[GUIDE] error 12/43 & other detection, bootup, stability & performance issues
Ok short story. my egpu works just fine before on mini-pcie port until my laptop's motherboard just died. I ordered a replacement. the board i got is a bit different from the old one since I've noticed it has different bios name pattern. My problem now is that my egpu won't get detected anymore unless i do a hot-swap on the minipcie port. So i thought my bios has a whitelist now. So i tried looking for a unlocked bios for my laptop.. and luckily, I've managed to get one. Now my bios is fully unlocked. I tried other wlan cards on the mini-pcie ports and it works just fine but for some weird reason, eGPU still won't get detected unless i do a hot-swap.
things I've noticed.. the pcie port for mini pcie is not disabled nor i do i get blackscreen when booting up with egpu so definitely it's not a bios whitelist problem. I tried saving the port after a hot swap and restoring it using Setup 1.35 but no luck. I'm quiet lost on what to do now. please help
btw the adapter i'm using is this generic mini pcie-
i can confirmed my gpu and adapter is working well i tried on my spare laptop and it works just fine ony my current laptop when i do a hot-swap
@hugo_cesar_paduan, My problem was because i was using a USB hub to connect my mouse to laptop. The stuttering went away when i directly connected my moust to the laptop, i believe the hub introduced some sort of delay. But what did u mean by egpu is not detected? i can see it getting listed under the display drivers and also GPUZ shows the egpu is connected but the speeds are very low (PCie 2.0 x 1).
Good afternoon, everyone!
I'm currently attempting to install an eGPU setup as said in the title of this topic. I've seen a lot of tutorials and guides on how to connect it, and I don't think I've missed anything about the external setup itself. What my problem seems to be is that this laptop's BIOS has a whitelist and isn't enabling the M.2/NGFF input. Whenever I power the laptop on, the eGPU setup turns on for just a split second, then turns off, and while the cable is plugged (even without being directly connected to the EXP GDC adapter), I cannot use the internal keyboard, nor the touchpad, but all of the USB devices work.
Already answering the upcoming questions:
Yes, I've read all of the topics required before trying this setup out, and I've attempted all of the suggested at the topic of eGPU detection, but none of them worked out. Hotplugging it at a sleeping Windows 10 turns the display black, along with the nonworking keyboard and touchpad. Keeping the PSU working the whole process didn't do much as well. The eGPU behaviour does not change: turning on for a split second, then off again.
Yes, I've bought the DIY eGPU setup from Nando4 to help me detect the eGPU on a non-operating system level, but so far nothing has changed.
Please, if you need any other information, I'm glad to offer.
What do you guys think? Any suggestions are welcome, thanks in advance!
My specs are:

- eGPU: Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Windforce OC edition with 4 GB VRAM
- Adapter: EXP GDC Beast v8.0 with HDMI to M.2/NGFF cable
- PSU: Simple ATX with 450W output
I have been using egpu for half a year now. Changing from expgdc to a custom made egpu adapter make so much better results but still have one bugging issue. It's not a normal blackscreen. When it happens the screen goes black first then it will give me some random plain color on my screen + freeze sound, the sound the was playing when it happened. Anybody have any ideas or what should I do? Please help me
Hello everyone. I'm currently attempting to install an eGPU but there is problem with my GPU or adapters. When i plug the egpu adapter to the NGFF slot, wifi port become empty. My laptop is HP Probook 450 G3 (i5-6200U 16GB RAM) EGPU - AMD HD6670 . Any idea how do i fixed this issue?
My adapters ;
I've acer VN7 specs is, i5 4210H and gtx960m
Recently I get MSI armor rx570 and eGPU adapter then follows step which i found on youtube but after all done I just get a black screen.
What I tried
-deactivate gtx960m in device manager
-install rx570 adrenaline
-change some bios setting (currently settings are here https://imgur.com/a/xw5SE13 )
Not sure but if somehow I reach the advanced bios (idk how i already dig in google but i get nothing) I can disabled the PXE Boot to LAN. Anyway has anyone have an idea?
Good evening, I go by the name of Black0ut.
This afternoon, I received my last part (an EXP GDC mPCIe dock) for my external gpu setup. Hardware is running fine but when I got hit with this error code in Device Manager "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)", I broke down. I've literally sat down for 2 hours thinking to myself, have I wasted months of money and time (shipping) all for nothing. I couldn't bear the site of seeing the damn card's fan run but not doing shit for me. I found this site and seeing that there are a multitude of experts on such affairs, I can only ask for you assistance as a brother just trying to get off intel's piece of **** stock integrated graphics. Maybe modding bois? Maybe cleaning my drive. I have no clue.
I'm attempting to run a GTX 1660 on an HP notebook and it's been a struggle. I don't think I'll probably sleep.
If you have knowledge to spare, I am extremely grateful for it.
Hi I have a dell Inspiron 5767. Got the exp gdc v8.5 with the NGFF cable. I’m using an RX 570 and a Corsair VS 450. When I boot up the GPU’s fans are spinning but it is not detected in device manager. And I don’t get any black screen. What am I doing wrong ?
I have a windows MR headset I want to try so bad. Unfortunately the laptop doesn’t have any display ports. So i opted to setup an external GPU. But i am now facing this problem. Is this related to the software? I will try using windows 10 18xx now. Thank You!
Edit: Tried Windows 10 1903 V1 as suggested in one of the guides, didn't work. The GPU starts when the laptop is turned on, but nothing in the device manager. Tried disabling Integrated NIC in the bios as well. Guess I'll just have to build a PC... :/
I've followed the instructions from "[GUIDE] error 12/43 & other detection, bootup, stability & performance issues", specifically section 5:
5. i) eGPU dectection: mPCIe/M2 eGPU doesn't get detected - True of my setup
Likely due to BIOS whitelisting preventing the port from being enabled when a non vendor device is detected. Overcome by booting with the wifi card and then hotswapping in the eGPU. That way the BIOS will enable the mPCIe port to work. A few ways to do that:
1. Boot with wifi card into Windows, sleep system, swap wifi card for mPCIe eGPU adapter and ensure eGPU is powered on, resume system. Do a device manager scan in Windows. Is the eGPU detected? - Tried this and my screen just goes black and the power light flashes amber and gives a code of 3,7.
2. Boot with wifi card into nando's eGPU Setup 1.35 *carefully* hotplug the eGPU adapter in place of wifi card. Hit F5 to rescan the PCIe bus. Is the eGPU detected? - I bought Setup 1.35 today but I've yet to receive an email with instructions on how to download it.
If this enables detection then avoid this tedious hotswapping by seeking a unwhitelisted modified BIOS for your system from say http://www.bios-mods.com OR test the nando's eGPU Setup 1.35 PCI ports->undo_whitesting feature. - This option seems risky and I'd like to rule out any possibility of Setup 1.35 working.
I'm at a loss here and I don't know how to proceed. I've documented my progress so far with video and can share for context if needed. Otherwise I'm reaching out to the community here to share your experience and expertise in hopes of making this come through.
