Need Video Solution! I'm Desperate!
Hey everyone. I'm pretty frustrated since I've been working on this for 6 hours straight with no luck. Earlier today, I was using my hackintosh and had to test a different resolution. Well I ended up getting a blue screen so I rebooted and got the same thing on start-up that time. By the way my system specs are:
Intel C2D e8400
4 GB 1066mhz RAM
EVGA 8800gt SC
Kalyway 10.5.4 with Chameleon bootloader (latest version)
So me being the noob I am (just installed Kalyway 2 days ago) I entered single user mode on bootup and did the ./movevideodrivers
Then I re-entered into leopard w/o any video drivers for my 8800gt. I was using OSx86 tool's efi string for the 512mb 8800gt before I had tried changing my resolution.
I tried to re-write it back on the boot.plist or whatever file using that utility and rebooted, only to get a problem I had never had before: my video card was recognized perfectly but stuck at 1024x768 and no ci/qe.
I have done multiple things to no avail. I eventually tried nvinject but then I got my old problem back when I first installed kalyway which was the black screen right after the apple symbol. So for hours now I've been trying things and googling crap and have gotten nothing.
For awhile I couldn't get into leopard because of black screen but I could boot into safe mode with full resolution but no qe/ci.
But now I'm back to where I can get in and have my 8800gt recognized in system profiler. But still no resolution and q/e and c/i. I'm so confused!!

Suprisingly enough, I got a new result. I was using an older version of nvinject. I tried using v.52 now but still no resolution change or qe/ci. But no black screen which is a different result with nvinject. Any ideas?
Please help. I still have no hardware acceleration. And I'm still stuck at 1024x768!!!!!!!
Ok. I've finally come to the point where every single different kext and nvinject and other drivers come out with almost the exact same result: I can boot into leopard with 1024x768 but no ce/ci. Except for different things in the about this mac window, every single kext and driver is now yielding the exact same thing. What is going on??
