resolution problem
2 2

Question

first thanks for your great work.

it was my first time to install hackintosh ever and it worked fine really good jobs but,

i have a problem with the screen resolution:

my vga card gigabyte gtx 660 (non ti) and it read fine in the system information,  but i can't set my monitor resolution 1366x768

tried: 

1-boot option "Graphics Mode" = "1366x768x32" and

2-put it in org.chameleon.Boot with :

<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1366x768x32</string>
3- in theme:
<key>screen_width</key>
<string>1366</string>
<key>screen_height</key>
<string>768</string>
 
checked my VESA:
doesn't have 1366x768.

@ahmedanis03@gmail.com I'm assuming you tried booting with GraphicsEnabler=Yes

Anyway, here is the official drivers from Nvidia for your video card : Download

@Devoinc Thanks for your answer

about GraphicsEnabler i cannot boot without setting it to no.

about driver 

 

No driver update is needed for this system. This system already has drivers which support NVIDIA GeForce and Quadro Mac OS X edition cards.

@ahmedanis03@gmail.com This card is natively supported by OSX. Are you getting full QE/CI ?

Try this flag also at boot nva-drv=0

@Devonic

QE/CI: yes ripple effects/zoom in, etc.

about boot flag tried but nothing happened.

 

i even get available  resolutions  up to 2304x1728, this is the maximum res of my vga card for VGA monitors.

but can't find my monitor resolution 1366x768.

i start to think the problem is in my VGA/DVI convertor but according to this i am connecting it to the dvi-i socket,and it works fine in windows/linux(currently ubuntu).

my monitor samsung sync master 1930N.

@ahmedanis03@gmail.com That can actually be a problem.. why not get a VGA cable itself ?

It's good that you're getting full QE/CI.

I think all you need to do is force a custom resolution using SwitchResX
