Have been trying to get QE/CI acceleration working on this card off/on for a year and can't get it right... Asking for help.

I am now running Lion 10.7.5, I can get full resolution (1920x1080) and display is reported correctly. I'm using the DVI port, the card also has a VGA and S-Video port. The card is reported as:

575]Chipset Model: GeForce 8400 GS

575] Type: GPU

575] Bus: PCIe

575] Slot: Slot-1

575] PCIe Lane Width: x16

575] VRAM (Total): 256 MB

575] Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)

575] Device ID: 0x0404

575] Revision ID: 0x00a1

575] ROM Revision: 60.84.68.00.19


The device ID is the same reported by System Info.app, but only reporting half of the RAM supposedly on the card. Originally installed via ######/###### with the DSDT for my BIOS of my H61M-DS2 motherboard.
Here is my org.chameleon.boot.plist:


<dict>
<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GenerateCStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GeneratePStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>npci=0x3000 darkwake=0</string>
<key>Legacy Logo</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>2</string>
<key>UseKernelCache</key>
<string>Yes</string>
</dict>


Anything else I can provide to assist, just ask. Thanks in advance!
Jeff

Turns out I was running Dashboard as a space in normal mode. Unchecked Dashboard in Mission Control preferences and I now see the ripples when I add a widget.

Never mind... :wallbash:
