Hello everyone,

Thankyou for reading. Let me start by explaining the situation. Im a university student studying music, and I was in the university studio for a few hours recording vocal tracks for an assignment I’ve been working on. I was using the latest version of mountain lion, Cubase Artist 6.5, with Steinberg CI2+ audio interface and an M-audio Solaris condenser. Everything went fine, with no issues, until the time to packup came. I disconnected everything in the following order, lowering all volumes, switching off phantom power, shutting off cubase, disconnecting mic, and disconnecting audio interface. That’s where the problem began, as soon as I disconnected the usb cable of the CI2+ the computer immediately crashed bringing a grey screen that I had never seen before. I don’t recall word for word what it wrote but it was something along the lines of “Your computer has crashed, press any button to continue” and it restarted with an error message which I am pasting here. I couldn’t send the error message due to lack of internet there so I copied it here. Everything since has been working fine however, and no files were lost (So no hard disk damage)

Error message:

In the first paragraph I can spot a "
Fault CR2: 0x00000001018ee000, Error code: 0x0000000000000000, Fault CPU: 0x4" is my cpu damaged?!?
As you can all probably relate, I’m very sensitive to my macbook and errors. I still have around a month and a half left of my warranty. I want to ask the community, is this something I should look into? If anyone official could also answer this I would be deeply grateful.

I have also posted this in the apple community, but wanted to share it here too as its relevant.
