This script did not work on my Dell XPS L702x with 3D Display (it read the product and vendor ID as blank),

 

But I did it manually and got it working, it is detected as LCD Display but not built-in,

 

I think I need to get the built-in monitor to get the brightness slider

HI Everyone!

 

I can't create a topic somehow.

I just replaced my LCD on MBP MID 2012 and the screen only switches on while logging in Macosx Maverick.

Can't rust a diagnose or select different boot drive prior that as screen stays black.

 

I believe the maC DOESN'T SUPPORT the driver of the screen prior Macosx.

 

Any ideas suggestions?

Hello and thanks,

 

Please give some pointers as to what to do?

May I ask your kind assistance?

 

I did all that was prescribed.

 

With SwitchResX I get the name I changed to.

 

But,

 

In About Mac still says Built-In Display.

 

I removed all the folders in /System/Library/Displays/Contents/Resources/Overrides

 

except for the one I created for this display.

 

what else needs to be configed?

 

Thanks a million!

 

Great work

The guide mentioned to make sure to put

into DSDT

 

 Make sure you have this section in dsdt gfx section

"@0,built-in",
Buffer (One)
{
0x01
},

 

can someone point to the right way?
