  1. I'm two weeks in with my install now and all seems well. But i would like to be able to adjust the screen brightness, especially as it wakes on max brightness. Does anybody have any ideas? Im running the 3d version of GT555m i've tried a program that adds a adjustment slider to the top bar but it didn't work.
  2. Update i re-installed and all is working extremely well! i now see a geekbench score of 10205 (32 bit) vs 7299 (32 bit) it say's in windows 7! Also benchmarked with nova bench and scored 1102 in Mac OS vs 994 in windows 7. So i'm now more than happy and off to now make a back up. Only one thing left i don't seem to have much luck with is understanding which windows it reopens at start up and which one's it doesn't? regardless to weather i tick the box or not! Update 2/ noticed if i put machine to sleep then wake it, the screen brightness goes up too max (can't find any way to adjust it?), and the two rear usb ports turn off? Other than that have now loaded my screen colour profile, so all's looking good and would recommend any one gives it try (patience & plenty of time required!).
  3. I'm with the previous poster and would like to thank Mahesh for his excellent guide, I'm now up and running with graphics 1920 x 1080 (GT 555m & 3d screen) and sound. Wi-fi care of one of those £5.00 Nano usb n-type adaptors. However i've a couple of issues if any now can help? 1/ My geekbit score seems low 7760? 2/ I get a pop from the speakers as OS starts up? not worried about it just wondered if everyone else got the same? 3/ Whilst i get the full res and system info reports as: Chipset Model: GeForce GT 555M Type: GPU Bus: PCIe Slot: Slot-1 PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 3072 MB Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de) Device ID: 0x0dcd Revision ID: 0x00a1 ROM Revision: my graphics don't seem too smooth, a good example would be maximising a browser window seems rather jerky?? i'm pretty sure i've removed all unwanted graphics kexts. 4/ I did manage to create my own DSDT sucessfully, however installing broke my sound? Any help would be greatly received. Full specs as below. i7 2820QM, 8GB RAM, nVidia GT 555m 3d 1920x1080 display, OCX vertex II 120GB SSD, A12 BIOS. Chris
