  1. I downloaded a kext from kexts.com (applehda.kext) which included instructions for adding the hdef settings for your DSDT file and everything seems to works fine. But when i try to dissasemble and look at the plist files it it doesn't look anything like the details i have for my onboard soundcard. Attached is a codec dump of my soundcard - the bytes flipped and the codec svg file - can someone possibly explain to me how i get all this info working or advise where there is a good guide to do this. I have checked the forums and only come across a 2009 guide and lots of conflicting information as the kext no longer contains half of the kexts that are in the guides i.e. the AppleHDAPlatformDriver Also attached applehda that i am using that works I really want to learn how it all works! btw i have looked at the following guides: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=149128 http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=137188 http://www.scribd.com/doc/38415312/AppleHDA-Guide http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?...ic=465&st=0 Archive.zip Working_AppleHDA.kext.zip
  2. Problem getting geforce 320m into DSDT file.....

    Thanks for having a go for me and taking the time to do it - unfortunately not working with DSDT, i will stick with graphicsenabler as it does the job. I am just trying to learn how to modify, but it's harder than it looks! As an afterthough - I just pulled out the injection from PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) and converted from hex to a plist and got the information below. I will convert the Hex data to string and have a play around later using the link below: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=252525 My Conclusion: The DSDT You posted was fine checked it against the output from PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) when even trying to add it to com.apple.Boot.plist same thing happened as when changing to graphicsenabler=no Looks like Chameleon does some pretty good injecting that DSDT or injecting a hex string can compete with. BTW Thanks - you have managed to fix my sleep and restart without me needing the kexts!
  3. Problem getting geforce 320m into DSDT file.....

    Still no joy with graphicsenabler=No - but with graphics enabler set to yes, in the system profile under pci cards, instead of there being 2 like there was i my earlier screenshots, it now shows as the image below: Also can you explain what you mean by set the id in HDEF as i originally added the HDEF (changed from AZAL) to get my soundcard recognised via AppleHDA
  4. Problem getting geforce 320m into DSDT file.....

    Graphicsenabler=Yes always works. Thats why i'm trying to do in DSDT so i can remove I will test shortly
  5. Problem getting geforce 320m into DSDT file.....

    To be honest i dont have a clue - I just entered it in what i thought was the right place. I can get the DSDT From windows if thats any better? As i said i followed a couple of guides and they all seemed to suggest at the Device (PCI......... and enter code at GFX0 etc - the fact that my laptop has built in Graphics and the DSDT shows a VGA and a VGA1 and a GFX0 makes it all the more confusing for me. I just tested and unfortunately still doesnt work when graphicsenabler is removed. I just logged into Windows and got a fresh DSDT (completely unmodified and have booted Mac system using it. Attached is the send_me.zip for it. send_me.zip
  6. UPDATED 20.12. GenericBrightness.kext

    Hi, Thanks - worked with the 2nd method with minimal DSDT Edit - tried with the 1st method but it didnt work.
  7. Problem getting geforce 320m into DSDT file.....

    Hey great, Thanks. I have attached two DSDT Files and also my ioreg which shows the config with graphicsenabler being used. I did some research today but not sure if this link might be helpful (it was a bit too vague for me to get my head round) http://forum.osx86.org.pl/topics27/acer-5741-dsdt-vt3858.htm (was in polish lol) From looking at other forums i also think that it might be in the wrong place or if it's right the VGA and VGA1 play some part. BTW My laptop is an Acer 5741g if that helps with an built into the motherboard Geforce GT 320M - let me know if you need anymore information. Archive.zip send_me.zip ioreg.rtf
  8. Problem getting geforce 320m into DSDT file.....

    I shall try to elaborate more - my DSDT file as well as havung device (pci) also has vga and vga1 as a device and also gfx so i think somejow i am putting in the details incorrectly. If it helps i can attach my DSDT Is there a way to reverse engineer the chameleon efi injecton (which enables my card) to see where i need to enter the data into my DSDT file?
  9. Problem getting geforce 320m into DSDT file.....

    I'll try to explain a little better - the laptop has an onboard (built in) Geforce 320M graphics card. I found it in my DSDT under PEGP and added it there. I have attached 3 screenshots below of what is now showing in my properties for the card with the DSDT edit. As i said, unfortunately it still doesnt work with GraphicsEnabler=No so i am not sure why not if it is showing in the profiler. Also, can someone advise how to get rid of the trailing ,,,, comma's (not sure why they are on there as i checked my DSDT file)
  10. .....and working with graphicsenabler removed from com.apple.Boot.plist Firstly i am using Lion 10.7 everything pretty much works Hi, I know this is supported anyway (with graphicsenabler=yes) but I have tried several ways to add the card to my DSDT file 1) The Nvidia laptop dsdt hack in DSDTSE and also 2) http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/01/adv...a-graphics.html I managed to get the card to show in system profile but it will not work when graphicsenabler is then set to no and the system goes to VGA mode. I am trying to make my machine as vanilla as possible but i cant seem to be able to get this bit to work My laptop is an Acer 5741g btw.
  11. P5Q & 10.6.1 Retail

    Thanks, works perfectly on my P5Q deluxe - with nvidia 260 gtx g card - the only things i changed were: I modified the boot.plist with my efi string for my graphics card. It seemed to take a very long time to install though - also when the install got to the end in said that it could not install properly... i just ignored and rebooted.
  12. crazy broken looking lcd upon boot.

    I Get exactly the same problem. The only thing i do - is reboot about 10-20 times, sometimes it will work ok after 1 reboot, sometimes more. It is to do with the graphics card (GMA965) . I have tried numerous board suggestions, but to no avail. Half the screen goes white the other half black if left after it looks smashed.....
  13. Change the settings in BIOS - the ACPI setting (to disabled) If installing XP - reboot use gparted and set active?
  14. [Development]-Broadcom 4311 Fix

    The only fix i needed was to cover pin 20 on my card, that seemed to do the trick - OSX recognised my card but i was unable to switch it on in the OS due to a soft-switch, now i can turn in on and off in the OS. Thanks guys for info.
