  3. Hi to all I'm a happy owner of an hp6720s on which I have installed a broadcomm bcm4311 wireless card in order to make it work out of the box with Airport Problem is that since I have updated the system to 10.6.6 (I used iAtkos s3v2 and followed the specific topic on this forum ) the system crashes randomly with a grey screen of death. Actually I do strongly believe this might have something to do with the kext of the wireless card, as at first I had been given a defective wireless card (It wasn't working at all but before getting back to the seller saying "hey man this is broken!" I had to try every possible way to make it work so I tried a lot of different kext and solutions). Now I wouldn't like to spend much time on sorting things out (as usually this thing happens when I'm connected to the net and on first impact I thought that it might have been firefox's fault or flash but yesterday it happened while I was using Libre Office) so this is the question: 1)Is there any way to get straight to what is causing the crash,a log or something similar? I've heard something about a program called crash reporter but I don't know how to use it. 2) if so, would you lend me a hand in decrypting it? (usually logs are quite difficult to understand if I remember correctly) 3) total different matter, I've noticed that when I turn on the bluetooth on the grey bar (sorry I dont know its name =) ) the bar itself start responding so slowly to every click ( as if the pc was totally busy )unless I turn it off again, but the other applications and the dock still work flawlessly, can you help me on sorting things out? I have already used onyx to clean the system. I know there's a specific thread for my pc, but as they are now "on lion" I've decided to open a new topic to make things simpler, if necessary I'll gladly post my problem there, please note that I also have opened a post in the Italian section of the forum, but no one gave me a response in two days, so here I am. Thanks in advance
  4. Ciao a tutti sono felice posssessore di un hp6720s su cui ho installato una scheda wireless broadcomm bcm4311 affinchè fosse riconosciuta da airport, il problema è che da quando ho aggiornato alla release 10.6.6 (per l'installazione originale ho usato iAtkos s3 v2 e seguito il topic specifico per il mio notebook nella sezione internazionale di InsanelyMac) il sistema si blocca sistematicamente dopo un tempo d'utilizzo variabile proponendomi la solita schermata grigia (tenere premuto il tasto di spegnimento per riavviare la macchina). Temo però che il problema sia a monte, infatti a suo tempo il mio rivenditore di fiducia mi aveva dato una scheda wireless fallata ma prima di tornare al punto vendita le ho provate tutte modificando anche alcuni kext per vedere se riuscivo a farla andare (sempre una broadcomm bcm4311). Se possibile preferirei evitare di effettuare una miriade di tentativi per individuare il problema manualmente (anche perchè sono quasi sicuro dipenda proprio dalla schedina wireless) , esiste un modo per risalire alla causa del blocco di sistema tramite un log o qualcosa del genere (mi sembra esista qualcosa chiamato crash reporter ma non so se faccia al caso mio ne dove trovarlo) potete aiutarmi a risolvere questo fastidioso problema?
  5. I'm not sure if this can be useful but I was able to make the external vga of the hp6720s fully functional, you just have to connect the vga when the pc is off, then turn it on and close the lid, the system wil load normally and once loaded you can open the lid and use the external monitor (the internal will be turned off) I'm running snow leopard 10.6.6 and my gma reference is x3100 2a02 I'm going to do some further testing... (note that before my vga plug wasn't working, even if mirroring was turned off the screen was scrambled the "usual way") I hope this was useful
  6. Hi to all, I'd like to install osx on a panasonic cf-m34 (toughbook series) equipped with a 1Ghz pentium 3 and 256mb of ram 30 Gb of hdd do you think it is possible? If so Tiger or Panther? (assuming panther is an option) Also is there a way to install tiger or panther via usb? I don't mind if it might be tricky
