The Dell Studio 1558 Thread

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is to differentiate from the 1557 thread (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=218706).


I have decided to work on this as people have their 5xxx series mobilities to work now.


My personal machine is as follows:


Intel Core i7 720-QM

8GB DDR3 RAM 1333MHz


IDT audio

Radeon 5470 1GB

dell 1520 wifi

Realtek 8168D LAN


Works - In Progress - Does not work


Right now it does work and I will momentarily do a clean install to attempt the perfection of the graphics. the wifis currently do not work and will be handled currently by a ralink usb stick.


To get the sound working, follow instructions in the 1557 thread and the same goes for the LAN.


I will be reporting back later with the progress on the graphics and will post instructions when/if it will work. other users have had success with mobility 5000 series and one user, fayens, has his 5470 working fine, albeit with errors in transparancy on menubar. i will try to fix that
