Running titan. Loads up on a monitor attached externally from my laptop (black screen on my laptop) but what worries me is that I have no QE/CI. This is very disappointing. Anyone might know why? Could it be wrong FBOFFSET or does that have nothing to do with it? It detects my card correctly - nVidia GeForce Go 7300.

EDIT: I'm running a 8.1 kernel. Prolly newer than alot of peoples :)

Is your card name listed in System Profiler? If so, then the kexts aren't loaded properly. Titan.kext identifies your card properly but once the actual drivers load it should change the card name to "display, b" or something liek that.

For those of you that LoginWindow doesn't load, try adding the card's ID to NVDANV40Hal.kext (or the one your card uses) and NVDAResman.kext. Maybe doing it to the NVDAResman.kext is enough but I didn't try that independently.

Intel P4 3.0 HT
1 GB Ram
ASUS nVidia GeForce 6800 (V9999) 0x0041

I tried that added 0x004110de&amp;0xffffffff to the list on both kext and did chmod/own and it still freezes when loading. Did I add it wrong or is it just not going to work? Anyone else get the asus v9999 working?

Great Work Andazp!

I have the exact same card as you. Dell 6800 0x00c1 0x00a2. I added the ID's to both NVDANV40Hal.kext and to NVDAResman.kext but for some reason I get the kernel panic screen. Any help would be much appreciated!

Digital Dark Age, I hope this clears how to add the ID:

remember to fix ownership and permissions if you edited it outside terminal, but it wouldn't hurt doing it anyway.


From NVDAResman.kext:
<key>IOPCIMatch</key>
<string>0x011010de&amp;0xfff8ffff 0x017010de&amp;0xfff8ffff 0x00c110de&amp;0xfff8ffff 0x017910de 0x018010de&amp (...) </string>

On NVDANV40Hal.kex it should be nstead:
0x00c110de&amp;0xfff0ffff

6600GT on a P4P800, when the loginwindow.app starts the screen refresh changes and the monitor gets a signal, but the screen just says blank.

From what I can tell the system is actually running, just not displaying anything... :poster_oops:

This is on the very latest JaS 10.4.8 with the 10.4.4 Loginwindow due to crashing About This Mac... may try the 10.4.8 loginwindow if that would make a difference.


Same thing here on AMD with geforce 6600GT. the VGA output works, the DVI stays black. also inserted my
displays EDID and all device IDs fine... no matter if I take the old or the new loginwindow btw.

Strange... maybe it is because it's PCI-E?

Incorrect. The new Titan shows your card name properly.

I talked to np_ and others...I've done just about everything I could - the evga GeForce 7950GT KO WILL NOT WORK with Titan. Apparently Apple's drivers don't like the card. So, I'll probably return it and downgrade. :thumbsdown_anim:

Did you try the new Natit release? Give that a try before returning the card. If you do decide on a downgrade, I'd aim for a 7900 GS, or a 7800 of some sort, since you seem to be looking for medium-high to high end cards.

Yes, I tried Natit. No go there either. I'll likely end up with a 7900GS. No one's conclusively stated whether 512MB cards have worked or not.

I picked up a PNY 7900GS/256MB - Works like a charm with Natit. I guess the eVGA 7950GT KO just doesn't like Titan/Natit.

I have a 7600GS 512mb, it boots to the grey screen with the spinning circle then goes to a black screen, only way i can get back into osx is to uninstall natit.

When you guys say loginwindow hangs, do you get NVDA::start(display) then a "NVDA::start(display)<1> failed"?
