Dell 630M need external monitor to get Login windows display

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have successfully installed the 10.4.1 image in my Dell 630M notebook.

In order to use the 1280x800 display resolution, I have follow the guide to modified the files

1. AppleIntel915.kext

2. AppleIntelIntegratedGraphics.kext


I have changed info.plist 2582 to 2592 accordingly and I able to get the 1280x800 resolution.


Problem : When I boot up the MacOSX on my notebook I only get the blue screen and can not get the login windows and I need to press the power button to do a force poweroff my notebook.

To get the display correctly I need to connect a external monitor then I will get the display correctly but this is very troublesome.


I will appreciated if anyone can teach me to solve this problem and to get the login window display on my notebook corretly

I am having this same issue on an Inspiron B130. I can get it to boot with an external monitor plugged. Otherwise I am at a blue screen and the machine will not respond.

Seem like this is a bug for Dell notebook display. Have you look for any workaround or solution?


I am searching but I have not found a solution yet.

I have the same problem too on a m140. However, I can get it to work in safe mode but the problem is without soundcard support I cant hear a thing and guess on when to hit the shift key. I get it work once every four times.


Is there any switch to get into safe mode like -v -x etc ?
