yet another HD3000 issue

Recommended Posts

Sorry to bring this up again, but I need a hand figuring out my HD3000 issues.

 

I've tried every guide I've been able to find, and nothing seems to work.

 

My monitor resolution is correct, but I don't seem to be getting proper acceleration. 

 

I think a lot of my problems come down to just plain not understanding what it is I am supposed to do, seems like most of these guides are written for people that have some experience in OSX.

 

Anyways,

I do have my gpu RAM set to 384MB is my BIOS. Motherboard is a GB GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3. 2500K processor. I am pretty sure I have the gfx overclocked a tad, from 1100 to 1600 in the BIOS.
 
I have Chameleon 2.2 from the downloads section installed, and the hd3000 package from the same. 
 
It seems like I am having the issue due to the DID 0x0112 thing, but I can't figure out how to edit the info.plist and add the line like it said.
 
edit: I figured out how to take ownership of the kexts and add the lines per the guide, but it didn't work.

Well, success!!!

 

I finally got it working. Nearly 10 hours after I started today, after weeks of giving up.

 

What I had to do was format my drive, reinstall 10.8.2, install DSDT. I did NOT install the Intel graphics Kexts.

 

I DID force the 1080 resolution, but I probably didn't need to.

 

Reboot, and it works.

    • Hi @fabiosun and thank's for your patience with an old and stubborn man.   I am 100 % sure that my MSR 0xE2 register is unlocked thank's to you.   My system is 100% stable and I haven't had one kp with this configuration in the last two weeks.    I'm now running without TSCAdjustReseat.kext and I can't se any issues in performance with or without that kext. What I however can se is that the amount of total energy consumed during the test-cycle are 10 times higher without the kext (three times Cinebench CPU and two times Luxmark open CL) as you can see in the output from my AppleIntelInfo.kext attached in my earlier post.   I have tested running Cinebench five times in a row with or without TSC kext and have exactly the same performance (see attached files). Temperature is not a problem at all.   Everything seems to be fine so I guess I have to wait and see if upcoming 10.13.5 maybe recognise Intel Xeon w series processor as native.     
    • Tried with HPET enabled and disabled so I don't think it's that. I'd tried with bus ratio before to no effect but wouldn't hurt to try again. The clock runs at the correct speed.
    • could be an HPET / TSC Sync issue. does your system clock slow down or run faster then it should. also check cpu and buss ratios.
    • @MacPeet El capitan. It has t7700 cpu, so HS is not option for now. Have to find t9500 cpu. I bought this laptop for 30euros 3 weeks ago, with everything working, battery like new, it looks like from store, 4gb ram, 1920x1200 17" screen, replaced wifi and put SSD. Also sleep and hibernation working, native brightness, volume touch buttons work. Windows was not option because of broken  touchpad drivers, and linux because of slow graphics. Here everything works like it should.   AD1981 is also on thinkpad T60. I searched everywhere, but no solution. Here is some half working legacy driver, don't know how binary was patched(if it was): https://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=85344&start=28#p564260
    • the slowness is most likely IM's host provider. we used to use ONE.com but they sucked and it was super slow so we switched and things definitely got better on the slowness front
