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.
