3 problems: Video, sleep and moving video files through USB 3.0

Recommended Posts

Used to run 10.8.2. on MSI P55-GD65 main board and GeForce GTX 275 896 MB (dual DVI out) pretty perfectly, only the USB 3.0 card stopped working after a while. I did just the upgrade from 10.8.2. to Niresh 10.9.5. and sleep worked perfectly. I also saw my USB 3.0 card worked again!


One of the first problems I had though, was that I had to disconnect my second DVI cable ( GeForce GTX 275 896 MB) which runs to my HDMI receiver in the living room, as after a while the picture decided to blow up in size, but narrow it's widths and become unsharp. When I checked the monitor, it is still 1680x1050. After unplugging the second cable and log out, log in, all is normal. 


Then I got a nag screen by Little Snitch and decided to remove LS according to its uninstaller! (rebuilding this and that) I wish I never did that! My BIOS was reset(!!) and I had to figure out how all the settings were, before I could start up again. To my great shagrin, my sleep did not work anymore. Stil haven't found out, how to fix that, as adding "sleep enabler.kext" was no solution. :-(


Another problem I encountered, is that I cannot move video files to my Samsung D3 station using USB 3.0. All other files seems to work without problem. Using  the command line in Terminal, did remove my mouse pointer and froze the whole system, had to do hard reset!  The same disk under USB 2.0 did not cause problems though with moving video files (although way slower). Is it the Samsung disk, is it the kext, or just incompatible hardware ( Samsung interface or my USB card with NEC chip)


Would be great if I had these 3 problems solved, for the rest I quite like the--for the rest--worry free install.

    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
          8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
          ASUSTeK Computer INC. CG8350 (LGA1155)    26 °C
