I haven't seen a fan fix anywhere. :) It probably has something to do with the 4pin fan connecter.. but I don't know... I would love a fan fix for the X1950XTX!

Hello,

is there any Progress in the Fan Speed Problem with a X1950XTX ?

Bye

Dirk

Hello.
Im banging my head against the table now...
I have tried all different solutions ( I think) but still have no QE or QE2D.

Closest I get is with Jccool method injector.
Then the system runs at 1650*1050@60hz on Dual DVI
But no QE och QE2D.

my system:
Mobo: Abit KN8-Ultra (chip:AppleNForceATA Test, Sound: ALC850)
 Processor: AMD X2 3800+
 Video: ATI X1900 GT (id 0x724b)
 Build: iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5
 Core: 9.4.0 StageXNU
 AMD Patch

Is it possible to solve this with 10.5.5, is this the place for answers?
If not please direct me.
Thank you very much for any help.

After attempting to use the x1900xt EFI installer on 10.5.6 I received this error.

Posted Image



The x1950 AIO installer worked perfectly except restart/shutdown stopped working. Screen would turn off, but the computer stayed on. Worked normally until I tried the driver.

My specs:

ASUS P5Q Pro
Leopard Retail Vanilla (MBR install)
ASUS x1900xt PCI-E

Update: Fixed - did a fresh install, my old drivers were conflicting.

I used the X1900XT EFI VGA Installer (7249) located here:

http://www.mediafire.com/?ljnje5fjjbz

It boots and works, but no QE/CI (QE = Not Supported, CI = Software). Is there an updated driver or trick to getting full QE/CI support?

suidar,

If you have a fresh install of 10.5.7, you can do the modifications on the stock drivers yourself:

1. Go to /System/Library/Extensions/
2. Show contents for the ATIRadeon.kext
3. edit the Contents/Info.plist with a text editor:
4. Find the <key>IOPCIMatch</key> and replace the contents of the <string> following it with this:
<string>0x72441002</string>
5. Do the same in the ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/Info.plist
6. Edit ATIRadeonX1000GA.plugin/Contents/Info.plist, replacing the corresponding block with this:
<key>CFPlugInFactories</key>
	<dict>
		<key>10027244-0000-0000-0000-000a27898d3e</key>
		<string>ATIRadeonX1000GAFactory</string>
	</dict>
	<key>CFPlugInTypes</key>
	<dict>
		<key>ACCF0000-0000-0000-0000-000a2789904e</key>
		<array>
			<string>10027244-0000-0000-0000-000a27898d3e</string>
		</array>
	</dict>
7. Fix the permissions with Disk Utility or OSx86Tools.

After reboot you should have hardware accelerated graphics(hinted by a gfx card's fan revving up on boot) with a single display mode available. If you already have Natit.kext installed, you'll see all the modes available for your display.

I've tested this on a fresh install of iAtkos v7. Works like a charm on my Sapphire 1950XT 256Mb.

P.S. I was unable to get the drivers working after upgrading to 10.5.8, has anyone succeeded in that?

Does anyone have the AIO Installer Link or a place for me to download it?... All JCCOOL's links are broken.

I'm running a X1950 XT ATi Graphics card in JaS 10.4.8 Mac OS.

Thank you for the help ;)

If anyone finds the links and/or files let me know. I will host the files for JcCool.

Unfortunately support for this set of cards has ceased. It is not currently possible and probably will never be possible for these cards to run in SL because Apple no longer provides support for them therefore my method will no longer work.

So there is no way to get a x1950xt working under SL? That really sucks... I finally got everything else on my system working (took me forever to get sound), and graphics kinda sorta work. I can't use both monitors, only 1. I have translucent menu bar and such, but still get artifacts, and if I try to play any video (in quicktime/vlc/fcp/etc), as soon as the video plays, the screen goes crazy, and I have to restart to get it back. Any ideas at all?

I'm stuck with a sapphire X1900XTX (Device ID 7249, Producer ID 1002). Has anyone got a hint for me how to get it to support different resolution than 1024x728 and QE enabled under Snow Leopard (10.6.3)?

Tried A LOT but nothing worked so far...

S.M.S. (save my soul...) pls.
