[GUIDE] error 12/43 & other detection, bootup, stability & performance issues
@tom_b, Thanks for the tip. I turned on the tiny switch on the GDC that enables the device to use ATX power, and at least now it's detected. I'm having issues with error code 12, and currently installing https://egpu.io/egpu-setup-13x/ to set it up. However, I'll also downgrade the bios as the reboot is still an issue with the graphics card attached. Let me know if there is a easier way to solve error code 12
Hey, everyone! I am trying to make an eGPU setup with a GTX 1060 I have laying around. I am using a regular ATX power supply with a standard 24 pin connector. I recently learned that the 24 pin needs to be connected for the power supply to even turn on. I am using an ADT-Link R43SF http://www.adt.link/product/R43SF.html to connect the 1060 to my laptop, and it doesn't have a 24 pin slot. Is there a way to get the power supply to turn on with only the 6 pin to the GPU and 4 pin to the adapter connected? I've considered the paper clip method, but is that even safe? Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
@le-monke, buy a switch that connects to the 24 pin connector
Hello! I've had a GTX 1050ti since October and it had been working friend on my eGPU for my HP Notebook 15ay0wm for about 9 months but ever since a Windows update on 4/9, my GPU stopped appearing, i ran the error 43 tool and that worked but ever since then i've been experiencing hard crashes identified as Kernal Error 41 in Event viewer. I tried many methods but couldn't seem to fix the issue. On July 9th in did the same but before shutting down and rebooting (as it normally would) I heard a somewhat loud popping noise. Ana's upon starting up the computer again the GPU could not be found. I hit "show hidden devices" in Device Manager and my GTX 1050ti came up but with error 45 stating the device is not connected although the fans were spinning and lights were on on the actual graphics card. I then panicked and uninstalled the drivers as i saw in a couple tutorials but of course now I can't reinstall the driver. Any idea if this is a hardware issue that i will need to replace ? If so how can I determine if it's the graphics card, the egpu dock or the pci-e cable, or pci slot that's gone bad. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You can connect the 20pin ATX power connector in the 24pin socket, or the CPU power connector in the 4-pin socket marked "CPU" on the ADT-Link R43SG.
If I hook up my hd 6570 egpu with my x220 windows 10 will there be any problems that I will encounter or should I just downgrade to windows 7 for more easier?
Hi, I'm new to egpu stuff, I've this setup and it boots randomly, when it boot, it works great, I can run multiple games and benchmarcks for hours and everything is perfect, with the monitor pluged at the eGPU or iGPU, there is no issues, I can put to sleep and reboot as well. The problem is, it doesnt always boot, more not then yes, I've like 10% of a success boot, with no cable changes at all, ive tried the R43SG switches and nothing, power to the egpu first does not help. Here is the setup:

Hi, I made this account to request help on this topic. At the end of last month I purchased an EXP GDC Beast v8.5c to increase my specs for light gaming. Upon arrival it seemed to work after a bit of troubleshooting and driver installation. However, now for some reason I cannot get the GPU to detect in Device Manager or elsewhere. I have scoured the internet for the past three days and tried every available solution I can think of, to no avail. (Ex: Driver installation failed due to installer not detecting the GPU, help forums including error 12 and 43 useless, DDU did nothing, add legacy hardware adds useless Microsoft Basic Display Adapter that appears regardless of whether the GPU is connected, BIOS ExpressCard gen 1 does nothing, etc etc) I am a bit disappointed as this project was the result of a lot of saving and planning. Could anyone help me out here? Nothing seems to work and I am losing hope.
