  1. Hey Mammoth - has anyone here got a DV7 i7 with the ATI mobility 5650? If so has anyone got the internal screen working? If so..... TELL ME HOW!! Seriously - any tips would be welcome. I have it booting to an external with full QE ( VGA and HDMI ) - but no internal. Internal works fine without graphics enabler tho... thanks Jim

    HP DV7T display..

    Hi, greetings to all - I'm wondering if I could ask all you guys for your advice - I have my DV7T i7 720 ATI mobility radeon HD 5650 working - full QE/QI and recognised correctly in system profiler but ONLY on an external vga monitor - LCD panel remains backlit but black. Am I right in thinking this has to be a EDID issue - since the drivers obviously work on the vga is it just that the system doesn't understand the LCD panel? Thanks - and apologies if this isn't the right place to ask. Jim

  4. Hi there, thanks for your time and efforts to sort the EDID issues out - I have a 5650 and I've tried to create the overide exactly as you suggested, but it's not getting picked up. The system recognises my card no problem and if I plug an external vga monitor in it's fine ( using boot flag AtiConfig=Eulemur ) with full QE/CI - but the laptop screen is just black - but with the backlight on. If I check with SwitchresX the Forced Internal EDID isn't loading at all. Not sure where to go from here - any ideas? Thanks Jim HP DV7T Ati Mobility Radeon HD 5650

    ATI 5650 on HP DV7T

    Hi - so near - I have it running osx 10.6.6 fine, and it recognises the card correctly, last hurdle is getting the damn display on the laptop to work. I can VNC in to it and it has full QE working fine - just need to get the LDC panel working.... am trying out various EDID and FB options - no luck yet but I will keep you posted. I need to understand why switchresX gives the hex in pairs but the overide file needs the hex in batches of 8? Anyone know? cheers Jim

    Finally QE/CI on Mobility 5650!

    Hi - could you help me get my 5650 working? I have an HP DV7T with the 720 i7 quad - I have evrything else working and was very close to getting the card working with the method you described here, but always got a black screen - tried every FB listed but nothing. If I VNC into it, no QE either. It did recognise that the 5650 was present in the system profiler but always said 'no display connected'. I then tried installing [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.2 with experimental ATI support - it now hangs on the boot screen - but if I VNC it has loaded the system. No QE and in system profiler it just gives a page of ffffffffs - mem allocation error? Again tried it with Eulemur, Vervet, Hoolock - no change. Where do I go from here? I'm sooo close I can almost smell it :-) Thanks Jim I have the same - but with DV7T... did you find any solution? cheers Jim

    iPortable Snow on HP DV7 i7 ATI

    +++ Update +++ using the cpus=1 flag as well as the ones you suggested got me into the registration and setup which all completed fine ( even the webcam) - but then went as far as a blue/grey screen with a mouse cursor and no further. Tried rebooting and same thing - any ideas? Is it the ATI card? Thanks Jim

    iPortable Snow on HP DV7 i7 ATI

    Thanx superami - will give it a try and post back the results :-)
  13. Hi - I have created a startup USB drive with iPortable Snow - whatever flags I set t won't boot - usually KP - or if it boots further I get 'CPU Halted'. Is this because of the ATI card? Bit new to this... Thanks Jim
