    Extremely Fast CPU Clock

    Hey everyone, Specifications: Aspire V5-473G-6814 * Intel i5 4200U 1.6GHz with Turbo Boost up to 2.6GHz * Geforce GT 740M (2GB) Optimus with Intel HD Integrated * 8GB DDR3 * Qualcomm Atheros AR5BWB222 Wireless Adapter * Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller Ethernet * Synaptics Touchpad So the laptop came with Windows 8 pre-installed, and I partitioned by shrinking the existing partition and installing Mavericks 10.9 using Chameleon using a flash drive with the patched kernel for Haswell to prevent the kernel panic from occurring. Mavericks was installed successfully and could be booted into using Legacy Boot and Chameleon using the -x flag to boot into safe mode as the Geforce graphics card prevents the OS from booting. Upon the first boot, all of the graphics kexts were deleted to allow boot without the -x flag. It was now possible to boot with Chameleon into MacOSX. I was told to try out Clover as a bootloader which allowed a UEFI boot. By using Clover the resolution and QE/CI for the Intel Graphics was fixed and I was able to boot into both Windows and OSX from the boot menu without breaking neither of the installs. The only problem is that by using Clover the clock of the CPU is running extremely fast (This is seen by the clock running for a minute every 5 seconds). This makes it extremely hard to use the system as all keystrokes are being input many types in a second. The graphics become extremely glitched and the entire system becomes unusable. Since Clover is relatively new for me I haven't figured out how to use much if it yet, and I haven't seen anyone else having the same problem that I have. I would also need to disable the Geforce in the system to save battery life, get audio, ethernet, and maybe wifi running as well with speedsteps and sleep support, but initially I would like to solve the problem of the fast clock. I've also noticed that in Clover the specifications of CPU might be incorrect but I am not sure. Anyone? All and any help will be appreciated! Thanks and have a Happy New Year! Any

    Lenovo Y560 DSDT

    Hey I tried your new DSDT and the driver for ALC272 and the VGA port worked with the new DSDT. I'm having trouble using it though as if I turn on mirroring the screen on the external gets distorted and without mirroring it works fine. I also need to add a higher resolution as all the resolutions listed are not the full resolution of my monitor. The modified ALC272 kext on the other hand did not work. I used kextstat to see if the kext was loaded and it wasn't loaded so maybe I need to add my device IDs or something. I will send you the new IOreg. Also would it be possible for you to send me the modifications you made in the DSDT as I have another DSDT with the VGA not working but it has shutdown and restart working perfectly so hopefully I can combine them together or something. Edit: Added DSDT Link https://www.dropbox.com/s/cfoicqwtsw962y3/famousginni_new.ioreg

    Lenovo Y560 DSDT

    Here are the files that you requested. Keep in mind I have QE/CI with FullRes enabled using native Lion Drivers with GraphicsEnabler=Yes, and AtiConfig=Orangutan. The HDMI works without sound, but the VGA does not. DSDT: https://www.dropbox.com/s/eyjj32t70acq9tl/dsdt.dsl IOREG: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qbt1vemqmp81rnb/famousginni.ioreg I tried attaching them as attachment but for some reason it wouldn't let me so I used dropbox instead.

    Lenovo Y560 DSDT

    So, I've gotten 10.7.1 running on my laptop. I could say 95% of it is working. My VGA port is not working, the battery life is meh even with Native SpeedStep working, and the audio through HDMI isn't working. I have a ALC272 on this laptop running with Voodoo HDA, but I would prefer if I can get it working without it. Many of the fixes that I've see that might work use DSDT and I no nothing. I've tried following tutorials but that isn't working... anyone want to help me with this daunting task?
  5. It's been a long 8 hours trying to get this working, and I am now confused. I've installed 10.7.1 on my laptop with a USB and have gotten Bluetooth working out of the box (I can't turn it off), I've gotten sound working using Voodoo HDA, the Keyboard and Trackpad are working (No Multitouch YET), Broadcom Ethernet working flawlessly, and finally my ATI 5730m working with full QE/CI with no additional kexts with the HDMI Port also working. My problem lies with the Wireless (Intel BGN 1000) and the ATI 5730. I know the wireless won't work or will only work with unsecured networks. I've tried using IO80211.kext but that didn't work so if anyone can point me in the right direction to even get it semi-working I'll be good. The problem with the ATI 5730 is that I want to get HDMI audio working and my VGA port working as well as my external monitor is VGA. I realized that you can do this with DSDT but I am clueless and have no experience with that, so I will need a little help. So, if anyone wants to help out please do and hopefully I can create a guide for this laptop as the few other guides that are present are severely outdated. Thanks

    DSDT needed for Dell Inspiron 6400

    Sorry to bring back this thread from the dead but I also have a Dell 6400 laptop with a ATI x1400 , no bluetooth, wifi, and 2GHz intel core duo. I'm new with this DSDT hacking and I was wondering how I am supposed to set it up for my laptop. Hopefully someone can help this noob out. I've searched the forums and can't seem to understand the tutorials..
