Black screen after edp update

Recommended Posts

d820 and d620 nvidias have a chipset limitation on screen sleep they do not wake. but if you can change the resolution then it comes back on or you have to sleep the machine and wake it.

Okay...I've re-installed the D820 NVidia configuration, I still get the same black screen. However if I put the laptop to sleep then wake it up again the screen comes on just as you suggested it would. What I don't understand is why it has worked perfectly for a very long time until I upgraded to the latest version of EDP.

check org.chameleon.Boot.plist to see if this string is there

I experienced the same thing using the D820 nVidia option. The D620 nVidia option does work for me, but have to use Apple battery/power management, not Voodoo. Using Chameleon Wizard, I noticed the org.chameleon.Boot.plist does not have anything in the bottom box, where the D620 plist does...

True, they don't wake from screen sleep. How do you change the resolution? Not sure what you mean by that. Sleep & wake the machine does work, but there are odd instabilities. For example, sometimes the trackpad behavior changes on wake to what behaves like the standard Apple driver (point stick works, scrolling does not). Also, the machine seems more prone to kernel panic after sleep/wake.

I'm wondering if it just wouldn't be the DSDT table being removed from /Extra after executing EDP. If system can boot from USB installer, it's a 1st hint and once the system is up, it only takes 30s to verify...

could be permissions issue that are causing your odd instabilities use disk utility to repair permissions

 

Funny you should mention permissions. As an experiment I ran repair permissions several times. Interestingly, Displays.prefPane groups never get repaired - after repeated repair permissions. The same items need to be repaired again. Any thoughts?

Sorry I've not been about for a couple of days. I've checked org.chameleon.Boot.plist and there is no sign of the device injection key which is what I would expect. The Chameleon/OSX correctly detects my graphics card as a Dell Nvidia Quadro NVS 120M with 256Mb ram. I've also ran MyFix to fix problems with permissions and this hasn't made any difference.

 

I have attached today's Kernel.log and System.log - I don't know if these will reveal anything that might suggest what the problem is.
