Seems you don't have replace all files. In my files I've changed the name of the board in "X1650XT" instead of "X1650 Series"...

Just try again: copy all files on extensions directory . Be sure of sobstitue all the files, maybe you can try on safe mode, or on text mode (-s during startup). I remember some problem with the file called atixxxxxxGA.plugin , you have to delete it first!

And... at the end a "extension-repair" and a disk utility (not necessary, but...)

 

 

My motherboard is an m2n-sli deluxe, 2gb ocz, 4200 x2 amd.

Zephyroth, all software installed, all upgrade upgraded (excetion for airport and time machine one)...

I've only had a problem with the opengl 2.0 but resolved thanks to marvin's "don't panic" program, and now I can also play few games... I get an high point on xbench, so I assume it's all working good :unsure:

And, more important, the vga board is fully qe/ci and resolution functional...

I followed your instructions as well.. don't think it worked. Infact upon boot up it told me that ATIRadeonX1000.kext has some problem or something.

Save yourselves much trouble - the 1650 is not supported. You can get it to work with a GREAT deal of effort, and I have, with 10.5, 10.5.1, 10.5.2 with graphics update even - all Core Image and Quartz Extreme all resolutions etc... however, the Mac thinks it's a 1600 and runs it at a much lower clock speed than it should be, as well as being UNSTABLE. It would lock my Mac up at least once an hour in use. I finally gave up, swapped for an NVIDIA 8600GTS (just $80) which works flawlessly and is much faster and has the benefit of being a Direct X 10 card when you boot into Windows. If I would have known how much easier this card was, I wouldn't have messed with my ATI 1650 for so long... I recommend you do the same. Good luck!

Hahahhaha This problems spend me 2 days working out the driver.. AT LAST I FOUND IT..!!!

 

Here are the steps... I read through all the post about ATI driver X1650XT for Mac..

 

Here are what I did to GET THIS WORKING : (1280x1024 Resolutions)

 

Necessary Files:

1. ATIinject.kext (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?act=attach&type=post&id=16708)

 

Chapter 1: Editing ATIinject.kext

1. Right click on ATIinject.kext and select "Show Package Contents"

2. Open the contents folder

3. Open info.plist in TextEdit

4. Find the section below and change the DeviceID to your cards DeviceID (to find your device id, open system profiler and look at your graphics card information, it will be listed in there.)

For example below, if your DeviceID = 7291.

CODE

<key>ATY,DeviceID</key>

<integer>0x7291</integer>

 

5. You DO NOT remove the following code from the file:

CODE

<key>ATY,FrameBufferOffset</key>

<integer>0x00000080</integer>

                

<key>ATY,IOSpaceOffset</key>

<integer>0x00300000</integer>

                

<key>ATY,VRAM,MemSize</key>

<integer>0x00000100</integer>

 

6. Now save and exit the file.

 

Chapter 2: Removing cache files, copying files, and repairing permissions

1. Go to System/Library/Caches and delete the com.apple.kernelcaches folder thats in there.

2. Go to System/Library/ and delete the Extensions.mkext file

3. Go to System/Library/Extensions and delete the caches folder thats in there.

5. Copy the edited ATIinject.kext to your System/Library/Extensions. (Leopard might complain that the kext was improperly installed, ignore this)

6. Open terminal, after each line, hit the enter button.

CODE

 

sudo -s

type your password

chmod -R 755 //After 755 hit the spacebar, drag and drop ATIinject.kext from Extensions folder into terminal

chown -R root:wheel //After wheel hit the spacebar, drag and drop ATIinject.kext from Extensions folder into terminal

 

7. That's IT..!! restart and enjoy..!! Gud Luck..!!

 

 

 

 

I'm Using:

Intel Pentium Dual Core 1.8Ghz

Asus P5GC-MX / 1333

DDR2 1GB Kingston PC5300

ATI Radeon X1650XT 256 DDR3

Harddisk Seagate 160GB SATA

PSU 500Watt
