  1. So I've been messing with it for two evenings now trying to figure out what the problem seems to be. I put it to sleep by using the Apple menu->Sleep function. I successfully woke it once by moving/clicking the mouse; it took between 30 - 60 seconds to wake, but this was after it had been sleeping for about 5 minutes. I put it to sleep a second time and left it for about 30 minutes before trying to wake it and I can't get it to turn back on without reset or hard shut down. I did wait at least 10 minutes every time I tried to wake it. Any ideas about what the fix for this may be? Also, for the video card issue, if QE/CI is working then do you have any theories for why that Uniengine Heaven test failed so bad? Thanks for the help! You are indeed brimming with awesomeness
  2. Hello, First, here's my build: Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H V1.0 (bios f9) 8 GB DDR3 RAM Intel Core i3 2100 @ 3.09 GHz XFX Radeon 5870 3 SATA hard drives (OS on 1, RAID 1 for the other 2) Problem: I installed 10.8.3 vanilla using myHack, and then installed kexts to get my network and sound working. myHack also installed Chameleon 2.1 for me. (I would have asked the fine folks at myHack, but I did my introduction and still I haven't been promoted to poster status after a week and a half.) If the system goes to sleep it won't wake up. I disabled sleep and found that leaving the screen set to turn off worked, but it would only wake up if I press the power button, and if I leave it for an extended period that doesn't even work. For graphics, the desktop looks great, I get that splash effect when I drop a new gadget on the dashboard, and I can play videos. I tried to run Uniengine Heaven 4.0 just to see how it may handle games, but I got a black screen with a little corruption on it. I looked in the System Profiler and this is what is says for Graphics/Displays: Chipset Model: ATI Radeon HD 5870 Type: GPU Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 1024 MB Vendor: ATI (0x1002) Device ID: 0x6898 Revision ID: 0x0000 I notice that there's no Quartz Extreme or anything like that listed and if I understand correctly, it should definitely be there if everything is functioning properly. I'm confused by this because I thought this was one of those cards for which Mac OS has native support. Is there anyone out there brimming with awesomeness who could help me get these problems fixed? Much appreciated!
  3. I am currently trying to get Mac OS 10.5.6 installed on a new system. Everything works great except for the video which is giving me kernel panics with every driver installation that I try. I'm using the iPC 10.5.6 installation DVD. I have spent a large amount of time reading on the internet about getting this working, but I haven't been able to make headway. Hopefully the wizards here can show me the ways of the OSX86 guru. I have tried using the included Natit driver, the ATi 3600 series driver, and the seperate 3650 driver from Netkas. Issues are either a scrambled screen or almost immediate kernal panic. I would like to use the 3650 Netkas driver installation package if possible, but if there's a better way to get this working I would welcome it with open arms. I love learing new things like this, so the more input the better! The closest I've come to seeing it working is being in safe mode (because of panics) and system profiler telling me that I have a 3650 with 256 MB of RAM and no QE/CI support. Here's my system: AMD Athlon X2 6000 Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2HP 4GB PC2-6400 DDR2 RAM (800 MHz) Sapphire HD 3650 512 MB DDR2 Obligatory SATA HDD and DVD burner Thanks everyone!
