I posted some basic stuff, not about the 9500 per se but should be helpful anyway, especially for noobs:

Thanks. I have a question about the device ID for the 9500. If I put the card in, I got blank screen. Is there a way to run it at the boot loader level?

Boot with -s, follow the on screen instructions to verify and mount the filesystem and you can work from there.

You might also be able to boot in safe mode with -x (this would be the easiest way)

Or boot from your install DVD with the required files on a USB stick, mount your system hard drive and the USB stick and work from there.

Or.. use Mac Drive or Transmac on a Windows installation to access your OS X install..

Thanks. I found out I do get video at the VGA port (no video on DVI and HDMI). Not sure if it has something to do with adding NVinject to /extra/extensions or not.

My system profile show the same information as post #14 of this thread.

The injected NVCAP value is wrong.

Use NVEnabler instead of NVInject.

Thanks. NVEnabler ( http://www.kexts.com..._nvenabler.html )got me a step further. Now I have video on my VGA and HDMI, just not the DVI port.

UPDATE: After I removed the VGA cable and reboot, I got signal at the DVI port but HDMI signal is gone also.

Something crazy is going on in my PC. I can get video off the DVI port of the 9500GT with NVEnabler but Parallels no longer work. I did uninstall/re-install and the result is still the same. When I start the app, it pops up for a second and then just disappear. If I put my old 7900GS card back in, I am able to run it after uninstall/re-install. Very strange.

Does this has something to do with I don't have video on the HDMI port?

No idea. I know lots of people are having trouble with HDMI after updating to 10.5.3.

Parallels 5.0 works fine for me.

It's possible that Parallels just needs to be reinstalled to detect and work with the newer video card. Maybe deleting the configuration files will work too, if you can find them. The only thing that's important is the hard drive image you use for your virtual machine, and that stays where it is even after uninstalling Parallels, you're not going to lose anything except for the settings and stuff.

Let me know if uninstalling and reinstalling Parallels fixes your problem.

uninstall/re-install while the 9500 is in the system did not work. Re-installation ran through without error and it was able to detect the existing Win drive image. Somehow it seems to be crashed when Win VM is starting. Every time I tried to run Parallels, it went through the initial startup but I never see the desktop before the whole thing disappear.
