Did my gpu just get ruined?

Today I’ve tried the egpu method on my laptop( switched the WiFi card for the gpu adapter). I connect everything as mentioned online and then proceed to turn my laptop, it was running pretty slow for some unknown reason, I tried to update the gpu drivers but had no luck, the NVIDIA driver installation was failing, followed by the error 43 in device manager so I thought the problem was the gpu, so I change it but it only resulted on a blank screen, and now the second card doesn’t work at all in a desktop pc even though the fans spin and it makes lights. When I try the first gpu again, it’s the same thing as the second gpu no display. 

im very worried at this point of both of the gpu’s not working. Any help would be greatly accepted

Specs: X556UAM laptop

1st gpu: gtx 1050 ti

2nd gpu: gtx 1060 ti

The psu is a 550w unit

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

@lolmanupro, have you tried wiping the drivers with ddu on your desktop? I'm not an expert on the nvidia egpu experience, I'd recommend maybe reposting with more info in the subject line.
