HP Elitebook 8540p Displayport and VGA Not working for External Monitor

Question

Hi Guys, I've been learning a lot over the last few days, on what to do (and what not to do) in setting up Osx, After a failed attempt at installing a Yosemite distro by someone else, I downloaded Niresh's Mavericks 10.9 and honestly thought it wouldn't be as easy as a straight forward install, everything worked out of the box, except........ External Displays, and I'm not whining, you've done an amazing job with this release Niresh, HP laptops were not made for what we are trying to achieve here haha.

 

The issue I'm having is getting the Displayport and/or VGA to work so I can connect an external monitor, I am not sure if we can do this on the NVS 5100m, I see a lot of support out there for the geforce models and have tried just about everything to get it to work, updated Charmeleon, Installed the new quadro drivers, installed the CUDA drivers, tried GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No, all with no results which is frustrating to say the least, whats funny is when I remove the D/P plug my laptop screen flickers, as if it was trying to enable it but somethings stopping it, It works fine under windows, and doesn't flicker, I'm  not very clued up with apple and this is the first week I've ever attempted to make a hakintosh, so is there anything I'm missing here, or any sort of solution anybody has found for this, I'd be pretty stoked if any of you guys have.

 

Oh and after my upgrade to Mavericks 10.9.5 my USB and IDT seem to be fighting with each other, after removing the VoodooHDA kext the USB worked again, weird huh? I'll look into it further when I've got the time, at the moment I can use my external card, if you've got any info on that I'd be happy also.

 

Cheers guys - Jamie

Right, Im an idiot, I sorted it out so if anybody ever tries to install osx on one of these laptops with the NVS 5100m card use GraphicsEnabler=Yes, find your NVCAP and add the NVCAP string to your charmeleon bootloader. Boom! You will have external Display, (Displayport Only, you will need a Displayport to DVI-D or VGA Cable). 

 

Add this

 

        <key>NVCAP_0a2c</key>
        <string>04000000000003007C0000000000000A00000000</string>

Update.... got the sound working, just used Niresh's Audio fix. It stopped working after the update to 10.9.5. Usb 2 working but 3 not yet will look into it. Got dual boot to windows 7 working now too. Also after the recent security update from apple my apple store won't login, if anybody knows of a fix for that let me know, Its a recent update so I'm not sure if anybody has picked up on it yet, so heres a heads up It may kill your ability to use apple store. Also the security update removes the ability to use NVIDIA drivers.... bugger wish I could rollback now. Still no external display, I'm going to go through my kexts and see if theres anyway to soft enable them.

    • 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.
