[GUIDE] error 12/43 & other detection, bootup, stability & performance issues
I have an HP Envy x360 u011dx laptop with an i7-4510u CPU and 16GB RAM running Windows 10. I'm trying to connect a GTX 1050Ti to its mPCIe port (where the WiFi originally was). When I start the computer with the cable plugged in, both the laptop screen and the HDMI monitor on the eGPU are black, not even the backlight turns on. I see disk activity that stops eventually, so that suggests that the computer is booting. I tried this setup with a different laptop a couple hours ago and it worked great, so I know that my GPU, EXP GDC, PSU and cables are good. When I boot with my external power supply off but all the cables plugged in, it runs normally.
What I've tried:
-All the combinations of ATX power and PTD switches (6 total combos), same result each time. When the ATX power switch is off, the GPU fans do turn on when I turn on the computer.
-Booting with the PSU off, then pausing boot by pressing esc. Then, I turned the PSU on and continued booting. It worked normally and nothing new showed up in device manager. I also tried pressing f8 and f12 during boot, but it starts so fast there isn't time for them to register. When I had GRUB2 installed for Ubuntu I could occasionally get f8 to work, but now I have only Windows.
-Booting with the WiFi card in, putting the computer to sleep, swapping it out for the eGPU. When I wake it up, both the screens stay black.
I also tried installing the NVIDIA driver after each step in the hopes that it would find the card. Each time it said my system didn't have compatible graphics hardware.
Any suggestions on where to go from here?
UPDATE: It works with Ubuntu 18.04 with Nouveau or proprietary drivers, but I can't use the laptop screen while the eGPU is plugged in. That's not a major issue, but my end goal is to get it working on Windows. I tried putting my Windows SSD into the laptop it worked on and installing the NVIDIA driver and nando4's code 43 fix. It worked again on that laptop, but still no luck on my main one when I put the SSD with the driver back in.
I have a portable Asus ROG G75VX device connected to an external GDC8.4 EXP cutter
The GTX 980 Ti graphics card does not turn the screen black and I can not even get into the BIOS
same happens to me, i cant boot the laptop even with just the cable connected to my laptop. laptop wont boot, its just the black screen with blinking caps lock. does anyone have a fix??
So...guys, I got an corsair PSU, and now i have no EMI noise, at least i cant notice it, even in gen 2 and got no crashes after playing overwatch and nier automata for about 3 hours... so maybe this is it..
@djamalovic If the fans on your 980Ti don't turn, then you probably don't have power going to the card. Make sure the power supply you're using is strong enough and that all the necessary 6-pin connectors are properly plugged into the PSU and the GPU. Also, switch the ATX PWR switch on your EXP GDC so that the graphics card is always on and doesn't wait for the computer to boot up. Once you've gotten the fans spinning on the graphics card, plug it back into your computer and keep trying.
I am having a problem with my exp gdc, i bought the M.2 M Version, the problem i am facing is that i cant see my card on device manager.
Has anyone faced this issue before ? I tried too look on the forum but i didn't find anything useful.
I have a HP Pavilion Power 15-cb003ng. It has an integrated intel GPU and a GTX 1050.
I have a 650W Power supply that I bridged the Power on signal to ground permanently, so the power supply is always on.
I cannot install my 1080 Ti card without getting an error 43. Tried the old driver method as well.
I've tried the nvidia code 43 remover script and it says my card is already patched 🙁
I can't change BIOS hotplugging settings with EFI shell, it gives an error and reading the variable 0x1E7 for my PCIe Root port 9 yields 0x01 which should mean enabled (?!)
Is there anything I can do or is my experiment over?
