Help please,

Can anyone help with black screen after the white Apple screen on Dell Inspiron 1720 with Snow Leopard retail install.

I can hear the intro dvd playing in the background, but nothing on the screen :banghead:.

my spec is taken from a screenshot in windows before the Snow Leopard install.

The install has completed successfully, as I could see it during the install, just got this black screen now post install boot.

Your Graphics is Intel GMA965 which isn't supported in Snow Leopard. Only GMA950 or x3100 is supported Black screen is a Graphics Issue.

Thank you,

Is there any way around it, do you know what OX S I would need to install to have compatibility,

Cheers

There is no compatibility for GMA965. No Mac has never had that graphics so no point in trying.

Ok,

Thanks again, I thought that I would get around it as ellnic seems to have done it with his spec -

Intel Core 2 Duo T7500
GM965 Chipset
Bluetooth (BCM92045MD)
Wifi (BCM4311KFBG)
Nvidia 8600M GT

I have asked how but ellnic hasn't picked it up yet.

trust me to have the wrong setup.

Thanks again for your help.

Does that laptop have Nvidia 8600M GT? or just Intel GMA965 Graphics?

would you have any idea what I would do with the files that ellnic uploaded -

Files needed for Dell Inspiron 1720.

I have downloaded them, but dont know how to use them.

Do I need the Snow Leopard to boot first or can I run them from a pen drive.

You can restore the Retail Snow Leopard install DVD to your Pen Drive but you will need the Kernel from the iBoot CD. Does the laptop have Nvidia 8600M GT? or just Intel GMA965 Graphics?
