Graphics only work in safe boot

Today I installed JaS 10.4.6 on my old PC. It's a 945 chipset PC. I installed the gma900 patch of the JaS install DVD. The video chip is a GMA950

 

But the graphics work only in safe boot. In normal boot I get a scrambled display.

 

So why does my video only work in safe boot?

VGA drivers are not loaded in safe mode (as well as some other drivers). Hence the VGA driver you've installed, is not working properly.

 

That are the other hardware parts you're using? Why Tiger?

I searched in the hcl to this motherboard and it came out that JaS 10.4.6 the most compatible is. The hardware isn't very powerful (intel celeron, 1.5gb ram)

 

Would it be better to remove the intel gma Kexts that I have installed?

Then installing OS X from a distro disk (like the one you use), it is recommended to install only bare minimum of drivers (kexts; that is no VGA or Sound or LAN drivers). The idea is to get the system booting and then troubleshoot the rest.
