Hello Guys,

I've successfully installed Mavericks but getting graphics artifacts,

How to get rid of it? Why are they coming anyway?

Both HD3000 & Nvidia GT540M are detected and I'm getting graphics acceleration too but due to artifacts can't do anything....

Plz Help...!

@pranay619 As previously stated numerous times, switchable graphics one of the things OSX can't handle (in this case the HD 3000 and the NVIDIA GT540M). You must focus on getting only the HD 3000 working because most of the times, only integrated graphics are going to work. For a start try removing NVidia and ATI kexts and boot with IGPEnabler=Yes GraphicsEnabler=No

 

Additionally if you are still getting artifacts/ weird lines, you might want to consider injecting your EDID.

Hello guys,

 

I installed 10.9.3 on dell xps 15 l502x i5 2450m & 540m. I removed all kexts other than hd3000. I patched DSDT for battery with Rehab. I installed all-in-one solution for Audio. 

 

I am facing 2 problems one with built-in Microphone and other artifacts. I am getting QE/QI and HD 3000 graphic is working well with native resolution 1366 x 768. I noticed artifacts are generated when temp raise. Starting of laptop for about 30 mins or so artifacts begin showing up. 

 

Please need help for both issues. 

 

Thanks in advance.

what flags r u using ???

Dear Mr Deepak,

 

I need your help very badly please. I have the same laptop as Mr Pranay. I am facing 2 issues. Artifacts & built-in mic. I used Unibeast method and installed 10.9.3. After installation I choose Chimera and other kexts from Multi-beast. I installed All-in-one solution for Audio. I patched DSDT for battery from Rehabman laptop patches. 

 

I noticed artifacts generate after some time, possibly 30 mins, after startup. I get native 1366 x 768 resolution and QE/QI.

 

Please help and thanks in advance.

Audio is ALC665. I searched in google to get kext. I couldn't find it. Please help. Artifact problem remain same

 

VoodooHDA 2.8.5 is working with slight disturbance in mic. Speakers working fine.

 

Please provide patched AppleHDA for ALC665 that helps me a lot.

 

I am finding a new problem of laptop heating up. I don't know why and how to solve this problem.

I used MacPoison and generated SSDT and placed in extra folder. But still laptop getting heated up. Artifacts really going me crazy. I removed all but hd3000 kexts. Tried without DSDT. No Use. 

 

I read in " Insanelymac" : " new information i.e. more testing shows that if i change just the panel size info (and leave everything else). then the built-in EDID worked perfectly. see post above. i was wrong about sync buffers etc.

 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/293313-intel-hd3000-artifacts/

 

Please explain how to change panel size and where to find to change. Please Help

    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
