GPU not Recognised; Nvidia GT 740 SC
3 3

3 posts in this topic

Hello H-Zone community,

I have built my first ever Hackintosh and am very close to finishing the process of coding it and working out the kinks. I have found kexts to fixing USB3, audio, wifi, etc. however, I am having a very difficult time having my GPU recognized by my OSX. This leads to a glitchy mouse, stretched screen always in 1280x1024, bad graphics glitches, and my HDMI monitor not getting video signal (VGA does). I will provide hardware and whatever else needed upon request.


MB: Sabertooth x79

GPU: NVidia Geforce GT 740 sc (Evga 4gb, GDDR5)

CPU: Intel i7 4930K

Ram: GeSkill Ripjaw 32gb DDR3


I am running Yosemity 10.10.2 and have the most recent web driver from NVidia loaded for mac. I have also had the most luck programming Clover Bootloader but am unsure why it is having a hard time with the GPU. Down below will have my clover .config and maybe someone can shed some light on what I am missing


Thanks for the help!

Yes, I am having the same problem. I can't find a kext anywhere. The recommended Nvidia Web Driver doesn't work either. People say "GraphicsEnabler=No" works, but that doesn't work for me either. About this Mac says "NVIDIA chip model 5MB", as it obviously shouldn't. Someone please help. Hardware listed below:

PRE-BUILT!!! Dell Vostro 220

MOBO: G45M03

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 @ 2.66GHz (Will soon be Xeon E3110)

RAM: 4GB DDR2 800MHz

HDD: Seagate 250GB Sata 3GB/s (Will soon be 3TB Hitachi Sata 6GB/s)

GPU: EVGA GeForce GT 740 Superclocked 1GB GDDR5

same for me with this :


CPU: i7-5820K, 3,3 Ghz, 15Mb Cache

RAM: 16GB DDR4 2666MHz


GPU: EVGA GeForce GT 740 Superclocked (EVGA)

Running with El Capitan 10.11.3 and Clover, about this Mac says "NVIDIA chip model 3MB", stretched screen always in 1360x768, no image on vlc… I guess I tried everything…

Please please if anyone had a solution…
