I have tried several config.plist but I can not recognize hd520, you could share your config.plist, I have this ....
Here are my config.list, which is bigger in size. You may try it. The screenshot shows kexts installed.

P.S.: I tried to install IntelGraphicsFixup.kext but it doesn't work. So you may try replacing it with AppleBacklightFixup.kext first, then move to the config.plist if it doesn't work. (ref: [Guide] Laptop backlight control using AppleBacklightFixup.kext by RehabMan)

AppleBacklightFixup.kext and intelgraphicsFixup is deprecated, use WhateverGreen latest version

Thank you! WhateverGreen works well on my laptop, by the way.

Hello again, thanks for sharing the config, the truth is that I do not know what I have wrong, I have been testing several options and there is no way to achieve graphical acceleration, it may be because in my hp I can not configure the BIOS in 64 the dvmt .
regards
