10.6 AMD NFORCE RANDOM FREEZE + BEACHBALL

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! Im a newbie to this whole osx86 thing and i need some help !!

I got 10.6.8 on my crappy old amd pc and it works almost perfect but from time to time freezes randomly(some time after like.. 10 min after boot and some times can last up to 4-8 hours without freezing) and i have to force restart(yes press that button on the case!)

Ok now this was not that simple because i had to use an 10.5 lawlessppc installation and from that to install osx 10.6 to other partition(with the leohazard for intel/amd) and then upgrade to 10.6.8(combo update)

 

MY RIG!

Processor : AMD Athlon X2 7550 Kuma 2.5GHz Socket AM2+

Motherboard : GA-M61PME-S2 (rev. 2.x)

Hard Drive : Hitachi HDP725050GLA SCSI Disk Device

Memory : 2GB DDR2 Kingmax Stick

Graphics : ASUS GeForce 210 1GB DDR3(works oob)

Sound Card : CMI8738 PCI(kinda old but still it works perfectly)

 

Bootloader : Chimera 1.11.1(full support for my graphics card)

Kernel : 10.6.8 legacy kernel by nawcom

Kexts : AppleNForceATA(most important because without it i cant boot)/Official quadro drivers form Nvidia + CUDA Drivers for mac/CMI8738PCIAudio(for enable the audio of the pci card)

 

This morning i started itunes as i usually do and after 30 min it froze the display and boom beachball of death.The Solution : Force Restart by pressing the button!! Help me please !!
