  1. Quick and easy fix for bluetooth and USB, run these through Kext Utility. Confirmed working, just that easy. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...d=1581032 (Post 8, if your browser does not take you right there.)
  2. My system is very vanilla, haven't gotten into dsdt patching and such. The only modification I have is the appleHDA.kext from this thread. Sound stopped working when I ran the update and worked after installing the kext, but USB did not.
  3. usb not working after 10.6.5 update Beta

    I just tried both editing the plist and deleting the kext. Still have no usb support. Editing the plist actually seemed to disable usb further, my mouse tracking LED went out.
  4. 10.6.5 seems to have killed bluetooth support. Edit: Seems to be a USB issue with 10.6.5, working on it in this thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;#entry1581032 Don't update if you need USB support.
  5. Sorry, my chameleon experience ends there, that method worked for me. You may want to check to see if there are any invisible folders on you root HD that are named "Extra". Google will tell you how to view invisible files in OS X. I've had my laptop with external monitors with both HDMI and VGA. It should automatically show something on your external screen. To further configure your monitors, go to your settings and click on "Display".
  6. Boot up with the disk, delete the "Extra" folder in your root HD, copy the "Extra" folder from the disk to your root HD, enjoy booting without the disk.
  7. It is illegal to download copywritten stuff off of the Internet. Companies do try to stop it from happening, but it is so massive that it is not that easy to stop. The upgrade disk costs $30 and made my install easy, so it was well worth it, and now I own it, even if Apple says that I can't license it.
  8. HP BCM4321

    I'm looking for someone to help me out here. I have a Vostro 3700 that had no way of connecting to wifi. I bought an HP BCM 4321 for $30 (cheaper than the apple one for 80). It is immediately recognized by vanilla kexts but I lose connection and can't find any APs, even if I turn the one on in my phone and have it right next to the laptop. I get my connection back when I restart, but it never lasts that long. Does this sound like a hardware problem or software? I have tried the BCM43xx enabler, but that does not change anything. If software, please link the fix. Thanks
  9. Introduce yourself.

    Long time linux user. Dabbled on OSX86, but didn't i the right PC for it at the time. Now I'm back with a Vostro 3700, which works great.
  10. I see "en1" with "status: inactive" when I run ifconfig in terminal. However, there is no airport in my network setup. I can get more info when I get home, but I'm bored at work and figured I would see what help I might be able to get. Also, is it normal to have mac to show me the shutdown prompt everytime I close the lid or plug or unplug power?
