    Default Driver to improve Nvidia graphics card resolution

    A few days ago I was able to finally put together my first Hackintosh. My system is built on a DFI DK P35 board and Snow Leopard appears to be running fine. I used an older PCI-E 7950 GX2 Nvidia card.

    I noticed that my video driver only has one resolution listed of 1024 x 768. I would like to be able to get a higher resolution if possible. Can someone please give me an idea how I might accomplish this? If there is a step by step guide just provide me a link.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Default

    Not certain what kext you loaded for your card, but here's a simple fix:

    (you can substitute any resolution that is compatible with your card and display, just change what's in bold)

    Q: How to change display resolution?
    A: 1) temporarily: boot with this kernel parameter (press F8)
    "Graphics Mode"="1280x1024x32"
    2) permanent: edit the file /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist, add
    <key>Graphics Mode</key>
    <string>1280x1024x32</string>
    after
    <string></string>
