Laptop: Acer Aspire S3-951 i5 - MS2346 / S3-951-2464G34iss.
Currently running 10.10.3 on Clover, with sound, trackpad, keyboard etc working, using a new AR5B95 internal WiFi adapter & toledaAPRT's AirPort method.

So I've followed this guide - http://www.tonymacx86.com/laptop-compatibility/148068-guide-acer-aspire-s3-951-yosemite-fully-fonctionnal.html from start to finish, & used all the attached & recommended files.
I installed from a bootable 10.10.0 (which I've used successfully on other machines), installed the latest Clover boot loader, with all the provided settings, files & patches.
I've got everything working, except for the internal (built-in) display...

External HDMI works 100% fine, and the 13" Acer screen boots fine, displays bios & Clover perfectly, but once Clover has finished loading the OS (once the Apple logo & progress bar disappears) the screen becomes distorted & split into 4 mirrored windows across the screen.

Anyone have any idea what the issue could be?

I've tried booting in Safe Mode & Verbose. It's also happening when booting from the installation USB.
I read that HD3000 graphics sometimes requires a custom EDID injection? How would I go about doing this, if it's required for me?
And why would my setup be any different from all the successful setups here, when its the same machine?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Post ioreg: http://www.tonymacx86.com/audio/58368-guide-how-make-copy-ioreg.html. Please, use the IORegistryExplorer v2.1 attached to the post! DO NOT reply with an ioreg from any other version of IORegistryExplorer.app.

Please provide complete details in your profile/signature
(Profile/Settings link in upper right corner of this site)

System: manufacturer/model + bootloader(Clover/Chameleon/Chimera)
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
System: HP ProBook 4540s (Clover)
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx), and graphics capabilities. For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.

I've found out what the issue was.

I reinstalled FakeSMC, FakeSMC Plugins & FakeSMC HW Monitor from Multibeast 7.2.0
Repaired permissions & rebooted.
Found that "Inject Intel" was ticked, in Clover Config - Graphics.
I unticked it, rebooted & everything booted & displayed perfectly.

Thanks very much for the support & quick responses :thumbup:
