Recommended Posts

I'm on a Dell Dimension 4600 with


A 3.0 GHz Pentium 4 with SSE2 and SSE3

1536 MB of Crucial RAM

80 GB Western Digital Hard drive

NVIDIA geforce fx5200

SoundMAX digital audio

inel pro/100 VE network card

Monitor: Dell E173FP


using the 10.4.8 JaS DVD with defiant diskutil biker880 ich7 patch


The install itself goes well, but when os x loads (right after the grey screen with the silver apple) my monitor goes black, then becomes deep blue with a thick black stripe down the center....


I have searched for how to install the graphics card driver for this, but all I could find were ways to improve a graphics card that was already functioning decently (in order to get more resolutions)....


I have also read about using the 10.4.6 DVD, but I would like to make sure it works before I take the time to acquire it.


Can anybody help?


Thanks in Advance!


P.S. I have been trying to install based on what the wiki recommended for my system
