Help With a X1600 Pro

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I recently installed OS X on my AMD machine, it runs myzars, OS X and my system is a AMD 3200, A8N SLI-Deluxe everything worked besides the LAN, but i popped in a realtek lan card.


The problem I am having is that it picks up my video card as a genaric one, with 256mb of ram.


I use a Asus x1600 PCI-X with 512MB of memory, as pictured here




I want to change my resolution however since it did not pick up my video card correctly it only lets me keep it at 1024x768, I want to adjust it to 1280x1024, how can I do this? Also what do I need to patch/update and how would I do it. Im not Mac expert, but I do know about hardware, and PCs, and such.


If needed here my complete specs


AMD 3200 64bit 939

A8N SLI Deluxe

Asus Extreme ATI Radeon X1600 Pro (512MB, PCI-X)

1 GB Memory

2 Hard Drives, Mac 80GB ATA, Windows 160GB SATA


1.44 MB Floppy Drive

12 in 1 Card Reader


OS X 10.4

Follow the Boris link in my signature. Posting #1 gives a manual method to make the changes. Posting #3 takes you to an installer (use the older one). Both accomplish the changes using a slightly different method. If one doesn't work, try the other. The installer gives you an uninstaller script - be sure to read the info panels in the installer.
