  1. Gainward 8400GS 1GB

    OK, I've tried that one. When connected via the VGA port I can now get 1280x1024, QE/CI with no injectors in E/E. Chameleon is set to GraphicsEnabler=Yes. If I connect to the DVI port and boot up normally then I still get a black screen but if I enter GraphicsEnabler=No when booting up then I get to the desktop but with no QE/CI. I hope that made sense? I don't know if this will help but the card has the following ports on it - DVI, HDMI and VGA. I don't use HDMI. Chris
  2. Gainward 8400GS 1GB

    Oooh I think we're getting there. I installed the files, repaired permissions & rebuilt caches. After rebooting I just got a black screen so I decided to try and connect to my monitor via the VGA connection rather then DVI - this seemed to work! I had QE/CI etc. However when I went to change the screen resolution to 1280x1024 I just got a blue screen. I have disabled GraphicsEnabler and I'm about to try NVEnabler. I will report back and let you know how I get on. Chris Update..... I'm now using NVEnabler from Tonymacx86's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] installer running at 1280x1024 connected to the VGA port. QE&CI is working perfectly. I will try switching back to the DVI port and see what happens. Chris

    Hi there I've attached a zipped file containing my dsdt.aml, ioregistry file and nvdanv50hal.kext. Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks Chris Files.zip

    Ok, I shall do that this evening when I get home. Thanks for this. Chris
  5. Gainward 8400GS 1GB

    I thought I'd put the dev ID in the original post but it looks like I missed it. The dev ID for my card is 0x10DE10C3. My system is using dsdt although I've not edited my dsdt for the graphics card - I'm using the Chameleon graphics enabler.
  6. Gainward 8400GS 1GB

    I've recently built a desktop hackintosh which is fully working except for the QE/CI side of graphics. The card that I have is a Gainward 8400GS 1Gb. If I use Graphics Enabler=Yes the card is detected in that it register's the correct amount of RAM etc but doesn't identify the card as an NVIDIA 8400GS and doesn't enable QE/CI. I've tried adding the ID - for my card into the Plist for the NVDANV50Hal - when I do this I get a black screen. Using NVEnabler makes no difference either. I have tried a Custom EFI string but this didn't enable QE/CI. If I use the AnVAL boot loader the card is recognised but no QE/CI. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what else I can try? Is it possible that this card is simply not supported by the NVidia Drivers? I have updated the drivers from Tonymacx86 but this didn't help. My setup is as follows - Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L v1.1, Intel E6500 CPU, 2Gb RAM + Gainward 8400GS 1Gb. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks Chris
  7. Have you managed to get your card working yet? I have a Gainward 8400GS 1GB and while the card is recognized QE/CI is not enabled. I've tried adding an EFI string, a DSDT edit and adding the device ID to NVDANV50HAL with no success.NVEnabler hasn't helped either.
  8. Hey Consolation, thanks for that. I'd placed the voodoo audio kext in e/e, its now been moved to s/l/e and audio is back :-) Will do some more testing when I get a chance.
  9. Hi Leppy Just tried your latest /extra package on my D820 and thought I'd give some feedback. It seems to be working better than it was previously, I think its starting up faster than it was before, sleep now works too. I'm running 10.6.1. My D820 has a Core Duo rather than a Core 2 processor, NVidia 120M graphics card and 3Gb RAM. The only thing that I've noticed so far is that sound has stopped working. Will try restoring the VoodooHDA kext file to see if that gets sound going in the meantime. Thanks Chris
  10. Hey Leppy Great work so far! I'm running a D820 with NVidia NV120 graphics +256 Video RAM. I've tried 10.6, 10.6.1 both of which work well apart from the already known sleep issue. I tried 10.6.2 but ran into the same issue as most of the other NVidia owners on here - i.e. not able to use the DVD app. If you need me to do any testing on this particular flavour of D820 then give me a shout. Cheers Chris
