Good day!

I have an Acer VN7-571G laptop with dGPU of NVidia GT940M, but I wanted more computing power so I decided to buy a Beast GDC V8 dock but whenever I tried to run it with my AMD RX480 I always ended up on a black screen. My bios have the most limited option so I after 6 hour straight of finding a solution I consider joining the forum and ask.

Any advice? Thanks in advance.

See https://egpu.io/forums/expresscard-mpcie-m-2-adapters/mpcieecngff-m2-resolving-detection-bootup-and-stability-problems/ noting requirement to hide the eGPU from the BIOS to fix a black bootup screen.
