You have to use the boot flag nvda_drv=1. If you use that you are using the drivers. The preference pane will still show OS X default drivers but that is just cosmetic.So i got the driver installed but now it still defaults to the apple driver and states the NVIDIA driver is not compatible with this version of OS X... and I do have the right version WebDriver-340.02.02f02 for 14D136
View attachment 135019 i actually got in touch with NVIDIA tech support last night and they said the driver was still no good...not sure if I believe them, or if he just gave up. I can say he disappeared on the chat for a good 15 minutes...so take that for what its worth
That's fine. You can disable smart quotes by launching Text Edit without an open document and going to its preferences, then just uncheck the box.These steps definitely helped me get my Gigabyte GTX 960 G1 Gaming video card working!
Slim Jim, with your approval (and credit to you) I'd like to make a web page with this info but also a breakdown on how to add one's own non-Mac Pro model without the smart quotes. Also, I'd like to upload modified drivers where the "0" is changed to a "1" in the third scenario, for each of the listed drivers.
Thank you, I didn't know the 740 was a rebadged 640...
Good news. Now, don't forget to sacrifice a chicken to the computer gods each day....However, as I wrote, no nVidia driver was installed. The only driver was whatever Apple provided in OS X 10.10.3. And it works fine; again as I wrote, 32.1 frames per second on "Heaven" benchmark software. The anomaly was that the computer failed to shut down, as mentioned in my original post. The difference was card in vs. card out. Out, computer shut down. In, computer would not shut down. Didn't matter how the BIOS was configured.
Problem seems to have disappeared just today; don't know why.
