I have a problem. today my laptop does not recognize the GPU well, it is well connected, just today I got this problem, unplug my laptop and change it, connect everything and when it started all load Windows and there it is, when finished to start Windows I did not turn on the screen connected to the GPU, so I rebooted it several times and it's still the same, I tried DDU steps and nothing, but I saw something, when I connect the HDMI to my laptop and turn on the laptop it recognizes the GPU, but if I unplug the HDMI cable I get the warning sign that the GPU can not be ejected or disconnected.

  1. My gpu: GTX 650 To boost.

EXP GDC with HP-15 BA010NT Connected to laptop GTX 760. I tried the drivers 417.22, 419.17, 418,91, 381.65, 372.70, 368.81, 353.30. (Clearing with DDU.) But I couldn't fix Code 43 error. My laptop's BIOS is not unlocked. My HDD device is unfortunately GPT. So I can't run the eGPU setup program ...
Any help?

hi, i've been searching around on how to setup lenovo thinkpad x250 with exp gdc (ngff version) but can only find x230 setups and t430's. the gpu i'm using is nvidia nx8800gtx. i'm using this old gpu just to check if it would work with my laptop before i buy a more powerful one.

  •  i've tried updating the bios to the latest version
  • when i turn on the the laptop, sometimes i shows black screen only, sometimes it loads windows but when i check the device manager, the gpu is not listed there
  • already tried to disable the wake on lan, still no progress

my question: will exp gdc work with lenovo x250? if yes,

  • do i need to change my bios?
  • is my gpu too old?
  • what should i do to get rid of the black screen?
  • if the windows loads, how to i get the gpu to show on my device manager

thanks

I bought gtx 750 ti, mini PCI express and psu. 
When I build the system , I removal Wi-Fi card and plug egpu and I open my laptop but it doesn't detect any card. 

  • I have tried already these :

1) I changed a lot of times bios settings for example change display , switchable card to integrated card. However, it doesn't detect it. 

2) I plugged Wi-Fi card and I opened laptop and I have taken laptop to sleeping mode and I changed Wi-Fi card to egpu but it doesn't detect again.
3) you can say you have a whitelist but when I remove Wi-Fi card , my laptop opens and works although I plugged egpu or mouse usb. When I plug usb of mouse it works it detects but when I plug egpu it doesn't detect.  Do you think it is still whitelist problem. My laptop is Lenovo b580. 

4) I checked all of the cables. 
5) there is also msata port , should I try to use for egpu ?

Hey everyone,

 

I recently got a gtx 960 2gb working as an eGPU for my Lenovo z50-70 (i5-4210U gt820m model) with the exp gdc, a 550w PSU and given the 960 an overclock (it’s at its limit). I use the NGFF adapter for my eGPU, replacing my WiFi card.

 

**I’m using my internal laptop monitor, I have connected up an external one but had no increase in performance. Is this because I forgot to set that as my primary display? (Facepalm) And will that fix this huge performance drop?**

 

I’m getting much lower FPS than expected in games and benchmarks alike. Having to put overwatch on all low settings with a custom settings file at 720p to keep 60fps - even so it drops under that! I get as low as 35-40 drops sometimes! A 960 should easily be able to handle overwatch on low, even on eGPU right?

 

So, is there any way to boost the performance that I have missed? Or is there something crucial I need to do?

 

I’ve updated drivers, cleaned my pc (physically and storage wise) and use unpark cpu. However these are things specific to any pc and do not fix the eGPU performance loss. I know there will be a performance drop, but there shouldn’t be this much. I also know my cpu bottlenecks my 960, but in GPU reliant games like overwatch it shouldn’t matter.

 

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

 

Benchmark for some context:

(Pre-overclock sorry - if I recall correctly the OC boosted the score to 690 something)

Heaven benchmark (1920x1067 windowed, high quality, tessellation off) got a score off 666, average FPS of 26.4.

System specs

HP 8470p - 14" - 1366x768

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3320M
  • RAM: (2+8)GB DDR3 1600MHz
  • iGPU: Intel HD4000
  • dGPU: none
  • OS: Windows 7 Pro

eGPU hardware:

  • Sapphire R9 270X 2g GDDR5
  • PCI-E Version Expresscard V8.0 EXP GDC Beast link
  • PSU 410 W

Issue: Device manager not detecting the eGPU or any unknown device.
Details:  Every thing visually seems to work, the GPU card fans are runningm EXP GDC lighting in green.
What I've tried to solve the problem:
Tried some solutions from @nando4 post: [Sticky] [GUIDE] error 12/43 & other detection
The PSU 24 pin is now connected with a wire the connects the green and the black wires means it suppose to be always on but no result.
I also switched EXP GDC the ATX to ON. and the PTD switched aswell.
Note: my PSU seems to have a functon that prevents the PSU from working unless it connected with decent load consumer. I noted this after I tried to run it with out it being connected to eGPU by simply connecting the main source of power to eGPU and connecting the [Green-Black wire] trick. It works for one second and it turns down it self. But when the EXP DDC card is connected it runs with no issue.

