    Hey guys

    After playing around for afew days trying to get my system all up and running, ive got everything how i want it, with exceptions to the Graphics. I can only boot up in safe mode as i get a KP with the Nvidia drivers.

    I googled the KP to find that if i removed the geforce, nv*, ge* kexts i can boot up normally. The problem being is that im stuck in 1 resolution with basically next to nothing for a graphics card!

    the graphics update released by apple is no good, as that KP when trying to boot up in normal or safe mode, trying to delete the kexts meantions above has no change, still KP

    is there anyone that can help me??

    edit : anothing thing is that when trying to install SL i had to use the iboot supported disc as i could use the nvidia one as that KP when trying to load the installation screen, even when tried in safe mode

    Yup drivers installed, still same problem.

    What's happening once I've update to 10.6.4 and installed the drivers is that it gets to the boots screen, it's loading up then the monitor comes up "no signal" and goes blank. The pc doesn't look like it's doing anything.

    I've tried booting up with -v boot it goes blank screen before it comes up with any KP, just goes just after it loads up the audio kexts, but I can't see that being the problem as they work fine!

    Edit: boot up with -s and deleted the kexts again, booted backup, but back to square one, stuck in the one crap resolution

    Anyone help?

    I had a similar problem with my GTX-470 after installing the latest graphics update from apple. I reinstalled the 10.6.4 update to overwrite the newer graphics stuff and then reinstalled my fermi drivers and then everything was fine.

    Please do the nVidia drivers last.

    install

    update to 10.6.4

    then install nVidia drivers and boot ;)

    Can you get it to boot without kp when using a standard card like 9800?
