  1. hey folks, i just updated to 10.8.3 and when checking i noticed my ram is showing 8GB when i have 12GB installed, has this happened to anyone else and if so is there a solution to remedy this? thanks
  2. does anyone have the kexts from the first page as the links dont seem to be working and i need to get my system up and running, thanks
  3. [GUIDE] Installing Lion DP4 + GM Without USB(Video)

    i've followed the instructions but still have no sound, i think everything else is working fine, i just dropped the applehda kit onto kit utility then restarted but still no sound...help
  4. finally....got my new 9400GT GPU installed on my system, just bought a hdmi cable and it works, resolution is 1080p fingers crossed i dont find any more faults only problem i can find so far is video streaming is jittery and out of sync, 1080p movie playback is fine fixed......refresh rate was on 24hrz upped to 60hrz
  5. could the reason my graphics aren't displaying properly be my power supply? too low? i have 450w psu i've seen threads on the web stating problems displaying graphics with this board
  6. {censored} in my haste and countless sleepless nights i had not replaced the graphics card at all , so i went ahead and replaced the graphics card, same stuff happens screen doesn't work. i also changed all my boot files to the last ones fabio posted and i have no sound, but that can be fixed
  7. i just got back from the computer store, i took my 9600GT back and got it changed for a 9400GT 1GB, put the graphics card into my system, now when i reboot i just get a load of white lines across the screen, i tried the card in different slots with the same outcome, thought the card might be at fault, but tried the card in another system and it works fine, any ideas people? edited to add, i had a spare HDD so i installed window7 on it with my old graphics card, i then run the asus utilities that come with the motherboard and got everything updated, i then replaced graphics card for the new one and hey presto, everything works, i have a few more kexts in my ext folder than fabio though, and it took 3 restarts to eventually work(i was just getting a blue screen?) so thank you to everyone who contributed to this thread and helped me get my system running, i hope my posts can help others in the future
  8. here is my current situation, i followed this guide, used fabio's latest uploads but i still was in low resolution, so i swapped the graphics card from my 1st build(nvidia 8400gs 512) and woohoo it works....sort of, my resolution is 1280x768, now my problem i think is i have too many kexts ?? because i have restarted a few times and sometimes i get a blue screen and it also takes a while to start up here's a picture of my extensions folder kexts.tiff just found out my sound doesn't work :s edit. just added AppleHDA.kext from the audio zip from page 6, sound now works
  9. GeForce 9600 GT

    hi folks, i'm trying to get this card to work on my system, with not much success :s i've just built my 2nd system (specs in signature)got it updated to 10.6.3 but graphic resolution is low 800x600 is there a kext for this graphics card?
  10. here is what my extra folder has in it com.apple.Boot.plist dsdt.aml smbios.plist Extensions.mkext and the Extensions folder, in the extensions folder are as follows AppleHDA.kext EvOreboot.kext fakesmc.kext HDAEnabler.kext IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext P6T-SE.kext i downloaded the dsdt and extra files for the latest thundercat restarted and this seems to have almost everything fixed except for the graphics, resolution is at 600x800 but if i try to up it the screen goes blue??? if i could have higher resolution now then i think it would be near perfect, i have had a higher resolution than this whilst running 10.6.3
  11. thanks for your patience with me i've updated specs to my sig just to recap, i followed instructions on page one used the 10.6.2 update package, updated to 10.6.3, used iFabio's uploads and instructions restarted but could not get online, replaced dsdt file with the former one which i'm typing from now, still have no sound and resolution is low, hope someone can help me figure this out, thanks just restarted and now my graphics are set at 1024x768 this is the only option available, i've lost sound again, sleep no longer works and my fans seem to be running too fast(loud) i'm glad i'm not the only one who has gone through this to get a stable hackintosh
  12. here's how my com.apple.Boot.plist file looks now <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>boot-uuid=9C8FC41B-7514-34C5-B64D-C3832388955F=*uuid </string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1280×1024×32</string> </dict> </plist> i installed the kexts for audio found in this thread, sound now works but graphics don't seem to be right (resolution gives one option of 1024x768 and time machine wont work?? sleep function also no longer works but i'm not too bothered about that
  13. here is what is showing in my com.apple.Boot.plist file <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">'>http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>boot-uuid=F1495F65-92E6-3EAF-BFAB-8B0FC32A0677=*uuid </string> </dict> </plist> and here is what i'm seeing in my smbios.plist file <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SMbiosvendor</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>MP21.88Z.005C.B01.0608221120</string> <key>SMbiosdate</key> <string>08/28/2008</string> <key>SMboardmanufacturer</key> <string>Apple Computer, Inc.</string> <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-F4208DC8</string> <key>SMfamily</key> <string>MacPro</string> <key>SMmanufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>MacPro4,1</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>W88033AKY51</string> <key>SMsystemversion</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>SMUUID</key> <string>00000000-0000-1000-8000-0016174EE065</string> <key>SMmemtype</key> <string>24</string> <key>SMmemspeed</key> <string>1800</string> <key>SMmemmanufacter</key> <string>Apple Computer</string> <key>SMmemserial</key> <string>100000000</string> <key>SMmempart</key> <string>1</string> <key>SMcputype</key> <string>1281</string> <key>SMbusspeed</key> <string>4800</string> <!-- <key>SMmaximalclock</key> <string></string> --> </dict> </plist> the only thing i changed in the smbios.plist was the memspeed to 1800 what should these lists look like ? my memory is ddr3 geil 1800
  14. well it seems i'm at the same point as lfcfanatic, up to date with 10.6.3 graphics work but in display there is only one resolution option , no sound and my processor comes up as unknown? not sure exactly what to change in the smbios.plist
  15. almost done, i'm up and running on 10.6.3 but now i have no sound and my resolution is really low, if i try to up it i get a blue screen, what do i need to do to fix this? thanks for all the help in getting me up and running
