Hi there!

First I was happy with my 10.9.2 Mavericks. I could even play Starcraft2 flawlessly

Then, a software update failed and wouldn't boot again.

So, I decided to reinstall again 10.9 but this time the screen went dark every time I booted.

Fix hackintosh black screen

I followed the instructions in that post, and I could make it to the Desktop, but with the Graphics Card not working properly, since is detected as a default. The screen flickers every time something moves.

Do you guys have an idea to get the card working again?

I think that if the backup drivers are restored could bring again the problem.

Did you backup the drivers before you installed, the software update? Because then you can simply put them back. If you stil know the source, download and reinstall the kexts.
