BenQ P52 Drivers Pack

Recommended Posts

Good news for all BenQ P52 users with Leopard 10.5.2 ( older maybe as well ? ) No matter which model you`ve got ( p52, p52eg etc ).

In pack You`ll find drivers for graphics and sound - work is still in progress, any help will be nice. Of course all files in the pack are from the forum, little modified and with few "tricks" - no copyrights violated.


1) Ati Mobility Radeon X1600 0x71c5 - GFX : delete all your kexts




use Kexthelper to install 3 kexts from pack - reboot, and enjoy. When you finish your work with PC - delete those 3 installed kext, and install them again. Now you can reboot or shutdown. If you dont "re-install" it, screen will get glitches - but even then, reinstalling it will help.

You dont have to provide EDID etc. We have compared EDIDs from two laptops P52 - they`re the same. Now you can change your resolution to 1280x800. We`re working on QE/CI right now.


2) Realtek HD Audio ALC262 - Audio - work discovered by GNG - use AppleHDA patcher 1.20 (thanks for Taruga for his tool :P ), install with codec included in pack. Restart - you get no sound now. Run kexthelper, and install AppleHDA.kext and ALCinject.kext prom the pack. Sound will be on now - headphones\speakers working.


We still try to get it to work better, so if anyone has better solutions - post please :)

Thanks for all kexts, patchers etc. authors.


The pack is : HERE

Hi ! Thanks for the work.. Just wanted to say i have a P52 too, gave up installing os X on it long time ago, never got QE working on tiger.

Anyway i would have to get a really wife-proof install to get testing again. Anyway, great laptop, good that someone is working on bringing it to the compatibility list.
