    Unhappy Macbook Pro restarts by its own (need help)

    Hello to all,
    I have a Macbook Pro mid 2010 and the computer is restarting by its own.
    When the computer restarts, after listen the chime it shows a message saying "Your computer restarted because of a problem. Press a key or wait a few seconds to continue starting up".
    Some time ago I upgraded the RAM memory and the HDD to a SSD and all worked fine. Now it seems like there is any problem on hardware.
    For dispite any changes i did, i installed the original RAM memory and original HDD, formated and installed the OSX (OSX Sierra) and all updates up to date.
    When the computer restarts and enter on OSX, it says the computer had a problem and shows a relatory:

    It seems like a hardware problem? May be the failure is on graphics card?

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you tried gfxcardstatus?
    Have you tried to switch manually the graphic card used to Intel hd graphics via gfxCardStatus and see if random reboots still occurs ?

    I run a independent apple repair shop

    sounds like you have a gpu issue according to the log.

    once you changed the ram back does it still crash?

    15" models are prone to graphics failures
