hello to all, I've been searching through the forums for a clear answer on how to get the 4570 to work on my amd notebook, i havent found a single clear answer, if anybody would like to tell me if its even possible to get it to work.

 

i even tried somethin similar to this what the guy did in this link:

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...53495&st=40

 

even though that was meant for snow leopard but im trying to get it to work on leopard.

but still could not get it to work.

 

if anyone has been successful at getting a 4570 to work at all, please let me know, or let us know, im sure theres more ppl out there that would like this working.

 

thanks.

The simple answer is as follows:

 

 

HD4570 uses LVDS output which is not supported. The ATIFramebuffer.kext doesn't support LVDS for this card, in other words, it works using apple Frame Buffer without any acceleration on hardware. 

 

Not supported.

Well is there a simple way of just changing the resolution at least?

 

can someone tell me exactly how to do that, in a simple step by step way, thanks.
