@ banini_jeque


for PNY Geforce 210 your strings only works on HDMI in Safe Mode. Normal mode blank screen on both outputs.

Any suggestions? I'm going loco ;)

Need some help. Installed and got most of the stuff to work except issue with video card. Everything worked fine on my westinghouse 42" lcd tv but then I hooked it up to my 73" dlp mitsubishi and I got issues. The weird part is that it works fine in safe mode with the ##### disk. But if I do a regular boot on ##### disc the screen turns blue like it has no signal. If I try and boot from hard drive it will do the blue screen no matter if I do safe mode or not. Does anybody know what I can try? I used megabeast and installed nvidia inject and also tried efi studio 9800gt.
Also it worked when I restarted after snow leopard install. But then once I did the update to 10.6.2 and performed ##### install it stopped working.

here is how you make it work for the following graphics cards: GeForce GTX 295, Quadro CX, Quadro FX 5800, Quadro FX 4800, GeForce 8800 GTS 512, GeForce GTS 240, GeForce 9800M GTX, GeForce GTX 280M, GeForce 9800M GT, GeForce GTS 250, GeForce 9800M GTX, GeForce GTX 260M, Quadro FX 3800M, GeForce 9600 GSO 512, GeForce 9700M GT, GeForce 9650M GT, GeForce GT 130M, Quadro FX 380, Quadro FX 580, Quadro FX 1700M, Quadro FX 770M, GeForce 9300 GE, GeForce G 105M, GeForce G 103M, Quadro NVS 420, Quadro FX 370 LP, Quadro NVS 450, Quadro NVS 295, GeForce 210, GeForce GT 230M, GeForce GT 240M, GeForce 205, GeForce 310, GeForce 210, GeForce 310, GeForce G210M, Quadro FX 380 LP, GeForce GT 240, GeForce GTS 260M, GeForce GTS 250M

i don't have much time but here is are the basics:

I think you need to be running 10.6.3. You might also need http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1026 , but I am pretty sure you won't. If you do, you will need to install Pacifist and open the .pkg with Pacifist and install it that way, to bypass the check that the computer is a macbook pro.

Download Chameleon RC5 prerelease 12: http://www.insanelym...p...st&id=67665

Install using the following guide: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=164809

Boot with GraphicsEnabler=y

everything should work :) (even if GraphicsEnabler has never worked for you)

@motasoft, did you update to 10.6.3 and install the .pkg that Apple provides? Also, using other nVidia solutions (nvenabler.kext, efi strings) will interfere with GraphicsEnabler.

@ogr You shouldn't need an efi string if you use my methods.

I bought an EVGA GeForce GT 240 about a week ago, and had a problem with getting a full screen view upon a Samsung UN32C6500 32" TV. I had about 1" gap at the sides, and about 1/2" at the bottom. When I was able to get it into full screen mode, I wasn't able to perform any functions at all, but was able to do so, when I was in safe mode. I made a few changes to a few files, and hosed up that installation. I loaded it again last night, and I used the NVidia G200 series Drivers for the EVGA Cards, as well as the other G200 option, along with the NVidia Enablers. When it rebooted, I was in full screen mode, and I am now able to function in normal mode. I quickly created a back up of the configuration. After the back up, I rebooted the machine, and it is working quite well now. I'm running in true high def....HDMI to HDMI, "1920x1080x32". I checked the system settings, and the Quartz Extreme is active. One thing that I did notice in checking the settings is that, it doesn't recognize the board model, but hey it's working, who cares?! I learned some things in the process after playing around a bit with it.....I was never able to play chess on the machine...I could open up the game, but not play it, cause the pieces wouldn't move. I didn't know how important the Quartz Extreme function was until last night. Another thing that wasn't working was my screen saver...whenever I tried to set it on other installations (different hardware set up), it would tell me that the screen saver kexts could not be loaded. Another facet of having Quartz Extreme active. I just built this machine over the past several weeks. BTW, I'm using Mac OS X iATKOS 10.5.7.....here is the setup......


Motherboard: MSI NF750-G55
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz
Memory: Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C8, 2x2GB 1600, Latency 8-8-8-24
Video: EVGA GeForce GT 240, 1GB DDR3
HDD: WD WD10EARS, 1TB, 64MB Cache, 5400-7200RPM (IntelliPower Drive)

The second code works with DSDT.

