  1. For HDMI sound on a P6T SE and Radeon HD 5770, the attached DSDT enables HDMI sound. Thanks for all the hard work ErmaC! dsdt.aml.zip
  2. [GUIDE] - ASUS P6T SE - 10.7.2 - 100% WORKING

    If you have the above board and a (HIS) Radeon HD 5770 like me, you can use the attached, slightly modified DSDT (thanks to toleda) for HDMI sound. dsdt.aml.zip
  3. Odd HD 5770 Problem - Appeared 2 days ago

    Does no-one seriously have any ideas?
  4. Odd HD 5770 Problem - Appeared 2 days ago

    All was working fine for pretty much approaching 8 months now on my machine (Core i7, Asus P6T SE, Radeon HD 5770). The other day I was looking to sell my old nVidia GT 220 to a mate and decided to make sure that it works before selling it - I plugged it in and it booted, although my display never actually turned on. I replaced the 5770 back into the computer and now, whatever I try - change display resolution, trashed the display plists, reinstalled kexts - the display is just moved to the right! The resolution is correct - 1920x1080 - and hardware acceleration is present. Everything is still 100% except for the display which has moved to the right! I tried reconfiguring my TV as well. I'm connected via VGA through a DVI adapted that is plugged into the DVI port of the card. Thanks!
  5. Thanks Bchemist. I ended up just going back to a normal install as I didn't find that there was really enough of a difference to warrant the risk of the disk failing. Works alright now and there isn't the Time Machine crash anymore - so figure you were completely right about the RAID + TM RAID setup and it bogging the system down - good note for anyone who makes the same mistake as me. I'm still curious about the XBench scoring though - any ideas from anyone? What do all of you get? Thanks for your help again Bchemist and nice one for all the work you've done on the DSDTs for this motherboard!
  6. I just did a RAID install on this. Two things confuse me: 1) Backing up the main RAID drive (striped) to the 'Time Machine' RAID drive (both RAID volumes are on the same pair of disks) causes Time Machine to cause a Kernel Panic at 2.49GB completed. 2) XBench scores for the computer are low... I mean very low. CPU returns 155-166. Eh?? The memory component isn't brilliant either. Any connection with the 'Bus Speed = 533MHz' in System Profiler? Thanks to anyone who can help me.
  7. Thanks - extremely easy installation. Had to boot with -x the first few times though because of my graphics card (NVidia GeForce GT220) - will be typing up a guide for that soon. Thanks again, brilliant!
  8. LinkSys WMP54G v2 (UPDATE)

    For Snow Leopard, try my solution here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1304603
  9. Broadcom bcm43xx wireless driver [beta]

    SOLUTION WMP54G V2 (DEVID: 4320) under Snow Leopard on a Gigabyte EP45-DS3 running 10.6.1. 1) Follow instructions in the first post for the shell script. 2) Go to /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/Plugins/ (forgive if it's wrong, I'm doing this from memory) 3) Grab the BRCM4311 kext from there and copy it to the Desktop 4) Get Kext Utility if you haven't got it already 5) Drop the kext you copied onto your desktop onto Kext Utility 6) Wait for it to do its magic 7) Go to /System/Library/Caches and delete the kext cache (you'll need to enter your password) 8) Go to /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration and delete NetworkInterfaces.plist and the com.apple.network.interfaces.plist (again you'll need to retype password) 9) Reboot with -f -v 10) Check System Profiler/Software/Extensions to see if the BRCM kext is loaded (should be loaded twice) 11) If it isn't you've done something wrong, otherwise go to /System/Library/Extensions and delete the BRCM kext from there ONLY. Go to /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration and delete NetworkInterfaces.plist and the com.apple.network.interfaces.plist (again you'll need to retype password) 12) Switch computer off 13) Move your card into the other PCI slot 14) Boot up with -f -v, you should see that wl1 shows up along the line 15) You'll see AirPort show up on the menu bar 16) Go to System Preferences/Network and set it up there 17) Voilá, you have AirPort! Hope this helps someone, gave me a bit of a headache. P.S.: Before someone asks me why I'm copying the 4311 kext (point 10 and earlier) and essentially duplicating it. I did this because the kext wouldn't load AT ALL until it was duplicated (weird). Follow the instructions exactly and you'll be fine. Its really easy to fix this card and make it work.
  10. Hi everyone, I was once proficient in the whole OSx86 thing. Since I've been away the whole DSDT thing with Leopard came along, and of course Snow Leopard. My audio chip is an ALC889a on the above motherboard. Everything else runs fine on the computer, I just need some pointers to the appropriate kext for the motherboard. Any help please? I have not come anywhere near DSDT, didn't figure I need it. If anyone can just point me to some correct posts that would be great, I know what I'm doing for the most part but I've missed a lot since I've been on these forums last. Thanks!
  11. ALC889A problem - Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3

    One question - Installed it and everything is fine. But it clips like f*** as soon as the computer volume is >70%. Below that it's fine. Its just a if the output is very very loud. Any fix for this? Any ideas? Its an ALC889 chip on an EP45 DS3 running 10.5.7. Installed iAKTOS 10.5.5 and didn't even test this until I fully updated to .7. Obviously there's the logical work-around but I like my systems to be 100%. Many thanks P.S.: My signature is sooooo out of date, that is NOT the system I am talking about.
  12. Psystar ripped off Netkas's PC_EFI V8 without giving credits (initially, still an omission, inadvertent plagiarism), so I think the community has a right to rip off a couple of kexts that they made. What's fair is fair.

    Try http://www.cancer.gov/, it was always a good resource for me through my dad's illness. As one of the guys here said though, it is some sort of mutation of thyroid cancer. Hope that helps.
