    Default Blue Screen after resolution change Gforce 8500 GT

    Hey,
    I can't seem to change the resolution, and when I do, I get a blue screen. I've tried so many things but I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing because I have zero experience changing around Mac system files.
    If someone could help me out with this, it'd be pretty great. :]
    If you can see from the thread topic, I have a GeForce 8500 GT 256 mb Dawn of War Special edition.
    Thanks in advance,
    -andrew.glesener

    change your resolution this way
    HDD>Library>Prefrences>SystemConfiguration>com.app le.Boot.plist

    your going to need to apple-i the system config folder and change is to that you have read & write privleges
    then click the cog symbol and click "apply to enclosed files"
    no open the com.apple.Boot.plist file in text edit and it should look like this

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>Kernel</key>
    <string>mach_kernel</string>
    <key>Kernel Flags</key>
    <string></string>
    </dict>
    </plist>


    change it to look like this


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>Kernel</key>
    <string>mach_kernel</string>
    <key>Kernel Flags</key>
    <string>"Graphics Mode"="1280x1024x32"</string>
    </dict>
    </plist>

    you can change 1280x1024 to any resolution you want and 32 is the color or something like that but keep it at 32

    save the file and reboot

    if it gives you any problems start up with -x in the boot prompt and change the file again

    GAHH.
    Alright. So the first approach to my problem, J0NA5's approach, WORKED, BUT, the problem is It wont let me scroll in ANYTHING.
    When I do scroll everything gets all messed up. >__<
    So obviously that doesn't fix my problem.
    The second approach, didn't work either.
    It didn't change anything and I still had the same response.
    Please help me out here, I have no clue what to do.

    I know what you mean, looks weird when you scroll, did you installed the package and add the device with efi studio?

    Well try the manual way...

    I have NO idea what I just did, but I just got it working.
    I got about half-way through the manual install before my computer stopped giving me Admin privileges so I decided to reboot and see if that fixed the problem.
    It booted up in 1024x768, and now everything works and scrolls great.
    Ha, thanks for the help. :]
