I am asking you with a great request for help with a problem I can not deal with.
I hope I have chosen a good section on this topic
I have been using my Hackintosh for some time now
it does not cause me any more problems except for the one that irritates me
the system does not recognize my monitor and detects it as a
monitor monitor VGA
13,9'' (800 x 600)
Gigabyte GeForce 9600 GT 512 MB
My monitor model: LG Flatron W2243S
As you can see in the attached picture, the system does not recognize the monitor as a built-in screen
My main problem is that when the screen resolution is set to 1920x1080, black bars appear on the sides of the screen
It is not very comfortable, that's why I would like to change it and make the image look the whole width of the monitor
The monitor is connected to the graphics card with an adapter from the VGA connector to the DVI connector
this is my conifig.plist
I hope that I described my problem in a comprehensible way, thank you very much for your help
I am attempting to install Sierra 10.12.6 on a rather odd computer, a Microsoft Surface Studio. It is essentially a laptop with a 4.5K screen strapped on. I have the install done, but the internal (or external? I don't know how it is connected) display and the video card are not matching up once I enable the Web drivers.
I've attached two sets of files: one without Web drivers being enabled, and a second with Web drivers. Also attached are the dumped ACPI files in origin, as well as the EDID information from Windows with and without the monitor driver being installed, IOregs, complete Clover folders, and various other items. Let me know if you need something else.
Without web drivers enabled the built-in display works, but of course has no acceleration. It allows me to select between two valid resolutions (full 4.5K and 2.25K).
With web drivers enabled, I get a black screen (NvidiaFixup, plus manual editing of AGDP already done). I can remote in and I see the card as not recognized, and no valid display.
I've flailed about a bit and manually added some device properties, EDID, as well as NVCAP, loaded a different ROM, but all have met with no success.
I have a Mac Mini 2006 (upgraded) with Intel GMA950 graphics, running MLPostFactor 10.8.5. It is connected to an ASUS VS197 LCD panel using DVI-D. This is natively a 1366x768 panel that is recognized and works fine.
However, the other choices for resolution are 4:3 800x600 and 1024x768, and then the oddballs 832x624 and 1360x768. None of these are useful as a low-resolution widescreen for gaming or watching DVD content. Specifically I want to get access to 848x480 or 854x480, and also 1024x576. SwitchResX makes these choices available, but it doesn't work with a "full screen" game, presumably because the game directly queries OSX Display to get a list of valid resolutions and SwitchResX is bypassing that system instead.
So the solution is obvious: buy a new computer pull the monitor's EDID data, hack it to enable new resolutions, and then tell OSX to use this custom EDID instead of the one retrieved from the monitor.
Following the steps of the EDID injection guide, here is where I am:
* Retrieve EDID, DisplayVendorID etc from ioreg.

* Use an EDID editor to enable new 848x477 and 1024x576 resolutions. (Verify with an online EDID tool, and compare to the previous version)

* Create a new subfolder and plist within /System/Library/Overrides/Display/ containing the new EDID string and monitor name.
Now the problems begin. Even though the plist file is being read (which I know because the Monitor Name has changed in Displays), the custom EDID is not being used. When I dig into IORegExplorer I am able to come up with AAPL00,EDID string and it is the unmodified one read from the monitor. I even tried a plug-and-unplug while OSX is running, and also tried to reset the SMC and NVRAM, but no dice.
Do I need to start digging into DSDT hacking? Is the Intel driver pulling down EDID during boot and I need to override it somewhere else? What am I missing here?
Hey there, I want to ask about a problem in my hackintosh. The screen of my hackintosh is weird. The color of the screen is very weird as you can see in the picture. In the picture is my laptop.
But it's very weird, because the problem is only in my laptop. In my second monitor, which is connected to my laptop with HDMI cable, the colors are normal. The second picture is for comparison
