hi guys   :)

 

@ dave02v
 

 

If you have a question please do your best to use the search feature and search the forum before creating a new topic.

 

there are 2 "versions" of Intel HD 3000 (desktop / laptop) and in most cases it works OOB, at least on recent OS X

 

but sometimes it must be done via DSDT Method or by adding some kexts from a previous release.
 
 
 
good luck  ;)

Hello

If no one answer is because they don't know how to help you.

The guides about your graphic were created, are there. Just read and try to do....

Hello

Many people can have the same graphic, but the mobos are different. So maybe only you got this problem and no one else

Nothing is 100% so the guides are always being updated.

Hello

Look, some mobo isn't so compatible like we think...

Also, have something called Chipset. It cause many proeblems about Graphic and powermanament...

A exemple is my mobo. I had problems with powermanagement, only removing Scope_PR from my DSDT and add flag -xcpm in org.chameleon... i get powermanagement.

Saw? Each mobo have your own problems... Now... you need discover what is your mobo problem.

Hello

Testing... it only way to find problems... my DSDT don't show any problem too, but i only get 2 states instead of 6 states.

Your problems isn't power management is graphic... maybe chipset given this problem to you, maybe not, but you need make tests...
