UPDATE: So i found that tweak to make Optimus  installed properly. Turns out that due to our eGPU ‘s are for a desktop environment the driver doesn’t load all the necessary files for Optimus to work properly(it does load the main Optimus file but couple more are need it as well).At least whoever try it will get better acceleration until NVIDIA fix their F@#K UP and let us use the latest drivers.I did this on 378.92(read my earlier post about how to update) and it’s working fine,i can see that there is a  difference for sure.If you ask me,it’s worth the effort.Just follow the instructions, it’s not that complicated(nothing else changed,if you need to do the “russian method” first,do that,this is just workaround to get the Optimus to work better)

WORD OF CAUTION: To whoever try. DO NOT DELETE “CatalogFile = NV_DISP.CAT” LINE OR YOU’LL NOT BE ABLE TO TO DO THE INSTALLATION !!!!!! THE REST IS OK.

Here you go:

https://gist.github.com/rplacd/39b5ab0791fe63fa27f5

Good luck !!!!!

P.S. On my system the driver didn’t install this one “NVOptimusHCloneDisabled = 1” according to the log files.I guess that’s what made the difference.

@aaznincsen Are you using mPCIe? Is the PSU on and gpu plugged in before you trying on your computer? Is the internal display turning on?

Yes, its mPCIE connected to the laptop.

I turn PSU ON, then turn laptop ON.
(I can see that the egpu draws power with a power meter)

System boots normally with the internal display.
It seems that the PCIE port 2 gets disabled:

Do I have to use bios modding to enable pcie hotplug?
BIOS version: 404

When the port doesn’t disappear:

It should still be recongnised. Did you try these steps?  https://egpu.io/forums/expresscard-mpcie-m-2-adapters/FIXED-Nvidia-GTX1050Ti-error-43-on-mPCIe-or-M2-non-hotplug-eGPU-interfaces-applicable-to-GTX10xx/

You do not need to enable hotplugging for those steps.

New 387.92 NVIDIA driver just got released.Post your feedback guys(ERROR 43,DX errors etc.)

P.S. What’s with “Awaiting Moderation” ?

Feedback: NO GO for me.Same problems like before.

Two people at Guru3D Forum reported ERROR 43 on their 980 TI’s with the latest drivers(and they using PC’s not eGPU’s)

I got 387.92 working on my GTX 980 Ti connected via ExpressCard with no problems.

BTW, I finally saved up enough $$$$ to retire my Thinkpad W520 and made the jump to Thunderbolt 3.

Just ordered a Thinkpad P51 and Akitio Node.

The complaints from Guru3D were two guys who heavily modded their vbioses which led to ERROR 43.Now check this out: “NVIDIA is aware of the problem already and working on a fix”. Looks like we are left here in the dust again.

@carage congrats on the new order.Next for me will be some small ITX build.Enough is enough.

I have an eGPU setup with a T460p Thinkpad and a GTX 560 and 1060. The NGFF.M2 slot I use is not hotplug enabled. However, the GTX 560 works perfectly fine with the new 376.33 driver, but the GTX 1060 gives error 43 with the same driver, and thus requires a rollback to 372.70 to work. Can anyone with a larger Nvidia graphics card collection find out where between the 560 and the 1060 cards drivers past 372.70 start to cause problems?

hi, i have a T460p and i want to setup egpu with it, the cpu is i7-6820hq, i have heard about whitelist problem, is yours working fine? and how is it going with gtx 970 and gtx 1060.

hi everyone. I had error 43 after reinstalling windows and forgot how i made it to work before but finally found the way again. i have lenovo t430(and x230), exp gdc beast with expresscard(no info about hotplughing) and gtx 1050 ti. the solution was to use 375.76 driver. that’s not the perfect way for those games which require latest driver, but it can be a salvation for some 1050 and 1050 ti owners who cant use 372.70 driver. It may work with other 10xx cards as well. also, it is possible that there are some other drivers that do work like this one.  
Important! in my case laptop would not boot if monitor was attached to external card when powering on. i had to disconnect the cable(hdmi in this case) to boot the laptop and plug the monitor only then.

I have a question:

I have an Asus R541U (I bought it last Xmas 2016) and want to to the eGPU method too. Do I have still with a newer Laptop problems with the nVidia 10xx series? The Hotplug is disabled. I wanna buy the gtx 1050ti, but i dont want to have the hotplug issue.

1.  Are the new nVidias cards(gtx 10xx) have still problems (with newer Laptops too)?

2. If so, should I modify the nVidia driver?

3. Or buy a used GTX 960? bcus I heard that older graphicscards dont have the hotplug problem

 

Please Help, Thank you in advance

Im German, so sorry for my english.

