Hi!

I see alot of posts here about the Atheros WLAN not being "fixable" and that you need to change it. Does that mean physically changing the hardware?

Anyway, I stumbled upon this: http://www.filebuzz....er_for_Mac.html

Could that work?

I think you have no chance with that software. But who knows, you can try it

BTW, nobb1x has updated his kext for ethernet lan bcm 5764. Auto detecting mac adress, 64-bit and 10.6.3 support enabled.

Oh my God I can't believe that. The sound is crystal clear with that kext http://www.kexts.com...8_hd_audio.html

Some updates.
Sound is working just after sleep, as I understand it's something wrong with usb drivers. I think that right path in dsdt will solve this problem.
Second thing is that sound working just for output, no auto-detecting headphones, no mic (external or internal), no digital outputs.

Is someone of you could send me your dsdt-file for comparison.

Hi!

Someone can help-me with that sound card?

I tried any kexts for that sound card, but at the VoodooHDA i have a full noise sound, and with the AppleHDA posted here the sound card isn´t recognized.

I saw that everybody has problem with the lan and wlan cards on that pc, but here it is natively enabled. i think that my 5737z bought in Portugal has a different hardware...

Attached File  DSDTSE_1.app.zip   3.48MB   80 downloads
Attached File  dsdt.aml.zip   14.32KB   88 downloads

install dsdt with dsdtse, remove applehda.kext from extension folder and install voodoohda with kext helper

reboot and your done

i'm using a fresh retail installation using empire efi and myHack1.1 for bootloader and snow 10.6.4

Hi guys, sorry to dig up that old topic but that's the only one that helped me so far!

How did you manage to enable QE/CI?
I'm currently on SL with iAtkos v7 S3, got it all working (sound, wifi etc) but no way I can turn QE on. I tried all the kexts I found and different apps like Quartz Debug but no luck so far :(

Weird thing is I got semi transparent drop down menus in menu bar, and other graphic accelerated signs (different resolutions, I've got the highest possible, cursor shadow, chess app working, etc). I can't get Quartz 2D to work either...

My Nvidia card (Geforce 9400M G) is also fully recognized in System profiler.

So please if any of you guys 5737z users managed to enable QE, I'd really appreciate some help XD
Thanks a lot

Please help.What do I identify if the drivers installed on Acer Aspire 5720? I installed the iATKOS version 10.6.3. After installing the Snow Leopard I will play the introductory melody and nothing further. Appear to me the configuration table is still only a blue screen and plays music. Version 10.5.7 my work.

Hi I've got video working by NVEnabler64.kext, but it works only at 10.6.3. (If you need it, can download from kexs.com)
I've installed upgrade to 10.6.5, and can't get video with full QE/CI support any more.

Hi, I tried that NVEnabler 64.kext but osx86 tool won't install it so I installed it with Kext Helper, but no chance it's booting up normally then displays a flashing blue and then white screen. I can still hear starting sounds (skype etc) but the display is stuck on that flashing white screen.
I also tried with NVEnabler (non 64 version), but it does the same thing...
What I forgot to mention is that even without these kexts, I can't boot normally. I always use boot argument "-f". If I try to boot normally it will display that very same white flashing screen... Does it have to do with my problem?
Weird thing is my Nvidia card is recognized...

Do you have any idea?

Thanks for replying

UP !


Edit: I can enable QE with osx86 tool after repairing permissions for kexts but it asks for reboot to be effective.. However after restart, QE is still not enabled and of course not active...
Any idea?
