NVidia Quadro K3000M in Dell M6700...

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm trying to get an NVidia K3000m Kepler/gk104 graphics card working in a Dell Precision M6700.

 

After installing the 10.8.2 update for later 2012 macs, the NVDAStartup.kext seems to get the GPU recognised... and it detects that it has 4 display ports, but the displays aren't initialised.. This is the same as trying to get the HD4000 going too. The driver sees the IGPU, but doesn't initialise the displays.. but anyway, the K3000M is the important one. Optimus is disabled in the BIOS... I've included the text ioreg dump with the NVidia driver half loaded.. If anyones interested in taking a look. I'd be happy to try out DSDT edits if anyone has suggestions.. I suspect it's a question of injecting the right values.. or waiting for a new driver.. :(

 

Thanks.

 

PS. I also posted a question about this here: http://www.insanelym...w/#entry1877698 Which has a bit more info about what I've tried.

OMG! I think all the problems I was having were due to having Direct IO (VT-d) turn on in the BIOS. I disable it and now HD4000 is working.. I'll write more when/if I get the K3000M going.

 

Before disabling VT-d. The machine would boot in safe mode with HD4000 and K3000m. But when booting in normal mode weird stuff would happen. Like partially initialising the graphics system. I would often get things like this in the log file

Which looks a bit like the CPU or memory is duff.

    • Hi,Bergui.  I am certainly happy you finally solved your problem  but I am confused.  What you did is what you were supposed to do to do to begin with.  What were you doing before? You mean you were creating your USB with something else than a Mac? 
    • Is there a simple guide somewhere that explains what to do to to help out testing your ssdt's? I got clover configurator, ioregexplorer and some basic knowledge but it's hard to find out where to start.  Also... if I was about to apply an ssdt... is it easily reversible or do I have do an reinstall every time I screw up?   Edit: Admire your work by the way. I've been google'n this for years. Hat's off! 
    •   Hi Maldon, great guide! I got my old Dell 780 (LGA775) running High Sierra 10.13.4 nicely, thank you!   I have no audio and I see where you mention "Device HDEF + AppleALC + Lilu". I have AppleALC + Lilu in my KEXT folder but not sure what "Device HDEF" is. 
      Also when it goes to sleep it takes like 2 minutes to wake. I have a Q9400 quad core + Nvidia Quadro FX580 but don't have a DSDT for it. Can you help me with a DSDT?   Here are my RunMe Results https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Duv3XYyW4UhziDVVWdquwxYcGQ-D5tvm/view?usp=sharing   SPECS: Dell 780 MT, Q9400 2.66GHz Core2Quad Core, Nvidia Quadro FX580 
    • I've tried these several methods of booting into clover, but it still skips. I even double checked that i was using your Clover folder. Bios settings should be the same too... this is getting really strange here.
