graphic problem in 10.4.7

Hello Friends,


Today I installed osx 10.4.7 with combo update and SSE3 patch. Now when I boot my osx normally the login screen and the desktop comes all grabbled. I can't see anything properly.

Only when I boot the system in safe mode (pressing shift + v during the darwin prompt).

I get proper graphics (at resolution 1280x800).


Now I have couple of questions:


1) How can I get proper graphics while booting the system normally ?


See I have intel 950 GMA which is very well recognized by the osx ( i saw in system profiler).


2) My sound is not working ?


In system preferences I see Intel High Definition Audio but in System Preferences > Sound I doesn't see anything in input as well as output.


3) When I saw my display/graphics chipset in system profiler it states Quartz extreme is Not supported.


See for better reference I am pasting the output of System profiler for my Graphics/Displays


Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950:


Chipset Model: GMA 950

Type: VGA-Compatible Controller

Bus: Built-In

VRAM (Total): 256 MB

Please if anybody can provide some guidance regarding my above questions it will be very helpful.
