[SOLVED] High Sierra on Dell Latitude e6420 keeps crashing

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, well I thought I had figured out the problem with this last week but today it showed it's ugly face again and more often.  Since upgrading from Sierra to High Sierra last week I have had quite a few crashes where the OS is totally unreponsive so I'm just about ready to jump back to Sierra.  But before I do I was wondering if there was a way to see thru the Crash Logs what process, or app is causing the crashes.  


I have copied the Crash Log this afternoon.  But I don't really understand much in it.  


If anyone could be of assistance that would be great.  Thanks guys.



P.s   I switched the FaksSMC.kext to the latest in order for HWMonitor to work properly with latest Sensor kexts....wonder if that is the cause.

Hi Jake Lo.   I did but no difference.  What I did now is I got rid of some Apps that could be the culprits, starting with Dr Cleaner app.   I'll see how it well it works tomorrow at work and then post my results.

I did that as well Bronxteck but made no difference.  To note after removing Dr. Cleaner and booting into safe mode two nights ago, my computer hasn't crashed again.  But then again I didn't use it to extensively yesterday.  


I'll keep you posted.  Thanks to everyone for the suggestions.



it does appear that the Dr. Cleaner app was the issue or part of the problem on High Sierra***


3 days now and no system crashes.  Although it did appear to lock up for a few seconds a few times, but never to the point that it became unresponsive and hence requiring a reboot.



 I reinstalled the OS via Time Machine Back up, all is working very well again, just like it was in Sierra.

      Welcome to OSXL! 😀
      We, at OSXL, are a bunch of passionate Hackintoshers who have joined together for creating a community to drive learning, sharing and helping people interested in running Apple Mac software or tinkering with it on non-Apple hardware. We do research and development on a voluntary basis in our free time.
      Since its inception in 2010, our team evolved with people joining and going for all sorts of reasons. Nevertheless, this team brought out some of the best people who contributed to making the Hackintosh community progress. Unlike some other players, we’re very proud to we have consistently offered an ad-free website without calling for financial support, except on very rare occasions, and also made one of the best looking sites.😍 
      Back in the days, we also designed our "EDP" project to provide a common OS X installation package and a unified post-installation tool. EDP basically offered a central hub for system tuning. The project went through several phase and the latest one is currently Work In Progress. We also completed some research work and developed drivers, fixes and patches for some hardware.
      We recently revamped our site to a more modern look and implemented latest security features so to give our members an improvise quality of experience.
      Also, we are looking to expand for diversifying the content on our site not only to Apple OS, but also Linux, Android and Windows in the very near future with research and development as tech industry has changed a lot recent years and there is so much we can do in other areas and be relevant to what we do. 
      We are looking for passionate and dedicated people who can invest time and efforts in our community on projects like EDP and many others. 
      Drop us a line here in comments or through PM if interested so that we can chat about motivation, skills and ideas.
