[Sticky] [GUIDE] error 12/43 & other detection, bootup, stability & performance issues
So I modded an L430 notebook to run with a GTX 960 GDC Beast, so far it works fine, every game runs, firestrike near 95% performance, but there is 1 game, where the eGPU just runs abysmally bad.
Kingdom come deliverance runs so bad and I have no clue why. Even a GTX 750 TI runs better.
Any input on why the performance is so bad compared to all other games and benchmarks? Can I force it to run better somehow?
Can anyone help?
I have run Exp GDC V.8 with NGFF/M.2.
Here my spec:
RAM: 8Gb DDR3L
Motherboard: HP Pavilion 15, Intel HM170 chipset
iGPU: enabled (Intel HD 530)
dGPU: NVidia GTX950m
eGPU: NVidia GTX 1060 6Gb
some things I have tried out:
Remove WLAN, insert the EXP GDC. no delay/ 7s delay/ 15s delay and ATX switch on/off do not provide different results.
Result: Laptop stuck pre-post, power-on led turns on, caps lock blinking, does not show the splash screen, does not show any hdd activity nor does the usb keyboard work. The eGPU fan does spin.
Boot up with the WLAN inserted, put laptop to sleep, replace the WLAN with EXP GDC, wake laptop up again.
Result: Same Results with Scenario 1.
Tried to set eGPU to be permanent on, run with the same scenario, the result not detected.
I also tested the EXP GDC on a old Compaq 430, it worked for me.
Thank you in advance.
@nando4, might want to add this to the guide:
If you have a dGPU you suspect of causing issues, it might be helpful to make it completely invisible to the system (not just deactivate it) by using the following trick in the Windows Device Manager:
Step 1: Mark the dGPU by clicking on it once, then go to "View" -> "Devices by connection"
Step 2: Enter the settings of the "PCI Express Root Port" (or whatever it's called in English) that contains your dGPU, and disable/deactivate (NOT uninstall) it.
After that you will have a deactivated PCI Express Root Port device in the list, but the dGPU will be completely gone.
It will reappear when you reactivate the PCI Express Root Port.

Soo, a quick update...I'm using a asus k45a with a i53210m, trying to make it work with a 1050ti.
I was having alot of problems with the the beast 8.5, I changed it to the $7 adapter and well, one month in, no crashes whatsover, I guess this is it, lol too bad the money i spent with the beast will not come back...
I've been triyng to connect eGPU (NVIDIA 8600GTS and p106-100) using mPCI-E and m.2 connectors on my Lenovo e540, also on ASUS k55VM using mPCI-E and on a desktop PC (h110m-hds motherboard) through PCI-E 1x. None of the setups detected the GPU under Setup 1.35. I used 2 different riser boards (this and this). Both GPUs and PSU checked to be working on a PC. I've tried everything posted in this thread but still no detection. Anyone got any ideas? Would BPlus PE4L or GDC EXP work?

First of all, I would like to thank all you guys on maintaining this forum and keeping it active 🙂
I am new to eGpu setup so I have read trough the forum very well and tried fair ammount of things and I am still not able to connect to eGpu.
So, my setup is next:
Laptop: Lenovo t540p
iGpu: Intel 4600 HD
dGpu: Nvidia 730m
eGpu dock: Exp Gdc Beast v8
eGpu connection: express card
eGpu: Msi Gtx 760
OS: Windows 10 Pro
So, after 2 day/night (no sleep) fight I would appreciate any help I can get.
Firstly, I started with existing OS installation and after failing I have reinstalled latest windows 10 Pro version on MBR.
My Bios version is latest.
I have bought eGpu Setup 1.35 (reason for MBR partition)
I have made DSDT override using Microsoft method for Lenovo system following guides and my Device manager is recognizing Large memory for Pci Complex - no error 12.
I didn't managed to boot up while eGpu was connected so each time I boot i disconnect eGpu and connect it after Bios flash. I enter eGpu setup, disable dGpu, set gen1 speed, and run Pci coalition on 36bit.
Windows loads and recognizes gtx 760 with error 43. I have cleaned my drivers with DDO, tried woth 3 nvidia driver versions clean install, each time I get e43.
If I reconnect eGpu while OS is running, I don't get error 43 and memory is correctly allocated, but can not use eGpu. After running error43ScriptFix, e43 dissapers but cames right back.
