Blue screen when monitor inputs changed

Recommended Posts

10.5.5 Vanilla kernel with NVDarwin 1.1 installed for an 8600GT 256. I have a Benq G2400W connected to my hackintosh via DVI and to my Vista box via HDMI. Mouse and keyboard via KVM switch. Everythings working great with the only problem being:

 

When I use the monitor to change inputs (e.g. from DVI to HDMI and then back to DVI) the hackintosh shows a pale blue screen. I've had to resort to the mouse corner sleep display fix to overcome this.

 

Is there a proper fix for this so that the screen doesnt get stuck at blue? Or is this a known problem? Just wondering if there's a kext I'm missing or something I need to change in the gfx drivers to prevent this from happening.

 

Thanks.

I have the same problem whenever I try to change resolution...

even when you press esc to revert back between thte 15seconds it won't come back.

If you go to sleep and come back the display works again... strange

I also have the same problems. And it is exhausted the possibilities. I tried everything: EFI-Studio/String, NVinject, NVinstaller, NVkushInstaller, XDarwin, ... ... That last (XDarwin) that it was great results, as well as EFI inject.

 

As for NVCAP, I can not believe that this is really the problem. Right after I have installed Windows only to extract the ROM (NVFlash), the problem still persists!

I have a blue screen when i change display resolution. When I try "OpenGL Extensions Viewer" application and set another resolution\frequency for test (for example 1280*1024 60hz and not in fullscreen mode) - it's works (see the size of window, original resolution was 1024*786 75 hz). But when i select "fullscreen mode" for test.....i have a black screen (like i have when starts games like zuma and others, where resolution also changes for play). reset....

 

what the problem?

Exactly! The boot option "-f" recreate the system Mac extensions cache. What are those files that the hackers guide us to exclude (/System/Library/Extensions.mkext and /System/Library/Extensions/Caches/com.apple.kext.info) to reflect changes in the injectors / EFI-String.
