ATI Radeon x1600 black screen

Just installed a few Days ago Mac OS x 10.4.9 for AMD

Today i've installed the NatidX1600 Driver for my Radeon x1600 pro (PCIE) but after reboot i only get a black screen.

OS X boots correctly, because i can hear the sound.


Now i found this:


I took Diobolik's x1600 installer from his website linked through this thread. Used Pacifist to open the package up and I took out just the ATINDRV.kext and NatitX1600.kext and threw them into my Extensions folder.


I then edited the NatitX1600.kext to include my device ID 0x71ce1002, rebooted, and my resolutions worked perfectly, no display corruption, just abosolutly perfect, but I didn't get CI/QE yet.


To get CI/QE, I edited the default ATIRadeonX1000.kext to include my device ID. Rebooted and voila, full QE/CI with resolutions.


I edited the *.kext files but its still the same problem.



My System:


Athlon 64 3500+

Board: Asus A8N VM

Systemversion: Mac OS X 10.4.9 (8P2137)
