hello everybody.
my problem is this:

i have a nvidia 8500gt with 256 ram Low-profile manufactured by MSI. (DVI+HDMI)
i installed Mountain Lion and my graphic card is working (GraphicEnabler=Yes) only on DVI port (recognized as GeForce 8500GT 256VRam) (i use dvi-hdmi converter) and black screen on HDMI port.
i have a custom dsdt but no gfx injection and i use dsdt for hdaudio and other fixes.
i tried to edit plist in nvda kexsts and nvenabler64 (not used since now) to add my devid (0x042110de) but no luck...
any help will be apreciated.
thanks

Post your DSDT and IOreg(From IOreg app) and I will inject your GPU into your DSDT.

Cleaned it up a bit not completely. Injected your GPU into your DSDT. Remove

GraphicsEnabler=Yes



If you can not boot with this DSDT boot with:


DSDT=No


Note this is case sensitive.


Also if you get a black screen that means that I have to apply another edit.

In a few minutes...

I observed that when i plug hdmi cable in a second Monitor (using HDMI port), first Monitor turned blue (DVI port) and second Black (No signal).

Post a new IOreg. Thanks.

maybe this will help:

using enoch boot loader (using graphicenabler=yes) i got this:

Using PCI-Root-UID value: 0


GeForce 8500 GT 256MB NV86 [10de:0421]-[1462:0921] :: PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) device number: 1

No, you just need to change the name of the GPU in the DSDT thats it...
