Nvidia GT 540M - Dell L502X


Hello all,

I have recently installed Mavericks on my Dell XPS - L502X, it works perfectly fine. There are three issues that bug me;

1) On the login screen, if you leave the laptop for a while it will then go to sleep/hibernate, which seems to make my computer unresponsive. 

2) This links in with #2, I will be starting university soon and I'd rather have the system go to sleep rather than having to wait each time it loads up, it'd be perfect.


If these two are unfixable that's fine. I'm not very good with the coding and everything so guides are really void for me.

1 issue that bugs me is that the L502X comes with 2 graphics cards; Integrated Intel HD card (1GB I think) and my normal GPU which is Nvidia GT 540M 


I have looked for YouTube videos and guides online without success, I found one but it seems to have not worked. I downloaded the Ktext, I tried to install it but it doesn't seem to have done absolutely anything. I was wondering if someone would be able to help me, I'd be eternally grateful. 


If you post a guide and it's really long and complex, for example I see a lot of people talking about DTDS ( I think) and you've already lost me. Laymen's terms would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks in advance,




It says that my Nvidia card is my main card but it should be 2,048MB but it is saying that it's 512MB (WTH).

Graphics  NVIDIA GF GT540M 512 MB

Why has it done this?..

    • Well, the pkg is beginning to install High Sierra on my SSD, but then stops with the error code "could not be installed on this computer" 
    • I followed your tutorials which seems to be 1000% easy as its usually around the same as TonyMac, except your installs requires less to do and youve done most of the work too the package which makes it installing for us very easy. Now, the pic below shows a whole bunch of errors and I dont know why. Ive searched these forums and just like the title here, there is none which is odd, because from your tutorials, this shouldnt happen and it seems no one else is running into this problem, HOWEVER, if they did post something like this, Im 1, looking for the fix on high sierra, not sierra or tammy or roger or lutherin, 2 they need to check their titles again because its not helping anyone. I will say I did try installing Sierra Hackintish Zone version and it works all the way up to right after it installs, it tells me "it cannot be installed on this computer", SO....sigh, idk       So, to conclude, I do appreciate the devs here and much respect. Thanks for doing this. But guys, please help a bruh out and tell me how to fix this. Im using windows 10 as my main so do not tell me to go to do nothing on a mac, its the whole point of me coming here is to hackintosh. I do follow instructions fairly           well consider I teach Programming to the Military. My god bless this post and.....my soul too tbh <3       
    • Hello, I want to know what I have to do to install Kexts, use clover configurator, install bootloader, change resolution and how to use multibeast according to my hardware. I'm new to this mac configuration process. For now my hackintosh is pure, with no driver installed wifi, ethernet, graphics etc .. Sometimes when I start hackinstosh gives the Kernel Panic and stops loading on the apple screen, but I reboot and load normally. And also after a few minutes using the macOS it freezes the screen. I used the Hackintosh Zone Niresh Sierra because it was the only one that successfully installed on my notebook. My hardware is: Notebook Samsung Expert x23 Intel HD Graphics 5500 I5-5200U Processor Nvidia Geforce 910M 2GB 8 GB RAM HDD 1TB Bluetooth
    • @Niresh Now i have another Problem! How do i get HDMI Video to work? I'm only getting a Black Screen when i try to connect a Monitor
