Clevo P370SM3 / Sager NP9380 working but Nvidia GTX 780m Problems

Recommended Posts

A Haswell laptop with Thunderbolt

After some months of trying finally got the OS installed.

Using RehabMan's Haswell/Mavericks solution it installed perfectly.
Haswell early reboot, Mavericks, locked MSRs, and HP Envy 15-J063CL (i7-4700MQ)

I installed Maverick but with the lack of nvidia support I downgraded to mountain lion 10.8.5.
Things that I need to have it finish:
1. video card Nvidia GTX 780m

Internal network: working
Wifi: not working but ordered the correct card.
Sound: Working

Multi-touch track pad: Working with VoodooPS2Controller.kext, v1.8.9, Built 2013-12-05
Bluetooth: Working
Thunderbolt: recognizes the apple thunderbolt to firewire 800 adapter and a hard disk.

After installation It booted without graphics acceleration.
No flags worked, I try a combination of GraphicsEnabler=No, PCIRootUID=1, PCIRootUID=0, npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000

After trying i decided to install the latest nvidia drivers for 10.8.5, using using GraphicsEnabler=No and the kernel flag set to nvda_drv=1. After that I had the black screen of death. I connected an external hdmi monitor to check and suddenly it worked. I had full graphic support on the internal and external monitor. The problem is that everytime I reboot I have to connect the external monitor to get the video back from the black screen.  I can disconnect the external monitor and the internal continues to work just fine.   But its a laptop I'm not going to have an extra monitor everytime I need to reboot.

Any Ideas?

I see you are using 120Hz screen this mean no Optimus and your internal screen is connected to eDP port, this is why your Nvidia is working with full acceleration,  the issue about only working with external monitor connected is related to NVCAP (port detection) and is the same issue the ASUS ROG laptops has, check this thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/293967-asus-rog-laptops-with-kepler-cards-not-detecting-dp-2-connected-lcd-display/

 

Maybe if you unified efforts can make this to work. I´m currently under investigation how to inject NVCAP to kepler cards.

 

Good Luck

I did check the link that you provided, the only problem the I have is that I don't find a way to create The efi needed to tell the card to start from the internal monitor. I think I'm  Little Rusty on my efi creation.

Since I install the latest Nvidia Divers and updated the machine to the latest 10.9.4 now I only get the external monitor via hdmi to work. This is IOREG of this laptop. Clevo P370SM3 / Sager NP9380 Nvidia GTX 780m. For anyone that have another set of eyes that can help.

    • Here ya go... I do not see any lags on those web pages with a dual monitor setup 2560x1440. This was while playing a movie on vlc. EFI.zip   I did not see it before the nvidia fix.
    • @ivik AD1981 is an old codec.
      Ok, too few nodes for all devices, I had to reduce to Speaker, HP, IntMic and LineIn. try this: trial1_AD1981_layoutID11_(0B).zip Delete VoodooHDA and Disabler!
      AppleHDA must be original!
      AppleALC and Lilu in Clover / kexts / others and KextInject "Yes" in Clover
      Inject LayoutID 11 via Clover and FixHDA in Clover!
      or
      Inject in DSDT / HDEF with 0B without FixHDA in Clover!
      Good luck
    • Hi Sherlocks! test.zip Clover4446. Thanks, but I have not changed anything yet. If I use a clover 4439 then I do not have such nuances.
    • Navigate to this, click there, than do that, etc. That's one way to do it.   Or you navigate to https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/settings/signature/ and you bookmark / favorite that link
    • Hi,   after updating HS my WOL stopped working. It worked for sure in El Capitan, not sure in what version of HS stopped to work. I'm using Ozmosis as bootloader and IntelMausiEthernet (in S/L/E) for network. I created ssdt.aml with ssdtPRGen, and put it in EFI/Oz/Acpi/Load/. WOL is enabled in BIOS, wake for network access is checked pmset -g System-wide power settings: DestroyFVKeyOnStandby 0 Currently in use: standby 0 Sleep On Power Button 1 womp 1 hibernatefile /var/vm/sleepimage powernap 0 networkoversleep 1 disksleep 10 sleep 15 autopoweroffdelay 28800 hibernatemode 0 autopoweroff 0 ttyskeepawake 1 displaysleep 15 standbydelay 10800 If I put machine to sleep, WOL works for a short time, but not working if I let it sleep for a while.   I deleted Ethernet in Network, rebooted and recreated it, but still the same.   Hardware: MOBO:     Gigabyte Z97-D3H rev 1.1
      processor:    i5-4460 Haswell
      graphic:    Gigabyte GeForce GT 740 OC GDDR5 2GB (GV-N740D5OC-2GI)
      memory:    2 x 8GB Kingston
      disks:    Samsung SSD 850 EVO 120GB
              Seagate 2TB
              LG DVD±RW Sound:     VoodooHDA
      Network:    IntelMausiEthernet.kext   Any advice?   Best regards, Goran
