Hi, I was wondering if anyone had solutions to two problems I was having with my otherwise successful E6410 installation of El Capitan. The first problem is the lack of sleep support. When I put the laptop to sleep it turns off the screen, accesses the hard drive for a bit, and never turns off. I have already disabled hibernation and deleted the sleepImage file. Is there any way to fix sleep? The second problem is the wireless adapter. I'm using a Broadcom BCM4311 chip (PCI ID 14e4:4311) from an old Latitude XT convertible. Is there any unofficial driver for this chip in Sierra? All my other wi-fi cards are Intel brand (unsupported) and I cannot buy a new one at this time. I would like to upgrade to Sierra, but if there is no support for my Wi-Fi card I will stay on El Cap. Thanks.
CPU | Intel core i7 6700 3.4Ghz Mobo | Gigabyte H170-D3hp Ram | Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) 2133Mhz GPU | Galax GTX970 4GB SSD | Samsung 850 Evo 500GB PSU | Thermaltake 600w OS | 10.11.6 I initially thought this issue was a blown port and while it still could be hardware I've noticed something very odd. Two days ago I was using a USB 3.0 portable drive doing some colour grading in Da Vinci resolve. Quite suddenly, the mouse stopped working and then a couple of seconds later the system reset itself. I have no idea what happened but when the system rebooted a message popped up and for a tense few seconds I was worried the drive was ruined. The message said something like 'drive connected to mac but does not have power' or something along those lines but specifically indicating that I should plug the device in to a port that has power. This was the same port the drive was plugged in to when the reset happened and so I unplugged it and moved it to the port above and it worked. I was curious about the issue today and didn't have any critical work to do so I had a test with another bus powered drive that also previously worked fine. This one also had not encountered any dodginess like the sudden system reset either. I plugged it in to the port that I knew had caused issue and received the same message. I plugged it in to the port immediately adjacent and also received the same message. The thing is the drive is spinning so it *is* receiving power and the fact that it's giving me that message suggested to me that is registering on at least some level with OSx. I've also had a look in IOregistryexplorer and can actually see that the drive that supposedly has now power is listed in the IOUSB section while it is currently plugged in to the malfunctioning port. On top of that the LED light on the hard drive functions too. Anyone know what I should do?
Hi there. I'm trying to install on the Intel model (not Nvidia), Mountain Lion from myHack 3.31 and I boot with -v, and the installer freezes (by freezes I mean I can't press a key to display those weird characters) saying: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::registerLPCDriver - WARNING - LPC device initialization failed: C-state power management not initialized. I can't see an option to enable something like that in my BIOS, so I'm absolutely clueless at what to do. Would anybody be able to help me out please? Many thanks in advance, Nick
