No battery recognition

Question

hugomc92    0

Hello, I´ve used niresh mavericks for a while and I had not been able to get the battery works as it should. I mean, it works, I can use my laptop without being plugging in but the battery icon doesn't show any information. I´ve tried to install VoodooBattery for mavericks but it didn't work, any suggestion what can I do to make it to work normally?

Thanks in advance!

remove /System/Library/Extensions/AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext 
 
Install VoodooBattery.kext and AppleACPIPlatform.kext to /System/Library/Extensions
 
you may want to rebuild the kernel cache to avoid issues

I´ve already done it but it didn't work. I removed AppleSmarBatteryManager.kext, reboot, used kext wizard to install both kext and rebuilt the kernel cache and repaired permissions from system/Library/Extension and nothing. it didn't work.

May if I unistall both kext VoodooBattery and AppleACPIPlatform, reboot and reinstall would work?

thanks for your reply.

I think VoodooBattery is the only solution out there

so nothing else what can i do? 

I selected Laptop battery during installation, may that cause the VoodooBattery not working??

unfortunately you have to do it by trial and error

try not installing any battery at install time, and then install voodoobattery

 

took me quite some time to get it to work on my ultrabook, but it works fine

then installing kexts and rebuilding caches

so you got the battery working with the VoodooBattery.kext??

I'll try to reinstall Mac OS X from scratch and don't select battery in the installation and see if that's work.

Thanks very much!

    • 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.
