Hi

My Hackintosh has been working great for 2 years. Not anymore..

What did i change?

- Physically moved the computer.
- Changed my screen for an older type.


If I try to boot normally, I get as far as the Mac-logo spinning and after that - BLACK SCREEN. I have an external soundcard which seems to light up though.

I can boot in safe-mode using -x.

I used to use a Full HD LCD screen. The new(old) screen is Dell, and it is a lower res screen.

Can this be the problem?

I have tried to change screen resolution in safe-mode, but without luck. It is stuck at 1024/768, and that is also the only option i can choose.

I am using a GTX275 with a DVI to VGA converter. Running Hazard 10.6.6.

I hope you can help me.

Regards

I have tried with another (also older) screen, same story.

Can it be because the resolutionsetting is at 1920/1080 (the old setting for my screen) and that the other screens can't handle that and there for goes black?
