My MacBook Pro keeps restarting itself and throwing errors.  I ran the hardware diagnostics and it comes back clean; also ran disk utility to check for hardware errors on the disk; that came back clean as well.  Attached is the debug report generated following one of the restarts.  Any help on debugging the file would be appreciated.

The last loaded Kext is com.rim.driver.BlackBerryUSBDriverInt. Have you recently updated your Blackberry software? That might be your problem. You could try temporarily disabling it to see if that solves your problem.

I disabled and even removed this driver since it's not relevant anymore, but still getting the crashes.  Attached is the latest kernel dump log.

It sounds like a graphic card problem. Is the MBP still under warranty? If so, I would suggest you take it into a genius bar.

Nope, it's out of warranty, unfortunately....any other options other than replacing the whole board?

Well, I suppose you could back it up and do a clean install of the system software on the off chance it is a corrupted kext.

There has been a secret Apple extended warranty on the video cards of some MBP's because they were failing prematurely. Don't know if that is still in effect or whether it applies to your model, but if re-installing the system software doesn't work, it might be worth finding out. Print out and take a copy of the panic log with you.

I took the laptop in to have the logic board replaced by Apple.
