  1. kmikaze : According to http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303086 "Connecting an external display is designed to be "plug and play". " According to other OSX Apple (not hackintosh) forums this is quite not possible and it present a problem for other users also : see - http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?t...31&tstart=0 and - http://macosx.com/forums/hardware-peripher...t-plug-dvi.html Hot pluging is to me a thing to absolutely avoid. According to : http://store.apple.com/Catalog/US/Images/c...ison_chart.html and to the MacBook Manual : http://comp.ieu.edu.tr/bimeko/web/MacBook.pdf There is no possible way other than shutting the notebook screen by closing the lid down if you want to work only with one display. Seems to be not possible but I'm sure there's something to do if you know wich process/daemon is monitoring this DVI thingy. Or maybe even disabling the DVI and enabling when in the need of it.
  2. Nvidia 9500m gs partial work

    SOLVED : 9500M GS 1440x900 ON ASUS M50SV and M51SN : Have a look here : http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...111335&st=0 and here : http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=118625
  3. Rob3r7o : thanks alot It's now working 100% native resolution : thanks to Kmikase file kmikase : Thanks a lot ! It's working now !! I'm impressed cos I did generate my gfx string many time with gfx util and i don't see where i did wrong. Anyway it's working now 100% QE, CI & full resolution ! By the way i do not like not understanding everything so i will generate my own com.apple.boot and report here if i succeed why and how. arak78 : this is your chance to grab this file. Great thanks to both of you !
  4. Okay CI & QE ar WORKING !!! Very simple in fact : Kalyway 10.5.3 Vanilla Kernel - NV41 installed (512) then NVinstaller_v.52 installed (512Mb selected) The only thing is to reboot then set up your resolution to 1280x800 pixel millions of color (via system preferences - then display) then reboot again. It's not the native resolution of the screen of the ASUS M51SN (1440x900) but it works and it's speed ! I Think it's just Apple who do not recognize this strange resolution maybe. So it's a PARTIAL Solution but very satisfying one ! Thanks a lot robe3to for your kind help. (By the way your files didn't work with me ;-)
  5. It really is annoying the only thing is to test it with Kalyway updated to 10.5.4 and to test it with other packages (Leo4all) Unfortunately I could only try this in a week or so... rob3r7o : wich OSX86 are you using (Kalyway, Leo4All, etc...) ?
  6. arak78: Is your Core Image software or Hardware ? Also do you have Quartz Extreme supported ? You can check that in the : apple menu - About this Mac - More Info... - Graphic/Display i have installed first NV.41 rebooted and installed PCwiz9800gtx then reboot i am running 1400*900 resolution but no Core Image and no Quartz Extreme I can't manage to get it working (Kalyway combo updated to 10.5.3, Vanilla Kernel, Kabyl Modified Bios) Will try under 10.5.4 arak78 with no CI and no QE you will not be able to use your graphic display to the best... for example try to put a picture in full screen mode under iphoto (you'll have a black screen) it will be the same under other graphic apps.
  7. rob3r7o thanks a lot for you PM and your answers !! I'll try PCwiz9800GTX ( http://www.filefactory.com/file/b9a068/n/PCWiz9800GTX_zip ) and report ASAP. My webcam never did work at all but I'm using Kabyl modified BIOS since the very beginning so... By the way rob3r7o are you using Kalyway or another "package" ? Do you also remember wich kernel you are using ? Are you running a 1440x900 resolution (native from ASUS M51sn) ?
  8. arak78 I've tried everything under Kalyway 10.5.1 - 10.5.2 - 10.5.3 and I failed making the graphic card work properly (aqua mac files also...and everytime a fresh install) Ihave try evrything twice on a fresh install and it's not working !!! MAD !! Maybe the solution reside in using Leo 4 all V3. I'll try to and post soon. dave q any help would be greatly appreciated.
  9. 9800 GTX working in OSX86

    Yes I know that certainly, I guess I'm a little off topic then. But refering to posts #42 and #43 (page 3) there was a debate upon the fact that it should work with 9500M also (same GPU ?) So now I think i can say it really doesn't work at all. It said and done. Guess I have to wait a major update. Thanks everybody very useful ressources there.
  10. Asus M51sn

    By the way did you managed to making work your graphic card Full res with CI Hardware and QE enabled ? If yes please describe how to succeed I'm close of being mad trying hundreds of methods... Not to be off-topic it should be nice if you start a tutorial in the graphic part of the forum or just PM me the solution I'll make the topic then - credits will go to you :-)

  12. 9800 GTX working in OSX86

    Hello eveybody, I have an ASUS M51SN and I have very hard time trying to make it graphic card working (GeForce 9500M GS 512int + 512ext). I tryied everything I read in here so I guess I'm unlucky... Using a "Kalyway 10.5.2 sse2/sse3 amd/intel efiv8" distribution installed with Vanilla Kernel and Bios flashed with Kabyl modded bios, I tried the GFX string stuff wich gives me no CI an QE on 10.5.2 with graphic update/without graphic update, i tried aquamac's files on 10.5.2, GFX string on 10.5.3 with 10.5.4 kexts, etc... everytime fresh install everytime running the repairing rights script !! I began to loose hope of getting it to work i had everything from working QE CI with white menus, Full res with no QE CI, and never the whole thing, I also even try to reinstall EFI v8 (from another volume via startupfiletool to my actual 10.5.2 volume that was unmounted) I feel like I tried everything and nothing work. From that point i could say that it's not possible for the moment but I read in other posts that three other people succeed with the very same configuration WTF ! Is it me doing wrong or are they pushing it ? I'm asking help to every people who succeed running full graphics on ASUS M51SN GeForce 9500M Gs to take a look over my case and lend me some help. I'll try to find a way to suceed until then.
