I posted at the tail end of another thread, but I'm desperate so I'm posting my own. I've got everything nearly perfect natively running 10.4.8 on my thinkpad, but I cannot get the native lcd to show anything but black.


When I first did my install, I had the native lcd working, but couldn't get anything but 1024x768 no matter what I did or edited. Then I used the Natit_ATIauto.kext.zip and I could get the right resolutions, but only with the external lcd plugged in. So I've been running all my apps for a few days and have really settled into this thing, but I cannot take it with me and use it as a laptop, which sucks.


What file can I edit, what can I do to get the 1400x1050 working on the laptop's lcd screen? Shoudl I have used (can I now use) a different .zip file from this post?


My ATIRadeonX1000 file has all the cards still in there. Would removing or adding anything to that help?


**As I look at this, I notice the dev id in the x1300 line is 7140, but mine is listed as 7149? Can I change that entry in the .plist file?


At this point I'm hoping for a quick change and a reboot to fix this. hah. - Craig


Here is the entry it must use for me (?)
