Hi

I recently installed Leo4allv3 on my pc:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
1024 DDR2 667 Mhz Memory
NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT
80 gb Samsung IDE drive

and a Gigabyte M61PM-S2 motherboard...

I installed the 10.5.2 nvidia kexts and the Nvinject 0.2.1
and i worked fine 800x600 at 75 refresh rate...
But when i try to switch to 1024x768 or 1152x864 the screen goes blue and i have to remove all drivers in single user to get it working again...
I tried installing no driver at all and it works fine with 1024x768 at 75 refresah rate...
In one attempt of reinstalling the drivers the display was working at 1024x768 at 60 hz refresh rate(thats what it should be) and it was everything ok until i try to switch to 1152x864 then the blue screen came back and i had to remove everything once again...
So if anyone have any idea of what might be going on, please help me
Maybe it's a refresh rate issue, but i'm not sure..

Thanks in advance...

Try "NVInstallerV.41.pkg". (Search the forums). I have an nVIDIA based 8500GT 512MB card working with all resolutions supported, QE/CI and hardware acceleration. It might be a good idea to remove all the kexts Nvinject has substituted before attempting the NVInstaller update though.

Good luck.
Andy.

did you still have the problems with changing the resolution? (the blue screen with nothing on it) ?
