Hi kizwan, nice to see you here instead of just insanelymac. I used to be there until my account got deleted when they changed the board over to the new system...

Re: acer_acpi. My son has an acer laptop-- IIRC, same as yours-- but its hard drive is dying so I can't test it now. Anyways, the best starting place (as pentiumpc found) is superhai's AMW0.kext. But superhai has deleted the source from his main download page. I can't find a copy anywhere, so you'll have to PM him.


MacBook Pro - have allergy to nickel in the aluminum casing. So my kid gets an expensive toy!
