OS X 10.7.3 - 10.8.1 Black Screen Issue

Recommended Posts

I'm using Lenovo E320 with HD3000 integrated graphics, it's screen turns black during startup or installation. OS X 10.7.3 - 10.8.2 versions. I discovered that to replace the AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext in S/L/E by the one of Lion 10.7.0 can solve this issue. I think this solution may help in 10.8.2 and some laptop models too.


I would like to know other solutions, wish you would share your experiences.


More details of the above issue:


Hardware: Lenovo E320, Intel i3-3250M, HM65 Express Chipset, HD3000 integrated graphics




Lion 10.7.0:

both install and bootup without problem


Lion 10.7.3 - M. Lion 10.8.1:

1. built-in LCD screen turns black during startup or installation.

2. if a monitor is attached with HDMI port, both built-in screen and HDMI monitor work fine all the time

      I recently set up my hackintosh. Everything else works fine, the only issue is my monitor cannot come back from sleep.
      If I click the "sleep" menu manually, the system goes to sleep fine. After the system sleeps for a while (more than a few mins, I guess it's called "deep sleep"), when I try to wake it up, the monitor wakes up but stays black screen. The machine is on. If I leave the system to time out and sleep by itself, only the monitor goes off; when I try to wake it up, same symptom as above.
      What I have tried (but none worked):
      additional boot flag: ngfxpatch=pikera additional boot flag: darkwake = 0 Customize EDID
      Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77x-UD5H BIOS: F16j CPU: Ivy Bridge i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz (quad core) Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1050 Monitor: Dell P2715Q @ 4k / 60Hz, Display Port Wifi / Bluetooth: BCM94360CS with PCIE Onboard GPU: disabled OS: High Sierra 10.13.3
      Please see attached for following files:

      I am looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks.

      When I turn on my PC it will show Clover on the 1080p monitor and the other two DP monitors will go into standby, if I boot OSX like this then all monitors will black screen instead of showing the login screen. The DP monitors will go into an endless loop of trying to get a signal and saying "Display Port" like they do when looking for a singal and the 1080p DVI one will just display a black screen. The system is not hung, I can still ssh into it.
      The only way for me to successfully boot and have all 3 monitors work is either to:
      fully turn off both DP monitors, boot only with DVI until log in screen, then turn on both DP monitors
      manually turn on both DP monitors while booting but before it comes to the login screen, so they are not in standby
      But if I just let it start normally it without doing either it black screens.
      The same thing also happens when I'm already logged in and have it running successfully and turn off all monitors and come back later. Usually (8 out of 10 times) when I turn them all on it works again, but the other 2 times all of them start to black screen the same way. It seems the most consistent way to avoid that is to turn both DP monitors on at the same time.
      What I've tried so far:
      SMBIOS 14.2, 15.1, and MacPro 6.1 (the current one), none of that helped.
      Lilu.kext + NvidiaGraphicsFixup
      Patching AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist and setting everything to none
      Switching the 1080p monitor to HDMI but that was the same, can't switch the DP monitors really since they are 4k and need DP.
      Nothing had any effect.
      My setup:
      i7 4790k, GA-Z97X-UD3H, 32gb
      980Ti (reference card) driver 378. (should be the latest one)
      2x Samsung 4k monitor (Display Port)
      1x 1080p via DVI

      Buongiorno a tutti sono un nuovo utente del forum e avrei bisogno di aiuto. Ho installato sierra sul mio laptop che ha le seguenti caratteristiche:
      Scheda video: intel hd graphics 3000 + NVIDIA GeForce GT 720M (so già che la scheda Nvidia non funzionerà)
      Scheda audio: Intel High Definition Audio
      Scheda di rete: 802.11b/g/n
      Questo è ciò che funziona e ciò che non funziona:
      Audio (OK)
      WebCam (OK)
      Ethernet (OK)
      Graphics (OK)
      Touchpad (OK)
      Keyboard (OK)
      WiFi (OK)
      USB (OK)
      Bootloader (OK)
      Battery (NO)
      Microphone (NO)
      Brightness (NO)
      Bluetooth (NO)
      SD Card Reader (NO)
      ​Non è che qualcuno di voi riuscirebbe a sistemarmi il DSDT in modo che il  portatile funzioni correttamente con sierra? Grazie in anticipo
