[GUIDE] error 12/43 & other detection, bootup, stability & performance issues
have an hp g6 and when i hookup the gdc exp 8.5 the screen will go black. i have the beast hooked up to the internal pcie slot where the wifi card used to be. is there a driver i need to uninstall or do i need to get into the bios to make this work?
Im using HP 820 G1 core i5 4th gen when i turn on my egpu my screen show only blank can please anyone tell me how to fix this..
This is the link i upload the screenshot
I Hope that someone can give me a little troubleshoot. First of all im sorry for my english, it is not my native language.
I am using an EXPGDC Beast 8.5 with a Dell DA2 Power Adapter on my T430 for about 1 Year without Problems.
Now my Laptop is not detecting the Expresscard at all. The Laptop is working totally fine, I even reinstalled Windows just to be sure that it is nothing software related.
Before i swapped the Cards, every Time i plugged the Expresscard in, my Laptop started short, switched off and started again and it worked fine.
No when I plug the Expresscard in, nothing happens. Windows detects nothing also. I tried the Graphics Card on a desktop Laptop, the card itself is totally fine.
I thougt about the HDMI to Expresscard Cable, but there has to be a signal, because the Fans on the GPU Start spinning when I hit the Power button.
Any suggestions what to do now ? A Step by Step would be highly recommended.
Hello eGPU comminty. My name us Kevin, and I a new excited eGPU user. I bought a EXP GDC Beast v8.5 PCI-e data cable for my old HP Elitebook 840 G1 (i5 core 4th generation) laptop to use it w/ a MSI GForce GT 1030 video card.
Just want to give my old laptop a few extra power to play old FPS shooters (Quake Live and CSGO) just that.
The thing is that ones I plug everithing and turn on my laptop I get my screen like this:
And nothing else respond...just remain like that. Is there any guide line to install this EXP GDC to a HP Elitebook 840 G1? I went into the BIOS but there isn´t too much to touch about disabling the integrated graphic card.
I appriciate your help!!!
hi, I just bought the adapter for a lenovo g50-45, I have a rx 5500 xt 4gb pulse and a 500w atx coolermaster power supply, I connected everything but when I turn on the notebook the external gpu does not start, how can I solve?
Lenovo G50-45 : Amd A8 6410, 4GB Ram 500GB HDD,Collermaster 500W, GTX 680 2GB
M.2 on Dell 3070 Micro with ADT-R53S
I've been looking for some time through the forum for possible answers as to why I can't get this to work.
I've removed the wi-fi card and plugged in the adt adapter. Powered the adapter with the adt supplied berg to sata cable. Plugged in the card (AmD Firepro W9000), and powered with another adapter cable, molex to 6p PCIe.
I have a separate 500W PSU. Once this is turned on the cards fans max out (I presume) until I turn on the 3070 PC. Upon doing this the fans drop right off but a loud Pico type alarm sounds.
At this point I get scared and turn it all off.
Unplugging the card I thought I'd see if the adt adapter is being seen. BIOS States there is nothing in the slot.
I've tried the disable and enable fix and I will keep digging for answers but thought it might be quicker to ask for some guidance.
Hi, I bought everything I need for an Egpu but my computer does not detect my GTS250 and GTX650. I did it on the Pcie 2.0 port of my network card. Please help me. My pc is a Dell Latitude e5440, i5-4210u.
I am new to the forum and just completed my first working eGPU system.
My successful eGPU build is on an HP8560P Laptop using the EXPGDC Beast Version 8.5 Express card with a Dell DA2 power supply and a GameMax-850W power supply.
I have the Dell power supply connect to the 8-pin connector on the Beast and the GTX-780 power connectors are connected to the GameMax850 power supply. I just did this to make sure I had plenty of power to support the GTX-780. After awhile I will disconnect the GameMax850 psu and run everything off of the Dell DA2.
I started out by reading through all the guides, tricks and tips listed in the forum that you’re supposed to look at before asking for help.
Lots of good information that answered most of my questions but after going through everything over and over again I couldn’t get past the “not enough resources error” message or the initial card detection phase until today.