Hi, I'm trying to get my G210 (ECS Elite Group) to work. I assume that I should add this into the empty space for Device (PEGP) after Device (GFX0) in my decompiled DSDT.aml that DSDT Patcher 1.0.1e generates (so into the dsdt_fixed.txt file). However, when I put
./iasl -ta ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt
into Terminal to recompile the new DSDT.aml, I get errors from the compiler
../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13788:	 If (SS1)
 Error	4095 -					 ^ syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_IF
 
 ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13832:			 \_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SIOS (Arg0)
 Error	4063 -						Object does not exist ^  (\_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SIOS)
 
 ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13833:			 \_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SPTS (Arg0)
 Error	4063 -						Object does not exist ^  (\_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SPTS)
 
 ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13834:			 \_SB.PCI0.NPTS (Arg0)
 Error	4063 -				   Object does not exist ^  (\_SB.PCI0.NPTS)
 
 ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13840:		 \_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SIOW (Arg0)
 Error	4063 -					Object does not exist ^  (\_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SIOW)
 
 ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13841:		 \_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SWAK (Arg0)
 Error	4063 -					Object does not exist ^  (\_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SWAK)
 
 ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13842:		 \_SB.PCI0.NWAK (Arg0)
 Error	4063 -			   Object does not exist ^  (\_SB.PCI0.NWAK)

I don't get these errors when I recompile the DSDT that DSDT Patcher generates. What is the problem?

Also, is this DSDT part really important to make your EFI string work? Because I already tried your EFI String (with my own PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x3,0x0) and it didn't work. Parts of Finder appeared, and the menubar was translucent, but I couldn't click anything. Same with the first G210 EFI string posted here.

GraphicsEnabler doesn't work for me, I have it set to n.\

Thanks

Thank you !

Well I have a G210 and I have spent days trying to get it working, with no success yet. I think it would be better to get the 9500GT, as more people have gotten that working. But don't count on it being a fast install. I think the best option would be to buy 3 video cards, get the easiest one working, and sell the other two...

No I'm a beginner... all I know is that the G210 was a bad choice.

SUCCES!!!

I just got my EVGA GT240 to boot with no black screen and identify correctly!!
I tried everything previous and nothing worked... I was ready to give up.

I started with a flash drive using MyHack 1.1.
Then I installed MyHack on the hard drive.
Then I replaced myHack with the AsereBLN v1.1.9 booter.

Pure Vanilla install with 10.6.2 CD then online updated to 10.6.4
There is a difference between 6.2 and 6.4... this didn't work till I upgraded to 6.4.
Then I used the new evga graphics drivers for the GT285/GT200 series. downloaded from EVGA's site.

I had to open the contents of the package file from EVGA and install each package manually then rebooted and bingo a 240 recognized and working perfect. All acceleration and resolutions working.

Thanks to MyHack!!! his was the first system that worked to get me into osx far enough to diagnose my problems.

Now everything is functioning even my firewire and sound thanks to VoodoHDA.

Don't give up it's possible to get a 240 working :D

Okay, I have my ECS SilentSeries G210 mostly working - QE/CL is working, and I can change resolutions without getting the blue screen. I haven't tested DVI, HDMI, or dual monitors yet.

Here's how I did it:
-10.6.4 combo updater
-Got rid of my previous EFI string and set GraphicsEnabler=n in com.Apple.Boot.plist
-Installed NVEnabler 64.kext
-Added my device ID to NVDAResman.kext and NVDANV50hal.kext

Z. Horváth, what have you added exactly?

In the info.plist of NVDANV50Hal.kext I added the following to the IOPCIPrimaryMatch string:
0x0a6510de&amp;0xfff0ffff
because my device ID was 0a65 (DPCIManager helped me find this)

In the info.plist of NVDAResman.kext I added the following to the IOPCIPrimaryMatch string:
0x0a6510de&amp;0xfff8ffff

I don't know what the significance of the 0xfff0ffff or 0xfff8ffff stuff is, or even if I have these 100% correct, I just tried them and it worked (so far). In either case I just added those IDs, I didn't delete the ones that were already there.
