Greetings all. I've been working on this for about a week now. Mostly trying to get everything how I want it. I used MyHack to install OSX 10.8and upgraded to 10.8.4. All throughout this time, the only resolution I can use, that looks good is 1360x768. If I put it on anything else, I can't see the top bar with the apple, file, edit, etc. and the doc is off the screen.

I found that if I untick the overscan button, I am able to run higher 1920x1080, but I get the black bars around the edge of the screen, its also too sharp and uncomfortable for my eyes.

I suspect that the video card isn't being utilized, even though the the system information says otherwise.

My build is:

  • Motherboard GA-Z77-DS3H
  • RAM 8GB 1600Mhz DDR3
  • CPU Intel Core i3-3225
  • Video PNY GeForce GT 640

Any help, greatly appreciated.

I'll see if I disabled that in BIOS. 
I do boot with GraphicsEnabled=No. Any other ideas?