I looked through this forum for solutions but any one posting regarding the undetection issue the guys here share the link of  @nando4 and that's all. So if any one can see through the problem and tell me how to at least detect the eGPU?

Hello @nando4
I'm new to this and wanted to thank you for everything before I post my problems to ask for help. It seems somewhat common:
My setup falls in this category:
2.III -  error 43: running a NVidia dGPU and eGPU

Except that in my case it is for the AMD family, the dGPU M390 is the one throwing error 43 WHEN I install the Bootcamp OLD drivers(2015)

In fact the only way I can get the setup to work so far(dead M390, semi working RX580 eGPU) is by using those drivers because the AMD WHQL drivers do not detect the hardware and simply abort, with or without the eGPU connected. I can force them with the old HAVE DISK approach on Device Manager, but then the problem switched to error 12 on the eGPU.

This probably won't work, but it can't hurt to try the error 43 fixer script, even though it's meant for NVidia.

I went through the script, which is pretty well documented. It basically updates the Windows Registry for Nvidia, here:
Finding the Error:
:: Check if adapter has error code 43. If not, exit subroutine
call devset status "%HW_id%" | findstr "code 43" > nul
if errorlevel 1 goto :EOF
set NV_ERR43_FOUND=1

... some flow control....
Patch the error.
echo [%NV_adapter%] %APPLY_FIX%
reg add %NV_dev_key% /v %NV_KEY% /t %NV_KEY_TYPE% /d %NV_KEY_DATA% /f > nul

So the key is devset script...which is nothing but a redirect to either 32 or 64 versions of the devcon depending on the OS. I can't believe some would use it.

:usage
echo.&echo USAGE: devset param1 param2 .. param9 & echo.& echo A wrapper that checks if this is a 32-bit or 64-bit OS and&echo then calls the 32/64-bit devcon binary with parameters specified. devcon.exe internal name is Windows Setup API. I could try and take a look at it in Visual Studio and see what it does, or simply do a regedit search for code43...Allow me to post what I've managed to accomplish so far in my build and start using it as a reference so I don't have to repeat myself on multiple threads. For now, I don't think this is Apple's firmware thinking I have two video cards but the M390 not liking the RX580 video drivers. Somone else has the same iMAC as I do but is using the Nvidia version of the same ePGU enclosure. He says he thinks that because this particular computer doesn't carry an iGPU it isn't possible to have internal display working.

Any help?

Please try https://egpu.io/nvidia-error43-fixer

I went through your code and it all ends in a devcon binary finding the Windows registry entries where code 43 is reported for the NVIDIA drivers key. Is there a way to do the same with AMD? Thanks!
It seems obvious that using regedit will allow anyone to find them but the question is, what should they be replaced with?

It looks like it was a driver conflict. The WIndows Update process will install alternative drivers over the internet for the RX580 gpu as the official AMD drivers for Apple don't recognize the device. This was in conflict with the original dGPU. Once I installed bootcampdrivers.com Adrenaline distro that particular problem went away, the screen is actually turned off and a new problem came in, can't switch video game resolution.
Will try ONE LAST TIME with Windows Update doing everything and see how that goes. Some people shared that in their case disabling the dGPU can get you to use the internal screen but with bootcampdrivers.com drivers it just turns everything off.

Hello everyone. I have a gaming laptop(GTX 950M). And I'm using EXP GDC v8.5 with GTX 1060 3GB. It works good but I have a problem.

First, I could not disable integrated graphics in bios, because there is no option to disable it. Now I'm using eGPU with external monitor without that disable option. I also didn't use eGPU firmware. The problem is while I'm playing any game, suddenly the screen crashes and after 2-3 second, windows restarting itself. This is happening sometimes even on desktop.

Screen crash likes this photo
https://prnt.sc/n2byue

What can cause this issue?
My english is bad. Sorry for it 🙂

I had a working setup with HP 2570p and RX570 on mpcie. Then I switched to Nvidia GTX 970 and error 43 is driving me crazy. I tried all sorts of drivers, all the old driver-new driver workarounds, setting the link speed to 1.1. I tried with a second card, GTX 1070, even reinstalled Windows(10, 64 bit). The same damn issue. I also tried the app mentioned above. Nothing works!! Please help... Is the Nvidia card conflicting with the internal GPU?

Hi all,

Firstly, I am glad this has worked to get people's cards up and running on Windows 10. However, I am a little perturbed as this doesn't work for me as nothing ever does. 🙁

Windows 10 LTSC, Palto 1050, EXP GDC mPCIe version. Previously had it working via Windows 7 and Setup 1.35 and DSDT, but can't get it to work on 10.

The script does say it is fixed, but upon restart, it still 43's.

I've tried older drivers, even the one that works with 7, but to no avail.

Should I try the DSDT on Windows 10 beforehand? Would this help? Furthermore, I don't need to run Setup with this do I?

Any advice appreciated.

I have a problem, I disconnected my Pci.e on my notebook to reconnect the wireless.
After using it, I removed the wireless I connected the Pci.e again, but it is not recognizing the video card.
Please, can anyone help me.
OBS. Before that, it was working normally and I did all these steps with the computer turned off and the power goes off as well. Of course.

