I've tried uninstalling, but I do what? The chart that I'm using now is the ATI,
with GPU-Z gave the message "Bios reading not supported on this device" and with AIDA64, he extracts the intel HD. If someone could attach the rom with the same characteristics as these: DEV: 6760 VEN: 1002 subsys: 04C11028. Thanks

http://smackerelofop...dump-video.html try this. Use ati address instead of the hd 3000 one.

almost same status here for enabling LVDS on HP Elitebook 8460p...
I have patched ati.c with the card id and vendor/subsustem and compile the last chameleon trunk with xcode command line tools.

When launching with GraphicsEnabler=Yes and a VGA screen connected on the subd15, the LVDS screen and the vga crt are BOTH recognized and attached to ATY,ATY_RadeonFramebuffer@0 and @1 respectively.
the first screen contains the menu bar, and the vga screen is just a background picture.
by using Monitor Pref, I was able to miror the LCD screen to the VGA screen.
qe/ci fully working. the LCD EDID is loaded and the LCD resolution can reach 1600x900.
but the LCD remains desesperately BLACK... logically it works, but not physically.
forgot to mention that the 6470M apears in the System Info as "HD 6xxx"

then I have patched the Hydrilla framebuffer in ATI6000Controler.kext with the 20 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 and various value for the LVDS on the first port, and the 10 00 00 00 blabla. for the vga on port 5.

when launchng with GraphicsEnabler=Yes AtiConfig=Hydrilla, then the card is recognized as "HD 6470M" and I get almost the same result than without the AtiConfig parameter... BLACK LCD

I have also extraced the ATI Register value with Aida64 (on windows 7) but I cannot find a register where the value gives any result in the LVDS framebuffer ...

one direction could be to review the source code for the linux drivers in order to understand how the framebuffer value are calculated
I put this on hold for couple of days and hope you guys will make some progress :)

Hello Guys,

Any Progress on AMD Radeon HD 6470M LVDS fix??

I am on a HP Elitebook 8460p with Mountain Lion (10.8.3) installed. I am using a VGA monitor as the LVDS is not completely functional. Without any modding to the Graphics kexts, I can see the following in System Information/Graphics.

Attached File  Graphics_System Information.png   37.17KB   30 downloads

And the Display Preferences.

Attached File  Display Preferences.png   295.09KB   60 downloads

VGA is working without any issues. LVDS shows only half of the desktop spanned across entire screen in scrambled colours. Attached a screenshot of my VGA ad a snap of the LVDS.

Attached File  VGA.png   798.24KB   40 downloads

Attached File  LVDS.png   662.28KB   38 downloads

I have tried many of the AtiConfig=FrameBuffer without any positive results. None of them got the LVDS even half working like now and some of them disabled my VGA also.Hoping for a solution to this LVDS problem pretty soon.

Thanks in advance for any sort of help.
Srinu

Nah, I don't believe it works without issues. GraphicsInjector is not the right way to enable 6470M/7670M.. Check your colour depth - normally with graphics injector you get only 16bits.

It might still be 16bit colour even though it says 32bits. Check with this test: http://www.lagom.nl/...st/gradient.php

If you see smooth change from black to white and from white to black, it's ok. But if you see 32 bands instead, display works in 16 bits mode.
