2013 12" Dell Latitude E7240 [4th,2C,U] + GT 1030 @ 4Gbps-mPCIe2 (PCE164P-N03) + Win10 [Ruben Serralva]
12.5" Dell Latitude e7240 [4th, 2C/4T, U] i5 4310u , hd 4400 , Windows 10
$6 PCE164P-N03 mpcie riser card + gt 1030 + psu from my desktop as i dont have any other psu lying around
I connected everything up, the adapter to the wwan on the laptop's motherboard, the gt 1030 to the adapter, a sata power cable (with a 6 pin adapter) from my desktop to power up the igpu and an hdmi to my monitor
Then the process of instalation was as easy as turning on my desktop (to power the egpu) then power on the laptop, and voila, there was an output on the monitor, then i installed the nvidia drivers, i restarted the laptop, and there was an error 43 wich was easily fixed with nvidia-error43-fixer .
cs go, low settings 1366*768:
unigine valley (see pictures)
before: didnt run
If someone could help running the egpu on the internal monitor, it would help me a lot, as it would be really usefull, i wont care for the lost performance, as it would me more convenient
Any suggestion, please tell me, my laptop screen wont work (it switches off) on boot when the egpu is connected, and on device manager the igpu has an error 43
Also something that is interesting about this laptop is that, as you can see in the photos, not only it has a mpcie for the wlan, but it also has another mpcie for wwan, which i used with the egpu, so it is possible to connect a graphics card while keeping up the wifi card.
I got the internal display working with nando's help by doing this:
I will probably post photos and more benchmarks later
Could you say wich BIOS version was used by you for this eGPU setup? And your bios config was on deafult(e.g. secure boot)? I have the same adapter, but wont work, my notebook wont start when the adpter is installed.
i cant remember, but i dont think the bios version matters, i dont also remember about bios configs, i dont think its that important, the important part is to change the bios values
the computer is booting, but there isnt any image on the screen with the stock settings, the computer does look like it doesnt start, but actually its the screen that doesnt work with the epgu connected with the stock values on bios settings, if you plug the gpu into a monitor, you will see its output, to make the internal display work you need to change the bios variables
its a bit complicated, but use the tutorial i posted before:
ps: what i described to you, was with my notebook, i dont know about yours, but if its a dell laptop, and a model that is like mine, you can use that tutorial
Thank you for infos. I have a touch version of E7240 with full 3G modem preparation. If i try start my laptop with istalled egpu adapter the laptop wont start.
