Nvidia 8600GT Graphic corruption

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,


So my specs are:


Motherboard: Asus P5PL2-E

Processor: Intel Pentium D 925 3.0Ghz

Graphic Card: Nvidia 8600GT

Memory: 2GB 800mhz


I did the following:

- Installed Hazard 10.6.6i with Legacy Kernel AHCISataFix (i think it's called) Realtek R1000, NVEnabler, boot with arch=i386 and i think it boots with GraphicsEnabled=Yes and builtinEthernet


- Download the 10.6.8 v1.2 combo update from Apple's site, the Nawcom legacy kernel and the ###### for Snow Leo


- Rushed in to install the combo update, then the Nawcom kernel (it crashes everytime the installer when i accept the terms so i run the installer twice) then install the Chimera from the ######.


- All well, I restart with the Nawcom kernel ( tried all the steps 3 times so far) and this is what happens when the desktop should appear:





Any suggestions what I should do? Thanks in advance!





Update Day 2 still running Snow Leopard 10.6.6. I have no clue what could be causing the glitch described above. Yet I find this in my System Profiler:





ROM Revision: 0x00


Thank you once again!
