- Change the ACHI settings in bios to "Manual" and "Enabled", as having it on auto won't work.
- Install OSX using iBoot
- Update to 10.6.8 using the Combo Update
- Install MultiBeast, List of drivers to select below
Some issues when i installed, with the fix:After entering sleepmode, system won't boot "Still waiting for root device"After i've entered sleep mode and forced shutdown the computer, the BIOS settings are reverted to ACHI auto. Change it back to Manual and Auto. The sleepfile is still laying somewhere not making it to boot, use the boot flag Wake=n to get it back running.Can't boot using iBoot after the first boot.Boot using the parameters -x -v and it should boot up fine.
Things that needs to be fixed:However, the "tapping" of the trackpad is not working, so i need to press the button to click on a link, open a program etc.The F5 key is not working on the keyboard, but the F12 for Dashboard and the special FN keys are indeed working.Sleep is not working at all, the screen gets black and then im stuck.Wireless is not working either, tried adding the IO80211Family kext but when i copy it to the extensions folder, i get an error message saying that the kexts we're not installed successfully.I have details from CPU-ID Cpu-z from Windows 7 which should tell the PCI-ID etc. Of the Wireless card, however i can't really find the maker and model of my wireless card.It seems like they got it with 3 different types of Wireless cards. This is from the driver download section from Samsung:Wireless LAN,BROADCOM (Driver) (ver.188.8.131.52)Wireless LAN,ATHEROS (Driver) (ver.184.108.40.2069)Wireless LAN,INTEL (Driver) (ver.220.127.116.11)Is there any way to figure out the make/model from the cpu-z specs?Any help would be really appreciated!

How do i enable wireless on samsung rv511?
Most times there will be a switch on one of the sides or at the front of the laptop that turns on the wireless. Once the switch is on you can also toggle the wireless on or off by keystrokes. Most times you will Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left side of the keyboard then hit the correct key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it or it will have a tower with the wireless signal icon )))) on it. When you toggle the wireless the screen will display Wireless ON or Wireless OFF for a second or two.
RTM - Read The Manual
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "SamsungSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.

When switch on laptop,high sound coming
If your laptop is making a high pitch of noise (long beep) and the laptop is not having any problem booting to windows (operating system) there's a possibility that one of the button is pressed also known as sticky key
Switch off your laptop try to touch and press all the buttons and try to switch it on.
If you will encounter the same thing wait until the laptop boot to windows and open the notepad application and try to use all the buttons
If some of the buttons are not working or some buttons automatically press the problem will be on the keyboard
Is it okay if you will send more information regarding with the high sound coming from your laptop after switching it on because I would be happy to assist you and resolve your question with accurate answer . Thank you : )

I have brought a laptop
Samsung has a built in great power management. It will reduce power brightness to 50% or less if unplug from power cord. <<< it gives more times for power on the battery stays longer. BUT if you demand for some cases eg.PRESENTATION >>> go to CONTROL PANEL >>>power option >>> presentation. APPLY >>> OK[email protected]

I have brought a laptop of samsung rv 509.
There are actually buttons on your laptop that are made for changing brightness.
Hold the "fn" key, and press the "Up" button while holding the "fn" key.
Do the same thing to lower the brightness, except hit the down key.
"fn" + "Up" Raise Brightness
"fn" + "Down" Lower Brightness
Thanks for using FixYa.

Font size when online is tiny
if you man that the font size of the text in the websites is smaller then a simple trick is to
hold Ctrl button and roll the roller on the mouse
another way is
Menu -> View -> TextSize -> (select the appropriate size )

Media player not play because
Download and install this it will allow almost all media to play in your windows media player.
Or you could download VLC media player, it plays everything.
Personally I would stick with the windows media player, just because it's half a part of windows, & it's what I've always used. Or if you have a zune, or xbox windows media player is needed.
