  1. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    Hello Elmindo, Above isn't working alright. I did the following and this is working: How to install XFX GeForce 9500 GT 1024MB (Device ID: 0x0640): First you have to do: - First install Combo Update 10.5.8 - Remove from /System/Library/Extension every nvidia injector you could have installed, if you've never installed one you're clean and ready to go. - Put OSX86Tools to your desktop. How to get QE/CI enabled on XFX GeForce 9500 GT, let's start: - Clean everything with OSX86Tools check all the options on main panel and run permission repair and clear extension kext
 - Again on OSX86Tools 
 - Click on the button add efi string
 - Click on gfx strings
 - Choose custom geforce (you need to scroll the list is the last one)
 - Enter your video card name "nVidia GeForce 9500 GT" - Enter your video card memory size "1024MB (1GB)" - NOW choosing your display configuration, choose custom - Enter NVCAP: "0400000000000100060000000000000700000000" - Import String to Boot Editor - Write com.apple.Boot.plist - Reboot with -x -v -f - Shutdown and boot - You can enable even Quartz GL from the main panel of OSX86Tools “Enable/Disable Quartz GL” Some extra infomation: With above you only have VGA, I use a Samsung SyncMaster 2032MW and I have no DVI, but you can do everything without problems with VGA. Maybe a EDID solution for the Samsung SyncMaster 2032 MW will solve it. I hope you have DVI.

    How to mod your NVIDIA Graphics Card model name: (for NVinstaller users) 1. On your boot drive, navigate to System>Library>Extensions 2. Copy NVinject.kext to your desktop (you may want to make an additional copy in another folder for backup) 3. Right-click on NVinject.kext to Show Package Contents, then click on the Contents folder and open Info.plist with TextEdit 4. Scroll down until you find the line "<string>Graphics by NVIDIA</string>" and change to your make and model (for example <string>NVIDIA nVidia GeForce 9500 GT</string>) and then save the file 5. Use http://www.cheetha.net/Kext_Helper/Software.html to install the modified NVinject.kext (do NOT drag and drop the NVinject.kext file into the Extensions folder - use Kext Helper!!) 6. Reboot AFAIK this is for cosmetic purposes only (it changes the System Profiler entry from "Graphics by NVIDIA" to whatever you type in). Your video card will now show the proper name in System Profiler.

    I have exactly the same problem. Some people said that it was a EDID problem with my LCD monitor. Instead of connecting with dvi I use VGA or a DVItovga converter and everything is working alright. Try this!

    Hello everyone! If you want to get your GeForce 9500 GT 512MB working then you can better go to this link: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=139775
  5. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    I have a problem, I got everything working (XFX GeForce 9500 GT 512MB) but If i go to sleep and go back to my desktop then my mouse don't respond after a couple of seconds. Only if I restart my computer then the problem is gone. My question is if you guys have the same problem with the GeForce 9500 GT? Or am I the only one with this problem? I hope you guys can give me an answer.

    Labiri, I have the best results with iPC OSx86 10.5.6, you have to do this: First you have to do: - Remove from /System/Library/Extension every nvidia injector you could have installed, if you've never installed one you're clean and ready to go. - Put OSX86Tools to your desktop. How to get QE/CI enabled on XFX GeForce 9500 GT, let's start: - Install Nvidia 2009 modded drivers for 9500 GT with kexthelper (install kexts from Archive.zip, see the first page), do not reboot
 - Clean everything with OSX86Tools check all the options on main panel and run permission repair and clear extension kext
 - Again on OSX86Tools 
 - Click on the button add efi string
 - Click on gfx strings
 - Choose custom geforce (you need to scroll the list is the last one)
 - Enter your video card name "nVidia GeForce 9500 GT" - Enter your video card memory size "1024MB (1GB)" - NOW choosing your display configuration, choose custom - Enter NVCAP: "0400000000000300040000000000000700000000" - Import String to Boot Editor - Write com.apple.Boot.plist - Reboot with -x -v -f - Shutdown and boot - You can enable even Quartz GL from the main panel of OSX86Tools “Enable/Disable Quartz GL”
  7. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    I want to get my EDID working for mine LCD panel (Samsung SyncMaster 2032MW) with GeForce 9500 GT 512MB. Now I only have VGA output for mine GeForce 9500 GT. If I use DVI I only get a black screen. Somebody told me it has something to do with my EDID of mine LCD panel. The EDID of my LCD panel is: 00FFFFFF FFFFFF00 4C2DFE02 30324D50 22110103 802B1B78 2A9341A3 554A9827 155054BF EF80B300 81808140 714F0101 01010101 01012139 9030621A 274068B0 3600B10F 1100001C 000000FD 00384B1E 510F000A 20202020 20200000 00FC0053 796E634D 61737465 720A2020 000000FF 00485332 50383033 3935320A 20200006 I added as an attachment the information of my monitor and videocard. I hope someone can help me to make a DisplayProductID-XXX.plist (you can change information with PlistEdit Pro) to put in System/Library/Displays/Overrides. There should be a simple program called "np_'s Display Utility" what should make this profile for my monitor so DVI would work (see this topic: http://forum.osx86scene.com/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=1482 ). But I can't find this program. I hope someboy can help me to get np_'s display utility (if I search for it I can't find it) or a way to use my EDID of my LCD panel to get DVI working.

