Need help nvidia Gforce 8500 GT 256 Vram

20 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hello everybody.

my problem is this:

 

i have a nvidia 8500gt with 256 ram Low-profile manufactured by MSI. (DVI+HDMI)

i installed Mountain Lion and my graphic card is working (GraphicEnabler=Yes) only on DVI port (recognized as GeForce 8500GT 256VRam) (i use dvi-hdmi converter) and black screen on HDMI port.

i have a custom dsdt but no gfx injection and i use dsdt for hdaudio and other fixes.

i tried to edit plist in nvda kexsts and nvenabler64 (not used since now) to add my devid (0x042110de) but no luck...

any help will be apreciated.

thanks

Cleaned it up a bit not completely. Injected your GPU into your DSDT. Remove

GraphicsEnabler=Yes

 

 

If you can not boot with this DSDT boot with:

 

DSDT=No

 

Note this is case sensitive.

 

Also if you get a black screen that means that I have to apply another edit.

In a few minutes...

 

I observed that when i plug hdmi cable in a second Monitor (using HDMI port), first Monitor turned blue (DVI port) and second Black (No signal).

 

Post a new IOreg. Thanks.

 

here is latest ioreg using dsdt edited by U

 

maybe this will help:

 

using enoch boot loader (using graphicenabler=yes) i got this:

 

Using PCI-Root-UID value: 0

GeForce 8500 GT 256MB NV86 [10de:0421]-[1462:0921] :: PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) device number: 1

IT seems that my graphic card was the problem. Yesterday died totally. Replaced with a new card Asus gf g210 1024 vram and hdmi-dvi-vga working all.
