  1. Hello, I thing I've tried everything that I've read on the internet, and I'm still unable to activate QE/CI in my laptop. Before upgrading to 10.6.8 it worked, but now it doesn't anymore. My graphics card is a Nvidia 8400M GS. I tried using the GraphicsEnabler=Yes option in chameleon, with no luck. I don't know if I should use some kexts or not (I tried some with no luck), but apparently my graphics card should be supported by default. Despite not having graphical acceleration, the screen resolution is fine, but I cannot watch youtube videos or use software like iMovie. In case it helps, my computer is a Dell Vostro 1510, with a core 2 duo processor and 3gb ram. Any suggestions?
  2. I upgraded to 10.6.8 yesterday. I had to delete the sleepenabler.kext file or I would get a kernel panic. Also my wireless (broadcom) wasn't working properly (I didn't get an IP address and the network preferences menu was really slow), I solved it by using the Apple80211Monitor.bundle from 10.6.7 and placing it at /System/Library/SystemConfiguration/ (overwriting the original file). You can download it here: http://www.mediafire...770sa8ky7fd8gj3 I've been unable to activate QE/CI with my nvidia 8400M GS (it worked before upgrading), but I'm still trying. Any ideas? Everything else works fine. PS: backup everything before you try, specially your kexts!
  3. I would also like to know which is the latest successfull update that you can install in this Vostro 1510. And also.. is it possible to upgrade it to Lion? PS: I'll probably try to update / upgrade anyway in a few days, just for curiosity... .I'll let you know

    Dell Vostro 1510?

    Yes. I used this tutorial http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=191746 about a year ago, and I could install it without having any previous experience. Everything works for me except the memory card reader (which I barely use). I have the nvidia graphics card instead of the intel one though, so maybe something changes from the tutorial.
