using vga or dvi ?

Nvidia 8400gs 512mb ddr2 Device id 06e4 should be supported by graphicsenabler of chmeleon 2.1 as its the older video card not 10c3

download and install latest Chameleon


Add device ID in /system/library/extensions/NVDANV50Hal.kext/contents/info.plist


Find an NVinject.kext, any one will do, they're basically the same


Graphics Enabler:




Boot with -v

and if you get stuck at [PCI configuration begin]


Boot with -v NPCI=0x2000




Boot with -v NPCI=0x3000


Try this one too:

Just to clarify, can you please verify which OSX update you installed, I know your running ML and there is no new 10.6.8 update since it came out a couple years ago so assume you meant 10.8.2 combo update?
