  1. Screen Blacks out

    Ok, the problem seems to occur more and more often. I'm getting a feeling that it has something to to with memory usage, as I had a similar problem/crash with an other build. But with the other build I would get the "You must restart you computer"-message (kernel error). I've been searching through the logs, but can't really find anything that seems to correspond to the crash. Does anyone have any suggestions? They would be much appreciated.
  2. Screen Blacks out

    In the last couple of days, I've been experiencing a new problem. While using the computer (running smoothly), suddenly the screen will drop out, to black/no signal. The first two times this happened, I was uploading files to my web server, and I had to restart my computer with the power/reset-button on the case. And then it happened again today. Watching a Web-TV stream, mu screen cut to black. There was still sound (from the show) coming over the speakers, so the system and software probably kept running fine. I tried to quit the browser by cmd+Q, and other combinations on the keyboard, but with no reaction. So i just restarted the computer with the power-button again. Running 10.6 (Snow) on a EP45-DS3, 4 gig memory and a HD 5770. Installed through [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with DSDT patch and Chameleon boot loader. No previous problems. Any suggestions on what could be going on here?
  3. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    Hi, I tried the same as SharkyNL did in Solution 1, and I'm experiencing the same problem. Everything seem to be running fine except when I try to change resolution (for instance playing games). Can someone pleas help me out? Solution 1: 1. First put OSX86Tools to the desktop. 2. Then do the following: - Open OSX86Tools - Add EFI Strings - Click on GFX Strings - Choose Custom GeForce (you need to scroll the list) - Enter your video card name (in my case: "nVidia GeForce 9500 GT" - Enter memory size (in my case: "512MB") - NOW choosing your display configuration, choose "VGA / DVI-I" - choose "Import String to Boot Editor" - choose "write com.apple.Boot.plist" 3. Reboot 4. Open OSX86Tools for the last time: - choose "Enable/Disable Quartz GL" The problem with above is that sleep and mouse is working but if I change resolution I get a blue screen. This means I can't play games. With above I can use DVI and VGA. But it is no option if I can't play games because of the blue screens. I'm running: - EP45-DS3 - Vanilla OS X 10.5.7 w./ Chameleon 2.0 (And Extensions) - 4gb RAM - nVidia GeForce 9500 GT 512 MB 128BIT
  4. I was wondering if someone could help me figure out which kexts I should download. The problem as I have understood is this 4gb RAM bug. I'm running: - EP45-DS3 - Vanilla OS X 10.5.7 w./ Chameleon 2.0 (And Extensions) - 4gb RAM - SATA HD - SATA DVD Been running this system for almost a year now and this is (almost) the only bug I've been experiencing. Not the biggest issue, but annoying enough. Mainly occurs while downloading big torrent files (1.2 gb and up), if I'm running a lot of tasks at once or during high disc activity. Anyone any suggestions?
  5. Looking for a good and reliable bluetooth dongle, and thought I'd ask what other people are using (or would recommend). Listed a couple in the poll, but too many models and brands to list all. Hope you get the idea... Read a bit here: Bluetooth on Hackintosh, What to look out for + what distance do you get with 100M dongle: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...9324&st=100 And also now that the new Magic Mouse is out: Apple Magic Mouse OSX86 - external bluetooth dongle: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=193272 Would be grateful for all comments and input. Thanks
  6. Hi, I don't know if this is the same as my problem, but some times when I open a lot of tabs in Firefox, I get the "You need to restart your computer"- screen (kernel panic). Installed kexts, and everything is running pretty much smooth, except this kernel panic, that keeps popping up quite frequent. I'm running: OS X 10.5.6 with BOOT-132 and Chameleon bootloader Gigabyte GA EP45-DS3 Intel Dual-Core 2,5GHz E5200 nVidia 9500GT 512MB 2x Kingston HyperX 2GB I haven't yet been able to monitor via the Activity monitor, to see if Firefox even can run up that much memory. But it the only program it's been a curing inn, especially when I try to open a lot of tabs at the same time. So please, anyone got an answer or an idea? Is this problem with ram, that you're discussing only valid for 4 GB? Since ZosoM3 says he uninstalled one of his four memmory sticks. (4x 1GB) And solved the problem. Would this also mean that I could for instance double mine to 8 GB (4x 2GB), and have it solved too, if mine is the same problem? (I need min. 4 GB to edit HD in Final Cut, so a downgrade/uninstall would not work for me)
  7. Hi, Some times when I open a lot of tabs in Firefox, I get the "You need to restart your computer"- screen. I'm running a EP45-DS3 with something like this BOOT-132 method: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=113288 Installed kexts, and everything is running pretty much smooth, except this kernel panic. I've been reading around on the forum and found something about 4 gb (2x2gb) memory: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=79019 I don't know if this is the same as my problem though. So please, anyone got an answer or an idea? I'm running: Gigabyte GA EP45-DS3 Intel Dual-Core 2,5GHz E5200 nVidia 9500GT 512MB 2x Kingston HyperX 2GB OS X 10.5.6 with BOOT-132 and Chameleon bootloader
