    Solving NVIDIA driver install problems

    How frustrating is this!

    Ha. So I made the changes to the plist file and now the computer freezes on the grey apple screen. In the past it would get to that stage and then the display went to sleep, it doesn't do that anymore, just freezes!

    If your screen goes to sleep then you need to use solution for problem #4. Put you flags back the way it was and use guide #4 from this thread.

    Thanks for the info, what if I am using MacPro3,1. Do I need to change that first?

    Thanks again.

    I use MacPro6.1 and it worked out for me. I had same problem with monitors going to sleep. You need to play with flags. Can you load your system with GTX970 using flag nv_disable=1? If so then try different combinations of flags related to graphics. Also try rebuild kernel cache.

    Solving NVIDIA driver install problems

    Am I the only one who gets a KP going to the new f03 drivers? It says my current driver is out of date and I need to update, but when i do it KP's and I have to roll back via time machine to get system back again.

    I'm using a 560ti Geforce. Any help appreciated.

    So a bit more playing around today. I managed to get it to boot OK with the following command:

    -x -v nvda_drv=1

    I believe this boots into safe mode.

    However the screen looks like the attached photo with a number of red squares on the screen! I never see anything like this when I boot into Windows so I don't think it's the card itself.

    Any ideas, I've googled but not found anything yet.

    Thanks,

    Solving NVIDIA driver install problems

    I having a problem with the Nvidia web driver, this is my first attempt to install the driver. After install, I can boot as normal, them when I choose the Nvidia web drives in the menu bar they ask my password for nvidia driver manager to make changes, I authorize the computer, them my hackintosh freeze. When I reboot I can boot as normal but my hackintosh is still using the regular OSX default driver. Does anyone have any clue?

    PS: I am using the last version of the driver: 346.01.02f03
    I am using mac os 10.10.3

    Try booting with UseKernelCache=No. I have the same problem, if I use -x it works but that is sluggish safe mode. UseKernelCache=No boots normal for me but takes longer. See my post here http://www.tonymacx86.com/graphics/...web-driver-gtx-750-w-o-usekernelcache-no.html

    Solving NVIDIA driver install problems

    CUDA is an ensemble of drivers and libraries that allows to do general purpose computations (i.e. not necessarily graphics-related) on Nvidia GPU. If you heard of OpenCL, that is similar, only a it more open and favored by Apple. It's great for scientific computing, and some image/video related computations, as well as 3D rendering.
