Hi there! Last weekend I installed Mac OS X 10.6.6i (Hazard) on my Acer Aspire 5741G. So after changing busratio to 17 and GraphicsEnable to yes. Almost everything was working fine except sound. I don't know which kext or driver should I install. My laptop:

Motherboard: Intel HM55

CPU: Intel Core i5-430M

GPU: GeForce GT 320M

Sound: Intel High Definition Audio <- that's all I know.

 

So in [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] there is couple driver, when I first time installed all of them, sound doesn't work. Now I don't know what to do to have sound.

Boot up in a Linux Live CD like Ubuntu, then open a Terminal and show us the output of

lspci

lsusb

 

That should show your audio chipset as well as a bunch of other pertinent information that will help you decide which audio kext to use. Hope this helps.

You have to know what is your hardware details, such as hardware id .

 

use lspci command, you download it first at this link

 

install it, and you must go to terminal or x11 application, you can search it in utility inside applications on finder.

 

open terminal

 

type : " lspci -nn " without quote, press return

 

if you want to save it, you can simply type "lspci -nn >> myhardwareinfo.txt

 

and it will save in your home folder.

 

after that, try search your hardware id to match in google or also you can search in this insanelymac forum.

 

try latest [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] v.3.3 looks like they have fix HDA in many types.

 

Full list of changes:

 

Replaced ElliottForceLegacyRTC with LegacyAppleRTC in EasyBeastRenamed all HDAEnablers to include the codec it enables. So there is now HDAEnabler888, HDAEnabler888b, HDAEnabler889, HDAEnabler889a and HDAEnabler892.Added to Customization -> Boot Options -> Chameleon Instant Menu. Adds Instant Menu=Yes or replaces Timeout=n in /Extra/com.apple.boot.plist

Hope it helps you out :rolleyes:

Thanks, I used lspci and found two audio devices. First is Intel High Definition Audio Chipset / 3100 and second is nvidia chipset (but this is bout my graphics card). And also I was trying [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and I tried all HDA audio like this. Install one version, restart, check sound, delete kext and install next. I tried every of [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and still nothing. When I Installed newest version there was loud hum. So that's all I do and still nothing. Now I'm trying to find another solution. And one more, in most of VodooHDA enablers there was just HDMI in my output devices, in other kexts there wasn't any.
