    Senseis wanted - X300 trouble

    Sent you a PM but I'll post here as well: http://installers.dl.am/

    [How To] Solutions for Video Problems

    I'm losing my mind! I have an x300 pci-e (dev: 5B60). Immediately after installation Core Image and Quartz extreme were supported but I had some annoying mouse tearing and the resolution sucked. After using the Natit installation I no longer have mouse tearing and it detects my x300 card - however, Core Image and Quartz Extreme are now disabled - and I can't get resolution above 1280x768. Any advice? Detailed instructions very much appreciated.

    ATI x300 - Garbage on the screen

    Glad to see I'm not alone in my agony - let me know if you discover anything.

    ATi Radeon 9550 problem

    Have you tried installed the Natit driver? - Available here: http://installers.dl.am/ If not, boot into safe mode (-x), download it, and install it - it worked for me when I had similar problems.

    What the heck just happened?!?!?!

    Nevermind - got it fixed - just installed Natit.

    What the heck just happened?!?!?!

    Anyone have any suggestions? I think it has something to do with the resolution when the Mac OS starts up - as it appears similar to the problem I had when I mistakenly installed the Radeon driver during initial installation. The question is - how do I fix the start up resolution?

    What the heck just happened?!?!?!

    Ok - booted up in safe mode without a problem. The odd thing is is that in safe mode I have access to a whole slew of resolutions (not just 1024 x768) and it also knows that I'm using a Dell W1700 monitor. Any clues?

    What the heck just happened?!?!?!

    When and where do I enter "-x" to boot into safe mode without the installation dvd? The OS x86 boot menu comes up, I choose to boot to the Mac partition but have no time/space to enter -x. Yes, I am a noob.
  10. I successfully installed and used Mac OS 10.4.8 for a number of days. However, today when I booted up, immediately following the grey apple screen with spinning logo, there was a brief message on my monitor ("Resizing display.." or something of the like) and then the screen went black and my monitor went to standby. I thought it may have been a fluke so I booted up again and low and behold the same thing happened again. Does anyone know what's going on and how to fix it? In between the last successful boot and the first messed up boot I had made no changes to the system. My system: P4 3.0ghz ATI Radeon PCI-e 300x (didn't install the drivers as the monitor worked fine without it) 3 partitions on my hard drive - (1)Fat32 (2)Windows NTFS (3) AppleOS X

    No Sound - Advice needed

    I recently had to revert to an old sound card as my new one bit the dust. I'm currently using the Aureal Vortex 8830 - however, there's no audio out of my 10.4.8 install. Any suggestions / ideas / advice?
  12. Looks like that was the problem; however, Acronis OS Selector is not detecting the Mac partition. I'm pretty sure that others have had this problem so I should be able to dig it up. Thanks for the advice to reburn the dvd.

  14. The first time I tried to install I selected both SSE3 and SSE2; however, the process still fails when I select just SSE3 (I also tried just SSE2 alone for good measure and didn't work either).
