I have a Latitude D800 with 1.7 GHz Pentium M, 1 GB Ram, an Nvidia Geforce4 4200 GO which does not work. The sound, network, and wireless all work. My main concern is the graphics card, if anyone had instructions on how to enable resolution selection and QE on the Geforce4 4200 GO it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all

I'm trying to install iPC 10.5.6 on the exact same hardware but I'm having no end of difficulties withe getting the graphics to work do I need an external monitor to get the login going or do install NVInject and the GeForce legacy drivers at the same time.

Please help.

Hello Together,

i have found a Solution that works for my Dell D800 Broadcom Card (Model 570x, Gigabit Integrated Controller, Vendor 14E4,Device 165D)
My System is an patched MacOS 10.4.5.

What have I done:

1. I Found a patched Driver somewhere here in the Board (Sorry, I have read so many threads, that I have forgotten the Name of the real publisher)
2. This Driver ist attended to this Post. I hope the patcher will allow this
3. Copy this Driver File to the Mac Desktop
4. Open Finder and navigate to System/Library/Extensions
5. Find the IONetworkingFamily.kext and copy it also to your Desktop
6. Mark it with the right Mousebutton and select "Show Package Content" or so.
-- Sorry I'm using a German Language OSX and so i don't know the real English Button Names. I think you will be able to find the correct ones ;-) --
7. Move in the opend KEXT to Contents and then to PlugIns
8. Find AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext and copy it to Desktop
-- The Copy to Desktop Actions are neccesary, otherwhile you could not edit the KEXT Files --
9. Mark the AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext with right Mouseclick and choose "Show Package Content" or so, like above
10. Navigate to Contents - MacOS
11. There You will find a File called AppleBCM5701Ethernet
12. Overwrite/ Replace this File with the patched one from your Desktop
13. During all these Steps it is possible that you have to Identify with your Root Passwort. Do so and you are able to replace the Files
14. At this time you have placed the modified Driver in the AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext ON YOUR DESKTOP
15. Now its time to complete the IONetworkingFamily.kext on YOUR DESKTOP
16. Therefore mark the in Step 5 copied File on Desktop with right MB and select "Show Package Content" or so
17. In the opend Package navigate to Contents-PlugIns
18. Copy your modified AppleBCM5701Ethernet (Step 14) from Desktop to this package. Replace the old One
19. After closing you got a modified IONetworkingFamily.kext on the Desktop
20. Now you have to copy this File to your System/Library/Extension Folder.
21. Navigate there with Finder and replace the existing one with the modified one from Desktop
22. The KEXT is now replaced an you have to do some jobs in the Terminal
23. Open Terminal and execute the following Commands:
sudo -s
cd /
cd /System/Library/Extensions/
ln -s IONetworkingFamily.kext com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily.kext
rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache
rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions
kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions
24. Now you have to do a Reboot.
25. The Network should now work
26. At my System an other Error occured.After the second Reboot OSX showed that the patched File was not correct loaded. The Network was again greyed out :-(((
27. To handle this problem, open the DiskManagement Tool form MAC OSX.
38. Choosee your Systempartition and select the Opinion to repair the Acces Rights on this Volume.
39. After the next reboot the System worked fine and the Network Card was working

I hope this Workarround works also for your System. My special thanks goes to the real Patcher of the Driver. Sorry that I have forgotten his Name. Without his patching my Network would never come to live....

Hello!

I've tried this on my Snow Leopard 10.6.2 made by Hazard.
But i dont get it to work...
Should this work in this version?

Anyways, it pops up a window after like 30 seconds that says that "System extension cannot be used". It says that it has not been installed correctly, but i have tried so many times now, and I still get this error or what you should call it. :/

Please help! :P
