Sorry, I was thinking to get this card (moving from my MSI 7300GT)
But this is my XBench result now (only OpenGL test):

i have a Zotac 9400GT

I read somewhere that XBench is not working well in 10.6. Is that true?
I ran the OpenGL Extensions test - My results
Benchmark test
  • 1.1 - 429
  • 1.2 - 428
  • 1.3 - 349
  • 1.4 - 278
  • 1.5 - 276
  • 2.0 - 238
  • 2.1 - 89

Do others with a 9400GT have something similar?

I get a blue screen when I change resolution. I have to reboot for the changed resolution to take hold. Any ideas? BTW, FrontRow works great - I guess the card is working well.

Seems all I needed to do was to add to my com.apple.boot.plist was 'GraphicsEnabler = Yes'. Got everything, QE/CI, full detection, etc.

I hope this is help to at least one other person.


I hope it will too, for me :rolleyes:

Your Card Asus nVidia 9400 GT 512mb PCI-e with VGA and DVI?
Is that this one EN9400GT SILENT/DI/512MD2/V2?

@everyone
What about those ones, are those working to completely also with HDMI?
Asus EN9400GT SilentDI/512MD2 - SKU: 90-C1CLMA-J0UAYAKZ
EN9400GT/DI/512MD2 (LP)

What about this one, is this working to completely also with HDMI?
Asus EN9400GT 512MB/DVI/HDMI/LP
GeForce 9400 GT op 550MHz met 512MB DDR2
SKU: 90-C1CLNA-J0UAN00Z

Please let me/us know if everything is working under osx 10.6, like QE/CI, full detection, DVI ports, resolution

@tonymacx86
Your Sparkle 9400 GT with 1gb of RAM DVI/VGA/TV-OUT is that this one:
SF-PX94GT512U2-HP-Passive

Please, this is not only usefull for me but for everyone.

Thanks.

I want to order one asap. My ASUS 7300GT silent is't working well, just 1024*1280.

Can anyone help me to install this PCI videocard correctly to use all functions????

Thank you very much!!!

I also have that blue screen usually in boot and sometimes changing the resolution. I also own Zotac 9400GT. What I do is just turn off the monitor for 3-5 seconds then turn it back on. That doesn't make sense but it works.

Are you using Snow? Are you using injectors like NVEnabler 64.kext or just using EFI string?

How do you connect your computer to the monitor. Mine is DVI to DVI. If you're using DVI to DVI to connect your computer to the monitor, could you please share your efi string.

I also tried modified NVCAP using NVFlash (in xp) + NVCAP Maker. But I get black screen with my real NVCAP, I dont get black screen if I use VGA to DVI nvcap. Really weird. I'll shoot you a PM as well.

I can attest that the GraphicsEnabler=yes works for QE/CI in 10.6.2 with vanilla kexts. Although, it doesn't recognize TV-out and mirroring. For this, the only method that works roll back Geforce and NV kexts (9 total) to 10.6.1, then install both NVEnabler and NVEnabler 64 into System/Library/Extensions.

Don't ask me why, but it works! Full acceleration and mirroring with S-video TV-out

My card is a low end Sparkle 9400 GT with 1gb of RAM DVI/VGA/TV-OUT


Hi I saw your post re video card success and was wondering what method you used..
Are you saying that you used both a GFX string via os86 tools AND the nvenabler texts? to get dual monitor support?
did you additionally have to add your device ID anywhere?
I have been trying to get my 9400gt board working which is an XFX geforce board 9400gt with 512mb ram but cannot get dual monitor out with vga and dvi at same time but Open GL seems to indicate nvidia graffics is working
my system is also 10.6.2 and I am stuck right now
thanks for any info

I've had no joy with my Gainward 512mb 9400GT... I've tried

NVinject
NVEnabler 64
MacNuttys 9400GT Drivers
EFI String

Basically, I'm wanting to utilise the HDMI output of the graphics card, purely for video, as it's going to my Denon AV Receiver, and I'm sending Sound via Optical (or would if I could get video working!)

The closes I got was with MacNuttys drivers, however output was only available via DVI :(

Is it possible to get HDMI output working? and has anyone else had any joy with the Gainward?

Currently I have a completely working Snow Leopard install on a stock HP Pavillion a6010n (specifications here).

I was wondering how would I go about upgrading? Just find some kext for GeForce 9400 GT? I was looking through some older threads and a lot of the links people posted about the 9400 GT were broken because they were so old. Do I need to uninstall my GMA 950 kexts for my GeForce 9400 GT to work?

any help is appreciated, thanks.

Johneh, as you can see there is a huge, sticky thread dealing with the Geforce 9400 GT already. I don't believe it is invisible.

I got my BFG 9400GT w/1 GB working (QE / Resolution change) via EFI String. It was generated and populated into com.apple.boot.plist via OSXTools.

I'm using Chameleon RC4 and didn't use any added Kexts.

Hey I have a question?!

I currently have a 9800GT, on 64-bit 10.6.2 and it works perfectly!

If I buy a GTX 200 series card, will it work on 64-bit kernel? and Can I get my old 9800gt to work with it, I really want to get them both to work so I can use the 9800GT for a PhyX card on windows, but still have the two cards working on snow leopard, So I can have lots of graphics Processing resources, when virtualizing windows via parrallels/wmware

I really want to know soon, because if there is absolutely no way to get it to work I will sell my 9800gt, but I don't want to if I don't have to
