ATI 5650m QE/CI Issues

Recommended Posts


I have a Sony Vaio VPCEB36FA with an ATI 5650m which doesn't run at it's native resolution of 1920 x 1080. Here are the steps i tried to make it work :


1) Forced EDID

2) Tried Various AtiConfig personalities (Using AtiConfig=Galoga gave me full QE/CI on an external HDMI Display, all others gave me a black screen)

3) Used LoadVBios=Yes 

4) Tried using Clover to do all the same as above 


It's actually very weird because i got full QE/CI once on the laptop display  using LoadVBios=Yes but then on a reboot the text became very fuzzy and illegible, after that either the display was blank or blurred at full res. 

I have attached screenshots of when i got full QE/CI and when i booted with Galoga. 


Any help would be appreciated :)

I have to write my EDID into the DisplayID-717 file and enable Force EDID option in clover right ?

Ok @Deepak Tried as you said with Clover :




1) On booting with injectati, force edid and vloadbios the display fires up at full res but extremely malformed text ( i noted that there were 2 black lines on the left of the display, if they could be offset to the correct place then, the display would work fine).

2) On booting with injectati and vloadbios, i got a screen with stripes and nothing was visible

3) On booting with vloadbios only, the computer would just not log in, just display a spinning wheel and crash.

4) I couldn't get the computer to start so i used safe mode and graphicsenabler=no  and in verbose (it still didn't start) but i got some interesting screenshots


Screenshot 1 : The display in full res and very clear flashes for a second and then disappears.

Screenshot 2 : The verbose output after the flash

Tried your kexts with Chameleon and with LoadVBios ON/OFF and with EDID inserted in DisplayID-717 but to no avail :(


EDID injection gives a consistent full QE/CI but is very very blurry and malformed. 


The most interesting thing is that with every boot, the screen gets more blurred and the no. of black lines on the extreme left (barely visible and thin line) screen increase in the number corresponding with the number of boots ?! (i think this line increase the offset which is why it's blurred but i have no idea have no idea why it's doing so..)

    • Hello, friends, I need your help. I am using  Motherboard: Asus H81M-CS Processor:  Intel Core i3-4130 Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4400 I connected monitor via VGA port.   Everything is working great. Only issue right now I am having is graphics with VGA Port. Can any one suggest me to solve this issue?
    • It's because when you update, the kernel is replaced & so are the kexts. You need to either know how to use Terminal to copy the files after booting into your USB OR hook up your Start Disk Hard Drive to another Hack or Mac & copy over the proper kernel to System/Library/Kernels/ & also use kextwizard to install the kexts required as well & then repair cache. It's not that complicated if you have another Mac or Hack(intosh) to connect your drive to. There are some tutorials online. I'm by no means a pro at this at all, but I couldn't believe no one had replied to anyone here. I'm actually in the exact same situation, just finished updating my Yosemite Zone 10.10 to 10.10.5 through AppStore & it won't boot back in, then I remembered when I did this last time I had to connect my HD to another mac & copy over files, but I can't remember exact files so I came here to look for them & found this thread. I have been successful in getting an old MSI Platinum35 mobo with the 771/775 mod & Xeon x5460 with AMD 6850 running Sierra. I have been successful getting a newer MSI A88XM Gaming Mobo with x4 760k & AMD 6670 running Mavericks, then Yosemite, then High Sierra, and recently tested Sierra & it worked too. One thing though is that with Sierra & High Sierra the screen flickered different colors & I needed to download a thing called SwitchResZ & change the setting from "Billions of Colors" to "Millions of Colors" & it fixed it both times, even after I uninstalled it, the screen flickering was gone,.. So I have been through a few different processes (not including the updates like 10.10 to 10.10.5) But I am the farthest thing from a pro. Just followed tutorials, googled  & used distros, I think DeeKay was first one for Mavericks, then Yosemite Zone, Sierra Zone, & finally High Sierra Zone. But my digi 002r worked on all with the AVID 003 family 11.1.3 driver, except when it came to high sierra. For some reason it has sync issues with Midi/audio. Says something about not recognizing clock speed of 43,121Khz or something (cuz it should be 44.1Khz, or 48Khz etc) But it only happens on High Sierra. On Yosemite I had to do a trick cuz the play bar's timing was off, to fix it I went into bios & changed my multiplier from 100 to 103 so instead of my cpu running at 3.6Ghz, it was like 3.9Ghz. But for some reason that fixed it & Yosemite was stable, rarely (if ever) did it crash. But Sierra crashes all the time so I can't make music on it anymore, for some reason I don't think it was like this at first...maybe something I installed. Only reason why I changed was to keep up with Logic X updates. My Sierra build is up to date with Logic X 10.4 & Digi 002r runs great (11.1.3 driver) but like I said it crashes alot & I don't know why. So my thought was to return to Yosemite 10.10 & update to 10.10.5 like I did b4 & downgrade Logic X to 10.3 or 10.2.4(can't remember). So I got to find those files & instructions again to put the proper kernel & texts back that the update erased. That's what ya'll need to do as well. When I find it I will come back & edit my post or just post a new one.
