I have boughtEXP GDC 8 from bangood and Gigabite GTX 1050 Ti OC 4GB. I also own a laptop Lenovo g780 with freshly installed Win 8.1.

I removed WiFi component from inside of the laptop, replaced it with cable i received and connected all together. Then in BIOS i switched to UMA and disabled PXA BOOT. Everything is running, but if i try to install drivers for my external GPU ... it can't find it. I also can't see graphic card in DeviceManager. And I didnt try to connect external monitor to graphic card, because i dont have one. I only have TV.

So I am begging for help.

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

Pls work through including jumpering your PSU to be permanently on.
