  1. Glad you got it sorted! Happy to help.
  2. The fact that you are only seeing a couple of plist files leads me to think you may be looking in wrong location (possibly in your User's "LaunchAgents" folder, and not the System location). There should be several hundred files in /System/Library/LaunchAgents. Also, be sure that you have SIP disabled, otherwise you won't be able to modify anything in /System/Library/LaunchAgents.
  3. Hmm, that is strange. I just checked on several other Macs that I have access to, and "com.apple.mediaanalysisd.plist" exists in "/System/Library/LaunchAgents/" on each one. Did the launchctl command fail, or is the plist file actually missing?
  4. I was able to find a solution on another forum. The issue appears to be related to iCloud Photos. The fix that has been working for me involved disabling the 'mediaanalysis' daemon. To do so, run the following command: sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.mediaanalysisd.plist Simply deleting the 'com.apple.mediaanalysisd.plist' will also do the trick. Hope this helps.
  5. Anyone have any success resolving this issue? I've been experiencing it since upgrading to Sierra.
  6. I think I've found a fix for my issue - avoiding the HDMI port on my graphics card. I have two monitors. The first is hooked up via the GPU's DVI port and the other via the HDMI port. Since I stopped using the HDMI port for the second monitor, I haven't had a single random logout (the monitor is now connected via DisplayPort -> DVI). Hope this helps.
  7. WindowsServer Crashing - Multiple Monitors - 10.10.3

    How did you manage to solve this? I've been having a similar issue with dual monitors and a GTX 960 (1 monitor connected via DVI, the other via HDMI->DVI). The system randomly dumps me out to the login screen and it looks like a crashed WindowServer process is the culprit. I stopped using the HDMI port on the 960, and this seems to have solved my problem for the time being, but I'm curious what your fix involved.
  8. I recently installed a GTX 960 in my system running 10.10.3. Shortly after installing the new card, I started experiencing an issue in which the system would randomly close out all running applications and drop to the login screen. This was happening several times a day, and without any discernible rhyme or reason (it happened both while running graphics intense apps as well as normal system operation). Based on my review of the logs, it looks like the WindowServer process was crashing, with numerous references to both the OS X and nVidia drivers in the crash logs. Last night I put my old GTX 650 card back in the system and uninstalled the nVidia web drivers (I was running the latest version - 346.01.02f03). I have yet to experience the issue again, leading me to believe that it was probably related to the nVidia web drivers. Has anyone else experienced the same thing? I would really like to use the GTX 960 in my system, but the sporadic logouts are definitely a deal-breaker. Any thoughts or insight would be greatly appreciated!
  9. This happens to me more frequently than I would like. I have found a solution though - changing my Apple ID password. Every time this has allowed me to sign in to iMessage successfully on my hackintosh. It's a real pain though, as I have a lot of devices that then require updating the password on.
  10. Running 10.9 Build 13A603 on a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5-TH, GTX650, Core i7 3770k @ 3.5ghz
  11. I'm having the same problem on 10.8.4 on a hack Pro desktop. Did you ever find a solution?
  12. [SOLVED] 10.6.5 HDMI out on M1530/8600m GT

    To edit an all file you first need to decompile it: iasl -d filename.aml Which will create a dsl file which you can edit. To recompile the dsdt: iasl filename.dsl For the nvidia rom, I put mine both in /extra as well as the root directory / also, I didn't get it working until I renamed it NVIDIA.ROM (all caps). Hope this helps.
  13. Guide for Nvidia 8600m on 1064 - all outputs working

    I used the latest version of the Chameleon bootloader (v2 rc5 I believe) and simply ran the retail Snow Leopard install DVD.

    Does this NVCAP entry look correct? "NVCAP", Buffer (0x18) { /* 0000 */ 0x04, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x01, 0x00, /* 0008 */ 0x06, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, /* 0010 */ 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 },
