Desktop unresponsive for several minutes at boot

Recommended Posts

I just acquired a laptop. It's an Acer Extensa 5420. It is an AMD Turion64X2 based machine.

 

I have installed 10.6.3 Retail using Nawcom's ModUSB. The problem is the PS2 kexts. I've tried several different kexts, with varying degrees of success. Ideally I'd like to have full synaptics features, which are known to work on 10.6.8 on this laptop, but I have opted to stick with 10.6.3 because it is far more stable than 10.6.8 and I can acheive proper resolution.

 

But the biggest issue that is plaguing me is the fact that when I boot up, I can move the mouse using the trackpad but I can't click on anything or type anything for several minutes (usually between 3-4 minutes after boot). After that, it works fine and doesn't give me any problems but the delay is VERY annoying.

 

I'm inclined to believe it may be caused by more than just the PS2 kexts. Even when I plug in a USB keyboard and mouse, the problem persists. The mouse will move, but I can't click on anything or type anything in for at least 3-4 minutes after boot

Hello,

 

I've got the same problem and it seems that it's not just the two of us. I've searched other sites/forums and nobody seems to have found a solution to this very annoying issue.

 

I'm on 10.8.2 ML but before, on 10.7.4, I didn't have this problem at all! I'm still looking for a solution somewhere in the hackintosh community.

 

Has anybody here on insanelymac found a solution or has any insight? Any suggestions would be highly appreciated :)

 

Thanks.
