GA-990FXA-UD5 npci=0x3000 disables audio - Options?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a working AMD FX-8350 on a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 that works pretty well except that I have to boot with npci=0x3000 or I get the [PCI Configuration] hang.

 

What are my options for getting sound out of this thing?

 

I tried the latest Voodoo drivers, but it causes hangs and freezes when booting as well.

Hello

 

Did you removed AppleHDA or installed AppleHDADisabler before install VoodooHDA?

 

If yes, continue using VoodooHDA normally, just remove npci=0x3000 and install this kext: http://netkas.org/?p=1072

This kext will make the same this flag npci=0x3000 made

Hint: Install it with Kext Wizard and update cache...

 

Newest VoodooHDA version(2.8.4): http://sourceforge.net/projects/voodoohda/files/VoodooHDA-v284.zip/download

No! Install the new driver from carlo_67, the new driver can you found under download! Carlo_67 has the new iopcifamily for Mavericks without NPCI = 0x for me .... created.

I can't get the built in audio ALC889 to work with either of these options.

 

I installed the carlo_67 kexts and the lastest Voodoo 2.8.2 and I rebooted and I still can't get the audio hardware to be detected.

 

Any hand holding about what I need to remove and what I need to add would be appreciated.

 

I removed all the kext from the blacklist in AppleKextExcludeList.kext, and I installed the carlo_67 kext with KextWizard, rebuilt caches and reset permissions on /S/L/E.

 

No joy

alternative:

 

Install VoodooHDA 2.8.4 and follow the install instructions, very important that you adjust your hardware ID, otherwise it may not work. furthermore you have to call the audio-midi-setup and make the settings, get informed by google searchmachine

 

 After then Install VoodooHDA Sound Fix, in the packed file are the following files :

sleepwatcher.pkg

SleepWatchter StartupItem.pkg

rc.wakeup

 

1 Download the zip file and unzip it to your desktop.

2 Install the "sleepwatcher.pkg" and the "SleepWatcher StartupItem.pkg".

3 Now open terminal and type the commands into two.

sudo rm -rf rm -rf /etc/rc.wakeup
sudo cp -R Desktop/VoodooHDA\ Sound\ Fix/rc.wakeup /etc

(this information comes from a German osx forum, not for me)

so actually the settings should remain intact, otherwise you loose after every reboot the VoodooHDA settings, so it is advisable to install the VoodooHDA sound FIx.
