EVGA GeForce 210 1GB - Broken On Mavericks?


7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've had this graphics card for quite some time, and it has always worked flawlessly out of the box. I'm currently on ML 10.8.5 as I type this. After installing Mavericks GM with MyHack (new partition, fresh install), the graphics are stuck at 1024x768 and are choppy/slow (no QE/CI). They were this way during installation, and afterwards remained the same. Are there some changes or alternative method to get well-known OOB budget cards functioning on Mavericks? I don't remember having to mess with NVIDIA-specific kexts since 10.5/10.6. This card has always "just works."


Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.


Here's the output from ML (working great).

Never had a single issue with it, be it with the DPs or the GM. I smell an operator error: is it a clean installation? If GE=Yes isn't working, do as Rampage says. Good luck!

PS.: VGA is working...


The drivers have been buggy for a lot of users. 2 systems the same and the GPU would post on one and not the other using the same HDD! Been a strange issue. Since it is a cheap card not to much has been put into finding the real cause.
