Could you please fix the "black screen" issue by changing the following in DSDT.aml in upcoming D830 Nvidia Bootpack:

 

Device (AGP)

{

...

"device_type",

Buffer (
0x0D
)

{

"NVDA,
GeForce
"

},

"model",

Buffer (0x18)

{

"NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS"

}

Buffer (

{

Hello to all,

 

I own a D830 nvidia und gladly managed to run Lion and Mountain Lion with the latest EDP from this site!

 

The only problem I had with the standard EDP was the black screen issue that sometimes appeared after the boot screen - no desktop visible.

 

To fix that problem I had to change dsdt.aml like I described in this post above.

 

I attached dsdt.aml und dsdt.dsl (plaintext source). (In attached files I didn't change the value for graphics card name and preserved the origin value "NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS").

Yes I know. My solution is from that post.

 

...but dsdt.aml for D830 nvidia in current EDP (V424) contains still the "old" device_type entry wich causes the black screen issue...

 

And somebody asked me to post my fixed dsdt.aml - so I did :huh:

 

It would be very helpful to fix dsdt.aml in the EDP...
