  1. [100% Working] ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470

    Rakusson Hi, I don't have an eMachines notebook, mine is ASUS X52J, I was just looking for someone with similar problems (gradient and colors). PM sent.
  2. [100% Working] ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470

    Any of you guys with eMachines and HD5470 512MB experience gradient problems - like running less than 32 bit colors? I've injected the EDID so the resolution is fine, QE/CI, Display profiles says 32-bit, but something isn't right. I got this weird gradient problem that's messing up the whole thing. If anyone have any suggestions, I'm all in for testing. Also wake from sleep doesn't work, even with the DSDT stuff properly edited (Mald0n thanks!). I'm using Hoolock, 10.7 DP4 kexts.
  3. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Mald0n, thanks a lot. It does now shutdown and goes to sleep properly, also nativePM works like a charm (down 7-8 degrees compared to using NullCPU...). No image on wake though, but I think that's because I use Lion kexts on Snow leopard and 5470 isn't fully working.
  4. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Hi Mald0n, I tried to use DSDT Auto Patcher for my ASUS notebook X52J, but it gives me error when I try to extract the DSDT from the system. I'm having problems with sleep (hangs) and with shutdown. Currently running 10.6.8. My system specs are: Asus X52J: Core i3-370M, ATi Mobility Radeon HD5470 (512MB). I'm complete noob when it comes to DSDT editing, and would really appreciate some help. I've included the run_me file in the post. Please let me know If I have to provide more info or anything. Thanks. P.S. Also, I'm having tough time passing the [PCI configuration begin] during the Lion install, and that's the second reason I want to have proper DSDT, may be it could help me get the Lion installed... send_me.zip
  5. [100% Working] ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470

    Hey guys, I've tried the kexts from the first post, and they don't work for me. After booting using -v, the system is up (i think that because when I press the ON button followed by Enter I can see the messages saying CPU halted like system shutting down), but the display goes all scrambled (nothing readable except for Vervet where I can see the text from verbose boot and a black vertical line covering the middle of the display, hiding part of the text) in all three personalities I tried: - Hoolock - Eulemur - Vervet I'm currently running fresh 10.6.7 with the kexts from the first post and latest Chameleon. When booting I can see message Not loading kext.ATI5000Controller - not found and kextd not available at early boot. Don't know if its relevant, thought I should mention that. Do you have any suggestions what else should I try? Specs: ASUS X52JE Core i3-370M AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5470 512 MB 4GB RAM No dsdt 1366x768 native res P.S. 10.6.0 gives me 1024x resolution, updated to 10.6.7 using combo. Had to use -x -s and stop IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext as well, as kernel panics during the final phase of the update. Thanks.
  6. DSDT fixes for Gigabyte boards

    Hello Gigabyte users, I have a couple of questions regarding the DSDT patching, and I believe the active people in this thread can help me out (as I’m a complete noob in this field, but learning fast). If it’s a tough thing to explain, I would be really grateful for pointing me to some links where I can find the needed information. First of all, my specs are as follows: Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-S3G GPU: Galaxy GeForce 7600 GS (PCIe) Processor: Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5200 OS: OSX Leopard 10.5.8 - For the installation I have used Retail 10.5.4 Leopard with the boot132 method and Chameleon Extra folder; currently updated to 10.5.8; DSDT built with the GUI DSDT Patcher from ~PCWiz. Currently I have experienced a problem which suddenly came out, or I have never noticed it before (I doubt it) - my keyboard Microsoft Wireless Laser 6000 v2.0, started to type itself strange combinations, including turning the Calculator.app on. I thought it’s due to drained battery and replaced it with an ordinary PS/2 (using a PS/2 fix) for the night, until I buy some new batteries. Unfortunately, the battery wasn’t the problem and it continued with the strange input every couple of minutes, which made it completely useless. After a couple of days, I borrowed a nice DSLR camera from a friend, and for my surprise when I plugged the SD Card adapter into the USB slot it turned on for a sec, and then I got the “Your hardware was improperly turned off” or something similar. It seemed that the computer thinks that I have taken out the USB Adapter, when I actually haven’t touched it at all. Since then, I decided to read a little bit for the DSDT as I have had only taken a quick look on the thread, and I thought this could fix my problem. It actually did. I used the latest posted DSDT (for GA-EP35-DS3L) in the first post of the thread. What changed: - I have perfectly working USB ports (keyboard’s working again, memory sticks and SD adaptor working fine, too) - When I sleep the computer, It turns on with a mouse click (never happened before) - I have quite a few more spinning beach balls, especially in Safari and Photoshop CS3. Actually PS works horribly slow. I was thinking of getting my DSDT fixed properly for two reasons, - I want to get my system properly working and I’m thinking of upgrading to Snow Leopard next month. Things I want to fix in the DSDT: - Processor - GPU - Remove the lines that are not needed (or leave them if it’s not a problem) Please give me a hand on finding a way to edit the info for the Processor and GPU and also to get rid of the unneeded kexts. Thanks in advance.

  8. 10.5.8 deep sleep problem?

    Nicely done, Pista7! Working as a charm!! Thanks a lot.
  9. 10.5.8 deep sleep problem?

    I have file called dsdt.aml in the root directory (/) of the Leopard startup HDD. I had it before the new HPET dsdt. I didn't put it myself, I thought the DSDT Patcher GUI would do that for me? No "Save in Folder" option when I was creating it, I only pointed my Mac HDD. Do you think it is still the old one, and I should move the new one from a different location to root directory? Edit: After trying everything shown in above posts, I moved to the final step - backed up the 10.5.8 Kernel, and restored the one from 10.5.7 using OSX86Tools. Sleep now works as before. I'm not quite sure if the old one will make any problems, it seems fast and reliable for the past 10 minutes What do you guys think better choice - using the new kernel without sleep (and waiting for other fix) or having an old one with system 100% functioning?
  10. 10.5.8 deep sleep problem?

    Thanks bolly and Mac_Dude. I just reinstalled the 10.5.8 update to get back the kext and left it in S/L/E, removed Disabler.kext, created new Dsdt with HPET thing, rebooted and the system didn't started - kernel panic caused by AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. Removed it under Windows using Macdrive and everything came back from where I started - no sleep. However, after 2 hours and nearly million restarts, I'm leaving it as it is. I'll be looking at the thread for further testing, just not today.
  11. 10.5.8 deep sleep problem?

    Could anyone please send me the original 10.5.8 AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext, because I deleted it after the 10.5.8 update. Quite stupid of me, without backing up... I just removed Disabler.kext, the sleep still doesn't work properly, i.e. the screen gets off, I can hear "tick" from shutting the system off like before in 10.5.7, but it doesn't load again after clicking the power button and it needs either reset or holding the power button to switch off. Everything else works fine here - GA-P35-S3G, E5200 Core2Duo, GALAXY 7600 GS
