Geforce 9300 Black Screen, Software Support Only

Similar issue that many are having, black screen after the apple logo disappears...


I installed Mountain Lion vanilla but to get it to install I had to delete the S/L/E/NVD*.kext files to do the install on software graphics support, otherwise it would go to a black screen when loading the installer. Installed fine and is working fine but I'm unable to get graphics hardware support. Here are the things I've tried:

  • Official 10.8.0 NVD*.kext's
  • DP3 NVD*.kext's
  • Modify both the above with my Vendor & Device ID.
  • GraphicsEnabler=ON&OFF
  • NVEnabler 64.kext

With all the above attempts I still get a black screen after the apple logo. If I reinstall the NVD*.kext files that were in the S/L/E folder after 10.8.0 installation I am able to regain software graphics support... the kext files don't have an info.plist in them, they're more or less empty containers. In 10.7.4 all I had to have was the NVEnabler64.kext but not anymore... Any ideas?


Mobo: Abit P5N7A-vm

Hi. I am having the same problem. As this post is old have you managed to find a solution. Have been trying to install 10.8.2 on P5N7A-VM for 2 days now. I am also using the integrated graphics card Geforce 9300. I can hear sound and everything working in the background just have a blank screen.
