    Mac OS X 10.7.3 Supplemental Update - Time Machine Fixes

    Mine worked fine; I also got an update for "Application Loader" via Software Update. I tried to post a new thread, but "New Topic" isn't available for me in this particular board.

    Mac OS X 10.7.3 Update - The Official Thread (Desktops)

    Combo update from 10.7.2 followed by a reboot. I ended up with a "Still waiting for root device" error. This happened the last time I updated as well and I can't remember how I fixed it. I did disable onboard ethernet (saw that in an earlier post). I do not have a SleepEnabler.kext. I've tried...

    Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update - The Official Thread

    Installed 10.6.8 update and stepped away from the computer to walk the dog. It either rebooted or the video cut out and my screen was unresponsive when I came back. I did not get a chance to run Multibeast immediately following the update before reboot. Stupid me, I didn't consider unplug/plug...

    USB3 no longer working.

    I've had some luck with experimenting when I plug the USB 3 device into port. For example, if I boot with my external USB 3.0 card reader attached, my system won't recognize it. If I plug the USB 3 reader in after boot, it works just fine as long as I don't EJECT the media in the Finder. If I...

    USB 3.0 Card Reader sleeping

    I have a Delkin USB 3.0 Universal Memory Reader ( I've got it hooked up and am using the hacked LaCie drivers. It works, but I have to plug the reader in with no card after I boot, then insert the card to get it to work. If...

    Evga GT 240 512mb card running slow?

    Same issue with a 1GB eVGA card. Compiled nvclock on my system and ran some checks. It appears there are 2 different performance levels built into the card, likely to help with power saving. Running at MacPro5,1 (in my com.Apple.boot.plist file) my NovaBench graphics score is 47 (no...

    Mac OS X 10.6.5 Update - The Official Thread

    I ran the 10.6.5 combo and the USB3 kext. The only thing I needed to roll back was my audio. Everything works fine in 64 bit, except for sleep. The video turns off, but the computer doesn't hibernate, instead leaving the fans churning. Changing my sleep mode to S1 instead of S3 (in the BIOS)...

    Apple releases Snow Leopard Graphics Update 1.0

    After the graphics update I got my GTS 250 working using GraphicsEnabler, and using DVI to DVI. DVI to HDMI did not work. I get 1920x1080 on my monitor (my monitor is 16x9), and Front Row and chess both work, and Dashboard does the "splash". My Cinebench score is abysmal though: 7.54fps and...

    Apple releases Snow Leopard Graphics Update 1.0

    My GTS 250 never worked in 10.6.4. I'd be interested if anyone got it working with this update as well...

    How To: Build your own "Real" Airport Card

    I picked up the adapter off of ebay for about $15 shipped and bought the airport card from B&H Photo for $50. Another $65 well spent; thanks for sharing the idea and instructions! I think I paid about $50 for my Netgear WN311B and it would drop the signal all the time due to interference with...

    Custom system (mid-range)

    I used the DSDT from here: ... pic=220199 That's a Rev 2.0 specific thread. The DSDT works like a champ, sleep and all. The only thing that may have changed from my posts on this forum is: 1) I gave up on the GTS 250 in favor of an ATI 4650 2) I used...

    Greetings - Ready to pull the trigger! Come see.

    I have the GA-X58A-UD3R (rev 2). Once I found a DSDT.aml and got my kexts straightened out, I got everything working on it (including the built-in networking, but I use wifi). Sleep and audio both work. Video: I had no luck with a GTS 250 which is supposed to be similar (a newer version I...

    Custom system (mid-range)

    Just a quick update: I reinstalled the kexts to fix the sound and I think it works now (still no speakers, but the volume slider isn't greyed out now) Netgear WN311B = crap. From what I'm reading it doesn't seem to be able to connect to a 5ghz network. I'm having crazy dropping issues which...

    ATI 4650 display size?

    Have you tried the instructions by kushninja: viewtopic.php?p=23505 I have a 1GB 4650, and editing the kexts as noted in that thread along with using two cables to connect my card enabled me to get my card/monitor working 100%.

    Custom system (mid-range)

    If you tell me what programs I need to run, I'll try and run them for comparison. I'm not sure what I can do to check the 100% CPU/RAM. I do know that I compiled ruby the other day and it was done in what seemed like a minute. It was noticeably faster than my MacPro Core2Duo (as it should be)...

    Ati HD 4650- Going crazy!

    Beats me. I wonder if it has anything to do with the monitor requirements? I'd be surprised if we both had the same monitor though (I have an Asus VH242H). As much as I wish I knew the "why", I'm just glad it works :D

    Ati HD 4650- Going crazy!

    When I read you got it working by hooking both cables up I thought you were crazy. But, it works. I found that switching the cables around I can make the DVI port active (good for me, because my monitor goes blue when the HDMI sleeps, the monitor never shuts off). But, I've gotta have both...

    10.6.4 Evga GTS250 Not Recognized

    That sucks :( I tried the DVI-D cable--no change. Using "GraphicsEnabler=yes" I get the same thing--it shows 32MB of RAM and just says "GPU" for the type.

    10.6.4 Evga GTS250 Not Recognized

    Are you using a DVI to HDMI connector/cable to hook up to your TV? That's how I'm hooking up to my monitor. I've tried everything under the sun--EFI, Injectors, DSDT edits, etc. As I'm looking into this and I look through the system profile information and such it almost looks to me like...

    10.6.4 Evga GTS250 Not Recognized

    Same thing here. I've tried a couple other things, but I get what looks like 1080p using the installer. I tried using the EFI injection (? I think that's what it's called) using two separate strings--one I created and one someone had posted. My string got me what looked like a 1080p screen...
