gGpu Ati on internal laptop display?
Hey, I believe the title says enough but still. I have basic eGpu setup - EXP GDC v8.0;R9 280x;Lenovo z500
Everything worked as a charm, it was plug and play story only think i did was to install the drivers. But there are two problems now, I can't find solution for..
1. Internal laptop display seems to be the peek for this project, but as u might see I dont have Nvdia video card so i can not use Optimus. I've read a lot of theards here in the forum, tried virtu drivers and more stuff but no of them seem to work. Do you have any suggestions?
2. There seems to have some stability problems. When i play on external monitor lets say GTA 5 i get smooth and stable play, but once I try to do a heist the EXP GDC v8.0 turns itself off then i have to restart the laptop, ive updated every driver but still no luck.
Any help will be welcome 🙂
See https://egpu.io/forums/pc-setup/guide-accelerated-internal-lcd-on-non-optimus-systems-enjoy/ for how to use a ghost adapter to allow *Windowed* apps to be dragged to and run from the internal LCD. If you wish to avoid the complexity and performance penalty, then just continue to use an external LCD attached to your AMD eGPU.
Thanks for the answer nando(4). I gone a screen from an old laptop with a dyi video controller so the external screeen is no more the problem. I'd to ask about the stability problem when gaming and benchmarking. The shutdown seem to happen randomly, I have changed the PSU with a trusted one but this doesnt help - same story. Do you have any suggestions?
Stability problems are comprehensively covered in https://egpu.io/forums/expresscard-mpcie-m-2-adapters/mpcieecngff-m2-resolving-detection-bootup-and-stability-problems/ . Poor stability under high 3D load often indicates power starvation from an underspecced or faulty power supply.
hella fasr answer haha. ill buy another Psu and then ill post my results here!
Hey it's me again! I changed the PSU still the same result, changed the card still the same. I thought it might be smth in the BIOS so i decided to disable on-board PcI and fu*ked up everything. Now the whole system doesnt event post. Its Lenovo ideapad z500 like I mentioned, I opened it up to reset the BIOS but no luck - the battery for the BIOS is soldered to the motherboard I unsoldered it however but no luck, I searched for a jumper but no luck again. Do you have any suggestions?
