eGPU Causing Bootcamp Windows 10 to crash
Hi, I'm running windows 10 through bootcamp on my macbook air with an AMD Radeon WX3100 eGPU. The system has been stable for about a year until windows updated to 1909 - at which point I got an error 12 in device manager saying there were not enough system resources to run the card. I formatted my hard drive, reinstalled eGPU compatible Windows 10 as per Daniele's thread and disabled the isight/facetime camera PCIe port.
The eGPU boots up properly and works under very minimal loads, but when I run even basic models in 3D CAD software it glitches and eventually freezes after ~3 mins - my laptop screen shows the 'blue screen' citing Video Scheduler Internal Error. Then I can reboot, and the error happens again pretty quickly with only an internet browser running.
I thought it might be a power issue, but my card only draws 50W, and is not even warm to the touch.
Please help me diagnose this problem, I need to run CAD almost every day for work!
card: Radeon Pro WX 3100
eGPU driver: Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise, 19.Q4.1
power supply: 12V, 10A
enclosure: Akitio Thunder2
computer: macbook air 2017
OS: Windows 10, 1903, KB4512508 (OS Build 18362.295)
3D CAD software: Solidworks 2013
@jamesaf I would recommend checking the power connection starting with the power adapter first. I recall the AKiTiO Thunder 2 PCIe slots doesn't carry much power. If the power adapter has lost efficiency, the power to WX 3100 may not be sufficient anymore.
Okay! I've got a new power supply and I disabled another PCIe port and the system seems to be much more stable. So far so good! Thanks for your help @itsage
Got an update here. The new power supply did not solve my problem! The computer/GPU boot up and idle just fine, but freeze after 5 minutes of modelling or even web browsing as before.
The setup was entirely stable on the previous version of Windows (i think it was 1803 or 1809). I am now on 1903 build KB4512508. @itsage should I consider reinstalling an older Windows OS?
@jamesaf, I think it's a power-related issue and version of Windows won't make a difference.
SOLVED: It was a driver issue *facepalm*
Clean uninstalled the most current driver and then installed the 19.Q3 Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise driver from August 14, 2019. Has been running smoothly since.
