GPU Fan spinning but not detection in Device Manager.

Hello!

I am trying to setup eGPU in my Dell Inspiron 7579 2 in 1 Laptop. My Laptop has a M.2/NGFF PCI-E Slot and My SSD was inserted into it.

So, I bought a USB 3.1 To M.2 SSD Enclosure and connected my internal SSD as an external drive and installed Windows 10 on it.

Then, I connected ADT-Link R43SL to the laptop's M.2 Slot and inserted RX 470 GPU and connected PSU with always-on using Paper Clip Method.

After that, I turned on the laptop and GPU Fan started spinning but neither I got an error message nor I can see my GPU in the Device Manager. I also checked the BIOS and it's also not showing in the BIOS.

Can anybody tell me what am I doing wrong?

Try disabling the dGPU from the bios. If you were unable to or it had no effect then it’s probably a whitelist problem. Go to bios-mods.com and ask for help for bios whitelist removal.

Thanks for the reply!

Actually, My laptop doesn't have dGPU(It has an Intel integrated GPU).

By the way, I will try to get help for BIOS Whitelist removal.

@yosukei22, No I am still facing the same problem. But, I haven't tried the BIOS Whitelist Removal because I don't know how to do this.

@yosukei22, No! I haven't tried another solution because I don't know what should I do now. That's why I shared my query into this forum but haven't received any proper solution yet.

@isiddharthgiri, owh I C..that's to bad. Well right now I'm trying to get my hands on the mini pci-e cable. I think there's a problem with my ExpressCard adapter.

Hope it can finally detect my GPU...

Actually I bought the ExpressCard version without knowing that its a 34 mm. My laptop only has 54mm slot...

But i managed to get my hands on an adapter. That enables me to slot in the 34mm. But somehow my laptop only detects the 54mm adapter and not the ExpressCard...I think that's my major prob right now...
