[Solved] 2011 12" HP EliteBook 2560P [2nd,2C,M] + GTX 1050 Ti @ 4Gbps-EC2 (EXP GDC 8.4) + Win10 [cunning_fridge]
Build not complete yet, I've been wrestling with error 12 and some detection issues. I'm going to try this evening with Setup 1.3x so hopefully will be able to report back with some good news and a few benchmarks over the next week or so.
It'll be interesting to see how much of a bottleneck the pretty ancient i5 will be and whether if it's worth swapping for an i7-2xxx quad.
GTX1050 Ti 4GB
Setup 1.3x ran but "no solution found" after trying all the compaction options, any ideas what else needs to be done?
The combo of GTX1050ti + 2560P absolutely requires a DSDT override to resolve error 12. That's because the video card requires 256MB+ contiguous space which the BIOS locked TOLUD setting doesn't provide. Only could get a GTX5xx/6xx/7xx (not 650/750) to work without a DSDT override on a 2560P.
Ah I see. Ok will give this a shot. Any ideas where I can get the compiler? Version 4 is no longer hosted on the microsoft library and it's not included in the win 10 SDK.
The link below is NOT the compiler and I will NOT immediately delete the link once you let me know you DIDN'T download it. 😉
EDIT: Link deleted for obvious reasons. The compiler is still in WDK 10, that's where I got it from. Its located at...
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Tools\x86\ACPIVerify\
It just sucks to have to download and install the entire package just to get a 147KB exe.
Not yet. There's problems getting the DSDT override working. See my latest suggestion at https://egpu.io/forums/pc-setup/fix-dsdt-override-to-correct-error-12
Have you got this to work?
As Nando said not yet unfortunately. The DSDT override has resulted in bsod so I'll need to restore the registry (somehow) and attempt a different method to achieve the override. I am a complete beginner at this plus the hp2560p + 1050Ti seem to be a tricky combo so could take a few attempts and possibly some grey hairs!
I was able to get this setup working with the GDC beast so I might be able to help a little bit. I had to do the DSDT override to get it to work though. On another note the 2450 was a bottleneck in some games (bf1) but was fine in overwatch. I picked up a 2760qm off ebay and the performance is much better. To deal with the heat I got the heatsink/fan from 2570p with diamond compound (that alone brought it from 100C + to 85C full load on BF1). I also picked up the Opolar laptop cooler which brought it down to 75C full load. I get around 45-50 fps 1080p on low settings in Bf1. I also have to use the 375.63 drivers currently or I get an error 43.
Thanks for the tips @Samm4
I've just managed to get the DSDT override working last week so I'm going to try and complete the setup this week. I did notice some detection issues that were preventing setup 1.3x performing the compaction prior to chainloading windows which I'm hoping can be worked through. Once the egpu is connected setup 1.3x hangs on rescan. Will investigate.
I'm using the stock cooler but reseated cpu with some arctic silver 5 which brought temps down under simulated full load, hopefully this will be enough to avoid any issues when gaming. I'm still using the i5 2450 but if i can get this to work I'll pick up a used quad like you.
Are you using an external or the internal monitor to achieve those results ?
What type of psu are you using? I had some issues similar to that when I was attempting to run it with and underpowered laptop psu. Do you get a blue light on the adapter?
The heat won't be an issue until you upgrade to a quad, however the 2570p heatsink and fan ($10 eBay) was just good enough for 85c on heavy gaming. The heat sink has a bit more heft to it but is the same in every other way. The opolar fan was just for my piece of mind and keeps it at around 70-75 during heavy gaming.
The benchmarks I gave were for an external monitor. Expect to lose 10-15 frames on internal. I get 30's on the internal display even at the lower resolution.
I'm pretty sure the GPU is still struggling with bandwidth at 1.2 (5gbps?) Wish there was a way to increase it lol.
