  1. Hello everyone, I am using an Asus g60vx laptop with an Nvidia 260m graphics card. I use "GraphicsEnabler=yes" to get my graphics card to work. My only problem is that when I connect an external monitor to my laptop through HDMI, the computer freezes and the only solution is to hold the power button until it turns off, and then turn it back on. I have also tried VGA, and I get the same problem. I am currently running OS X 10.7, but I experienced the same problem with 10.6. However, I did not experience this problem with 10.5, and was able to use my external monitor without any problems. I currently dual boot with Windows 7 only to use the monitor. I need to turn off my laptop and boot into Windows 7 every time I want to use the monitor. I would rather just use OS X full time which would be easier for me and allow me more hard drive space. Any help would be appreciated.

    I use an older version of voodoohda because I do not like the mic sounds. You can mute the mic in the voodoohda preferences, which is what I used to do. The problem with that is, when the computer is starting up you will hear the mic noise for a few seconds. This may or may not be a problem for you. I can upload the voodoohda that I use if you want to do it that way.

    Audio is easy, all you need is voodoohda and it should work perfectly. Even the mic should work if you use the latest one.

    Sorry for taking a while to respond, I don't check this thread often anymore. I dual boot snow leopard and windows 7. Look through the thread, I posted the steps I did to do it on a single hard drive. I used a modified boot camp that converted the gpt partition into a gpt/mbr hybrid, allowing you to install windows. You need to install OSX first though.

    Hey sorry to resurrect this thread but has any g60vx user gotten 10.7 lion working yet? I am willing to try it if I have clear steps to follow, but I don't want to just start from scratch because I know it is going to end up being a big hassle. I think if 10.6 uses the same kexts as 10.7 then it would be easy to get it working.
