nVidia 9600 GT 512Mb

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everybody,


I have successfuly installed Mountain Lion on my Asus P5K-E / Wifi and all the components work perfectly.

But I have a major issue with my GPU. It's a Sparkle nVidia 9600GT with 512Mb.

When I use the stock nvidia kexts of mountain lion I have a black screen when loading. Even if I have the graphic enabler set to yes.

I have tried to inject my device-properties to chameleon with no luck.

I can only reach the Mountain Lion desktop if I inject my device id to the nvidia kext, but my VGA it's not recognized. it is recognized as 5Mb nvidia and off course no accellaration.

I have even tried to put the VGA in my dsdt, but again no luck.


Is there any one that can help me with this?

I have tried that many time and it doesn't.

I have installed ML and I am having a black screen. From the log I can see that the system is running correctly, but nothing is visible on the screen.


Maybe it was for the 10.8 seeds and not for the production release. Because I have seen on the forums that ML DP had OOB support for 9600GT.


While on Lion I have full graphics and no problem with my vga.

Well I made a progress.


I installed the lastest chameleon svn and I have full graphics and the GPU is correctly recognized, but it's very buggy.

If I open quicklaunch then the graphics are flickering, the same for reminder side bar.


So what's next?