The system shuts down roughly 27 seconds after booting to a external monitor. Didn't see any errors on the screen. Tried both EXP GDC and the generic mpcie to pcie 16x riser. Same results with both of them.

Is this a error i'm not able to see? Should i get the 1.3x?

_GPU : GTX 960
dGPU : None
EXP GDC beast 

Before installing setup 1.35 and fiddling with it, Laptop used to detect and boot to an external monitor for 27 seconds before a sudden shutdown.
Now it doesn't even recognize the card. No matter what the order of plugging things is.

I get a blank screen if ..
plug everything in,
Switch the eGPU off,
Put PC to sleep,
Switch it eGPU on,
Try to get the PC back from sleep

Update: I can get the external display running for more than 27ish seconds which was the max I could use earlier by removing the second power source to the gpu.

Which got me thinking.. does giving power to the GPU by the PSU rather than from the EXP GDC has been the reason for all the trouble I faced till today?

👍👍 Think it is. Thanks for nando. I had no use for setup 1.35 but.. he was a awesome dude. It was worth getting the setup for his help with your setup. 

Will make a guide as soon as I can get a 2670qm 😉

I tried to find a similar problem, but didn't find in the forum.
I bought a GTX 1060, 500w PSU and a EXP GDC BEAST pci-e adapter to use as e-gpu on my Dell Vostro 5470 notebook.
But when I plug everything the notebook just don't turn on. The power led lights, but the HDD led, screen and everything else just don't. Is there any pre configuration to do?

Thanks in advance.

As the title says...my eGPU is not even detected 😥 - to be clear, this is not an error code or similar, it just never appears in Device Manager.

My setup is Dell XPS 15 L521X laptop.
OS: Windows 10 x64.
CPU: Intel i7-3632QM
BIOS: InsydeH20 v. A16, Legacy Mode
eGPU: EXP GDC Beast v. 8.4 + EVGA 600W ATX 12V power supply
Internal GPU: Nvidia GT 640M 2GB
External GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB

Using internal monitor - disabled internal card and no response from eGPU. Have connected eGPU through WLAN PCI port. The eGPU turns on and the green LED light is consistently on. However, the GPU fans don't spin and it doesn't get detected in Device Manager. Not an error code problem - it has never shown up.

I have tried: 1. reseated the GPU
2. swapped WLAN card for Beast cable
3. uninstalled PCI root complex drivers and  reinstalled PCI devices (happened automatically)

Some people recommend changing some BIOS settings. Bios is locked, thus cannot enter advanced settings. This is a problem as my internal card seems to be linked to it (was not able to backup internal GPU bios when I tried to overclock). Called dell tech support and they gave me a BIOS password but it did not work (idk if this was due to typos in the codes I gave or another reason). Clearing CMOS on BIOS did not remove password; the pass is stored somewhere else. 

I do see a list of hardware conflicts involving the PCI drivers under Conflicts/ Sharing in "System." I am not sure how to interpret this. In the interest of brevity I left it out of my post

Please recommend any suggestions. I'm very discouraged at the idea of not being able to upgrade my really lousy internal GPU. I've got a desktop (also win 10, same internal card) I can test with as well as an external monitor, but that's all the equipment I have...

P.S. Just bought nando's eGPU software and am waiting for a download link

Hi, do you still need help with fps? I have pretty much the same setup than you but with a i7 5600u and a gtx 1070. I've overclocked the gpu and now, on the external display, I get more than expected results. Be sure to have the external display connected to the graphics card and not the laptop.

Good day, I own a laptop:
Hp pavilion dv6 2155er
Motherboard Model Hewlett-Packard 3659 Socket G1 (rPGA988A)
Intel Core i7-720QM 1600.0 MHz 45 W (will soon be replaced by i7 840qm or i7-940xm)
8 GBytes of RAM (2x 4 GBytes of DDR3 SDRAM, 666.7 MHz (DDR3-1333 / PC3-10600)
SDD Kingston 480 GBytes
NVIDIA GeForce GT 230M (Chipset Codename GT216) 1024 MBytes of DDR3 SDRAM [Samsung] The laptop only has dGPU, iGPU isn't available.

I wanted to improve the graphics of the laptop and took EXP GDC with ExpressCard connection and GF 750TI 2gb graphics card.
I've updated the BIOS to Insyde F. 1C without a Whitelist, but it doesn't have the ability to switch (disable) the graphics card.
The GF 750TI graphics card is detected in the system, but has error Code 12. Installation of Nvidia drivers versions 335.23, 342.01, 382.53, 337.88 did't fix the error.
Manual "eGPU DSDT Override" (youtube.com/watch?v=zRSGHGCEGRA) failed, because after typing in CMD: "...\Downloads\DSDT>%IASL%\iasl.exe -g" is commented by "-g option is deprecated, use acpidump utility instead".
I'm running out of ideas how to connect an external graphics card to HP 2155er, tell me Your tips !
English is not my primary language
