Dell M1530 Graphics - VGA and HDMI out working - EFI Strings

08 January 2009 - 04:13 AM

How to get VGA and HDMI output working on the Dell M1530 with the 8600m GT graphics card.

This guide is for those of you who are having trouble getting VGA output working with injectors and want to use EFI strings with the Dell M1530 with 8600M GT.

I have attached a hex modified with talismans NVCAP settings.

- Download the attached file and EFIStudio
- Extract the attached file
- Open the extracted file (talismans.hex) with EFIStudio (In EFIStudio - Click File - Open Hex) and then click write to com.apple.boot.plist.
- Once you have written this to com.apple.boot.plist, make sure you do not have any injector in your extensions folder. (NVinject, NVinjectGo, etc)


Hope this saves some ppl from having to go through the trouble I did.

Get EFIStudio at HERE

Kernel Panic after swapping processor

27 December 2008 - 08:21 PM

I just swapped my Intel Core 2 Duo T7800 (65nm) Mobile Processor out for a Core 2 Duo T9300 (45nm).

Now as soon as my desktop screen gets done loading, I get a kernel panic. It works fine in safe mode though.

I figured It was something to do with speedstep, so I removed AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and GenericCPUPowerManagement.kext, but I still get a kernel panic.

I'm Running Leopard 10.5.5.

Under about this mac, it says my processor is unknown now.

Anyone else know what I need to do?

Thanks so much.

Flaviopiu and I got VGA out to work in EXTENDED mode great! (Both Internal and External). BUT, In MIRROR mode our internal laptop LCDs become black and we can only see the mouse pointer, while the external monitor displays properly. If anyone can help fix this problem or have any suggestions, please post. THANKS!

This Guide was made by Flaviopiu. Thanks!
