Random Mavericks Crashes

Recommended Posts

Not sure how to explain it, but this has never happened to me before. 
I'm crashing every now and then. I get no error messages or anything. The operating system just freezes and I cant even move the mouse. It's in a frozen state.
Any way I can figure out what's going on?

I would remove every unnecessary hardware item.

 

Basically only keyboard/mouse/monitor

Remove all extra SSD/HDDs

Remove your graphics card and try onboard graphics.

 

Then run the computer and see what happens.

 

If it still does it try swapping the ram.

Could hardware faults be the cause of systematic crashes, ie. a crash exactly 1 minute after booting osx every time, regardless of what I'm doing?

Just throwing this out there. If you boot with -V does it say something about Unsynchronized tsc? If it does after a while of using osx your processor will cause the computer to lock up exactly how you described. To fix that all you need is voodootscsync.kext
