[Sticky] [GUIDE] Generic Windows 10 Solutions for eGPU BSOD, Crashing, System Freezing and Stuttering - (Link State Power Management, TdrDelay & TdrDdiDelay, NVIDIA Power Management Settings)
@boltoway, I can open GeForce Experience but not Nvidia Control Panel.
I am trying to open from my laptop screen which is the primary and main screen. But I tried to open Nvidia Control Panel while attached to my eGPU and external monitor.
Nothing happen and nothing open when I click on my Nvidia Control Panel
I wouldn't be suprised if it didn't open on your laptop screen, but it should work on your external monitor if it is connected directly to your eGPU.
I would recommend running DDU and doing a fresh driver installation now that your RTX card is working, if you haven't already.
For the record
problem solved !
that was just a f*****g driver issue …
Went back to the July drivers and everything goes like a dream !
it has been a lonely conversation but maybe it will be helpful for anybody who don’t think to just try to rollback to older drivers !
see you guys !
I'd like to confirm there seems to be a driver issue for all nvidia drivers so far post 472.12 causing cpu overusage in certain games severely bottlenecking the gpu. Appears to be apparent in some games but not others, noticed in Cyberpunk & Red Dead Redemption 2 so far but not games like battlefield v/Jedi Fallen Order... Cyberpunk becomes very stuttery and red dead's frames are essentially cut in half. Hopefully this is addressed in the future but last few nvidia driver updates havent so far.. I'm running a 3060ti in a Razer Core X with an 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-1165G7 btw. Given how cpu limited egpu setups usually are this is a somewhat worrying trend..
And for the record tried a bunch of the new drivers after full driver uninstalls/clean installs etc etc, 472.12 is the last driver this wasnt an issue in. All the 49x drivers have the issue, read somewhere they're now DCH drivers meaning you're forced to use the Microsoft store nvidia control panel ap now which may be a factor but who knows..
