  1. Dell Inspiron 530

    LatinMcG WOW! The DSDT is great. Fixed the CMOS Checksum error and sleep seems to work. Its great! I deleted all the kexts except FakeSMC.kext and that made my video card very happy. Its fixed. So I am down to the sound. I'm afraid I still need a little help. I have never had much luck with VoodooHDA. I went here and followed this process. http://olarila.com/f...?f=18&t=454 and downloaded VoodooHDA 2.7.3. I deleted the the AppleHDA (S-L-E) and installed the VoodooHDA.kext via the Kext Helper to (S-L-E). Then I installed the VoodooHDA.prefPane (all users) and rebooted. No luck. How can I open the VoodooHDA.prefPane? I dropped VoodooHDA.prefPane into the Utilities folder and everytime I attempt to open it the System Preferences opens and I get the message "An older version of the prefPane is already installed. Do you want to replace it with a newer version?" I tried both the "cancel" option and the "replace" option. Never installed anything Voodoo prior to this attempt... Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

    Has anyone tried this new SleepEnabler.kext on their 530? http://osx86.sojugarden.com/files/Extensio...nabler.kext.zip "Will enable sleep functionality while AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement is disabled on many systems. NOTE: This is an updated version which was released in June of 2010. It has been tested under OS X 10.6.0-10.6.4 and causes no kernel panics in any of these versions of OS X."
