(Solved) AMD HD 7870 Black Secondary Monitor Problem

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Currently my install is 100% working except that so far I have only been able to get one of my 1080p monitors working with a MiniDP to HDMI cable. I currently am getting a second MiniDP to HDMI cable but for now I am stuck with a DVI to HDMI cable.

The monitor that is working is plugged in via the MiniDP to HDMI. The monitor that isn't working is using the DVI cable. However I also tried switching it to HDMI to HDMI which had the same result. The monitor wakes up but it's black. However for whatever reason, both monitors are still recognized in system preferences and hackintool.

I know all my cables are good and work because I updated from an install of El Capitan (which I still have on it's original SSD just in case this install fails) as well as a Windows install. Both monitors worked fine on El Capitan for literally years. El Capitan is just too old now and I need to update to keep up with software updates.

Problem reporting files should provide needed info about how I've configured this install. Build is in my signature.

      I have been trying to get my Lenovo G570 i5 2430M with HD3000 (id: 116) to work for almost 2 months. Mountain Lion works flawlessly but Mavericks onwards, display stays off with the exact same setup (Chameleon: Extra folder with smbios mbp8,1 included in attachment)
       
      I'm able to boot and see the screen with remote desktop but internal display stays off.
       
      found an old post which fixed issue for few users
       
      I understand HD3000 is natively supported till High Sierra, which is why I'm totally baffled and out of ideas to proceed with.
       
      Any help is greatly appreciated
      Thanks

      Hi all,
       
      I'm using ESXI 7.0b (did use 6.7 to try but with no difference).
       
      Right now on Catalina but I can't seem to try to get GPU (RX580) working properly.
       
      I pass it through to the VM(tried with windows before with no problems) and it appeared just as pci-device with no name.
       
      After that, I've applied whatevergreen + lilu kexts and it does properly recognize it under system report however that's all there is. It's listed at GFX0. See attached images.
       
      No hardware acceleration. Monitor also not turning on using either DP/HDMI. 
       
      Since it is being passed through to the VM, it seems that the problem is not on ESXi side but on macOS side. 
       
      Has anyone has been able to pass through an AMD GPU to ESXI VM? Can anyone suggest some pointers as to where I could find some solutions to this problem?
       
      Thanks!

      My configuration is:
      Dell XPS 13 9300 Core i7-1065g7 (G7 Iris plus graphics) 16 GB RAM UHD+ monitor (4k: 3840x2400 Touchscreen)  
      The problem that i am currently experiencing is that the internal display is recognised but for some reason is not functioning the way it should. The internal display becomes partially fragmented after few seconds of not doing anything, Although the internal monitor is not functioning, when i connect an external monitor (with FHD resolution) It becomes fully recognised and functioning. When i connect the external monitor the internal monitor becomes blank. With the external monitor i can confirm that i have acceleration.
       
      Here is a log Boot log.
      Here is the config.
       
      Here is a picture of the fragmentation.
       
      Here is a picture when there is an external monitor connected.
