newbie day 2 egpu not mounting 2017mbp 10.14 gigabyte 580 ideas?

Hello group, yesterday I had my egpu running well all day. Today I woke up and turned it on and although I hear the small fan my gigabyte is not mounting.

I was reading the apple support and it should mount since this is a 2017 mbp with usb-c built in. Wondering if anyone has any advice, I've tried unplugging and restarting but so far nothing. The aorus software says waiting for device. I have tried two cables but again nothing mounting any advice would be appreciated. I tried running the set egpu script as well.


thanks, David

@dfphoto, hi David, I think this might be an issue with your Gaming Box, which is quite common, IIRC you have to "reset" it by unplugging all cables and leaving it for ten mins. Give that a bash (also give it a google to check instructions, I dont own one but remember reading about that being an issue).
