    Default laptop display doesn't work

    good evening all! first post, first time using mac os! very excited, very tired however...

    going to call it a night, but wanted to post this while everything is still fresh in my head, and put this out there, so when i wake up an get to work, i have something to play with. *wink wink*

    i just installed 10.5.2 using the install by kalyway on my hp compaq nx7400. at first, i was getting the blue screen issue, and someone mentioned that it was trying to use my external monitor. so... i went to the basement, and brought up another monitor. DING!

    so, the OS did install fine, and everything looks ok, well, missing items, but i'm trying to tackle this one issue at a time. =D

    i can't seem to get it to use the regular laptop display! just the external monitor shows anything. also noticed, that when i close the lid, it makes everything look "funny". ya, technical, i know... no other way to explain it, and it doesn't seem to want to come back, so i gotta reboot it...

    please bear with me, as i'm more a windows kinda guy, so i'm still getting used to the OS and where/what/how everything is. thanks, and look forward to working with everyone!!!! =D

    Default

    YEAH! Reloaded, and used the base 950 drivers, and it worked! Also appears to have networking! (Well, the ethernet is working at least, still haven't had a chance to check wifi, but thats next on my list, after sounds!!!)

    Seems just needed some sleep, and relook at it, heh. Installing updates now! I'll let ya know how it goes, I'm stoked. Can ya tell??
