    Acer Aspire 5750-6834

    When I first got this laptop, I managed to get Mac partially working on it - in fact, I still remember how to do it. However, a few things that I couldn't get to work made me revert back to Windows/Linux. I am interested in giving this another try over the winter break. So, I have everything working except for the below. All kexts are vanilla, except for the NullCPUPower - Touchpad (ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad) and Keyboard (I could only get either the keyboard working, or nothing at all) - Audio (ALC269VB) - Sleep - Battery Life Any ideas on the above?

    Suggestions for ATI Card, running smooth at 1080p

    The local store doesn't carry it (their into the 7xxx series already....), so I went on ebay. There are actually a few cards that belong to a mac pro - will those work in my computer?
  4. Does anyone know of a ATI graphics card that is supported natively, and can output 1080p without lagging? I am using the Nvidia EN210 right now, and performance is horrible at times. I probably want something within the range of $40-$70 CAD

    Asus P5K-E - Cannot Sleep

    I currently have a vanilla Lion 10.7 installed. What Ive done to get it running 1. Bought Lion from App Store 2. Got it on a flash drive. 3. Installed on second HDD (removed others, this is now the only HDD) 4. Used USB to boot to second HDD (removed others, this is now the only HDD) 5. Installed kexts and chameleon to allow it to boot. 6. Full screen/QE/CI Achieved The computer was just reset, so the BIOS is in the default configuration. It is the newest version currently. Hardware that has been added: ASUS EN210 Silent 1GB What I can't get working: - DSDT (ends up getting stuck at FSCK, removing it causes it to be still stuck in the same place, even if I move nullcpupowermanagement back) - Sleep (does not work with sleepenabler) - Sound (AD1988B) Any ideas on this?

    Mouse Jumping

    Im currently experiencing random "jumping" with my mouse pointer. When moving the mouse, it works fine, then sometimes randomly jumps from position to position. After a while, it settles back down. It feels like os x suddenly set the pointer acceleration to the highest point possible, then back to the normal position. This isn't upstreamuserclient, I have a disabler for that. Im using 10.6.8, but it happened in 10.6.2 as well. I suspect that this is also related to some of the problems Ive been having with 10.6.8. Since I have a Nvidia Geforce 7800 GTX 256MB, which has the correct EFI Strings, I added the strings to the boot plist. It was all fine and dandy until I decided to upgrade to 10.6.8. Occasionally, on startup, the screen will flash different distored colors, then return to normal. This is the sign that my mouse won't work, as after the distored colors return to normal, the mouse pointer acceleration is increased to the highest point possible (again), and theirs no way I can use my computer like that. Generally, my mouse is also much less accurate than in other OSes as well, as the pointer sometimes speeds up by a little bit, occasionally. I don't know if this is related to the fact that im using a wireless mouse, but Im going to try a PS/2 one in a sec...
