    Acer Aspire 8943G DSDT Help

    Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 8943G (laptop, Core i5 430m, 5650m) which needs a DSDT edit. Mainly, I need the EDID injected into the DSDT (screen pickup is bad, 1/3 boots maybe). However, sleep isn't working, the touchpad/keyboard doesn't work without VoodooPS2, and the audio doesn't work without VoodooHDA. The last two are more minor things, but the laptop has a 5.1 surround system built in, but only two of the speakers are working. Also, there is a high pitched noise all the time, and the speakers make a sound almost like they're blowing when the system boots. Anyways, I'm not sure how much of this can be solved by a DSDT edit, but is someone is willing to try I would be very grateful. P.S. I downloaded "runme.app" (or something like that) that was posted in another topic, and it gave me a kp. What can I do? Thank you EDID.rtf

    5650m 100%... I'm so close!

    Thank you for the offer, but it may not be needed. Long story short, I accidentally didn't enter any framebuffer at all one boot, and lo and behold, the graphics seemed to work. However, it seems that the EDID pickup is still bad, even though I have followed This guide. I have full resolution all the time (1080p on LVDS), but most of the time the screen is distorted, jagged for lack of better word. I will post a screenshot when I can. Would injecting the EDID into the DSDT help with my problem? Also, sorry for taking so long to reply, I've been rather busy this last while

    Thank you all for the replies. I am assuming that QE/CI is working, as I can play minecraft (I know, I'm a very productive person). However, the dashboard "ripple" effect isn't working. Can anyone confirm?

    I have already added that line, but I will try putting the plist in the folder you suggested. Thank you Edit: It appears that didn't work I've also tried adding "Graphics Mode" = "1920x1080x32@60" in there, no difference :/

    I've followed a multitude of guides recently, all of which helped me to get where I am now. Let me explain: System: Acer Aspire 8943G CPU: i5 430m Memory: 4GBs of DDR3 Graphics: ATi 5650m Snow Leopard 10.8 - Chimera (The guides say to use Kably's, but it is aging, and Chimera has it's code in it anyways) I have everything working great, except for the graphics. It displays perfect, 1080p with QE/CI, but only when I manually enter "AtiConfig"="Eulemur" at boot (The exact same key/string is in the boot.plist) If I don't enter that, everything on the display is distorted, jagged if you will. (Text is just barely readable) Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hey, I'm Quinn. I want to try to put Mac OS on my laptop, mainly because my teachers are bitching at me because I don't have a Mac. I want to show them that my 18.4' lappy can take on their Macs, on their own turf, and for cheaper
