Hi kizwan,

Based on this thread, it seems that 9600M-GT works with QE and CI on acer 7730G (http://www.insanelym...howtopic=157496) , and I've found link for its vga bios:

Well Kizwan I guess you can keep up the good work with trying to get video working on this laptop. I'm going to try to figure out a solution to get at least audio out to function whether its with DSDT or figuring out a way with voodooHDA. If you need anything from the VPCF115FM laptop just ask and I'll get back to you asap.

Hi Beaups,

Hey thanks for checking in with us all and explaining the situation to us. Well, at least you got "the most" working VAIO of all. I'm so glad you posted today; I thought there was something to your DSDT file and was going to spend (make that WASTE) the rest of the day trying to figure out how to make it work on my VPCF115FM. So I will stop.

Looks like mine is going on eBay and tomorrow I'm going to buy the HP DV8T with the massive 18" 1920x1080 screen from Costco.

Sorry to all VPCF115FM owners; if I'm not able to get this thing working before it sells on eBay, then I will be abandoning my support for it and switching my time and efforts to the DV8T.

Mammoth

p.s. I've always hated Sony and have refused to buy anything Sony for the last 15 years. This was Sony's chance to win me back; they have failed. I will never, every buy Sony products again. DONE!

@SONY On your F series laptops (and others while we are at it), F U!


Hi Mammoth,

Thanks to you and Beaups for all your hard work and research on the Sony F series. I just placed a order for HP dv8t. I'm eagerly waiting for your work on dv8t and wanted to follow your footsteps in making a hackintoshed dv8t. Are you going to start a new thread on dv8t tutorial or did you already start one?

Thanks.

The EDID from my VPCF115FM btw..

Got this one from display asset manager:

Start Attribute
	  Name = "Raw EDID w/o header"
	  ID = 13
	  Type = String(240)
	  Storage = Specific
	  Value = "367F2500000000002D0C010490241400EAA8E099574B92251C505400000001010101010101010101010101010101403880B4703840403C3C550068C810000018403880807138AA408080880068C810000018000000FC004E76696469612044656661756C000000FC007420466C61742050616E656C00001F"

Hi Phantom, I have uploaded V3 package for ALC275 at post #1. Please try & let me know the results. Your OS X should be able to boot & enter GUI but if it doesn't, I'm afraid I can't do anything about it. Good luck. ;)

Hi MacMan,

Thanks for your coments and suppot. Yes, I plan on starting a new thread and will convert all my work and documentation over to the DV8T.

Today was a good day; I placed my order for my DV8T AND my VAIOhazard sold on eBay! : )

My build date is supposed to be the 10th, so it will be about 2 weeks probably before I get it.

I will make a post here once I get the new thread going.

Unfortunately I didn't find any useful info from the ROM file. However, if you want to, you can try to override the GPU BIOS with the ACER one. All you need to do is:-
1) Rename the ROM file to ACER.ROM
2) Put ACER.ROM file in root directory of your OS X partition (/ACER.ROM)
3) Edit com.apple.Boot.plist file & add these entry:-
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
	<string>Yes</string>
	<key>VideoROM</key>
	<string>ACER.ROM</string>
	<key>VBIOS</key>
	<string>Yes</string>

However I doubt it will works. ;)

hi all
i find another thing:

i drop dsdt from vista with dsdtse windows and there different than those from dsdtse from osx
[codebox] Device (PCI0)
{
Method (_INI, 0, NotSerialized)
{
Store (Zero, ^LPCB.SNC.XECR)
Store (Zero, ^LPCB.SNC.SNBF)
}

Method (_S3D, 0, NotSerialized)
{
Return (0x02)
}

Method (_S4D, 0, NotSerialized)
{
Return (0x02)
}
[/codebox]

[codebox]
Method (_Q26, 0, NotSerialized)
{
P8XH (Zero, 0x26)
Notify (SNC, 0x90)
}

Method (_Q27, 0, NotSerialized)
{
P8XH (Zero, 0x27)
Notify (SNC, 0x90)
}

Method (_Q28, 0, NotSerialized)
{
P8XH (Zero, 0x28)
If (LEqual (OSYS, 0x07D6))
{
Notify (^^^PEGP.NGFX, 0x81)
}
Else
{
Notify (SNC, 0x91)
[/codebox]

so on the dsd.dsl from vista they are many times appears the mention snc
and when i compile to aml
and place them to extrathe verbose boot show display matching fails many times but don t boot

may be a tracks if needed i can post my two dsdt if someone would compare
but i think if you get vaio you can do it better than i

regards

I should've purchased a Z instead, lol. It appears to have everything I would've wanted, except the 1920x1080 15"+ screen :blink:

But even on the Z you wouldn't be able to control the brightness.

Sorry for late responses, I will test your new audio fix once the laptop is back. Anything else you would like for me to do?

Kizwan,

Tried V3, no luck. but I found the issue is due to the DSDT file so I'm going to look into yours and one of mine and see iff there is anyway we can make it work.

DANG! I wish I still had my VPCF115FM just so I could test this!

Could someone who DOES please test this and report your findings?

@Kizwan (& others)

I found this very interesting link which talks about getting a Vaio P series laptop to work at native resolution. Perhaps this will be of help:

Hi Mammoth,

Have you got your new dv8t? There is no way for me to know whether you started a new thread for dv8t. Please let me know.

Thanks for all your hard work and thanks for your assistance.

Thanks.

I will let you know once I get the new thread going.

Hey this is a long shot, but have the idea of using Phoenix EDID Designer been used yet?
