Low Profile GT 1030 GPU not working with EXP GDC

Hi, I am having trouble with getting my EXP GDC eGPU setup to work. I am using a GT 1030 low profile card with a Dell Inspiron 3263 All-in-One computer with Intel HD Graphics 520. I am also using a 300W ATX power supply. At first, the EXP GDC couldn’t turn on by itself so I had to jumper the power supply in order to get the green light to appear in the EXP GDC. I have disabled the integrated NIC in the BiOS. When I start up my computer, the power supply and the adapter both turn on, but the GPU isn’t working. I am not feeling any heat from the GT 1030. Is  this a BiOS problem or is my GPU faulty? Please respond! I included links to a picture of my setup and my Device Manager window. I am using Windows 10.

Which version is the EXP GDC?

I tried a couple 8.5Cs recently but couldn't get them to be detected. My old Beast version worked without problems aside gen2 interference though.

Don't know what's happening with the new ones.

@Sarthak_Saswat_Das I eventually brought my All-in-One PC and the EXP GDC Beast to a computer store, and the employees said that the NGFF WiFi card slot in my computer doesn’t have the NVME interface to operate the eGPU properly. I decided to sell the EXP GDC Beast on eBay and build a gaming PC instead (I have it now), which is using my existing 2.5” hard drive that was in my All-in-One. If portability really matters to you, just sell the old laptop and buy a laptop you can find with a thunderbolt/usb-c port and buy an eGPU dock that connects to that port. Thunderbolt/USB-C is a lot more reliable than NGFF/mPCIE when it comes to eGPUs, despite the slightly higher price point.
