HP Pavilion and EXP GDC 8.0 Need Help 🙁
I'm using HP Pavilion 15-au183sa
So, I bought the exp gdc 8.0 with an ngff connector. Then, I connected it on the laptop and I am greeted with a black screen with flashing caps lock key. HP Website says its a code for "The embedded controller has timed out waiting for the BIOS." I get the black screen even when i only connect the cable itself not connected to the beast. I have already tried the options here: https://egpu.io/forums/expresscard-mpcie-m-2-adapters/mpcieecngff-m2-resolving-detection-bootup-and-stability-problems/
I have also tried hotswapping the beast and the wifi card after putting the laptop to sleep. All that happens is the black screen again.
I tried hotplugging too while the system is in use and it renders my keyboard unresponsive.
I can't seem to find a solution at all 🙁 any help would be appreciated.
I have similar HP model and same problem. Were you able to make it work?
did you find any fix?? i purchased gtx 1060 and i waited so long for this and i'm having the same issue. please help if you have found any solution
Also I have same issue on HP Pavilion 14-bkxxx NGFF M.2 Key A/E slot type used by WiFi.
The issue faces even if I just plug in the cable. (no HDMI)!!
Black screen and capslock lighting ... someone help us, pls???
I have the same problem. I am having an Hp 15-ab522tx laptop. I also know the reason for this, its because of the wireless card whitelist. The system wont turn on if it detects a foreign/ not compatible device in the list. If we can remove the whitelist we will succeed. But to do so i think we need to flash the bios with a modded version, unfortunately i am not able to find a modded bios for my system. If any one facing the same problem come lets join forces/ if any one already found a solution please help.
