  1. ATI Radeon HD 2400 and Snow Leopard?

    Hey, I've been trying to get my graphics card (ATI Radeon HD 2400) to work with Snow Leopard over the past few days with no prevail. I've tried messing around with EFI strings and I've used a few methods that used to work on Leopard. Im just aiming for control of resolutions to start with. I've tried the following: EFIStudio - Didn't achieve anything, apart from a bit of recognition in System Profiler. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=94090 - Didn't achieve anything, maybe some recognition in System Profiler. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=94090 - Working in Leopard very nicely but nothing except a bit of recognition in System Profiler on Snow Leopard. I've run out of ideas, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Josh
  2. Hey, I just downloaded a copy of Snow OSX and I've tried installing it onto my Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop. It's not going well. The disc will boot up, show the apple logo and as it launches the installer gives me the blue screen then the screen goes black (as if it's been turned off). I've had a similar problem before when installing Leopard, however with leopard the installer ran perfectly and I used the trick where you remove the power cable, leave the laptop lid closed for 15 mins, enter into sleep mode and that brings the display back. I have tried this after the screen has gone black but unfortunatly it didnt work. I assume this is related to my graphics card which is the, Intel GMA965 card. If anyone could give me any help I would greatly appreciate it. Josh
  3. IPhone doesn't support Flash player ?

    You are likely to find more apps that are based on flash games as you can use CS5 to create a flash based platform for the iPhone.
  4. No new iPhone until next year?

    I would take that with a huge pinch of salt, he will just say that so that he can make a sale. Once he's made a sale he won't care what happens to you in terms of a new iPhone being released.
  5. Fallout 3 Ported!

    Thank you so much for this, I have just bought a new Mac and now I can test it out with one of my favourite games .
  6. Steam For OS X a reality?

    I doubt it will have many games on there to start with, no where near the amount available on Windows.
  7. Hey, Well, I'm trying to get Leopard 10.5.2+ onto one of my computers so that I can take a look at the iPhone SDK. However I am having issues with both computers that I have tried installing OSX to. Currently I have tried installing to my Dell Inspiron 1520 and my Dell Inspiron 530 (Specs for both computers at the bottom). To start with I tried installing OSX on my Inpiron 1520 Laptop. I managed to get iAtkosv5i 10.5.2 installed. However when booting the laptop the screen would go blue then black as if it had been turned off. So that wasn't really going to work. I don't really know what I can do to fix this. I also tried Kalyway 10.5.1 without prevail, when booting for the first time it came up with b0 error. After giving up on my Inspiron 1520, I decided to give OSX a go on my Inspiron 530. Yet again I managed to get iAtkosv5i 10.5.2 installed however when booting I got another error. The screen came up with a stop/no sign on the apple logo while booting. So I tried again in -v mode and it came up with "Waiting for root device". I did some research into this and I needed to change my disk mode into AHCI however the desktop only supports IDE and RAID. So I tried Kalyway 10.5.1 and yet again it came up with the b0 error after installing and booting up for the first time. At the moment I am pretty stumped on what I can do next. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
