    Just a quick update to tell you that I tried installing a kext and got kernel errors, and so I re-installed and I'm now trying to find a kext that works.

    Thanks

    Hey, IT WORKS! I've just finished transferring the files from my backup and now I have QE/CL! I didn't even need to install extra kexts to get it to work, I just installed myHack, and it recognised it.

    Thanks for all your help man, I really appreciate it. (p.s.. how do you give rep on this forum )

    Oh boys,
    Just for your question, I have to get a quick copy of iMovie and check to see where is the problem you mentioned.
    But it opened just fine on mine, and did not complaint anything

    Glad to hear it works for. Good job
    For the rep, it's on the top right hand corner.

    Thanks for letting me know

    Yeah, you must of got QE/CL working then. Another way to check it is by opening Front Row, because it won't run if you haven't got them two enabled.

    Thanks again (btw, is there a way to mark this thread as solved or something?)

    Thank you for the tip about Front Row. I opened it and watched trailers just fine.

    Good job on resolving your QE/CI issue. Be proud of yourself for trying hard

    I don't know if they have that feature for solved thread. Oh well, I guess people just have to read through your adventure

    Hi--when you say "it works" do you mean the kext posted on the first page of this thread? If so, then could you clarify the "transferring" bit--were you doing some sort of restore/reinstall? Did you delete all of the other stuff--the EFI string, kexts (if yes, which ones)?

    I've currently got an 8500 GTS (HDMI/DVI). The display is HDMI/VGA, but I can't get the HDMI working. (I've got it hooked up with a DVI/VGA adapter.) I believe that the QE is working, since FrontRow &c works. But, even though I've got 1680x1050, it seems a bit washed out and fuzzy. Maybe just a crap monitor. Anyway, wondering whether it's worth it to try for better performance out of this card or just sit-tight.

    Cheers!

    Hey, unfortunately I couldn't fix it using the kext posted on the first page. What happened was that I accidentally managed to mess up my system by using a random kext, and so I couldn't boot etc. So I then re-installed osx, but this time only updated to 10.6.2 instead of 10.6.3, because there were more kexts for that version. I then installed myHack onto the hdd, which I need to boot from the hdd as I am using Empire EFI. That program installs some kexts for you, and that's what got QE/CL working. I don't know the exact kext, but I'm sure Google will tell you

    If you are installing a new GPU kext, then yes, you will have to delete other GPU kexts in your Extensions folder, but only the ones you yourself have installed, i.e. NVEnabler.

    Sorry I can't help with your monitor, it's just probably how it rolls

    Erm, to be honest, I wouldn't try overclocking a 8500GT. The performance increase wouldn't be noticeable, and you will just end up with more noise and heat. Just my opinion though.

    I hope this helps.