For boot fix, I have tried setting ATX PW switch and PTD timeouts but no hep for booting.
I will try next clean install Windows 10 Creators edition 1709 on UEFI, but I won't be able do disable dGpu than.
I can confirm that PSU and GPU are working correctly.
Last I tried to make dsdt using Intel method but left with BSOD duo incorrect dsdt values.
Can anyone share their working versions for eGpu on T540P and are they on MBR or UEFI?
Any ideas are welcome.
Error 43 fixes that target Quadro/Geforce driver interoperability, link reliability (with Gen2 -> Gen1 downgrade ) to finally problematic hardware are listed at the opening post of this thread:
Also, I have boot to eGpu Setup 1.3 and setted Pci to 36bit and disabled dGpu and booted back to Winodws. Any ideas?
My eGPU system restarts randomly. This is sometimes repeated in 10 minutes, sometimes in 2 hours. Can be in-game or web browsing. As stated in the subject; Could the PSU be a problem with not being constantly open? If I perform the specified operations, will my restart be resolved? Or any damage to my system?
8 GB RAM
Note: I did not use eGPU Setup when using the system. Instead, I am modifying the 368.81 driver and then disabling the Nvidia 720M graphics card from the device manager.
After 3 days of trying, I hope I can ask you for a little help. So I am doing everything in the guide for installing the 1050 Ti (mPCIe, beast v 8.5) and I successfully managed to install it in safe mode (I can see the card in device manager) but when I try to boot into normal mode in Windows 10 there is the ACPI BOOT ERROR.
Don't get me wrong, I spent a lot of time looking for a solution but I can't quite decide which is the best option for me. Can somebody help me deal with this error?
Thanks for your time!
Hi, new to the forum - just like to say - excellent work to all involved!
I would like to contribute some DSDT mofied files for other users but I can't PM yet.
I have modified and successfully tested for :
HP EliteBook 8470p and some others using nVidia GeForce 10xx adaptors.
As soon as I can PM nando4, you can have them for the repository 🙂
After I have read and learned from the topics here, I have managed to get my eGpu working to a certain point.
After installing the eGpu, worked around the error 43 but still could not open Nvidia control panel because system did not recognise a Nvidia card attached to a display. This was until I enabled CSM in UEFI bios. Now I have the latest drivers on my GTX 1060 6gb with no errors in device manager. dGpu disabled. All systems seems like ready to go.
As I tried to run a benchmark program with the eGpu I noticed that the system didn't not utilize the eGPU almost at all. The fan blades were spinning at idle rate. I executed a dx 11 test in passmark 3d. I got a very poor result, it looked like the eGpu is just assisting the iGpu.
Some other confusing event was, when I tried to run a game with better graphics. When I went past a certain point in tinkering with shaders and other graphical details, the game would run for few 10 seconds and the freezes completely. At the same time eGpu fan goes haywire, spinning at max and making a hell of a noise. This lasts for a minute and after that a bluescreen with DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION error. Computer restarts and no changes in device manager.
So I'm trying to run the eGpu through notebook's monitor since I don't have an external. Is it worth to test the setup for example with TV?
I have browsed for many topics here, but have not come around any topics with issues like this. Would kindly appreciate all the help I can get!
I'm so close to a working eGpu but still too far 😀
OS: WIN 10 64 bit with uefi unmodded bios.
Processor: Intel core i7-4710HQ 2,5 MhZ 4 -core.
RAM: 12 Gb ram
Graphics: iGpu: Intel graphics 4600
dGpu: Geforce GTX 850m (is disabled from device manager as advised in topics here)
eGpu: Asus Geforce GTX 1060 6Gb (no errors in device manager, Nvidia control panel recognises card)
EXP beast v8.5 mPcie (ATX PW on, PTD off)
PSU: Dell DA-2 220W.
Looking forward to hear from any of you with more knowledge in eGpus!
EDIT: I have managed to figure out that the problem is the iGpu can't pass the display to eGpu because it's not connected into one.
How do I fix that?
EDIT2: Setup runs nicely on external monitor. Still, any way to run it through notebook's display?
I can manage M2 way eGPU with RTX 2080 on Linux with Skull Canyon.
But it looks like there is something wrong with this combination on windows right now.
It runs pretty well with my previous GTX 1070 (both Windows and Linux).
Anyone can help me out?
Thanks a lot in advance!
