  1. Dual Video Card Problem

    Wow. I am certainly going to have to try that tonight or tomorrow. As soon as I finish my work for the job that actually pays. It's so hard to find guides that actually tell you how to do things with your DSDT other than, "Patch your DSDT. It fixed my problems." >.< I seem to recall coming across a thread where somebody had three 6000 or 7000 series cards working together, but I think it might have been leo. I'll see if I can't rediscover it. I'm assuming you've tried gfx strings as well as the link you posted?
  2. Any word on whether this could happen or not? It would be exceedingly nice.
  3. Hey guys. I'm having a problem and I feel like I Googled my fingers off without any luck, but if somebody happens to be able to point me in the right direction, I'll gladly fetch. If not, hopefully someone with more grey matter than me has a suggestion or two. I'm building a new rig, specs are as follows: ASUS Rampage III Extreme Intel i7 960: minimal OC @ 4.3GHz 24 GB DDR3 1600 G.Skill RAM Two Corsair Sata3 SSD's: Raid0 Three XFX GTS 250's Surprisingly most everything worked out of the box. I'm currently only using a 6GB kit of ram and a standard Sata2 hard drive because I was eliminating the possibility of problems with too much ram or the raid and I haven't put them back in yet. And I'm only aiming at getting two of the video cards to work right now. Currently I have these kext's in my Extra folder: AppleIntelPIIXATA ElliotForceLegacyRTC EvOreboot FakeSMC HdaEnabler IntelE1000e IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector IONetworkingFamily LegacyJMB36xSATA NullCPUPowerManagement VoodooHDA With a GraphicsEnabler = Y option, I can get one video card, regardless of the slot its in to work upon booting. All the specs are fully recognized with the exception of the model of the card. Using a gfx string for both cards, I get both fully working with the specs I entered displayed. Here's where it gets harry; With both cards turned on I get a KP: sometimes before fully booting, sometimes after boot it would just come up with a grey screen, sometimes a black screen with the KP overlay. After reading around a bit, I saw that a few people were saying that they were able to get two cards working by putting the first one in the second slot and setting the video in BIOS to PEG2. At the time I foolishly thought "well I don't have a video option in the BIOS so that shouldn't affect me." Obviously it more recently occurred to me to just go ahead and stick it in the second slot to see what happened. Which is where we come to my current problem: with both cards turned on, one in slot 2, the other in slot 3, the system fully boots, but when the monitor temporarily looses the connection like it normally does right before I get a blue screen and then everything else kicks it, it just stays black and the system appears to freeze. The system and HDD leds are inactive and the lock keys on the keyboard obtain no led response. Sooooo suggestions? Comments, questions, answers, trash talk? I'll take whatever you got.
  4. released Update to 10.6.4

    I updated and when I rebooted I got panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff80002cfad3): "Version mis-match between Kernel and CPU PM"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1504.7.4/osfmk/i386/pmCPU.c:706 Anyone seen that?
