at boot try GraphicsEnabler=No ...if all else fails try to boot with -x (safe mode)...you may have to add your cards id to the drivers

What method you used to install Lion??


I have the same card and got it working without doing anything. I am currently using 10.7.4 and got the card working with full acceleration.


You must try latest chimera By tonymacx86.com as your boot loader.

Yep, try lastest chameleon or Chimera. Perhaps your GPU Dev-ID wasnt listed in older chameleon.

Maybe the 2GB is rare/new and also newer bootladers (supporting graphicsenabler=yes) will fail to inject that card.

Which dev-ID your card has ? (Systemprofiler shows that)

Some of known DEV-IDs NV 440 GT of chameleon newer than 3 weeks:

0x10DE(Vendor-ID Nvidia)

0DC0 or 0DE0

The card worked great in lion 10.7.4 but after updating it to 10.7.5 i am not able to change the resolution i got full QE CI support and games are running good enough as compared to 10.7.4 but some games don't even launch because of resolution problem


i am having the same problem in 10.8 dp4


Does anyone have any idea how to fix this

    • Hello MaLd0n,   Could you please make DSDT edits for my new Skylake desktop Lenovo M910t    RunMe files: https://www96.zippyshare.com/v/5bgqAiga/file.html
        Thank you very much in advance!
    • Have you tried adjusting the Khz in midi pref pane or editing the info plist to suit your needs. that sometimes corrects weird noise behavior.
    • Hello Mald0n:

      Nice to meet you, I have created a post about my problem on High Sierra before and I was redirected to this guide by Allan.

      As mentioned in the post, I was not able to get pass the login screen at initial boot and the system could not shutdown occasionally.

      However I solve the high temperature problem when I replace the clover folder you provide on first post, currently the cpu temperature is around 5x-6x'c after 10 mins up time.

      Attached is the clover folder, ioreg as well as the send me app, thanks for your help!

      p.s. I notice that your clover boot efi is a old traditional grey apple boot logo, Is there a version of modern dark and white logo one that I could replace with? Thank you!
