I am having a weird problem with my Dell GX620. I am running iATKOS 10.6.3. All the video drivers for the GMS950 are stock ( But a modified AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext to get the screen resoution working)

I have graphics fullly working on my 1080p monitor. That's not the problem. At school, sometimes I VNC into my mac to browse the internet and do web design work. The problem I encounter is when I reboot the mac when its not connected to a monitor (kind of like a headless system). The system comes back and I can access it over VNC, but the resolution options are gone (so 1024x768). But the big issue is that I can not take screenshots (they are just white when taken with Grab). This did not happen on 10.5.5, so I am assuming that it has to do with the driver. I am also assuming it has something to do with QE/CL not being enabled when there is no monitor detected at boot.

Is there any way to prevent this from happening?

Thanks

Your video will work much better if you use DSDT Editor to make a DSDT.aml file. You won't have to use a kext or modified frame buffer. I have a GX620 and I don't have any strange artifacts with the video. There is more on this tutoraial.

I've followed that guide, but when I reboot with the patched DSDT.am file, I get a grey screen. There is no error under verbrose. Any ideas?
