HP DV7 almost perfect... help with brightness and wake up please.

Question

marcandre    0

This is my first post and I want to thank all users of the forum and especially Niresh and Deepak for their useful posts. And sorry for my english ... I'm Brazilian.

 

I decided to try to build a hackintosh on my HP DV7-1183cl laptop and now I have an almost perfect hackintosh. Using for one week without any freeze or kp. Not bad for a newbie.

 

The install was done with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 and now was updated to 10.9.5

 

I have only two problems:

 

1 - Brightness control works perfect with the default HP keyboard function keys but I can not adjust the brightness inside OSX.

---- There is no brightness slider in the display pref pane. I applied the PNLF patch on DSDT but did not work for me

 

{

Name (_HID, EisaId ("APP0002"))

Name (_CID, "backlight")

Name (_UID, 0x0A)

Name (_STA, 0x0B)

}

 

---- And my dsdt has only two methods: _BCL _BCM (they appear on devices LCD and DD03). The _BQC method does not exist on my dsdt. I do not know if that makes any difference.

 

 

2. Sleep is working when I use the "sleep" command from the menu and also when I close the laptop lid. The problem is on wake-up from sleep.

---- First, I have to press the power button twice to wake up the laptop from sleep. In the first press, the laptop quickly turns on and then turns off. With the second press the laptop wake up. No wake up from mouse or keyboard.

---- Second, the system loads the entire boot. So the time to wake up from sleep is the same as the normal boot. I think this is not right. The wake-up from sleep should be much faster than normal boot.

 

Just to be clear, the native power management is working fine with AppleIntelCpuPowerManagement kext and I can see the frequencies changing with Hardware Monitor app. The NullCpuPowerManagement kext was deleted.

 

I am sending attached all my config files.

 

I will be very grateful if anyone can help me solve these two small problems.

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
