  1. NVIDIA 9 Series Driver Installer v2

    Is it safe to say that most 9800GT are supported? I am about to grab this card for professionnal use, so I need it to be damn stable Also, are there specific brands that I should go for (or avoid)? Thanks
  2. ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x & 10.6

    I'll test em if you're still on in ~8hours, can't be on my own PC right now.
  3. ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x & 10.6

    The 2900xt driver on the link you posted (http://radeonhd.ircd.dk/index.php?cid=1) does not work for me, there was a problem with one of the kext. I had to replace it with an old one, and now I have even more freezing problems than before
  4. Leopard Laptops with NON-working GMA X3100

    Dang it - I found out installing 10.5.5 put these kexts back in. But I get that damn blue screen And it used to work with 10.5.2 ... sigh
  5. Leopard Laptops with NON-working GMA X3100

    Could anyone post the original kexts from 10.5.5 ? I don't have the original kexts and I get the blue screen when I try the other kexts someone posted (rapid share link I think). Thanks.
  6. Laptop battery is shown now

    Hey slice, Where do you get those reports where you start with | | | Also, in the plist, do you actually replace the xml tags with yours or just replace the "IOKitPersonalities" portion of it? thanks
  7. Ok I posted that in the 2900XT thread but I figure I might have more chance to get an answer in the sticky thread I have a problem with the 2900XT driver and I have no clue how to fix it. Here's what going on (copied from another thread I made) : I downloaded Coda (from Panic) to try it out - and so far the software looks great. But I have a problem with managing site. When I manage a site and hit "save" or "cancel", or open a site for the second time (even if I reboot the software), my screen and my keyboard freezes. But I can still move the mouse (nothin happens tho) and I can still open the dvd drive with F12. (It had happened once or twice before, but with Coda I found a way to repeat the freeze) I have noticed it does not happen in safeboot (aka it seems that it is because of Quartz Extreme or Core Image). I also noticed it runs properly if I remove the video kexts (QE and Core Image being disabled there too). Would anyone mind downloading Coda (trial version avaible from their website) and tell me if their 2900XT crashes with this software, specifically when editing a Site (might have to do it a couple times in a row for it to crash). I am very curious to know what is causing this bug.
  8. Just before I update, I see there are drivers for NVidida and Intels card included in this. Will it work if I have an ATI card too (2900XT)? I'd rather know before installing
  9. My Hackintosh craches on specific task.

    More info discovered : the hackintosh will not crash if Quartz Extreme / Core Image is disabled (aka safe boot or no video kexts). I'm guessing this is related to my Kexts or maybe the software itselfs that crashes with 10.5.4
  10. ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x & 10.6

    I get a little bug when I install this kext, I think it might be related (not sure). Sometimes, when an animation starts (that uses QE I would guess) my computer freezes (I Coda from Panic to crash nearly every time you hit "edit" on a site). If I boot in safemode or if I delete the kexts (QE is disabled), everything is allright; it does not crash. I'm not sure what this might be, if there's anything I can provide to help fixing this (which might not be a bug in the drive actually, im not sure), let me know. Original thread here : http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=128740
  11. My Hackintosh craches on specific task.

    Ya I never assumed it was Coda's fault. I'd just like to figure what crashes my hackintosh
  12. Hello, My computer has been crashing lately. My screen freezes, the keyboard won't respond, but the mouse still moves (wont click tho) and the music is still on. Edit: I noticed I can open my dvd drive. Also, it does not crash when in safe mode. Could it be related to Core Image / Quartz Extrême? I'd like to try, but I don't know how to turn it off. I have found one thing that crashes nearly everytime (managing a site with CODA software). Mainly, I would like to get clues on what might be wrong with my installation / kexts that make my hackintosh crash. I guess a good start would be to find a way to get an error message of some sort. Anyone know how I can do that? Here's my setup : 10.5.4 installed from 10.5.2 Kalyway. Asus P5K board. C2D E6750 ATI HD2900XT.
