    Upgrade to El Capitan - picture blinks to black (and often comes back frozen)

    certain USB accessories causing freezes

    I have turned of XHCI mode in my BIOS settings. I figure it's the USB3.0 that's causing the problems in general, whether it be in handoff or device recognition, or who knows what. But being that I don't own any 3.0 devices, for the time being I will see how stable the system is when all ports...

    certain USB accessories causing freezes

    So frustrating, right? To be so close to having a perfectly working machine only to have the more important accessories off limits. Bah!

    certain USB accessories causing freezes

    I have a mostly stable system (barring a few issues with sleep)...as long as my backup external HDD and Logitech c920 webcam aren't plugged into USB. The issue seems to be worst with the 3.0 ports, but I have gotten a freeze from the webcam in a 2.0 port. Sometimes it will freeze immediately...

    Z87N-Wifi freezes frequently when two DIMMs present

    24 hours of uptime! I will need to find if I need to do disk repairs to the external HDD or if it's a USB problem, but I at least know I can have a perfectly stable machine if need be. I also fixed the freezing overnight that was occuring. According to the console, it was waking and doing some...

    Z87N-Wifi freezes frequently when two DIMMs present

    Read in another thread by a user with very similar problems that people are having trouble with continually connected external HDDs. Especially Western Digital ones. And wouldn't you know, I have a WD My Passport 500GB external HDD plugged in for time machine backups. We'll see how it works out...

    Yosemite 10.10 random freezing.

    Hmm? Can you elaborate on this? I have been trying to find out what is causing my freezes, and have not heard this before. I have a constantly plugged-in external HDD for time machine backups, but I never thought to check stability without it. I will have to test this when I'm home tonight. The...

    Z87N-Wifi freezes frequently when two DIMMs present

    Thanks for your responses, guys. It appears the Bluetooth is not the problem, as having it unplugged and using a wired mice all day, I'm still plagued by the same amount of freezing. I reset my bios to default and reset the minimal changes needed (IGP enabled and set as default, disable vd-T)...

    Z87N-Wifi freezes frequently when two DIMMs present

    The freezes got worse after plugging in the GMYLE bluetooth adapter I got from Amazon last friday. Before that I only had about 2 in a week of normal use. Afterward, I just realized, it has been 5-10 a day. Has anybody experienced system freezes when using the suggested GMYLE bluetooth USB...

    Bluetooth isssue mouse pointer resets to corner of screen GA-Z87MX-D3H - i7-4770K

    Just had this problem after having my GMYLE bluetooth adapter for 3 days. I popped out the USB adapter, and put it back in and it sorted it out fine. We'll see how long it goes before another screwup. If it's once a week or something, I can deal with it. Any more than that and it's gonna be a...

    [Guide] Airport - PCIe Half Mini v2

    I popped in the Atheros AR5BHB92 (9280) into my build tonight. Signal was weak at first, but I've moved the antenna from my Z87N-wifi mobo from behind my monitor and it now has full signal strength. However, I am pulling in dismal speeds, 2-2.5Mb/s, when my other devices are getting the correct...

    [Guide] Airport - PCIe Half Mini v2

    I got myself an Atheros 9280 to replace the card on my Z87N-wifi mobo thinking that it would be plug and play. I can't exactly understand the steps layed out in this guide, nor trust myself to carry them out if I did. I have read that the 9280 card I got is natively supported for Wifi without...

    Word to the wise: Gigabyte Z87N-Wifi mobo- DVI-I port not supported

    i actually did just that out of desperation, because I'm inexperienced and clover raises the bar a bit for how much know-how you need. It proved problematic because in order to mount the install dmg as bootable with the terminal script you have to have a relatively recent OS X. I was working on...

    Word to the wise: Gigabyte Z87N-Wifi mobo- DVI-I port not supported

    I thought I would make a nice PSA for people looking to make a build using the Gigabyte Z87N-wifi motherboard. I am an artist, and use a Wacom Cintiq tablet display on a daily basis. The cintiq's standard output is DVI-I. The Z87N-Wifi's only non-HDMI display port is DVI-I. A match made in...

    Clover Yosemite install - not creating a bootable installation on SSD

    I will also add that when I created a new UniBeast USB to see if switching back would be any luck, the Yosemite install I did through clover was visible to boot to using the USB. But seeing as how I was dealing with chameleon now, I could not boot properly, and was met with KPs. Most likely due...

    Easy Yosemite Clover USB Installer

    I'm not certain, but if you're using the newest clover, or the one that OP linked to in a later post, I believe kexts are injected by defaul, hence there only being the 'without kexts' option to choose. If you need to, go into the boot options menu in clover and add needed flags, like -x if the...

    Clover Yosemite install - not creating a bootable installation on SSD

    This is a readout from diskutil list in terminal. Can anybody tell me what I am seeing below the first two disks? What are those, and am I safe to get rid of them when trying fresh install. I want to approach it as if I'm just starting and only the blank SSD and clover USB are present.

    Clover Yosemite install - not creating a bootable installation on SSD

    Ok, maybe I should have mentioned this before but I thought it was a fluke. During the process, at one point I lost all recognition of all drives from my mobo. I also lost USB support, just about everything. I had to pop the mobo CMOS battery out to revert back to standard settings to solve the...

    Clover Yosemite install - not creating a bootable installation on SSD

    Well that's strange, and I can't really offer much help, inexperienced as I am. I will say that for my situation, the SSD worked fine for installation of OS X through chameleon. But no matter what I did, I couldn't get graphics working through chameleon, hence why I tried Clover. Then I try...
