  1. Black screen to restart .how to undue last change

    I may venture into a new recommended to build board and install Lion or Mnt Lion but hey I am very happy with the solid feel of this OS and all is perfect so why fix it if it ain't broke, will have to see how some of the power apps perform before coming to any definite conclusions

  3. Black screen to restart .how to undue last change

    I am using eye boot it appears for only a second so I need to be quick.. If I install the ihack thing it gives me choices of Chameleon maybe I should try it...but what if it goes panicy? I am not using the eye boot CD in my drive anymore, its installed...I also did remove the files you mentioned above.... What works is the resolutions choices I get only if I boot with -v -f I guess thats not such a bad thing to have to do that but..... it wouuld be great to get rid of that boot method. What will happen if I install chameleon with ihack?

    I still don't have optional resolutions still just the one.. Wondering if this thread has something to help.. http://www.insanelym...howtopic=147394 this is my exact card plugged into DVI The wiki says to use myhack...http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.6.0#NVIDIA_2 8400GS 256MB PNY EFI-Strings (tested on [105] myHack installation method) I already downloaded it but afraid to install

  8. Black screen to restart .how to undue last change

    Dvi worked.thanks for helping rif Now one last thing is the sound.I have been following this guide because it is my mobo.. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=209359&st=0# Can you help me add this...Audio Open up G41M_Files/Audio and run AzaliaAudio.pkg. Install it on your HD. I don't have all this on a usb drive,but I can use a burned CD with the above files,just not sure of the method..
  9. Black screen to restart .how to undue last change

    I have done that before, but I have ibo ot and not the chameleon.not too sure but I will see if it does same thing. what do I type after I hit enter after the text streams down? that was fun I guess acording to this site insane.. I did the -v -f and it did indeed gibe me more resolutions...but when I tried to chane rez it blanked out my screen I hit restart and luckily it gave me back my screen but back to only one rez again wondering if plugging into the dvi port would be better.this card came with an adapter for that
  10. Black screen to restart .how to undue last change

    Thanks I installed it but just did restart I don't understand boot flags or when to type that in. anyway I still only have one rez. I read about permissions and all that,should I have done that and how?
