Hi !

 

I attached two files. The first one is a complete dump with IOReg and the second a screenshot showing details about my graphics card seen by OS X and my external monitor which is actually working.

 

Thanks a lot.

I have seen you are using 10.8.2 official drivers, before trying some other method, first update to 10.8.4 and test with official drivers and if it does´t work try Nvidia Web drivers, this are known to be more detect port friendly. Also fix your Power management issues.

 

Good luck

Hi !

I currently have an Alienware M17X R4 with an nVidia GTX680M. I also have the famous black screen on startup but it seems that OS X is still working in background. When I start with a VGA screen plug in, I can see my desktop with full hardware acceleration. With HDMI it hang on a grey screen. Both are not working if i plug them after startup.

The interresting part was that I get the same comportement with Linux and the nVidia driver (not nouveau) until the release of the 325.15 version. My screen is connected to dfp-4 internaly and wasn't found at all by the nVidia driver but nouveau.

I think your are right. The nvidia in the currently version available on OS X can't get the right infos from the screen.

I will be happy to make some test if you have some time to help other people. For example, do you need Xorg log from my current Linux distro ?

Thanks

 

I have the asus g75vx with the 670mx and whether i use vga or hdmi, external monitors have the same results as the built in monitor. It hangs regardless. Alienware laptops have been able to get it working but lenovo's and asus's haven't

Exactly, I think the Asus and Lenovo VBios are different to Alienware VBios and is not because they are included inside the main board Bios is because some code inside this VBios are for handling the IGPU HD4000, this is the same issue why some people trying to upgrade the GPU had to flash the card to Dell bios to the upgrade card in order to get it work.

The Asus G75VW with GTX670M does´t have this code because is a Fermi Card, if the problem was related to some physical interconnection this card won't work too but it does. The only difference in hardware between this two G75VW is the GPU which is a some custom MXM card. There are some differences for Kepler + HD 4000 combos vs Fermi + HD 4000 Combos.

 

Someone who like to try it out? Maybe injecting this Dell Bios for the Asus G74VW with GTX 660M? We need some VBios Guru to help us. 

 

 

the Problem with this GTX 680M is not the same all others have. He can boot with an external monitor attached and with full acceleration it is just a port detection problem.

Hi !

 

Yes, in my case, I think my 120 Hz screen save me because of the incompatibility with Intel card.

 

I update to 10.8.4 and install nVidia Web driver changing my smbios to MacPro. I can see that kext from web driver are loaded even if display pane doesn't show it.

 

But my internal monitor is still black.

 

Here is a new ioreg export.

 

I hope we will make this work. Thanks for your help.

Ok then this is an EFI string to test, please try it out and report back with the result, also try HDMI maybe it will work.

 

Good Luck

Hi !

 

So I try with this EFI string and my internal screen is still black, the VGA screen turn light grey, and HDMI doesn't have any signal. So not better but it made something.

 

Just in case I'm doing some mistake, I put a screenshot of how I do the injection.

 

Thanks for your help.

Ok, bad news, but we have a lot to test if you don't mind to be a guinea pig, try this to obtain in windows your screen EDID so we can try to injected http://www.insanelym...splay-problems/

 

Also let me see your DSDT or a full ACPI dump so I can try to understand how does your port configs works.

 

Good luck

Ok.

 

So I linked two files. First one is a dump of my DSDT from Windows, the second one is a dump of my EDID in bin and inf file from EDID with raw data. Hope it'll help.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Maybe we will find what is going on and help other users too.

Hi.

I made a lot of test but it hangs with the same results as previous string. I also try the way they talked in the forum you mention but I have the same problem with installer. When I see nVidia driver in the lines of startup, the screen turn black.

So something might be specific with my computer. For information, I use an App Store purshased version of Mountain Lion for both installation (10.8.3).

Maybe we can try to directly made change on dsdt ?

Thanks for your help.

Seems like the driver thinks your screen is not connected at all, What can you tell me about your BIOS settings? can you take some photos? specially the gpu must say PEG not AUTO.

 

Good Luck

Hi.

 

I take some pictures of the pages of my unlocked BIOS. General and video settings in particular. I put it in attachement. Hope it'll help.

 

Thanks.

You got a lot options there, other laptops I had tried doesn't have all this options, ask what configurations does the people inside the forums I posted had, maybe is just that a Bios setting to correct. 

 

Have you tried Mavericks? tif so what happened??

 

Good luck

Hey,

 

Slayer told in a post in this topic, that he knew a working Alienware M17 xR4 with GTX 660m working oob. In this link (sorryin German, I could not find an English one) at the end of the page, you can see why. It must be the 3D variant: http://www.nvidia.de...tx-660m-de.html .

 

Here is an overview (sorry in German too) Kepler Gtx and GT models, 6 series (klick model link, and then page down): http://www.nvidia.de/page/mobile.html

 

Hope, this helps a llittle.

For laptops with optimus HD4000 + Kepler this is correct, if the internal screen is 120Hz then the connection must be to the display port on the motherboard, for avoid the HD4000 because this iGPU can´t support 120Hz, but in laptops without optimus like the G75VW and G75VX the problems is other, my theory is the VBios on the kepler card is created to disable the HD4000 so the Nvidia Drivers on OSX can´t work with this VBios.

 

Only time will tell.

 

Good Luck

Hi.

Some Google research with "unlocked BIOS alienware m17x r4" will make the job. Most of the time, constructor make full BIOS for developping purpose and then lock it with only common option to avoid damage by end user. Some people remove this lock from official BIOS and you have to flash it using dos boot key. But be aware that this kind of BIOS is dangerous if you don't know what you are doing. Moreover, flasing eeprom is always risky as you make brick your computer.

Good luck.

@ boy_iran_64

 

Hello!

 

The Nvidia GT 635m is a Fermi Architecture gfx card and has therefore nothing to do with Kepler Architecture.

 

Have fun.
