I have a gigabyte gaming box RX580 and a Macbook Early 2011. I had the eGPU working with PurgeWrangler and everything was working great. I came home from class today and plugged my eGPU and... NOTHING. No chime from the macbook and the eGPU is completely silent and dead. I tried plugging it into a windows laptop and its not being detected there ether. Has my new eGPU met an early death?

Do a power reset. Unplug the Gaming Box from both the Thunderbolt 3 cable and power cable. Let it rest for at least 15 minutes then reconnect.
