what can i use to enable qe/ci on my radeon x1300/x1550 series in snow leopard 10.6.8?

for some reason, it says the following:

ATI Radeon HD 4890:

Chipset Model: ATI Radeon HD 4890
Type: GPU
Bus: PCIe
Slot: Slot-1
PCIe Lane Width: x16
VRAM (Total): 3 MB

Revision ID: 0x0000
ROM Revision: 113-B7710C-176

Display:

but, it was a radeon x1300 pro before. idk, i give up on googling all over the place. what can i do.

IM NOT TRYING TO FIX THE MISTAKE OF CALLING IT A RADEON HD 4890! im trying to find a proper kext for this card so i can enable QE/CI. thats it!

Follow this:

1. Do a clean install

2. Copy the Controler and GPU kexts for your GPU from S/L/E

3. Add your device ID's to the kext and install them and restart

4. Use the framebuffer drop tool found on this fourm (pined in the ATI fourm)

5. Use boot flags to test these one by one. The drop tool breaks it down by which kext it is from.

remove evoenabloer. You need to test each of the framebuffers...

Post a IOreg and your DSDT and I will take a look...
