White Screen - SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X HD 4890 2GB

18 February 2013 - 08:19 PM

Hey I have a full working System running OSX 10.7.4 on Gigabyte UD5 MOBO, and an Nvidia GT520 graphic card.. working really perfect since over a year..

No I changed the GT520 to an SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X HD 4890 2GB.. the System is booting up, but hangs on a white screen exactly before the login screen appears..

and the boodloader is flashing something like: Bad display config Block signature for a second or so, before switching to the apple logo with the spinning wheel...

also tried to boot -v -x
last line is:
DSMOS has arrived
//but nothing is coming up

and I also see a line:
NVDAGF100HAL loaded and registered.
//isn't this an Nvidia Driver thing ?

Blackscreen with Nvidia GT520

Hi Guys,

I installed Lion 10.7.3 (Kakewalk methode) on Gigabyte: GA EX58 UD5 with a nvidia quadro FX5800.. installation and everything works fine, System is running perfectly the only problem the quadro fx5800 is not supported just 1024pix so I got a simple Nvidia GT520 but it in the same slot where the FX5800 was insert.. but instate of the boot screen or the boot loader is just a black screen..

Also if I plug in the USB install stick, doesn't show anything just black.. by putting back in the FX5800 everything is working (System and Installation)... It look like that there is already a panic at before the boodloader starts, any ideas ?

Lion Hangs after Startup...

Hi have a GA EX58 UD5 with a Quadro FX5800, Everything works fine at the installation... If I boot now it starts with the apple logo and the progress circle.. till it change the display resolution to about 1920x1080, also the mouse cursor shows up for a second, the progress circle stays and turn, and after a while its getting darker and darker (like you a layering over and over) and the screen is just white.

After a while the monitor go into sleep mode, by pressing any key it wake up, but still shows just the white screen.. seems like a running system but without the UI.. any ideas ?