  9. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    EDID could be the problem, but there is one thing I don't understand, why is DVI working if I use solution 1 (see post 45): 1. First put OSX86Tools to the desktop. 2. Then do the following: - Open OSX86Tools - Add EFI Strings - Click on GFX Strings - Choose Custom GeForce (you need to scroll the list) - Enter your video card name (in my case: "nVidia GeForce 9500 GT" - Enter memory size (in my case: "512MB") - NOW choosing your display configuration, choose "VGA / DVI-I" - choose "Import String to Boot Editor" - choose "write com.apple.Boot.plist" 3. Reboot 4. Open OSX86Tools for the last time: - choose "Enable/Disable Quartz GL" My question is, how I can change my configuration so EDID is working. Keep in my mind that my videocard is a low profile XFX GeForce 9500 GT 512MB with only a DVI output. If I want to use VGA I need a DVItoVGA converter. With this converter I can use VGA, and this is working in MacOSX. My other question is if you have sleep problems? If I go back from sleep, my mouse isn't responding.
  10. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    marionez first I want to thank you for your help past few days! I don't understand why my NVCAP is wrong. With the rom of my videocard I have made this NVCAP with NVCAP MAKER. So I think 0400000000000100060000000000000700000000 is alright. Even if I try the same NVCAP as yours -> 0400000000000300040000000000000700000000 I can't get DVI. But what i dont understand is why you get DVI. Do I missed a step? I have followed this: Before you install:
- Remove from /System/Library/Extension every nvidia injector you could have installed, if you've never installed one you're clean and ready to go. - Put OSX86Tools to your desktop. Howto get QE/CI enabled on XFX GeForce 9500 GT, let's start:

 - Again on osx86tools
 - Click on the button add efi string
- Click on gfx strings
 - Choose custom geforce (you need to scroll the list is the last one)
 - Enter your video card name "nVidia GeForce 9500 GT"

  11. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    Hello everybody, I hope somebody can help me? I have a Low profile XFX GeForce 9500 GT 512MB with the following NVCAP: 0400000000000100060000000000000700000000. Device ID: 0x0640. I use the iPC OSx86 10.5.6 distro and use no video injectors with the clean install. My desktop is a Dell Optiplex 755 SFF. At the moment there are 3 solutions to get your GeForce 9500 GT working with CI & QE: Solution 1: 1. First put OSX86Tools to the desktop. 2. Then do the following: - Open OSX86Tools - Add EFI Strings - Click on GFX Strings - Choose Custom GeForce (you need to scroll the list) - Enter your video card name (in my case: "nVidia GeForce 9500 GT" - Enter memory size (in my case: "512MB") - NOW choosing your display configuration, choose "VGA / DVI-I" - choose "Import String to Boot Editor" - choose "write com.apple.Boot.plist" 3. Reboot 4. Open OSX86Tools for the last time: - choose "Enable/Disable Quartz GL" The problem with above is that sleep and mouse is working but if I change resolution I get a blue screen. This means I can't play games. With above I can use DVI and VGA. But it is no option if I can't play games because of the blue screens. Solution 2: Before you install:
- Remove from /System/Library/Extension every nvidia injector you could have installed, if you've never installed one you're clean and ready to go. - Put OSX86Tools to your desktop. Howto get QE/CI enabled on XFX GeForce 9500 GT, let's start:

With DVI I get a black screen when I start up my computer. Sleep is a problem because when i go back to the desktop my mouse isn't working. I also used another NVCAP from marionez but his NVCAP gives exactly the same problems. Solution 3: With the solution posted on this forum -> post 64. I also get my videocard working on the same way as with solution 2, but I get a CHIPSET MODEL UNKNOWN NVIDIA CARD. This is only a cosmetic problem. I also have the same problems as with solution 2 -> can't use DVI -> only VGA is possible. With DVI, I get a black screen when I start up my computer. Sleep is also a problem. I think the best is solution 2 because it is working alright and you don't get CHIPSET MODEL UNKNOWN NVIDIA CARD. Only I want to have a good working sleep and want to use DVI and at the moment this isn't working.

  13. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    I have to say one thing. If I start up my computer with everything installed with above, then it is working in VGA but not under DVI. I really want to use DVI. Do you guys when you use above use VGA or DVI?
  14. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    I did the following on a clean install of the iPC x86 10.5.6 distro and it still didn't work: - install Nvidia 2009 modded drivers for 9500gt(CLICK) with kexthelper (install kexts from Archive.zip) - clean everything with OSx86tools check all the options on main panel and run permission repair and clear extension kext - again on osx86tools - click on the button add efi string - click on gfx strings - choose custom geforce (you need to scroll the list is the last one) - enter your video card name "nVidia GeForce 9500 GT" - enter your video card memory size "512MB" - NOW choosing your display configuration, choose custom - enter NVCAP - Import String to Boot Editor - Write com.apple.Boot.plist - reboot with -x -v -f - shutdown and boot I have tried with NVCAP "0400000000000300040000000000000700000000" (from you) and my own "0400000000000100060000000000000700000000", both didn't work. Do you know why I still get only a black screen when I start my computer with above.
  15. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    I use a iPC OSx86 10.5.6 distro. So you suggest that I first install the kext from post 33 and then put in with OSX86Tools the NVCAP on this way?: 1. First I put OSX86Tools to the desktop. 2. And do this: - Open OSX86Tools - Add EFI Strings - Click on GFX Strings - Choose Custom GeForce (you need to scroll the list) - Enter your video card name (in my case: "GeForce 9500 GT" - Enter memory size (in my case: "512MB") - NOW choosing your display configuration, choose "custum" - Enter "0400000000000100060000000000000700000000" - Choose "Import String to Boot Editor" - Choose "write com.apple.Boot.plist" 3. Reboot
