One thing that would help would be you disabling the first oner (integrated) on the BIOS. Verify if your BIOS has this option, that would be a very good improvement in your chances. Use only the second card if you can (device ID 0x68401002).

Part that interests you: http://www.gaminglap...70m-vs-gt-630m/

 

The Radeon HD 7660G found in the Trinity A10-4600M CPU, the Radeon HD 7670M which is actually a rebranded Radeon HD 6650M

 

Luckily for you, the HD6650M works with OSX: http://www.insanelym...s-enabler-dsdt/

 

:D

 

Check the linked topic and use the solutions posted there. If necessary, ask help in the topic. Good luck!

In fact, 7670M works much worse then 6650M. I mean it's harder to get it working.. If you have 2Gb version of the card, then it works pretty good. But there are some unresolved troubles with 1Gb card. Check my post on Applelife: http://applelife.ru/threads/mobility-amd-radeon-hd6650m-hd6550m-hd7670m.32223/page-11#post-339043

EDIT: I think mine has more than 1 Gb as I recall but doesnt reach 2Gb..

Or I do have 2GB :P Pic: https://www.dropbox.... 14.11.24.jpg?m

Hmm, you have some kind of dual graphics.. I have no idea if that works on Mac, but probably it does not. However, if you can somehow disable that 7520G, 7670M should work normally.

Clover only recognizes the 7670M..at the Graphics Injection section :P So I might guess it is kinda disabled??! :moil:

 

Installed now Catalyst.. and IT HAS 3 Gb(More than 3Gb) man!!! :PP Look: xD https://www.dropbox....03 14.23.49.jpg and then the 7520 has 512 MB

olá

 

dá aki uma boa leitura sobre gráficas ati.. para k a gráfica trabalhe tem de ser carregadas para memória algumas kext.. algumas provavelmente terão de ser editadas...

bom hack

 

Tase bem bgadao ;D ja vou testar..agora tou so a dar VIDA a garantia para n ir com o caralho :P haha xD

 

EDIT2: Ja testei aquilo que disseste e faltame por para a aceleracao so encontrei a x2000 ..

Well, you must either find a way to disable in BIOS the 512MB 7520G (the integrated graphic card) to use only the 3GB HD7670M (which is loading the kext, so it would start working immediately) or find a working kext to the 7520G itself (in that case, you won't be able to use the 7670M but at least you would have QE/CI).

 

Good luck!

How about in hardware? ..Bios it would be with Bios modding..but I've asked at a website made for that..and no luck :/ (http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-Request-HP-Pavilion-g6-2151sp-Enable-one-Graphics-Card-Kinda-urgent?pid=55593#pid55593 )

P.S.: http://www.wikihow.com/Disable-the-Onboard-Graphics-and-Install-a-New-Graphics-Card-in-Your-HP-Pavilion-6630

 

If you do it, you're on your own, since you might as well end up breaking your computer beyond repair (since it involves to open it and disconnect/connect wires mannualy). Think twice. Think thrice.

 

Good luck!

 

P.P.S.: can you connect an external monitor to the VGA or HDMI out of your laptop and test if it's working with full acceleration?

P.P.P.S.: Another option you could try before opening your laptop (if you're crazy enough do open your laptop: i'd never do that) is trying to edit the ATI7000Controller.kext to inject your card: you copy the kext to the desktop, right click it and choose show package contents, open Info.plist with TextEdit.app and type in the string under the IOPCIPrimaryMatch the following: 0x99901002.

 

IOPCIMatch

0x99901002 0x26001002 0x22001002 0x67901002 0x67981002 0x679A1002 0x679E1002 0x67801002 0x68201002 0x68211002 0x68251002 0x68271002 0x682D1002 0x682F1002 0x68391002 0x683B1002 0x683D1002 0x683F1002 0x68001002 0x68061002 0x68081002 0x68181002

 

Copy the AMDAccelerator.kext to the desktop and do the same, under AMDVerdeGraphicsAccelerator (which is incorrect for your card, it should be Thames or Lombok - unfortunately the plist doesn't have these options :()

 

Put back both kexts in System/Library/Extensions.

 

Then you open DiskUtility.app and chose repair disk permissions. Cross fingers and reboot.

VGA doesnt work..and HDMI works with the first graphics card..so.. at the end of the boot some wierd thing happens Im gonna look for a log..

And related to hardware..Ill try it ..easy for me..xD but first Id like to get a workaround without touching the hardware :P

 

olá

 

em ML a aceleradora é amdradeonaccelerator...

 

akilo tá em português...

 

bom hack

 

Se este metodo n der..ja tento esse melhor.

Trying now..

 

EDIT2: Can't I put both? so it Possibly recognizes both?

 

EDIT3: YES IT DOES HAVE LOMBOK!!

ANDDD on that string IT has the 0x94801002 already there :P

No: the other isn't an authentic 7xxx, but a rebranded 6xxx instead.

 

Should I try anyways? Imagine it works? xD

No, and if you do it, you simply nullify what you're doing now for the 7520. :)

 

If it is a rebranded 6xxx..shouldnt I put it on the ATI6000?

 

On boot it identified an ATI but nothing happened.. (It showed the correct id: 0x99901002 --related to what you said, and now Ive added it to the ATI6000 and the same thing appeared.

 

And the Hardware method you gave me wont work..it would only make a diference in windows..and I dont even have windows in the laptop anymore XP

    • Good evening to all. So, I have an external 1TB seagate HD and it always reads normally, but now when I plug it into my HACK it just does not read, it does not even appear on the disk utility. The light always turns blue from the HD without blinking. However I plugged it into windows, on a macbook and it worked normally. I already formatted my hack but it did not work. Thank you in advance for the help and sorry my bad english   my kexts: AppleALC.kext FakeSMC.kext IntelGraphicsFixup.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext Lilu.kext WhateverGreen.kext VoodooHDA.kext USBInjectAll.kext NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext   GTX 1080 Windforce core i5 7º generation 8gb Ram H170M Plus BR    
    • WOL packet is reaching the machine from LAN and from WAN (set with port forwarding), tested with "nc -l -u 9".
    • For me the forum seems reasonably OK, except whenever I see the word 'LOADING' - like when clicking another page of a thread - when it just stops completely and never returns.   I use an adblocker, so adverts aren't slowing me down.  Browsing the forum indexes is not too bad, as is clicking to view any thread.  Ditto clicking a link in an email notification to go to a particular post in a thread.  Sometimes it takes maybe five seconds to load a page, which is a bit too long.  But it's not terrible.   But then whenever I click on any other thread page, which tries to do the in-page content load (without a full page refresh), I see LOADING and then nothing further happens, even after minutes.   It's definitely not related to which content is loaded, but rather how it is loaded.  For example if I go to the index for this forum, then click directly to page 11 of this thread, it loads in 1-5 seconds.  But if I click the link to page 11 within the thread, it never comes back.  I just see this, forever:     This stuck issue seems to me likely something broken (code or configuration?) rather than a general slowdown.  But maybe there's also a general slowdown, especially for those who are seeing adverts.
    • This is as far as I can get with the AMD kexts and the device ID added. They load but the frame buffer isn't loaded. I've tried loading all 7 frame buffers included in the X1000 kext with no luck. From the tests Gigamaxx did there seems to be more luck spoofing as Intel graphics there. More support may come from integrated Vega though, hard to tell.    
    • as documented here it is a sample rate standard and i have also tested it and i can confirm that it works with my audigy rx at least, i have to test it with other cards   https://github.com/audiojs/sample-rate
