Hi I'm using clevo 150hm with 560m onboard I dotn have integrated intel gpu.

So couple of week ago I fired up my egpu with gtx 960.

I ether had error 12 or 43. Right now if I don't use setup 1.3 I'm getting error 43. But I guess its the dual driver problem.

there are 2 ways I can fix it.

1. I set mpci gen 1 to gen 2 then F3 and restart that makes my pc work and windows starts on external monitor which is nice. But I get nvlddmkm.sys error. even if I'm not gaming.

its usually happens every hour. I tried everything you could find on the internet like other drivers, performance settings, tdr delay in registry. I even flashed new bios to mobo and gtx 960..... no result.  I get random black screen for 1-3 seconds then it resets and works again.

2. I just do pci compaction (without the gen2 settings) in the 1.30 setup and it works fine no crashes at all.  But my Ungine score goes down from 1000 to 900 and I notice big frame drops in games because of the bandwidth I gues...

 

So the question is why is gen 2 connection gets instable every hour ?? only thing I could think of right now is the faulty cable. When I twist it a little bit at the end of hdmi head my screen goes black with same nvlddmkm.sys error, but it stays black waaaaay longer(10-15 sec) then when I get the usual error while using my machine(1-3 sec). Its same 4101 event in windows event log though.

Please help me diagnose this or suggest something to try.

thx

I think I might fixed it. Found enough info on the forums about the gen 2 problem with beast.

So.... for anyone who has display driver crashes AKA black screens for 1-3 seconds change the following:

NVidia panel > set up digital audio > HDMI > turn this @!#@$ audio off.

Ehm it helps a bit better I gues but stil I get display crashes and I'm 100% sure it has to do with the electricity.

Every time my display went off I heard a weird sound from my mini fridge, which stand next to me. I thought it might be coincidence, guess not.

Today I turned off my light in the room on and off very quickly, guess what happened... yep display driver crash. So wtf is going on..... how can this thing be so electricity sensitive.

Or is it my old power supply ? any thoughts?

same prooblem. everytime I hear air conditioning fans stop(-as they do when they reach their target temperature-) I get the nvlddmkm.sys error and blue screen of death. I can say it happened %100 everytime. Pretty consistent huh. I don't know how to fix it though.

it seems moving other house hold products like (light, heater and air conditioners charger cabke) to a different outlet did the trick cause it hasnt turned off by itself at all today once it did that

guys I have a exp gdc egpu sytem. I had the nvlddmkm.sys error everytime my A/C fan stopped. I am guessing it was an electrical issue. What now works for me is i hooked my pc and psu to a belkin 6-Outlet Metal Surge Protector electrical cord(for 1240 joule) and since than no issue with that problem.  Hope you guys find it helpful.

Using a power cord with surge protection(belkin metal surge protector for 1240 joule) worked for me.

I have a similar issue, when running gen2 the screen will go black randomly sometimes on desktop, but mostly when there is a load, I have tried 2 500W PSUs and both have issues, I also tried powering the card with 2 PSUs (400W + 500W) and have the same issue.  Ferrite beads around the power cable and EXP GDC's data cable made no difference (neither did wrapping the data cable in foil), TdrDelay made no difference, it's already plugged into a UPS and moving it to a regular surge protector doesn't help.  The eGPU is a Vega 64, with Expresscard EXP GDC Beast.

Dell Precision M6700 + RX Vega 64(EXP GDC @ 4Gbps Expresscard) STILL HAVING RANDOM DISCONNECTS ON GEN2!
