How I fixed my x1300 (AGP) blue screen and pointer problem

I hope this fix works for other people. I can't take credit, I got the hint from here dmtien here - http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...106883&st=0

 

I'm running iPC 10.5.6, I've been banging away at this ALL day, an actually had been pounding on it since 10.4.6 to be honest. Anyway this is what I did.

 

I did a clean install (I really don't think the distro you use matters) including AGPGart and no other video drivers.

 

This gave me a plain system, 1024x728 showing an unknown AGP video card.

 

I went into Desktop and Screen Saver and set a hot corner for "sleep display"

 

Installed the ATI Auto version of Natit located here - http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?act...ost&id=5877

 

Rebooted, got the blue screen and pointer. I put the mouse into the sleep display hot corner, waited a second as the display went to sleep. Moved the mouse back out, and whamo there was the desktop, with full res/QE/CI support

 

Hope it works for you as well! Thanks to dmtien for the hint

 

Also, seems like if you switch res's you need to put the monitor back into sleep mode.

Works for me! Did take a bit of time to respond though, but maybe that's just the crappy performance I've been getting. Anyway, no more crappy mouse trailing artifacts! :)
