Black Border Around Screen


1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts



I have a problem.


There is a black border around my screen.

(For the windows users out there, sometimes you get this black border also if you haven't installed the video card drivers yet.)


I tried a couple of things.


- "Graphics Mode"="1920x1200x32"

- Reinstall.

- Install the 4x0 - 580 kext but I need Mac OS X 10.6.5 or higher for that. (I'm at 10.5.2 right now)


I'm using the Kalyway 10.5.2 distro.


if I select any nvidia drivers in the customize option screen while installing Mac OS X it gives me what I suspect is a Kernel Panic (a grey screen scrolls down that tells me to reboot while it's booting Mac OS X)


Also I can't change my resolution in the display settings when i'm logged into the Mac cause it only displays 1 useable resolution...


My Sound works.

Internet works. (Typing this from the Black Border machine :P)


My Specs:


MOBO: Asus P5K Pro

CPU: Intel Core2Quad Q6600 @ 2.4ghz

GPU: Nvidia Gigabyte GTX470

RAM: 4gb 667 mhz (something something xD)


If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know :(
