print from this thread they should be willing to help you out.
