Laptop thinks vga is always connected

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I recently got QE/CL working on my ATI Mobility Radeon 5650 by patching my DSDT and editing Eulemur's frame buffer. Everything's working great, but my laptop seems to think that there's always a monitor hooked up to it's vga output. So I can see it in the system report and the display settings. Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm not sure if it's my DSDT or my framebuffer. My working framebuffer is:

 

 

02 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 09 01 00 00 10 00 00 07 LVDS

00 08 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 21 03 01 01 HDMI

10 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 10 02 08 VGA

You must edit ATI personality

http://www.insanelym...radeon-hd45xxx/

 

but with one fast look the problem is here (red)

 

02 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 09 01 00 00 10 00 00 07 LVDS

00 08 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 21 03 01 08 HDMI

10 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 10 00 01 VGA

ofcourse the best thing is to edit all personality.

I'm pretty sure I've already done this correctly. Why would the hotplug ID need to be the same for LVDS and VGA? I'll try it anyway. Here's the output from radeon bios decoder:

 

ATOM BIOS Rom:

And here's the output from redsock's bios decoder:

I have a question, i see that you've got running a 5650m with 1600x900,

How do you managed to get a picture on the internal LVDS?

All i got with this configuration was as scrumbled or blackscreen.

Would you be so kind to provide a little tutorial?

This graphics card was one of the most difficult I've ever had to get working. It took me a total of 2 years, 3 months, and 8 days before I for anything to display on the internal LVDS. So since I wanted to try to get my hackintosh to be as vanilla as possible, I decided to try editing my DSDT in order to get it working instead of using Chameleon's GraphicsEnabler. I discovered that my graphics card was being controller through PEGP in POP2 in my DSDT, so i edited it and this is what it's final result is:

		 }

This injects your EDID, dual-link, your vbios, you port information, graphics card information, and HDMI audio into your system. I mark the important things that are unique to your system with **. These are your vbios rom and your EDID. I've attached my DSDT , vbios, and EDID so you can see how it should be formatted.

 

After that you you need to edit a frame buffer to match the information contained in your vbios. Here's the output from radeon_bios_decoder on mine:

The important parts from this are your sensed. Mine are 7 LVDS, 1 HDMI, 8 VGA

 

Here's the output from red sock_bios_decoder:

The important parts from this are the txmit and enc values. Mine are 10 0 LVDS, 21 3 HDMI, 0 10 VGA. You can look up some tutorials on this forum if this is unclear.

 

Here's what Eulemur frame buffer looked like before

Personality: Eulemur
Disk offset in decimal 166336
04 00 00 00 14 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 01 02 01 04 LVDS
00 08 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 71 00 00 12 04 04 02 HDMI
10 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 10 00 01 VGA

 

Here's what it looked like after:

Personality: Eulemur
Disk offset in decimal 166336

02 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 09 01 00 00 10 00 00 07 LVDS
00 08 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 71 00 00 21 03 01 01 HDMI
10 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 10 02 08 VGA

 

So edit ATI5000Controller.kext/Contents/MacOS/AMD5000Controller at decimal offset 166336 using a hexeditor for your correct framebuffer.

 

Thats it. Repair permission with diskutility and restart. Then test out dvdplayer and see it you have a tranparent menu bar. If they both work then you have QE/CL working. I hope this helps. If some things aren't clear enough then let me know.

I have the same problem on my HD7670. I also have senseid 08 for VGA and I think this is causing the problem. No idea how to solve it yet :(

The easiest solution probably would be to disable VGA port and buy HDMI->VGA converter. But it costs quite a lot, so not really a good idea.

After testing out a few thing, this makes it so that vga isn't always connected. Unfortunately it might also break vga and hdmi, but I haven't tested them yet.

Thank you very much, that's excatly the Tutorial i was looking for,

When work's over i will test this.

When i'm struggeling at some point, may i ask for some additional advice?

 

Edit: i have the same machine like the guy in this thread

or this
