nVidia GeForce 210 1gb DDR3

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I am running 10.7 on g41m-es2l


I bought a nVidia GeForce 210 1gb DDR3 to replace a nVidia Geforce 7300 256 because the 7300 wasnt playing youtube and wouldnt work with Q/E.


This new card is a f**king problem, too. I read on wiki HCL list that my exact card should work with graphicsenabler=no and the efistring. Right now my graphicsenabler is =yes.


How do I edit the goddamn .plist?? everytime I try to change =yes to =no and paste the custom efi string it gives me some {censored} that I dont have permission and makes a .txt file. WTF. When i find the .plist in spotlight its locked.


I looked on the forums for like 2 hours trying to figure out how to F**king fix this sh*t and I havent had any success.


Can SOMEONE please tell me how to edit the org.chameleon.boot.plist??? this is so frustrating

Most 210's should work fine with GraphicsEnabler=Yes and Nvidia Retail_256.02.25f1v1 driver. Unless you have some Asus model with AppleGraphicsPowerManagement issues...

    • SUCCESS!!! Finally all my THUNDERBOLT devices are hotpluggable!!   The solution is unbelievable, seems to work on all chipsets without using SSDT, and shifts the focus on the cause of all problems Thunderbolt: the cable THB_C!! Already in my previous post I noticed strange behavior by inserting the _DSM method in DSB2: PCIHotplugcapable Zero.
      Since then I've been trying to figure out how the XHC controller affected the Thunderbolt hotplug, until Crismac2013 suggested I disconnect the THB_C cable from the motherboard.
      Once disconnected, it was enough to add as an arbitrary inject my first Thunderbolt address (PXSX): <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>PCI THUNDERBOLT 15d3 first entry</string> <key>CustomProperties</key> <array> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>PCI-Thunderbolt</string> <key>Value</key> <integer>1</integer> </dict> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>IOName</string> <key>Value</key> <string>pci-bridge</string> </dict> </array> <key>PciAddr</key> <string>01:00.00</string> </dict> and it works!! Now I have also added my last SSDT to get PCI information on System info.
      I suspect, however, that in this way the USB-C functionality will be lost, you should do a test!
      In any case this is a huge step forward and makes it obvious that we need to work on XHCs controller to solve the problems with the hotplug with THB_C cable connected.  
    • Normal, rotational hard drives doesn't have attributes for life... (not even all ssds have it).
    • right about logs.... but in my case unpatched apfs are boot slower
    • Test the configplist, copy the folder Other in place of yours, I have filtered the kext you need to your PC ... You should extract ACPI tables from the clover GUI with F4 and post it .... Before doing so, delete all the files you have in Clover Origin ...... We try to make this PC work like a real Macbookpro...... Post Photo DCPI manager Test.zip
    • I have this kinda issue with my monitor, it started a few months ago. Every now and then it will cut out completely, Audio still plays but my monitor like resets. Does it in Windows, macOS and linux. Benq gl2450ht I think my monitor is.
