In Topic: Nvidia Web Driver updates for El Capitan (UPDATE 06/23/2016)

28 January 2016 - 07:10 PM

I'm experiencing the same problems on a fresh 10.11.3 install running on a Skylake-based system with iMac17,1 as System Definition. Did the same steps as you, copy, overwrite but no avail. I'm using a GTX 970 and connecting my U2515H via Displayport, but shouldn't give an error. It's quite strange that nobody is experiencing problems like these. 


For me it's a gtx960 with also a screen on DP, i7-6700k.

I'll just wait for them to release a driver update or osx 10.11.4 at this point.

Nothing seems to help or solve it.



Sometimes it acts up when doing a copy replace. Copy to desktop the vanila 10.11.3 kext, modify it, delete the original kext from s/l/e, then copy the .kext back with your fave kext utility. I have had times in the past where just overwriting using a kext utility doesn't work.

Unfortunately no...

AppleGraphicsControl.kext Right, is not the one that you change the parameter? 


I did, but that won't work.

What I did for 2 is copy the file to desktop, edit it, overwrite it and repair permissions.

That works.

However replacing the whole kext won't, never did.

After you changed to "none" you must resintall the kext with easykext otherwise changes won't take effect



Which kext do you exactly mean?

Tried that to no avail really.

I've restored to .2 again, after 3 days of intensive trying I couldn't get these drivers to work with the iMac17,1 smbios, changing my smbios to for example 15,1 or MacPro3,1 did work.

So it seems if you're rocking skylake already as I do nvidia + iMac17,1 smbios is a no go for some weird reason.

The symptom is black screen just like before you change 65CE76090165799A from Config2 to none, except this has been changed and I have rebuild the prelinked kernel and caches.


So if you managed nvidia +iMac17,1 smbios I'd hear it gladly and else too... it's just puzzling and to the best of my knowledge this can't be done at this very moment.


In retrospect; .2 works within 5 minutes of installing the webdrivers and have been stable for weeks, .3 just won't work for me whether it's the smbios or this gtx960 I'm not sure (have no other card to try).


Here's all info proving it works with .2 perfectly, it's an Asus Strix 960;

Anyone with the 346.03.05f01 version after upgrading to .3 and not having it load for you? this seems to be the case with smbios iMac17,1 even after changing Config2 tot none... anyone got any idea what's going on?

Simply refuses for me and may have to revert my skylake test build back to .2...
