  1. Compaq Presario c700 Help

    Install VoodooPS2Controller to get internal keyboard and trackpad working (no scrolling + tap but who cares).
  2. How you tried this: Using iPC 10.5.6 PPF5 Final install with no custom kexts except Conexant HiDef Audio: Uninstall all custom *Power* kexts. Install 10.5.7 combo Install VoodooPower (or Enhanced Intel SpeedStep 1.4.0), VoodooBattery, Leopard PowerManagement.bundle (-> this ones seems to do not much?) Install VoodooPS2Controller Install AppleSMBIOSEFI. I have sleep working. However, sometimes KB/Mouse does not respond after waking. I am having a prblem with the fan algo. It does not spin at all until CPU hits 80C, and whirls full blast for about 5 seconds and stops after dropping to 78C!!! This leads the notebook ALWAYS operating at about 75C, which is too hot and sometimes freezes. In Windows/Linux/DOS the fan usually always spins at a quiet, low speed and keeps the CPU temp below 60C. Any ideas?
  3. Erratic Touchpad on c700

    Install VoodooPS2Controller (I am using 0.98). It is from the makers of Chameleon. You don't get scrolling and tapping as reduces functionality of touchpad to PS/2 mouse. However, the touchpad is very reliable this way. Go here: http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php/topic,235.0.html The only two problems I have left are wireless (Atheros 5007 - no one seems to have got it to work) and a problem with fan threshold and algorithm. In BIOS, DOS, Windows and Linux, The fan typically operates with about 4 speeds: off (<50C I think), quiet (most of the time), medium (under load) and full (hot day + load). However, in iPC Leopard 10.5.7, the fan is always off until the CPU core temp reaches 80C, at which point the fan ramps to 100% (very loud) for a few seconds (>10) until the temp drops below 79C, at which point it shuts. Thus the notebook is on average always very hot (70-80C) and this is starting to bend the case (as well as causing freezes sometimes due to overheating) ! Anyone with ideas? In other OSes the fan is normally on low, which is nice and quiet while maintaining a good temperature (55/65C idle/load). I have a C792VU with CPU swapped to T5750 (2Ghz, 667FSB, 2MB) and 2GB 667 RAM. SpeedStep works with Enhanced SpeedStep kext 1.4.0 from X Labs section of forum and also VoodooPower (use only one of them!). VoodooBattery handles the battery meter and with AppleSMBIOSEFI or SMBIOS Rev6 MacBook (from iPC 10.5.6 PPF5 Final disc) the X3100 is recognized with QE/CI after updating the 10.5.7 using combo update (i.e. vanilla Apple kext). Any questions just ask. PS. you can install iPC in about 10mins (including boot up!) by using Carbon Copy Cloner to make a clone on a USB drive and then installing EFI bootloader on it with OSX86 Tools. Much less stress on the poor old optical drive (seeks like crazy when booting OS X install disc).
