Hi I would like to confirm that the switchresx mod works on my Dell 5110 i5 HD 3000 512Mb Vram, No Nvidia, 15'' Laptop, I already had a display override in place but after removing it and installing switchresx, i restarted, upon login had a blue screen for about 4 seconds then it loaded up. Its been almost 30minutes and no "main ring stall" showing in system console. My dock is now moved from the left hand side to the bottom, I have magnification disabled though. I have installed fancontrol with a fanspeed of 3300 rpm which I got from using aid64 in windows to extract all my system details. I using the HWmonitor applictaion found in the FakeSMC package.
I can now open Final Cut Pro & Motion with no hangs and no artificats being displayed on my LVDS screen, upon open always freezed up and had to use an external display through HDMI.
My monitor settings are a bit different from Nanotech you can see in the screenshot below:
My front porch and back porch vertical are different from Nanotech
Updated** 2hours counting and no real freezing or artificats appearing. However if i open any video in Quicktime I get discolouration on the screen which seems to be spreading and forces me to restart. So i'm using VLC and don't have any issues.
I've been looking for a way for a long time to mod my laptop display to a standard monitor display settings and this seems to be the working.
for your feedback and hope we can help you ?
First adjust your settings exactly like mine its of great important !!!
then completely remove the damn app (Hwmonitor) it sucks !! uninstall its menu bar then remove it to trash !!
restart your mac trust me , before installing switchresx ,removing HWmonitor dramatically decreased artifacts & freezing when i reinstalled
it again more and more artifacts came back !? i repeated that (( installing and uninstalling HWmonitor app )) 10th of times the results was
the results were the same .Its really sucks !? i do not know exactly why ? but that app interrupts our IGPU and CPU sensors so that it may has a slowdown
effects or even conflicts at that point switchresx was not installed on my system and my IGPU was suffering from slowdown due to improper
communications with my LCD but upon removing HWmonitor , installing switchresx and increasing pixel clock speed inside our IGPU
everything got amazing great ! i can run vlc with quicktime with safari youtube simultaneausly at the time playing hd vedio sunset photo
effect on photo booth app at the same of maximizing and minimizing photo booth without any artifacts nor freezing
also at the same time all apps in my dock are loaded up and running !!!
try that and see and see if it works ?
