Same result as VOD, without kext or disabled makes no difference, still black screen.

What about changing the resolution settings? Try mirroring/non-mirroring mode? Use option to optimize for external display? We should play around with all graphics options to see if there's something that triggers success.

I had the same black screen issue I had to download SwitchResX and enable the helper application and change the external screen from "Billions of Colors" to "Million of Colors" issue went away, If I revert back to "Billions of Colors" black screen come back this is on an Acer X34

I've updated the first post with a list of successes, successes after hotplug fix, and failures. I'm trying to see what is common to all the people who are getting black screen errors (me included). A common thread seems to be MBP 2016/2017 + GTX1060/1070 combo.

madjazz reported that "With SIP fully disabled everything is working fine." Can anyone else with the black screen error report if they have SIP fully disabled or just "-without kext"?

EDIT: Another thing I've experienced is that during shutdown, my internal monitor turns fully cyan for a second or two before shutting down. This is regardless if eGPU is attached or just an external TB3 monitor. Has anyone else experienced this?

SIP: without kext only, but I will try the other method shortly and report back

internal display: have not see a cyan screen, and I can't recall at exactly which step I saw it but at one point I did get a red screen for like a split second. Didn't think much of it at the time but I'll keep an eye out second time around. Only going to test with LG display this time as it's clearly not linked to display brand or connection type (at least here).

To Excubitoro's point, I also tried the tests I noted earlier both as a display mirror and a second display, did not change either behavior listed.

Two driver related questions:

1. Whats the most reliable way to uninstall the drivers so I can attempt to reinstall them if needed?

2. Anyone know how to get rid of the error shown below? Not in startup items. Not sure where it's coming from. Actual preference panel is intact and usable.

I get the cyan Screen. Yeah think it’s tb3 related. Get it with LG 5k and 23 inch ACD (mini display to tb3). 

 

Always had it, even before this.

Confirmed: using csrutil disable does not change earlier noted behaviors.

One minor clarification: even though the secondary screen is dark it does show cursor movement, just nothing else. Gathering Windows, moving windows around from the main screen, none of that works. The only thing that the connected display will show is a cursor. And in the end you are forced to restart.

Also this time the forced restart caused red screen artifacts (about a 50px wide line across the screen that then turned at a right angle, and then disappeared. So some weirdness there.

I tried switchresX , but had sip active so couldn’t install the helper. It didn’t work without it in any case, just got errors and restart when trying to log in with egpu attached.

anyone with a MacBook Pro 2016 15” and 1060/1070 that got it to work with sip disabled and changing colors to millions?
