HI

As I understand well, the card in some SONY laptops with ID 0x71871002 works and allows resolution changed to 1280x800.
In my HP6910p I have a card with ID 0x71881002 and I cannot change resolution. What is the main difference between the cards? Is there any way to make OSX to believe that the card 0x7188 is actually a 0x7187 card?

Sorry, i was wrong, the correct ID is 0x718a. So I would like to find a way to make OSX to believe that my 0x7188 is a 0x718a card...

I've tried Switchresx and it doesn't work for me because it doesn't recognize the monitor.
I've qe/ci supported but i can't change resolution to 1280x800, even if at the boot i write -x"GraphicsMode"="1280x800"platform=x86PC(or with x32, or with @60)
I can't belive that nobody is able to get an higher resolution than 1024x768.

Please somebody help us

Thanks in advance

I also have an HP 6910p with the 7188 X2300 Mobility. I have also been totally unsuccessful getting anything out of this card. I tried every thing in this thread (from top to bottom) to no avail. I can't get QE/CI and I can't get resolution changes. If anyone can assist me it would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to drop me a line or add me on msn hoeser_eh@hotmail.com

I'm willing to test anything.

Not quite sure what you're doing there, but you're meant to put GraphicsMode"="1280x800x32" into com.apple.Boot.plist and boot it normally? It worked for me.

Try changing the distro, I couldn't get kalyway to work with this card, i got iATKOS and iDeneb to work with it though. And just get the kext of 10.5.5 and 10.5.6 respectively

Break? Here is working nicely, how it breaks? (and its not my driver, is the Apple ones modded for our card, just that.)

my device id 7210. can't get 1280x800 :D


HI,

I am using HP 6910p and using above kext I get 1152x864 resolution. Not that it is very good but better than 1024x768. QE/CI works.
I wondering if anyone managed to get 1280x800 on HP. Pls let me know how to get that resolution.

/Sekhar.

EDIT: I am sorry it is not QE/CI but QE GL (i m not sure what the difference is).

Why can't I ever get 1280x800 on the A8Jr? I'm running iPC 10.5.6. Will we ever get the X2300 to work perfectly on Mac OS X?

Hi Sekhar,

I too have an HP 6910p with ATI X2300 graphics card, but have been unable to get QE or CI hardware supported. So I`m quite surprised that you have gotten this far with your graphics card. Could you post any relevant kexts you used to accomplish this. I`d greatly appreciate your help.

I am sorry dude. It is not QE/CI but it is QE GL. I used OSX86 tools that comes with iPC 10.5.6. There you have an option to enable QE GL. It doesnt look that good anyway with 1152x864 resolution. so ended up removing mac completely.

So far as I know,there's still no answer,

maybe the only right thing we should do is to stop try again.

I've installed iDeneb 1.4 on ASUS F3Jr (0x718a) and kext for x1000 series. It seems that hardware acceleration is enabled, but many artifacts and graphics dropouts occur. And of cource no native resolution choise apeeared in monitor preferences.

So i have 2 questions:

1. Where should I look to find out whether QE/CI are enabled?

2. Where does the config file located, to change resolution manually (add string "Graphics Mode"="1280x800" right?)
