BSOD when plugging Razer Core X Chroma into Razer Blade Stealth 2019
Drivers are up to date from what I can tell and the eGPU is working just fine, however if I stick the TB3 cable in while windows is up, the device will either immediately BSOD with error "driver verifier dma violation", or it will connect & disconnect 3 or 4 times before BSOD.
Removing the TB3 cable while windows is booted does not trigger BSOD. Restarting with TB3 Cable in works fine. It is only if I stick the cable in while the laptop's humming away.
I've tried with peripherals connected and with none connected, I've tried disabling the MX150 but still same issue
Update- I have installed a GTX 960 instead of the Radeon R9 280 with fresh drivers.
Behaviour is similar, however I no longer get BSOD upon hot plugging the eGPU into my laptop. Now the Nvidia driver is simply unrecognised and my laptop continues using the MX150 dGPU.
If i repeatedly plug in and out (giving a few mins between hot plugs) I invariably get BSOD.
The best thing however, is that from what I can tell, the very first hot plug after a reboot is successful. So if I start my comp from cold, realise I have not plugged in eGPU and then I do so- all good!
If I were to unplug my laptop while hot, show someone a funny video in another room, return and replug the system will not recognise the GTX960- and will eventually BSOD if I keep trying.
This sounds like driver conflicts. Run DDU to remove AMD & Nvidia graphics drivers. Also disable Windows auto driver install feature in DDU. Restart once all drivers are removed. When you have same brand dGPU and eGPU, it's best to have both active (check Device Manager) before installing the latest graphics drivers.