Hello Danny!

Since gtx 10xx cards have problems with hotplug disabled and newer drivers installed I would recommend buying gtx 960. 

I did the same thing, because gtx 1050 was not working for me, although I have tried many methods to fix the problems. Now I am waiting for gtx 960, which should work fine. The fact is, that you can still get errors (error 12), but it is possible to fix it.

There are some methods to fix problems with gtx 1050/1050ti, but it is not sure they will work properly. (In my case windows update messed up with drivers and I could not fix them again. It just did not work anymore and I gave up).

Good luck! 😉

Nvidia driver 388.13 seems to be the latest that works fine for my GTX 1060.

I used method of delete all Nvidia drivers via DDU first, install 368.81, then install 388.13.

I’ve found that i can run any drivers after i have followed this guide.

My Dell 7720 laptop has a gt650m dgpu and i have to boot up through setup 1.35 software to get my gtx 1060 to be seen in windows, setup 1.35 also disables the gt650m.

A standard windows boot loads the gt650m as normal and which allows me to install the latest nvidia drivers that also get used by the 1060.

When i boot into setup 1.35 after a standard windows boot (i.e. the gt 650m gets recognised) theres  a delay with the gtx 1060 drivers while they load up, after about 30 seconds the external monitor will start up.

I can also use both laptop screen and external monitor at the same time if i wished, just out of curiosity would this use the gtx 1060 for the laptop screen or the inbuilt hd4000?

Hello! I got gtx 960 yesterday and now I am still waiting for 6pin male to 6pin male connector. It should deliver soon. I will connect gtx 960 as soon as I get the connector. (I could connect it now, but I am not sure what would happen in this case).

I will let you know how it works as soon as I connect it.

Hi there, I have a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and about 1 year ago I managed to make it working in an eGPU setup with Setup 1.3x and Nvidia driver v375.70. This was – in January 2017 – the latest Nvidia driver working.

Now as some games aren´t working – assuming it´s a driver thing, e. g. DirectX 12 etc. – I´m wondering what´s the latest official Nvidia driver working with my hardware? What´s the current broad agreement on this?

Is it “only” v388.13 as @janver_codilan posted here some time ago?

THX, used the information with the .INF file modifications (and adopting some lines because of Win10 v1709/Fall Creators Update) to update to latest NVIDIA v390.65 driver on eGPU (GTX 1050 Ti) as well as on the dGPU (NVS 4200 M, seems like they still share the same driver). Updated because of Spectre/Meltdown and because of some newer games support.

Well i seem to have found a fix at least for me anyway

Install Nvidia Drivers 368.81

http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/geforce-368-81-whql-driver-download.html

Then restart

Install cuda 9.1

https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-toolkit/whatsnew

Then restart

Install Latest

Then Final Restart

If it works you can update without issues but don’t use DDU or you will need to start from the beggining

Like if it works so i know how many people i helped

Hello everyone!

After unsuccessfully trying to set up gtx 1050, I decided to take a break.  Now I want to set up gtx 960 instead. I have already reported about my problem, but I have not found a solution yet. That is why I decided to describe my issue again.  I know that I might sound annoying, but everything I want is to finally find a solution , because I am struggling to get my eGPU working since september 2017. I have read almost every topic about error 43 on this and other forums, but nothing helped me.


So my problem is, that I get error 43 in device manager for gtx 960. I am using newest nvidia driver (390.77). Graphic card is normally detected in device manager, but fans do not spin (as I know gtx 960 cards activate them when card is hot enough).

Specifications:

-laptop: asus x75vc
-cpu: intel i5 3230m
-eGPU: zotac geforce GTX 960 (2gb gddr5)
-PSU: DELL DA-2
-EXP GDC 8.4d; mPCIE

-6pin to 6pin cable

 

I have already tried to:
-install 370.72 driver
-set ATX power switch to ON
-set delay to 7s
-disable my dGPU (gt 720m) before installing driver

-disable my dGPU after installing driver

-different combinations of atx power and delay switch positions

-clean install windows 10 (windows is installed on UEFI)

 

 I could also try to:

-force gen1 speed using setup 1.35

-change exp gdc or 6pin to 6pin cable


What do you think, could setup 1.35 help there? If anybody has any idea what could I do, please let me know. Your help would be really appreciated. 

Thank you!

for me the easiest fix was to deinstall all nvidia stuff (drivers and software) restart the pc with eGPU plugged in and have patience till windows installs the necessary drivers automatically. there is no need for manual installation and the newest of the newest drivers.
