Hi all,

 

I have successfully installed 10.8.2 on my 8540w.

 

Video card is recognized as Quadro FX 880M in system report.

 

When I connect an external monitor to VGA port, then go to Displays and use Detect Displays, nothing happens, and no image on the external monitor.

 

Attaching a screenshot from system report PCI cards.

 

If you have any suggestions on what I could try, please help.

 

I don't shy away at the technical stuff being a developer myself (Java), but I'm new to the OSx86 stage.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

Alex.

 

Forgot to add:

 

HW Acceleration seems to work just fine. (i can see a difference between safe boot (launchpad is horrible), and normal boot - launchpad is smooth as butter).

Analog VGA doesn't work on ML right out of the box. Although I've seen people get it working with kext tricks or hdmi-vga or dvi-vga adapters.

Do you have any details on what kext tricks mean?
I know how to install / remove kexts, but that's it :-)

Or I'm even willing to use a DVI-to-VGA adapter if I could get it to work.

Regards,
Alex
