    Solving NVIDIA Driver Install & Loading Problems

    Just quickly: I had problem 4 under 17,1. (Actually, I had the text behind the screen still showing, on some runs; something about text halted or scroll stopped or something, followed by about 5 two-digit codes with labels. Also continual hard disc activity. Anyway… .) I swapped a HDMI cable...

    14.2 vs 17,1 — NVidia

    I am deciding whether to go with 14.2 or 17,1. I had settled on 17,1, on the grounds that it reflected my hardware better, when I read, in jaymonkey’s post on iMessage, that your hardware choice should be a function of your video card. Is this a compromise, or does video card (NVidia — 14,2)...

    Checking Serial Number

    I just did a serial number check in the described way. When I tried it again a little while later, I got the error 403 Forbidden. Now, I am afraid to try it again (at least from the same machine), in case they are taking note of the number one enters.

    Mac side of my hackintosh keeps freezing

    Sorry for the delay. My machine was already freezing arbitrarily, but it got much worse when I had corruption of my hard disc. You would be just doing a standard First Aid — click on your boot volume (or the whole hard disc, if you will) and click First Aid. (I think that, if there are...

    2nd Ethernet Port on Z170-UD5

    GA-Z170X-UD5: the ethernet drivers are AppleIGB and IntelMausiEthernet. (I found this out easily when I was setting it [Z170X-UD5] up originally, but recently I looked for it, and neither the manual nor the website page for this model seems to have the port information. Actually, I might have...

    Software Problem — Freezing, since Disc Corruption

    I feel a bit better just because you took the trouble to read it all! Thanks! Since you mentioned it... one of the events was me ruining my BIOS by (foolishly) trying to upgrade it from Windows. (I imagined they knew what they were doing!) I now have the most recent version before the...

    Mac side of my hackintosh keeps freezing

    Does it freeze if you do not do anything? I have a similar-sounding problem, although it sounds like it is probably ultimately different. Just in case, you could check your hard disc (e.g. with Disc Utility).

    Software Problem — Freezing, since Disc Corruption

    Hi all! ______ Meta-Comments My machine is now working, but the root question of why the arbitrary freezing (without anything in the crash log) — including in the Sierra installer and in an installation complete but not set up (e.g. user account) (not to mention a re-installed El Capitan...

    Name the Next macOS (10.14)

    I like the line of thinking. (MacOS Two Towers?)

    Name the Next macOS (10.14)

    How about a picture, anyone? (Maybe with that narrow depth-of-field effect to make it look big.)

    Is it Safe to Reinstall the OS using the Setup USB?

    [I guess this is a stupid question, but I have just lost confidence in the whole picture and I can't think straight about it any more. Sorry. Also... I know this is not technically the right place for this question, but it seemed like a good fit.] Background My machine has fallen over...

    [Solved] El Capitan detects wrong amount of total RAM and RAM slots

    Re Azimuth1 “you have to populate EVERY SINGLE field in SMBIOS part”. I know I am very literal, but… what do you do if you do not *have* four DIMMs? (I have 2), please? Thank you in advance.

    [GUIDE] Remove extra Clover BIOS boot entries & prevent further problems

    While I’m going past: from memory: you do need to select the NVidia web driver in the NVidia thinggy (Control Panel) in System Preferences. Sorry if this is wrong or irrelevant or you have already fixed it, etc. .

    Are you running an old Sandy Bridge system?

    [Please pardon my over-use of parentheses.] Mine is similar to the one in the first post — GA-Z68XP-UD4… RAID5… I think it is a 2600 (non-K) offhand. As others have noted, Moore’s law is well and truly dead for CPUs; my i7 is about as fast is a new one (as opposed to being — what is it? —...
