  1. I just picked up one of those $298 Compaq laptops from Walmart (Compaq Presario CQ60-419WM). Being a Mac Guy, I'd love to put OS X on this if possible. Although I've search extensively, I haven't been able to find any kext info on its nVidia nForce Chipset. Without this kext, I can't even boot OS X. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance, Todd ==SPECS==Compaq Presario 15.6" CQ60-419WM Laptop AMD Sempron SI-42 Processor 3GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 800MHz NVIDIA nForce MCP77MV Chipset NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G Graphics Driver 160 GB Hard Drive SATA Conexant HDAUDIO Soft Data Fax Modem with SmartCP Conexant High-Definition SmartAudio 221 Driver version Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g Adapter ========
  2. [INSTALLING] 10.5.4 on a Lenovo S10

    I currently have everything working except for auto fan and ethernet. Sleep works, sound works, brightness works. Volume and brightness keys work. Battery display works. I was able to get additional info at s10lenovo.com. Let me research my kexts and I'll let you know what I used to get all of this working. As for the fan, its speed is set during bootup by the bios. If I've been using the system for a while and it gets hot, if I reboot the fan will kick on high and stay that way until I restart again. As for the lockup on shutdown after sleeping, I'm pretty sure I'm having the same problem. Sometimes it will restart and sometimes not. I never made the connection between sleep before, but it makes sense.
  3. EEEPC 1000H ALC269 Driver (MSI WIND)

    Your eeePC 1000h and Lenovo S10 (ALC269) can now have sound!! Follow this link for the solution. Worked like a charm on my Lenovo S10. http://ipis-osx.wikidot.com/forum/t-101853...s-ugly-stop-gap
  4. [INSTALLING] 10.5.4 on a Lenovo S10

    I installed msiwindosx. Installed the wifi driver. updated to 10.5.5 then used kext helper to install miglo's kexts which are available here ---> http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=8fbb9d9...2db6fb9a8902bda Post #1 pretty much sums up the process. [update] After installing the kexts, be sure to repair your permissions and upon the first reboot, hit F8 at the Darwin prompt, type -F, hit enter. Everything should work nicely afterward.
  5. [INSTALLING] 10.5.4 on a Lenovo S10

    Yes. I'm typing this on my S10 and I can hear the fan running.
  6. [INSTALLING] 10.5.4 on a Lenovo S10

    Just wanted folks to know that the install is super simple. I used the msiwindosx.iso (DVD) to install. After installation was completed, I applied kext for wifi. I did software update to 10.5.5. Then installed all of the kexts that miglo put together. Every thing is working perfectly with the exception of sound (and LAN I guess). Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this effort. My new S10 is exactly what I was looking for. :censored2:
  7. This where I know just enough to be dangerous. My system profiler never showed any audio install. Even though it worked perfectly and showed all of the correct options in the audio control panel. So, I installed your AppleHDA and things showed up, but not the long list like you have. So then I removed the audio settings from my EFI and removed a couple of audio KEXT files. Then it worked! But... I later tried a couple of the other KEXT files you supplied and it broke again. Then I had no sound. I replaced the audio files I had deleted. I had sound, but now the display in SysProf was messed up. So then I tried to go back to all of my original KEXTs and... ... now my system won't even boot. I get a kernel panic shortly after Darwin loads. Good thing I have an image of a clean install. Sooner or later I'm going to learn to leave well enough alone.
  8. Hopefully, you didn't use "Software Update" to upgrade to 10.5.3. After backing up you extensions folder, you need to do this... http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&...st&p=764831 That information is available on a large number of postings. Hopefully your future searches will provide you with better results. Depending on how you did the install, you may need to start from scratch. I can confirm that by following the above instructions that 10.5.3 works great (except for shutdown, restart, and sleep) If you've got 10.5.2 installed and working perfectly, then I would recommend waiting for 2-3 weeks until 10.5.4 comes out. If you really want 10.5.3, then Kalyway's updater is the simplest way to go. But keep in mind, you will need to install new video drivers (NVkush) and if you are trying to keep your system kernel vanilla, you will loose shutdown, sleep, and reboot functionality. Good luck.
  9. I think that there must be another issue because everything I have shows the memory correctly.
  10. I'm not sure why you would say that. Leopard is a 64bit OS. It can handle well above 8GB of RAM. My Hacintosh reports its 8GB RAM accurately and it works fine. My work Mac Pro uses 6GB of RAM and is utilizing it without problem. Only a 32bit OS can not use more than 4GB of RAM. That would include XP and the 32bit version of Vista.
  11. For me, everything works except for dependable sleep, restart, and shutdown. These items were broken with the 10.5.3 update. I'm going to try to write a tutorial specifically for the GA-P35-DS4 board. I've used other people's "easy patches" for the variations of the GA boards but found that some caused more problems than fixes. I've narrowed KEXTs down to about 10 that need to be replaced/added in order to have a pretty flawless system.
  12. Diablo II crashing

    I'm having the same problem. I have a MBP and just built my first hacintosh. Looking at the crash report makes me think the game is trying to play using the Rosetta Engine. Does that work for us? I'll do some researching on that. Basically I just wanted you to know that its not just you who is having this issue.
  13. Hello All, Just wanted to give a big THANKS to everyone for their help. Special thanks to PCWIZ, LTL, Donw35, agrafuese, and dublove. No one has helped me personally, but by reviewing this (and a few other) threads, I was able to get a perfectly working Leopard 10.5.3 install on a GA-EP35-DS4 system (see sig.). Shut down is working fine. The only items not working are: Sleep works, but some of my cards (wifi) don't come back from their nap. Restart never 'restarts' but that's why we have a reset switch. Anyway, thanks again for your time and dedication to this forum. You knowledge is both priceless and appreciated. I can only hope to return the favor by helping others as you've helped me. Cheers!
  14. Blue Screen Hang

    ok, i just want to clarity... did you turn off "monitor sleeping" or "system sleeping" or both? Also, does your LCD monitor have a USB port and is that plugged into your machine as well? Is this happening after you machine has booted to the desktop or during the boot process? Our systems are pretty similar so as long as this isn't a defective monitor issue, we should be able to figure this out.
  15. Actually, don't erase the GeForce or the NVDANV**Hal files unless you do NOT have an nVidia card. The 2 GeForce files are required for nVidia cards. The NVInject, NVkush, and natit files can be deleted to get you to a basic, lo-res screen. Are you waiting long enough for it to boot? I was having a long booting issue. It was taking my machine 7-10mins to boot. It would get stuck at a black screen then finely boot and run perfectly. I discovered that the system was getting hung up on one of my USB devices. Try booting without any plugged in and see what happens. Also, when ever you have a question, please put your system specs. It can help us to solve your problem faster.
