[GUIDE] error 12/43 & other detection, bootup, stability & performance issues
following a guide I purchase all the components to install an external GPU to my Thinkpad e560 Laptop.
This is the guide ->
The Controller are [NGFF Version] V8.0 EXP GDC, The GPU are at ASUS Radeon R9 290 DirectCU OC-II R9290-DC20C-4GD5. I connected everything correctly, the power supply and GPU work when I turn on the notebook but the GPU is not detected. The pc got stuck in the windows 10 start screen, sometimes it stop with the black screen and now after n attempts windows 10 starts but the GPU is not detected. On the thinkpad Bios there isn't possibility to disable the PXE Boot but I uninstalled the drivers as a guide. What can I do? It seems more of a software problem to me.
I can't disable PCI port as seems the wifi card is connected to "Complex root PCI express".
If i try "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?" I get black screen and blinking caps lock.
Is this something to work on? I don't know what to do now. I am not able to modify the bios and I don't know if nando tool can work...@nando4 can you give me a hint?
i have an issue with the following Setup...
Laptop: Medion Akoya P7653
- Intel® Core™ i7-8550U Prozessor
- Windows 10 Home
- 43,9 cm (17,3") FHD Display
- NVIDIA® GeForce® MX130
- 128 GB SSD & 1.500 GB HDd
egpu:exp gdc beast dock8.5 with NGFF M.2
Powersupply: Netzteil Dell OptiPlex D220P-01, DA-2 Serie, P/N: 0M8811, 12V / 18A / 220W
When i startup the laptop, the card is not detectet. I try it with another powersupply from my pc - works fine.
Here is the problem. Today i´ve try ist again with the dell powersupply. And the card was detected. Iam very happy with it. Change the Setup to another Room, bootup my laptop....
No Card are detected. On past, the Card work sometimes and do not the other times. Is there an issue with not enough power for the card? But why do detected the card for some times.
Thanks in advance for your help and sorry for the bad english 🙂
i tried asking help in /r/egpu but the subreddit is pretty slow.
so now im here and have been frustrated for the past 5 hours.
- Dell inspiron 3521
- Intel(R) Core i3-3217U
- iGPU Intel HD 4000
- Win 10
- Geforce GT 620
The main issue i have right now is that the GPU wont show up in my device manager, which obviously means my laptop isnt detecting it. i've read that dell laptops normally dont whitelist their wifi slots so i think im safe there. probably.
My PSU is running fine, i used a jumper to keep it on, my GPU is spinning and currently hooked up to a tv with an HDMI.
and still i have no luck. turning off the PSU while its connected doesnt change anything either.
I'm pretty new to this whole thing, so any help would be appreciated.
i've tried doing some of what was said here [GUIDE] error 12/43 & other detection, bootup, stability & performance issues | Expresscard, mPCIe, M.2 eGPU but to no avail.
but when i turn on my GPU and power on the laptop, it doesn`t response anymore.
I did everthing but no change.
is here anyone who connect successful?
and what should i do for my GPU to connect?
ASUS X55U GTX1650
maybe I'm a little bit late to the party, but I am really struggling with a black screen while booting (before entering the bios) with an attached exp gdc eGPU. When I boot with an attached eGPU, the fans start spinning, the exp gdc lights up (in green), but the display remains black. After some time, the notebook fan is spinning up, too. It seems, that the machine is doing something, but the booting process was aborted nevertheless. But first things first:
I recycled a broken Acer aspire VN7-571g with the following specs:
- Processor: Intel i7 5500U @ 2x2,4Ghz
- Ram: 12 Gb
- dGPU: GTX 950M
- eGPU: GTX 960
- Exp Gdc Beast NGFF (A + E) 8.5
The notebook comes with a broken display and keyboard, so is just dismounted the motherboard onto a wooden plate and attached everything.
What did i already tried?
I followed this guide. The only way I could get the GPU recognized by the device manager is booting into the system with the wifi card attached, put the computer into sleep, swap the wifi card with the exp gdc and wake the machine up again. This leaves me with error 12. I know that i can fix this error with setup 1.35 software from nando4 (which i bought already), but it seems that i can't get into the setup with an external keyboard . Nevertheless it is not as comfortable to hot-swap the wifi card with the external gpu every time I want to play a game so my goal is to get the eGPU detected while (or short after) the booting process.
To get the setup 1.35 working I reinstalled windows in legacy mode, which interestingly changed the behavior of the "black screen": The screen is now not just black anymore, it shows a blinking cursor in the far up-left corner.
I know that i am not the only one facing this problem. There are many forum posts out in the Internet, but not anyone has seem to reach a solution for this problem. My next step would be to short the bios at any point in order to change some hidden settings (can this whole problem be caused by a whitelist issue?). I found this tool to change some bios values without flashing a completely new one. Even if i can change some bios values which of them should i try to get my setup working?
Although I am new into bios or eGPUs, I am not completely new into x86, disassembling and hardware architecture in general.
Hi guys I need help. I have this adapter : pce164p-no3 ver 006c and I would like to connect Graphic card to my toshiba.
Model : Toshiba C850 - 1LK
Current BIOS : Insyde Corp. 6.80 01.10.2013
Motherboard : PLCSF8 (Manufacturer: Intel, Chipset: Sandy Bridge, Southbridge: HM76)
Processor: Intel i5
Unfortunately looks like my bios doesnt boot when I connect the eGPU. I guess the problem is I didnt flash a modiffied/unlocked bios.
Do anyone have unlocked BIOS to this laptop ??
tl;dr: help exp gdc wont output in external display
After a lot of painstaking hours of figuring how to get this to work, i finally managed to get the EXP GDC to work my GT 640 to my Dell Laptop inspiron 3521. but i encountered a problem, The performance is absolute garbage, granted the card is 8 years old, but it's a hundred miles better than my Intel HD 4000.
Someone told me that using the internal monitor isnt a good idea, and that i should connect it to an external monitor. which i have, but for some reason the external monitor doesnt show anything and remains blank, The HDMI cable is connected to the eGPU and results in nothing.
Am i missing something?
I currently set it all up, and had to skip the bios wlan settings because there literally were no options for that in the bios settings for my toshiba laptop. the gpu was running and i installed drivers for the gpu, so now its recognized on my computer, i just can't test any games out because im still waiting on a wireless wifi adapter to come.
