Razer Core X - Please Help

Hi guys,

I just got the Razer core x. Got an RTX 2070, installed it... seems all fine. It lights up, fans turn on.. but ONLY when the computer is restarting, or driver LESS. It is recognised in windows. It is recognised in device manager, even nvidia geforce experience.

However, it does not turn on when it has the latest driver installed. Using the razer switcher up it says "A graphics card in your razer core X does not have a compatible driver installed. Please visit the Razer Core Driver Download page and install the correct driver" I did install the Razer one but was 2 years old and still did not work.'

My computer is a HP Envy 27 B series and I have the latest thunderbolt driver installed. It is thunderbolt 3.

Any help would be much appreciated.

It had dGPU right? Gtx1050, when I’m not wrong? So it’s right using gpu switcher, I saw also xps15 user use that. Now try downloading one version Driver for dGPU from nvidia, I believe it’s also same version with driver for rtx 2070. Put somewhere on your pc, first clean install it without core connected, after that connect the core and do the same thing, see if there’s a change. On my first rtx installation with core V2 I had driver issues, a bit different though, it erased the dGPU driver after unplugging and need to restarting, after doing that the problem is gone. On first new card installation windows recognize the card also slower than after installation, it was my experience though might be different. But I think it’s worth a try.

Got it working. I didn't realise the gpu was on, as the fans don't kick in until 55 degrees! 

Only thing is I can't control the fan curve or rgb using afterburner or aorus engine. When I can when it's direct pci on my other computer.

Which rtx card is it? Nice fans behavior like my evga Black. Did you also try precision X from evga? That one can even access founder edition lightning controll, only on off though and sometimes bring it red.