I also did not do a DSDT file compile but I was getting ready to as I could not get it working.
I’ll explain step by step exactly what I did to make it work.
Here’s the build:
Laptop is a HP8560P
OS is Windows 10 Pro with 16GB of memory
1TB Crucial SSD
CPU is i7-2820QM
iGPU is AMD Radeon 6470M (1GB)
eGPU is Nvidia GTX-780 (3GB)
SAMSUNG external 27” monitor
i got this old laptop for almost nothing and upgraded the cpu to its current i7-2820QM and updated the bios and Windows 10 before I knew anything about how you could possibly add an eGPU to it.
I decided on the express card version of the Beast to try first but I also got the mini pci version to also try latter or in case the express card version wouldn’t work.
eGPU would not be detected.
Fix: Jiggled the HDMI cable on the Beast 1/3 out.
Not enough resources to use the eGPU.
Fix: Uninstalled drivers using DDU, disabled iGPU in device manager, hot plugged express card after bios startup but just before Windows full startup.
I had lots of trouble with this detection phase but here’s how I got it to detect the card.
First thing I did after getting the card detected was use “DDU” in a Safe Mode “CLEAN BOOT” (with all services disabled except Microsoft) to uninstall all the Radeon and Nvidia GPU drivers using the restart after cleaning option.
With Windows fully booted up and running and the eGPU powered up and BEAST connected via Express card (I hot connected the express card after Windows was started), I “jiggled” the hdmi connector about 1/3 out of its socket on the Beast and now it detected the external card without any problem but saw it as a “Standard Microsoft display” for which now I had two, the Radeon and the Nvidia card.
I opened the Property setting for the PC and I deselected auto update drivers from the advanced system settings hardware tab.
In the device manager I disabled the AMD Radeon 6470M.
I did not do a “Driver Update” to the Nvidia card from the Device manager.
After the Safe Mode cleaning with DDU I booted normally and installed the Nvidia drivers for the GTX-780 that I had previously downloaded (I did not do a driver update in device manager) and installed those normally.
I did not do an immediate restart when prompted after the Nvidia GTX-780 driver install, I just closed out the install to restart later.
The GTX-780 now shows up properly but still has the resource error.
I rebooted and got a black screen on both the laptop and connected display attached to the GTX-780.
I pulled out the express card with the power on and restarted the computer with everything powered up.
I saw the HP Splash screen and I waited for bios to “just” finish.
Just as Windows screen is circling around getting ready to come on I hot plugged in the Express card and the External display and LCD screen worked correctly
I pulled the hdmi cable connected to the beast
out slowly about 1/3 of the way and the system detected the eGPU.
Then I hot swapped the express card into the laptop between the bios load and Windows load, just a bit before Windows starts up
I posted my solution above.
Maybe that might work for you.
I already have video display on external monitor and the laptops LCD screen without doing a DSDT override by just extending the display in windows setting.
Now that my eGPU is working it was recommended that I do a DSDT override to be able to accelerate laptop LCD display as well as external and eliminate hot plugging the express card.
There is always a chance you can brick your system doing this so everyone needs to weigh the risk versus benefit.
For me it’s probably worth the risk because right now I have to hot plug the express card in between bios and Windows boot for it to work.
Hopefully a DSDT override will alleviate that nuisance.
I downloaded all the tools and and went to work following the guide listed in the forum by nando.
I’m using the “Intel Method”.
Everything worked well except some of the “copy and paste” commands in the guide didn’t work for me.
For instance the one to copy the compiler failed for me but I was able to copy it manually in the appropriate folder outside of the command prompt (CLI) so no biggie.
Dumped the ACPI tables.
I copied the DWord info etc in but I don’t think I got it in the correct place because when I tried to compile, it gave me an error that it won’t compile.
That’s where I’m at so far.
I’ll be looking at it again today and see if I can get that fixed. I’m sure I just pasted the info in the wrong place. Hopefully I can get that cleaned up and recompile successfully.
If so I’ll copy that to the DIY Setup 1.35 config and test it.
In the meantime I am enjoying the eGPU immensely.
