Try put this kexts in S/L/E
Repair permissions an reboot


Thanks for the Kexts. I'll try these shortly and post the result. One more thing, after deleting the DSDT.aml i have lost the Brightness control slider somehow. If you know how to recover that as well then help would be really appreciated.

Cheers.

Once again I am very grateful to you. Your provided DSDT.aml is working great and i have got my brightness control back. However, I am still unable to get RTL-8167 working. Last thing, is there any way to permanently check the USE SSE2 and Enhance Stereo options in VoodooHDA pref. so that crackling sound can be avoided.

Thanks in advance.

Is there any way to improve the battery life on this laptop (Dell N5110) using lion? I am getting around 2 hours on max battery.

SOLVED:
Solution: Ediito info.plist in VooDooHDA Kext, see http://www.insanelym...howtopic=241965

The problem: After installing 10.7 Lion when I turn it of KP or freezes, then turn it off, KP or freezes, then turn it off and it works.

It takes 3-6 resets it to function normally.

Config
Dell Inspiron 15r
Core i7
8 GB Ram
600 GB HD
bios: A9 (A7 and A8 equals problem)

Installation
Retail Lion
Install Chamaleon (tested latest version, no result)
Install Chimera (tested latest version, no result)
DSDT for i7 by Maldon.

Install ##### for Lion (VoodooHDA 0.2.7.3, FakeSMC, NullCPUPM, PS/2 Keyboard and Trackpad, RealTek kext)

Any idea ?

Is there any way to improve the battery life on this laptop (Dell N5110) using lion? I am getting around 2 hours on max battery.


Same here. I am getting 2:30 expected/estimated remaining battery time on 10.7.3 at 100% charge without any CPU load (running Temp Monitor and Activity Monitor only) - both on Voodoo battery kext and native OSX kext (patched). In Windows 7 Ultimate I get 4-5 hours expected/estimated remaining battery time (again at 100% charge without any CPU load).

While I realize this also depends on how the remaining time is measured in Windows 7 vs OS X Lion but I have a strong impression that the battery holds at least 1 hour longer in Windows 7 under regular load (internet browsing on forums - no video or animations etc.). I thought it was related to speedstep but the HW Monitor app shows the same multiplier (i.e. x8) in Lion as I get in Core Temp in Windows. I don't think the CPU fan could consume so much (it does work a bit harder in Lion compared to W7). In W7 it keeps the lowest rotation speed allowing the CPU to keep 53-54 C while in Lion it starts blowing more air once the temps on all 4 cores get over 50 C.

I am note sure if the Nvidia GT 525M could be the reason - it functions in W7 (and Intel Graphics is probably disabled) however in Lion (again, I am guessing here) it consumes power without delivering anything and the video is provided by Intel Graphics.

I would also appreciate some help on this!!! Thanks in advance!!!
