Help With Video Drivers On Dell XPS M1710

Recommended Posts

Hello Forum,

 

Here Roberto from Mexico City needing some help with my Dell Laptop Hackintosh install.

 

I own a Dell XPS M1710 which has the following main components:

 

- CPU: Intel Core 2 T7200 @ 2.00GHz ( 2 Cores ).

- RAM: 4GB ( 2 DDR2 SDRAM Samsung Modules ).

- Chipset: Mobile Intel 945PM Express.

- GPU: NVidia GeForce Go 7950 GTX ( with 512MB, PCI Express x16 ).

- Display: 17 inches.

- Resolution: Max and Native resolution of 1920x1200x32.

 

I have been successful installing a copy of Mac OS X 10.10 ( Yosemite ) on the laptop following the tutorial at Hackintosh Zone.

 

All is working fine on the laptop ( Power OFF and Reset from The OS X, the DVD-ROM, the Ethernet Port, the Trackpad, a wireless USB Mouse, the USB 2.0 ports ) except the Video GPU and the Wi-Fi.

 

The Chameleon Bootloader shows the following string about the NVidia card:

"Unknown 512MB NV49 [10de:0297]-[1028:019b] :: PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,"

 

My install always boots with a generic video driver which is VERY SLOW and sets the video resolution to 1280x1024.

 

Yosemite using the "System Information" app shoes the following at the "Graphics Adapter" section:

 

- Chipset Model: Unknown

- Type: GPU

- Bus: PCIe

- Slot: Slot-1

- PCIe Lane Width: x16

- VRAM (total): 512MB

- Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)

- Device ID: 0x0297

- Revision ID: 0x00a1

- ROM Revision: 5.71.22.45.06

 

Do you know if a driver exists for my NVidia GPU on Yosemite ?

Or any other fix or hack I can use to have the full video speed and resolution I have on Windows ?

 

Please let me know and thanks a lot in advance.
