  1. NVCAP for 7600 go 256 Hp dv9000. WORKS DUAL SCREEN

    Hi This is great news! I'm a newbie and have the same laptop with the same graphics card. I have the Kalyway disctirubition installed and have also installed the KalywayIntelCombo10.5.2 but my graphics card is shown as unknown nvidia. I understand I need to install the NvInjectGo? and then do the fixes you suggest somehow? Could you be kind enough to describe the steps needed to get to your setup in a simple way? kindest regards, --tzurs
  2. Hi Guys, I've successfully installed leopard on my laptop (hp dv9000 intel based, the exact model is dv9260 I think), I'll spare you the steps I've gone through but in general I'm amazed It actually works, almost perfectly. I've also installed the KalywayIntelCombo10.5.2 because I wanted to run Xcode for iphone. Anyhow, I'm very happy with the setup, the whole system is on an external usb drive which I can plug and boot as I wish. My problem is that my laptop is also connected to an external display, and it is not detected at all. The funny thing is that before the mac loads, I see the apple logo on both the laptop lcd and the external display. Now, I've tried to read though the searches about this issue with graphics cards, as far as I know my laptop has a nice NVidia GeForce 7600. When I look at the system info, It says: Chipset Model: Unknown nVidia Type: Display Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 256 MB Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de) Device ID: 0x0398 Revision ID: 0x00a1 Displays: Display: Resolution: 1440 x 900 Depth: 32-bit Color Core Image: Hardware Accelerated Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Supported Rotation: Supported Display Connector: Status: No display connected My question. Can someone explain is simple words (I've ran into many terms like NvInject and kext and all sort of things I'm not sure I fully understand) what I can try to make it recognize the external display? There is a graphics update waiting in the system updates but I have not selected it because I've read around my searches it may fail the system. I know its annoying for the pro's here to answer us "thick" heads but if you do, please try to explain in simple words, because its so frustrating to read an answer and not at all understand it... :-) thanx in advance, --tzurs
  3. Sorry to clutter, can anyone explain in zuza's method, what type of partition to create on the unallocated space following the 15GB partition (shown as Layout: Partition Type:Basic FileSystem: [empty] in the windows XP Disk Management console), The options when right clicking the unallocated space is to create a "primary" or "extended" partition, which one should I select? thanx a million, --tzurs
