GA-H67M-D2-B3 audio sound lost in 10.7.1

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got sound working properly with the H67M-D2-B3 motherboard using the drivers here with Lion 10.7.0. I'm using an Intel i3/2100 CPU @ 3.1gHz, 1155 socket.

 

The correct instructions are:

 

Remove any sound kexts in S/L/E and E/E, run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]->System Utilities and ->Drivers & Bootloaders->Kexts & Enablers->Audio->Realtek ALC8xx->AppleHDA Rollback. Do not delete the Extensions.mkext file from Extra. Then place GigabyteALC888b.kext and HDAEnabler.kext (both from the download link above) on your Desktop and run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to install. Reboot.

 

SysPrefs->Sound->Output will show the available choices and System Report (formely System Profiler) discloses the right devices under Hardware->Audio. Sound works perfectly, with none of the crackling or distortion of the stock installation.

 

However, running Software Update to update to Lion 10.7.1 breaks the above. (Everything else works fine). Repeating the above installation does not restore sound and SysPrefs->Sound->Output discloses no devices.

 

Does anyone have a fix for restoring sound/audio with this motherboard in 10.7.1 please?

 

Thank you.

I'm currently trying to install 10.7 on a GA-H67M-D2-B3 and am having problems. What method did you use? Once installed I will also be trying to upgrade to 10.7.1 so I will be in the same boat as you with the audio I expect.

I used Kakewalk. Try reinstalling the DSDT file using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] on your Kakewalk installation drive. Also re-run Chameleon applying it to your install drive - for some reason I had to do this to make the drive bootable. I used r1083.

Would it not be easier to just install VoodooHDA.kext as I did. Every APple update will kill this rollback etc. VoodooHDA 2.7.3 for Lion just came out. Just make sure if you use this driver to put AppleHDADisabler.kext in /S/L/E/.

 

I had to install v11 voodoo preference pane and trying to fix the Input slider to stay at lowest setting on boot. It keeps chaning to highest setting on boot, other than that with the right DSDT I have flawless audio on every apple update.

I have no problems with my EP45-UD3P rig (great motherboard!) using Voodoo; it's the H67M-D2-B3 one that has the issue. I have tried all available versions of Voodoo in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] in 10.7.1 as well as the Gigabyte kext I refer to above.

 

The H67M-D2-B3 uses the ALC888b codec, whereas the EP45-UD3P uses ALC889A codec, which is likely the cause of the issue.

Fixed it finally in 10.7.2.

 

My GA-H67M-D2-B3 is rev 1.0, and uses the ALC888b codec. (Later versions use ALC889 per Gigabyte's website).

 

I ran TonyMac's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] checking AppleHDA rollback and system utilities, copied GigabyteALC888b.kext (from Kexts.com) to Extra/Extensions, installed HDAenabler.kext on desktop and ran TonyMac's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to install. Sound works fine on reboot.

 

Great mobo at a bargain price, and I'm driving two 21" displays from the two DVI connectors on board.
