A Graphics Problem Has Been Detected

Recommended Posts

I am new to Hackintosh and have completed my first build.  The build went fairly easy, but I'm running into a strange stability issue.

System Specs:

Asus G53SW ROG Laptop

Intel i7 2630QM

NVidia Graphics Card

120GB SSD (OS)

750GB SATA (Data)

16GB RAM

My smbios.plist file if setup as Mac Pro 5,1

Boot.plist flags are (as seen from Chameleon Wizard):

Graphics Enabler

Use Kernel Cache

Ethernet Build In

HDA Enabler

kext-dev-mode=1

nvda_drv=1

 

I was able to install using 10.10.2 OS revision. The core components (USB,Ethernet, etc.) of the laptop work fine; for WIFI I had to use an external ASUS WIFI card.

This is probably a nob question/problem, but here goes:

Periodically, the system will freeze and then jump back to the login screen. When I log back in, it says "A Graphics problem has been detected". It will then run smoothly for a while.  The error appears randomly and  does not appear to be associated with an activity. I have searched for a fix, but the only thing I have seen that relates to this problem is to add the nvda_drv=1 to the kernel. I am not sure what this does, but it didn't fix the problem.  

Thanks for the help

    • It's basically a problem with your graphics card, so try doing this.   In the boot options go to graphics injector and make a tick on intel graphics injector.   Also make sure you go to your bios and disable your discrete graphics Card.   After doing these to things, it solved the issue for me!! Hope it helps!
    • I installed Yosemite with the use of iGPU but when I installed the eGPU as mentioned on the title the loading screen stuck on caution. I also tried the bootflags such us  nv_disable=1 and nvda_drv=1 also I tried GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No but still no luck. What might be the possible problem? Image link
