  1. Full Install Guide GA P35-DS3P

    Bender, About 3 months ago I wiped the hard drive and installed Ubuntu. I wanted to use OpenCL for research, which turned out very well. Before that, I believe I never upgraded past Lion, though I imagine you can get Lion running on it. Alas, I have a Macbook Pro (which I love) so I dont have a need to do hackintosh anymore. Good luck! Lewis
  2. i have the same issue. Sapphire radeon hd 4870 1gb, dual dvi. Its quite sad, i dont know how to fix it. It was suggested to me by someone who seemed to have a similar problem on his dual nvidia 8600 cards that something is trying to access the gpu sensors, something like AppleLPC, SMBus, I2C, etc. I tried disabling AppleLPC but no luck. I hope this is some help, and at the very least, you know there are others with this same problem. motherboard: GA P35-DS3P
  3. 48x0 latest status

    I have the same problem on my HIS 4870 1gb. I dont know what the problem is, nor how to solve it, so i think i will get an XFX, powercolor, or sapphire brand card. because all of those are confirmed working. If you or anyone else has any ideas, i would love to hear them. I did get 2 DVI displays working with QE/CI/res change.
  4. Sapphire HD 4870 - Help with Dual monitors

    have you tried the natit posted on april 2nd by netkas in the "simple guide ..." thread? It should enable dual monitors, and make the adapter unnecessary.
  5. A Simple Guide to the 4830/4850/4870/4870x2/4890

    for no adapter and/or dual monitors, you want the new Natit.kext posted in this thread on april 2nd by netkas. yes, i have two DVI monitors (both Acer, 20" and 22") working on my HIS 4870 1gb with two dvi ports. .... after reading your post a second time, i realized this doesnt help. im sorry. However, i am having the same mouse lag/freeze/(jumpy/bouncy screen?) that philuxe seems to have. :\ I think I shall wait until 10.5.7 is available before trying to debug it again, though i would greatly appreciate fixes if anyone has them.
  6. A Simple Guide to the 4830/4850/4870/4870x2/4890

    Hi I am running a HIS 4870 1GB with Dual DVI monitors. I have QE/CI/res change using the .pkg and motmot and opengl from the original post, as well as the April 2nd Natit posted by netkas. I am getting a jumpy mouse, where if i am moving the mouse it will randomly jump across the screen every few seconds. I am thinking that this is the same problem that the original post calls a "jumpy/bouncy screen". Unfortunately, that fix is for the 4850 and not the 4870. I tried it out but it is based on the old natit, which means that it lacks full support for dual dvi monitors (they work but the color calibration is off), and i think the fix may be specific only to the 4850 because it did not fix the jumping mouse. However, I am not totally sure that these are the same problems. one thing i can try to do in a little while is to add <key>@0,PP_DisablePPLib</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>@1,PP_DisablePPLib</key> <integer>1</integer> to info.plist under either the 4800 section or the 4870 section of the new natit, and maybe this will disable powerplay and fix my problem. My other option is to sell this card and buy a sapphire or asus dk edition 4870, as people in this thread have posted that both of those work perfectly.
  7. A Message to Ed and the rest of the staff

    im guessing they do get "a little positive response", in the form of a lot of money in advertising.
  8. what are you talking about? you are just a fanboy that doesn't know anything. Apple is obviously using its communist ties to google to censor our right to freedom of information. agreed, {censored} them.

    what did GW pee and poop just minutes before the first aircraft hit the towers? QED.
  12. All signs point to no PPC in 10.6

    lets see.... they cant reduce the size of the os on ppc why? and they cant take advantage of the dual and quad core G5s why? and they can't take advantage of the powermac video cards why? so which intel-only REFINEMENTS, exactly, are you referring to?
  13. WTC 7 "collapse" (MSNBC live)

    on a scale of 1 to it went over my head? I'd rate it a it went over my head. @ MGJulius: haha yes i thought it added to my point.
