    Default Video card changed ...

    Hi.
    I have a fully working snow leopard 10.6.2.
    At the begging it was running 10.6.0 with a Radeon HD 4890 with the following kext: ATI4800Controller, a modified ATIRadeonX2000, EVOenabler.
    The video card got broken, I installed a Radeon HD 4650 and used ATIRadeonX2000.kext and a chameleon beta booter fron Netkas site and It worked but system begun to be unstable with random hangups (no screen of kernel panic, just stopping fans and messing up video).
    I upgraded to 10.6.2 ... not better
    Now I'm testing the system with TechTool Pro 5 and ... guess what? Leopard believes that I still have a Radeon HD 4980!!!
    So, here's the answer: how do I get rid of it form system and begin using 4650 kexts? You know, everything is ready for a system reinstall but it wouldn't be ... how to say ... hacker
    Bye.

    Yes, I have tried replacing kext and both deleting and recreating cache but still video card string is 4890 and not 4670
    The rest of info seem to be the correct (video ram and stuff like that).
    Maybe the reason for random system hangs is not video card ... oh lord
