Unable to change resolution for Intel HD 2500 in Yosemite

Recommended Posts


I have just installed Yosemite 10.10.1 Niresh following his guide available here.

Now everything is working fine except for the graphics card GPU is only showing a resolution of 1024x768 whereas I have a monitor which supports 1440x900

Here are my system details:

  1. Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G2030 @ 3.00GHz
  2. GPU: Intel HD Graphics 2500 [8086:0152] (rev 09)

Here is what my system information says about the Graphics Card:

Type:    GPU

  Bus:    Built-In

  VRAM (Total):    5 MB

  VRAM (Dynamic, Max):    10

  Vendor:    Intel (0x8086)

  Device ID:    0x0152

  Revision ID:    0x0009

  Kernel Extension Info:    No Kext Loaded



  Resolution:    1280 x 1024

  Pixel Depth:    32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)

  Main Display:    Yes

  Mirror:    Off

  Online:    Yes


Now my question is that is there a way to increase the resolution in Yosemite or any other version of Hackintosh.

I am also seeing that the screen is a bit laggy and choppy. I have tried many things but have not been able to fix this issue.

Also note that my Screen is connected to the CPU via a VGA cable as my screen does not have a HDMI port and the only port is VGA available.

I would request some of you experts to guide me in resolving this issue, even if it means that I need to change the OS X version.

I have also read that HD 2500 is not supported but I have seen on other forums that some users are having higher screen resolutions on the same GPU, is it because of the VGA connection.

    • Hey guys, this is my first post on this forum.   I've installed High Sierra on my box.   These are my settings:   Intel Core i5 3570k (Intel HD 4000) MSI Z77A-G41 8GB RAM 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD   I'm using an HDMI cable with a monitor resolution 1920x1080   Everything is working fine... I've got my LAN working after installing some kexts.   But now I can't have my VGA working properly (some glitches and slowdowns).   I've tried alot of things that I've found on the internet, like changing config.plist on Clover with some different settings. But nothing worked for me... even youtube videos showing how to get it to work...   Can you guys help me please?   Thanks!

    • Hi You might use Apple Disk Utility to clone the disk. May be you must  write a disk image of your Startup disk first. Carbon CopyCloner will do it too ( EVEN IF THE DISK IS IN USE). Then you must install Clover on the Disk and copy the contents of the efi Partition of your startup dist to the Clone. Voila thats it.
    • I have an HP desktop that is running Niresh Mavericks. I have a second computer that is identical. I haven't been able to get the distro to install. Is there a way to copy the boot drive that works now and put that copied drive into the second machine. The second machine allows me to install the Niresh distro, but then won't boot from it at all. Can I use an Ultimate Boot CD to clone the drive?  Also, I check both computers and they are both running the exact same bios and settings.
