Hey Guys,
My laptop is HP Pavilion 15 e066tx. I installed EI capitan last month. It looks very well at running and working. I used VoodooPS2Controller.kext and replaced the brightness adjusting shortcut by PS2K in the dsdt.aml (My shortcut to decrease brightness is Fn+F2, and increase is Fn+F3). But recently I find a very serious problem. When I decrease or increase brightness using the shortcuts about 10 times, the keyboard and trackpad will be not available, while the USB mouse is normal. If I run a large application, the laptop will halt. If I shut down the laptop by using the Finder menu, it show shut down dialog and soon the screen becomes black. I have to press the power button to make it shut down.I reinstalled the system several times. I find the problem even exists in the new system.
What's the reason and how to solve it? Please help me. Thanks.
The attachment below is the dsdt I picked up by AIDA64 in Windows system an the clover config.

Post ioreg as ZIP: 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.

And output from:
Code:
kextstat|grep -y acpiplat
kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu
kextstat|grep -y applelpc
kextstat|grep -y applehda
Also, post EFI/Clover folder as ZIP (press F4 at main Clover screen before collecting). Please eliminate 'themes' directory, especially if you have an overabundance of themes installed. Provide only EFI/Clover, not the entire EFI folder.

Also post output of:
Code:
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
Compress all files as ZIP. Do not use external links. Attach all files using site attachments only.

I read the guide and installed IntelBacklight.kext by Easykext Utility. I patched my dsdt which I added the graphic info from ssdt with "graphics_Haswell_0a260006.txt" and "graphics_PNLF_haswell.txt". But the problem still exists. I have no idea to solve it. Can you give me some advices?
The attachment blew contains my clover without theme, dsdt from Windows, the IOReg file extacted booting without dsdt and the resaults of commands executived in terminal.
Thanks.

Did you patch your EC methods as per guide?

IntelBacklight.kext requires only "Brightness Fix".

Start over. Read/follow the guide carefully and exactly as written.

Hi, buddy. I have the same HP model of E066tx as yours. How can I do to patch EC methods at _Q10 & _Q11?
I don't quite understand moderator's explanation. Can you show me how? I will be appreciated.
