  1. I have a Logitech C910 HD webcam. It is detected, microphone is working, but screen on any video capture program is black. It does work with QuickTime to capture video on Medium picture setting but it is totally unusably. (worse than a slide show). I haven't tested on many apps but it does work PERFECTLY! with Apple's Facetime beta. But what I did notice when using with Facetime is that... it must be GPU accelerated as I can hear the fan spin up when using Facetime.(beta) So what is special about Facetime that it works? Maybe it is program based ? Latest Skype 5.0 beta does not work either.
  2. this is the exact model i have, http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/p...101&pid=219
  3. i am using a saphire 4890 dual dvi with dual display, dell 24" & viewsonic 20" rotated. both displayers were detected out of the box for me
  4. I have OSX 10.6.2 w/ATi Radeon 4890 (i have transparency & DVD player doesn't error, whatever that means) installed to my eSATA HDD plugged into Gigabyte's SATA port AHCI mode. All works fine for me & I haven't done anything different. Also, my BIOS isn't setup like lifehackers guide but setup to how I always had it, just HDD's are AHCI.
  5. Hello. Few days ago I misplaced my bag which had my Macbook Pro and was no where to be found when I returned after few minutes. I do not have any of those tracking software installed in my macbook so I won't be able to track it when it connects to internet. My most important question is... if the person who stole my macbook totally wipes out hdd (partition+format) and reinstalls OSX, is there any chance that I can still track my macbook by either MAC address of the airport and/or serial number/ hardware id? Wouldn't Apple be able to identify those informations if the theif does a osx update or something? or Apple does not correct/check any of those informations? Any advices would be helpful. Thank you.
  6. Have you built this system just for OSX? Or have you had Windows or other operating system running on this hardware? Maybe you should do some stability test to make sure your hardwares are working properly first. Hardware diagnostic/stability test first than you'll know it maybe a software related issue and not some faulty hardware issue. Why no install a trusty?? MS WINDOWS and do some stability test non stop for about 24 hours or so and report back. If you have not done so. Enjoy.
  7. For those who are getting this so called " "verifying DMI Pool Data". So you have successfully booted from the USB installer? Than completed the installation of OSX? Now you try to boot from the installation on your HDD and you get this " "verifying DMI Pool Data". ??? Is that what you are saying? or Are you saying you get "verifying DMI Pool Data" when booting off the prepared USB drive?
  8. Just wondering... How can check if QE/CI & OpenCL is working on my ATi Radeon 4890 1024MB PCIe ? Following is what is shown in my Profiler... ATI Radeon 4890 Series: Chipset Model: ATI Radeon 4890 Series Type: GPU Bus: PCIe Slot: Slot-1 PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 1024 MB Vendor: ATI (0x1002) Device ID: 0x9460 Revision ID: 0x0000 ROM Revision: 113-B7710C-176 EFI Driver Version: 01.00.318 Displays: DELL 2407WFP: Resolution: 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888) Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Rotation: Supported VX2025wm: Resolution: 1050 x 1680 @ 60 Hz Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888) Mirror: Off Online: Yes Rotation: 90
  9. press any key to get more boot options... now you see hdd icons, move to your SL boot drive and just click down arrow with keyboard and you'll see preset options.
  10. Does EP45UD3P%20Snow%20Leopard%20v2.zip contain CMOS FIX aswell ?
  11. Ok... With my BIOS, I have not really changed anything other than keeping to AHCI. But my time in BIOS is being kept changing. Is there a fix to this ?
  12. Hello. Since I had same hardwares as guide from LifeHackers I decided to give OSX a try. My hardwares are as follow... Gigabyte EP45-UD3P Revision 1.1 Bios F9? Intel Q6600 @ 3GHz (About this Mac detect as Quad Core Intel Xeon) 2x2GB DDR2 800MHz Bunch of Serial ATA HDDs Samsung DVDRW SATA ATi Radeon 4890 1GB PCIe SnowLeopard installed to my test HDD (2.5" 5400RPM 20GB) plugged into Gigabyte's SerialATA port. Built the USB drive with OSX 10.6 + Stell's Installer v2 Everything seems to be working on first try. I guess I am not getting a proper use from the ATi Radeon as I can't even play YouTube HD videos full screen smoothly. I decided to test a YouTube HD video I have downloaded with the QuickTime player that is included with Snow Leopard and full screen playback is very choppy. Yet using QuickTime 7 to playback same video is smooth on full screen. Also, I have a dual display setup. 24" as main & 20" as secondary in portrait mode. Problem is there is no rotation option available under display for me to rotate my secondary display. Finally, I didn't even bother changing any of my BIOS settings other than making sure all serial ata port are set to AHCI.
