Hey guys had to digg this topic, so sorry about that, to my problem.<br />
<br />
i am now trying to fix my ATI Mobility radeon 5650 to work on Lion 10.7, but no dice.<br />
<br />
I followed the tutorial on this page (and more like 4 or 5 different tutorials on other places) but in the end, i ended up with the 1024x768 (that lovely resolution LOL)<br />
<br />
so here is what i did i have 10.7.0 installed on my sony vaio VPCEB1S1E its a core i5 430m which also has some sort of intel integrated graphics and runs with our ATI 5650m, well after installing lion, i fixed most of everything, and am now stuck with graphics, what i did was boot into windows extracted the EDID using MonInfo convert it from Hex to base64 then got that file from \System\Library\Display and so the 714 file if i am not mistaken pasted the string into the correct spot between the data tags, and rebooted, on chimera (version that came with ###### can-t remember which one now) i booted with AtiConfig=Hoolock GraphicsEnabler=yes and back on desktop it was the same, same 1024x768 no QE/CI, i don&#39;t know what i am doing wrong...<br />
I also would like to point act the following on system information the Graphic/Display is detected as following:<br />
Type: GPU<br />
Bus: PCIe<br />
PCIe Lane Width: x16<br />
VRAM (Total): 3 MB<br />
Vendor: ATI (0x1002)<br />
Device ID: 0x68c1<br />
Revision ID: 0x0000<br />
Displays:<br />
Internal LCD Forced EDID:<br />
Resolution: 1024 x 768<br />
Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)<br />
Main Display: Yes<br />
Mirror: Off<br />
Online: Yes<br />
<br />
It never detects it as ATI Mobility Radeon 5650 like i have seen in some videos.<br />
I also noticed that the DeviceID+Vendor ID making it 0x68c11002 is NOT on the ATI5000Controller.kext so i decided to add it, same luck no dice.<br />
I never added the ATI files cause they are on Lion so there is no need to add them on System\Library\Extensions, also same for the boot file, never used it since chimera/chamelon now detects the GPU, which can clearly be seen on bootup before i changed the org.chameleon.plist it would say ATI5650 and Aticonfig Eulumer or something like that which was one of the profiles, i then changed the chameleon.plist to hoolock like i said above, and it did change on boot so i know that is working! it now says AtiConfig=Hoolock, Also as you can see by the Display name i already did the EDID hack as you can see the display is called internal LCD forced EDID, so why is it not working?<br />
is it chimera? is EDID hack that apparently is working fine (and showing the monitor name as it should) is it the framebuffer? is it the intelGraphics messing with my ati? should i delete them? (but then again card is detected as Vendor ATI) how should i proceed?<br />
<br />
hope you guys can help out <img alt=":)" class="bbc_emoticon" src="http://www.insanelym...ault/smile.png" /><br />

Hi all, just thought I should add my input here.

I have a Dell Studio 1749 which I have installed iAtkos L2 on. I have been trying to sort out the EDID part of this guide but it never boots into the correct resolution. So I am currently installing W7 to another hard drive to get the correct EDID information, and hopefully it will fix this!

Awesome guide guys. Managed to get QE/CI without SwitchresX. However, the only thing keeping me from enjoying my working graphics is the cpus=1 setting. I think samukbg managed to fixed it on a HP envy. I suppose it's DSDT related. Anyone with the same issue? 5650 graphics card and I3,5,7?

Could anyone get this working with FULL HD (1920x1080) screen?
Please let me know the framebuffer used in that case?
I've had a partial luck.. it works sometimes but not always.. let's say once in 10 reboots.. all other times I could just see scrambled display.. with GraphicsEnabler=No it works always but obviously without QE/CI

Hello all, I'm lost.

I do not know that more tests I can perform. I followed your guidelines for "Custom ati kexts" but I do not get the right combination.

I have an Acer Aspire 7741G with screen 17" (1600x900x32) with Ati mobility 5650 and I can not work with GraphicsEnabler = Yes

I have created a forum thread with all the details of my numerous tests.

Please, can anyone help me?

Hello guys. Please help me. I have integrated video card, and cant disable it in bios. Can somehow block it in DSDT or forced to boot from ati?

Has anyone tried Mountain Lion with this graphics card? I'll give it a try and post my findings here. Also would appreciate if someone could help me drop the cpus=1 flag from my system.

cpus=1 is not an issue anymore on Mountain Lion DP4 for me. I got full QE/CI but didn't have to use the full method described here. I did use my base 64 EDID file, didn't use the boot file, no DSDT, other ATi kext then ML provided already. Instalation method was myhack 3.1. One thing to solve is the use of myhack USB stick to boot up the system. Installed Chameleon keeps restarting. Have to check myhack chameleon version.

I have finally got full resolution & QE/CI on my Sony Vaio VPCEB3M1 using ATI HD 5650 thanks to you guys. However though, the boot file and Chamaleon r875 did break the VoodooPS2 support. So now I am left with no trackpad on my laptop, and the only way I had to make it to work was using VoodooPS2 and Chameleon-2.1svn-r1902.

I was wondering if anyone could compile a boot file with ATI5650 ID for that Chamaleon, or another version that wont break VoodooPS2.

Here's my GPU info and ID

and here is the Chamaleon version I would need the boot file created for

You can get mine here. This is extracted from Sony VAIO EB2 series running on ATI 5650M. Not sure if it is safe to use if your manufacturer is different.

I would be very lucky to hear from you that you've got 1080p screen on your lappie.

Hi guys

I have been trying to get this to work on my ACER with 5650M graphics.. however i get the blue screen all the time after i boot... if i boot with -x (Safe mode) it boots with correct resolution! any idea on how i can solve this? i followed the tutorial step by step.. so im guessing if it works on safe mode then there is a way to make it work without -x?

im using aticonfig=hoolock with gfenabler=yes...

hope you guys can help!
