Yes the boot loader comes up on the Monitor and i can see it boot up and all the kexts loading but when it gets to the login screen the monitor doesn't receive any signal it goes to sleep I've tried going into System Preferences and going to display then holding alt and pressing detect displays it doesn't do anything, also when i connect the DP Cable into my Laptop the screen Flashes a Light Blue but doesn't connect to the display just the laptop screen remains on. Is there a display port Option in the Clover Configurator I'm not Aware of? Something i need to type into the Config.Plist file? Thanks for the Quick reply  :mrgreen:

Hey I've Ruled out the issue guys, my motherboard turned off and rebooted giving me an error m1004 and I searched this up and it was pointing towards the Motherboard I had only got this Board from Ebay for a week or two and I emailed the seller and told him I used copper shim thermal paste laptops coolers even the special Heatsink for the nVidia Model! He said you've tried all you can and our technicians have said that the nVidia Chip has Failed So if you want money back then post to us! So turns out just an Error with the Actual nVidia Chip in my Laptop!

@yekabs you have the Dell Latitude E6500 not E6400 This Install AND bootpack will not work you know what they say Don't ever use another Laptops or PC's bootpack unless you have the same configuration becuase the DSDT.AML and Config.Plist are different to your Laptop, I do belive that the e6400 has a 14.1 inch screen and the e6500 has a 15.4 inch screen so the resolution will not work sorry I will try and find the bootpack for your PC do not worry my friend 😊
