ASUS U30JC Need help with Display Resolution


1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a Asus U30JC notebook with the same GPU, I’ve tried almost every thing I read but still can’t get SL to recognize it properly. I am stuck with a display resolution of 1024X768 :hysterical: . I am sure there are a lot of people including my self who would really appreciate your help. Here what I see in Profiler and my Specs. I am currently running IATKOS 10.6.3, when I tried to upgrad my notebook it hung after “DMOS had arrived”. I am dual booting windows 7 64Bit using EasyBDC and Chameleon 2 rc4. Everything works except video and Wifi.

All help tips ideas will be appreciated IF someone has an idea how I can get the default resolution of 1366 x 768@60MHz


For those of you who aren’t up and running yet, here’s that I did. I tried several other bootloader but the only one that worked was iATKOS s3 v2.


to boot an i5-520M with all 2 cores active.7 (if you're running into reboot issues) your boot options would be "busratio=18". You may optionally specify "cpus=8" in addition to busratio.



In order to start the installation and to get my notebook up and running

I did not uncheck the default options.

Additionally selected these options

1) Modified Kernels “qoopz 10.3.0”

2) Bootloader Options “Graphics Enabler”


4) PS/2 “Voodoo PS/2”

5) Enablers “NVEnabler”

6) CPU Power Management “Voodoo Power”

7) Laptop Hardware “Voodoo Battery”

8) Laptop Hardware “Card Reader".


1. Post installation: Busratio

Thanks to BountyX and wikipedia, we have these values in a nice table. Just find your CPU type.

under Voodoo 9 So, for example, to boot an i5-520M with all 2 cores active.7 (if you're running into reboot issues) your boot options would be "busratio=18". You may optionally specify "cpus=8" in addition to busratio.


To make this permanent, you have to edit a string file in com.apple.Boot.plist . To edit open up a terminal and type:



sudo pico /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist


and find the following string:



<key>Kernel Flags</key>



Change to (change busratio value to match your i5 version):



<key>Kernel Flags</key>




A Big Thanks
