    Laptop Goes Black on Battery Power

    Well, I think I got it sorted. Not sure if there was a conflict between VoodooBattery and my graphics or what, but using AppleACPIBatteryManager seems to have done the trick, after deleting VoodooBattery. Not 100% sure that's the fix, but it seems to be working. Hope that helps someone else at some point.
  2. So I installed OSX using the 10.6.3 retail CD and the nawcom boot CD. Most things are working well, just noticed a big problem. When I boot on A/C power, no problems. When I boot using battery power, I can get to the desktop, and just when battery icon in the top right corner loads, the whole screen goes black, almost like it's sleeping - but the fans are still on. It seems like the screen is trying to dim, but since I turned off the "dim screen on battery power" option, that doesn't make sense. If I boot with A/C power, then unplug it to switch to battery power, the same things happens. If I boot with the nawcom boot CD on battery power, I can get to the OSX desktop, no problems. I installed VoodooBattery, VoodooPower, but I'm stuck. I did check out the IORegistryExplorer and it says System-Type is 02. I will say I had to delete the sleepenabler.kext, as that gives me KPs. I'd love to get sleep working too, but the battery issue is far more important. Thanks!

    iATKOS S3 V2 Kernel Panic

    I'm installing iATKOS S3 V2 on my HP DV2000t. Specs are as follows: - Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T5300(1.73GHz/2MB L2Cache) - 14.1" WXGA BrightView Widescreen (1280x800) - 128MB NVIDIA® GeForce® Go 7200 - LightScribe Super Multi 8X DVD+/-RW w/Double Layer - Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network w/Bluetooth - 4GB RAM - 320 GB HD (Partitioned 50 GB for this, drive is clean) I try to install this, and get a Panic (cpu 0 caller 0x2a9e5c): Kernel Trap at 0x48c84fcd, type 14= page fault, registers: Debugger called: <panic> Backtrace (CPU 0), frame: Return Address (4 Potential Args on stack) Is that enough info or do I need to post a pic? I can if necessary. Thanks!
  4. I'm very new to this. I read through forums for about a week before attempting any of this, so I'm kind of stuck now (and yes, I have searched). I have an HP DV2000t CTO from 2007 that I wanted to put OSX and Windows 7 on. So far, I've installed OSX but the wifi isn't working, and that's my first goal. According to my purchase info, my DV2000t CTO has the following: - Intel® Core 2 Duo T5300(1.73GHz/2MB L2Cache) - 14.1" WXGA BrightView Widescreen (1280x800) - 128MB NVIDIA® GeForce® Go 7200 - LightScribe Super Multi 8X DVD+/-RW w/Double Layer - Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network w/Bluetooth I upgraded to 4GB of RAM a while ago, and added a 320GB drive for this project. I installed iDeneb 10.5.7. I found kexts from Project: Camphor: Download links and I installed them using Kext Helper B7, as well as put them in the /System/Library/Extensions folder. Is that the right way to do it? The bluetooth DOES work (seems somewhat intermittent though, as it just started working a moment ago. I've done tons messing with the switch, kexts, and rebooting many times) and the wireless/blueooth light does glow blue. However if I look at "Network -> Airport Card" it says "no information found". As a side point, if the wireless switch is set to "off" when I boot and then I turn it on - the mouse moves SLOOOOOOOOWLY and erratically. The only way to fix it (I've found so far) is to reboot. So, any advice on how to get the wireless working? I am willing to try any suggestions made, and really, REALLY appreciate the advice. Seems I'm on the right track if the blueooth works, right? Side question - my video card shows as "not supported" by Quartz Extreme. Any advice on that one? I'd really like to use iMovie. Thanks!!
