  1. Broadcom BCM43225

    Did you try adding the pci-vendor ID to the script located here? http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=51725 You'll find the vendor portion is the 14E4 part and the following 4 digit hex number is the device specific ID. It looks like PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_xxxx where the 'xxxx' is the 4 digit hex value you're looking for. You probably don't need to worry a whole lot about the subsystem specific information (that's the part that starts with &SUBSYS_xxxxyyyy) or the REV number ( &REV_zz ). This assumes you have the INF for your device. If not, then: I'd start at your laptop vendor's web-site and get their driver installer for that wifi nic. In that package you'll find the INF used by windows to install the driver. Search the INF for "43225" and you'll probably hit a device descriptor line that contains the pci/vendor id number. NOTE: you might find multiple entries for the same search string that is to say, searching for "43225" might give you several different pci id (the 4 digit hex number following the vendor id, which is probably 14E4, as mentioned above). It's probably safe to add them all to the script. you don't need to have windows installed on that laptop (I'm assuming that because the 43225 looks like a combined bluetooth+wifi mini pcie adapter used in laptops)... but you'll need to be able to extract the INF from the installer packager somehow. For instance, HP typically has a self extracting executable that temporarily writes the files to a location before launching the real driver installer. You'll need a windows setup to run the self extracting part, at least up to the point where the packaged files are extracted. Don't cancel at that point because the installer might delete the files... Just don't go any further than extraction... Go find the temp files (specifically the INF file) and copy them someplace else, then cancel the install. You should be able to do this with most self-extracting software, not just drivers... Let us know if this works for you...
  2. Blue screen then black screen

    Don't know if this will help - - - - here it is anyway - - - Using a 7900GT card with dual dvi - - - - one lcd is connected through kvm switch - - - - the other is directly connected and is the "main" display. If I switch away OR unplug the lcd that is connected to the kvm, the lcd that is directly connected will go black within just a few seconds. If I switch back the kvm OR plug the lcd back in, I cannot recover from the black screen on the main display. I'm not sure what all you've tried, but try switching to the other monitor port and tell us what the results are...
  3. Non working Nvidia video card thread

    BFG 7900 GT OC is also working - - - dual DVI-D displays, QE/CI, 1600x1200 NOTE: one LCD is connected through DVI-KVM switch - - - when I switch to another computer, the remaining LCD on the hackintosh eventually goes black. when I switch back to the hackintosh port on the kvm, I am unable to regain any video. leaving the machine running (i.e.- no sleep), the hackintosh does not exhibit any problems. ((( Totall off topic : I gave up on the X1600pro dual-dvi. Only one LCD would display. )))
  4. Don't blame you, I can't figure out why both "ATY,Wormy@0" and "ATY,Wormy@1" are both listed under "display@0" in ioreg. But there does not exist a "display@1" under the major heading "display@0,1". I just tried using 1 LCD connected via DVI-D and 1 LCD with a DVI-VGA adapter and then neither works. When both are DVI-D, then only one works. And it's always the same one. Anyone have any suggestions here?????? HA!! Maxx320000 to the rescue!!! Hey, great work!! And thanks for the input here... I will try this out in the morning!
  5. Uh, I don't qualify as "knows more...", so keep that in mind. Here's some anecdotal evidence to support your theory - - - I have 2 machines, configuration as follows: Machine #1 925 chipset celery P4 (apparently SSE3 capable?) X1600Pro PCIe with dual DVI & S-video connected via DVI-D to 2 LCDs Machine #2 915 chipset prescott P4 (apparently also SSE3 capable?) X1600Pro PCIe with 1xD-Sub 1xDVI & S-video connected via D-Sub to LCD On both machines I used JaS 10.4.8 (the reseed) I chose to NOT install the included X1x00 PCIe video package. Instead I used the Natit_ATIauto kext. Copied. Checked root:wheel. Checked chmod 755. Removed Extensions.*. Modified ATIRadeonX1000.kext Info.plist to include DevID 0x71C2 (both cards have same ID - which I think is a little strange) Reboot On Machine #1 I am able to output via DVI-D to just one LCD panel. The other LCD drops signal after the grey screen. On Machine #2 After grey screen the output to the LCD appears to be pixelized, or block-form static output. Moving the mouse around seemed to cause some rippling effect of the pattern - leading me to believe the machine was not frozen. As you stated - - - If the VGA port on the Machine #2 is port 0, the output of this port may actually be digital, which causes this macro blocking pattern to appear. When I connected a DVI-to-VGA adapter to the second port and switched the cable over, the screen loses signal. On Machine #1, only one port is active (and it must be DVI-D). Of interest is that this ioreg output lists a DFP1,EDID item, but no corresponding LVDS,EDID. I'm still looking through ioreg... But I think you're on to something here....
  6. AITauto just tried.... Clean JaS 10.4.8 install. Checked permissions and ownership. X1600pro I get display on 1 lcd panel using DVI-D. Second display also connected via DVI-D. No Video. No acceleration - - - BUT - - - I have not modified the ATIRadeonX1000.kext as mentioned earlier. I am more interested in the dual display possibility than acceleration , for the moment. So knowing that I haven't made any other mod's, any suggestions?
  7. Don't quote me on this, BUT - - - I don't think a PCI card will provide you with the acceleration capabilities. I seem to recall that was a big stink between PCI G4's and the AGP G4's. Only the AGP G4's would benefit from acceleration. It had something to do with the necessary bandwidth of the bus...
  8. Ati x1600Pro

    don't be angry! you'll just {censored} off a lot of people that are spending their own free time to do this - - - - and they've spent a lot more than "an entire weekend". You're coming in at a time when most of the hard work has already been done. Don't forget to donate when, where and for as much as you can - - - it keeps the wheels turning - - - Evangelism is over!! As for your problems, try using Natit... some have reported success with this extension. It seems to have set things up correctly enough on my system that I have full resolution support via DVI-D. I'm still working on the dual display and acceleration. http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=33007 NOTE: I modified nothing on my system. I simply copied this extension and verified ownership and permissions on it. Hope this helps,
  9. JaS.10.4.8.SSE3.Intel.Only.ReSeed

    There should be sufficient seeders to mitigate problems of last time....
