Hello Imaurad!

 

I hope you have copied gfxutil to /usr(hidden folder)/bin. If not do this. Get access with switchresx to your booted system, open terminal and typ this command:

 

gfxutil - f display

 

Please post here the output.

 

Hope you are not an 10 9.3.

 

You can use the enclosed files for this. Show-hide (making hidden folders and files visible and hide them als back) put in folder Application, if you don´t have it til no. Gfxutil see above.

 

Have fun.

Hey there finally had some time, really sorry about not posting the gfxutil output before, I actually did run the command but forgot to post the output.

 

here it is:

DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)

By the way I am on 10.9.3 but I am using the NVIDIA kexts from 10.9.2 as i heard there we problems with the new drivers, is that a problem?

 

I think i have 10.9.2 on a usb so i can always reinstall if needed.

 

On a another note i though that maybe osx wasn't being able to load the VBios for the built in NVidia card, so i extracted it from the main Bios and load it up through clover. It appeared in  System report but not much changed.

 

Any other ideas?

Well, I dont test it cause I would like to not mess with kexts...

Forget for sec about nvdaresman.kext, leave it untouched!

The kext I'm interested in is NVDAStartup.kext! When you install Web pkg it install a new NVDAStartup.kext, SO when you boot with nvidia flag and -v, what do you see before reaching desktop?

NVDAStartup.kext: Web

or

NVDAStartup.kext: Official?

Another thing I remember wheh I was solving my issue is that with smbios from iMac132 I can boot only with web drivers, with smbios from MBP101 I can boot only with official drivers! Oh, no GE=Yes, right?

Yeh, I know, I was in the same situation...I was bough mine especialy for mac!

How about instal not modded kexts and try with various smbios?

The things to take in consideration for me are:

smbios

drivers (web, official)

vbios (like I've wrote on post #213)

Try various combinations at least of first two!

 

(and put your HW in sig)

    • somehow I can't post a topic using safari and Firefox on Mac. no box for inserting text, is this kind of maintenance?  
    • Hello Allan!   I do have ACPIBatteryManager.kext and if i use IntelBacklight then I get stuck on boot with an error along of the lines of "busy timeout, (60s), : 'PEG0'". I have tried to patch the DSDT but failed. If i understand right, ACPIBatteryManager.kext needs DSDT edits to work? same goes for IntelBacklight?   EDIT: I tried to edit my stock DSDT using MacIASL again and i applied the battery patch for Asus Q550LF from @RehabMan Repo! I also applied the AsusFNkey DSDT patch. Now the battery meter pops up when i unplug the laptop. If i plug the charger back in, then the battery meter stays but does not update to show that the charger has been plugged in. Ive attached the DSDT below.. DSDT.aml.zip
