GTX 1060 error 43 EGPU

Recommended Posts

I am using an EGPU on my Lenovo Y510p (http://imgur.com/HN51mJj). I have hooked up the GPU and booted up windows and I got the error 43 message (http://imgur.com/QfhThfh). I a using a Corsair CX600PSU and the V8.0 EXP GDC Beast EGPU enclosure (http://www.banggood.com/Mini-PCI-E-Version-V8_0-EXP-GDC-Beast-Laptop-External-Independent-Video-Card-Dock-p-1011222.html).

Disable automatic driver installation

uninstall dgpu and egpu drivers

download old nvidia driver ( i used 376.33)

reboot

install old driver

-

egpu should now work, it did for me.

if not, fiddle around by disabling gpus and using different drivers or gdc beast delay.

also, check if the egpu shows an image in BIOS.

Ok I just swapped GPUs with my brother (now I have a GTX 960). And it is working now (with current drivers), I am going to wait till there is a driver fix (if there is going to be one). Thanks for the help.

I had similar issues (even read this thread looking for help) and after a bit of trial and error I managed to sort them out. I'll describe my setup and what I did to resolve the Error Code 43.

Laptop:

Lenovo y510p with Dual Nvidia 755m (SLI)

16GB RAM

SATA SSD and NGFF SSD

Windows 10

I have recently bought the EXP GDC Beast Laptop External Independent Video Card Dock + Mini PCI-E Cable   WITH POWER ADAPTER along with a Zotac 1060 6GB AMP card.

The supplied PSU outputs 220w of which the Zotac 1060 requires 140w.

 

Before you begin - make sure you uninstall the Nvidia Laptop drivers completely

Remove Ultra Bay GFX if you have it (Should be removed by this point to get to the WiFi card)

Disable 755M & Intel 4600 GFX adaptors in Device Manager

Download and install - 368.81-desktop-win10-64bit-international-whql

Connect HDMI cable to external GFX card (critical step this one...)

 

My set up is working perfectly and is stable. I did try to go back to the 372.xx drivers and nothing worked so I went back further to 368.81

 

I hope this helps.

I was trying to install the 368.81 desktop drivers after disabling 755m and Intel graphics and got an error. It said that it couldn't find the compatable graphics hardware. What should I do?Ae55bYG.jpg

Hi,

 

Check to see if your eGPU is being detected in Device Manager as I had that issue when I rebooted and it stopped seeing my card.

Press F2 on reboot and go into the BIOS  - Check what your Graphics settings are - What are your Graphics set to?

Exit out and then boot into Windows normally and see if your external card is being detected in Device Manager. 

 

Make sure that you are downloading drivers for the Desktop Nvidia cards and not the Laptop ones.

Thanks for the reply @Contact it is set to UMA only and it is in Device Manager under microsolft basic display adapter or whatever. It's been in deceted Device Manager before and yes I am using the desktop drivers.

Try taking it off UMA only - mine isn't on that setting.

I enabled the 755m in the BIOS, then disabled it in windows. ASO1wVP.jpg

 

So then I tried installing the 368.81 DESKTOP drivers and all it did was re-enable the 755m. icq72MB.jpg

That is pretty strange...

Has your device manager ever identified the eGPU as a 1060 or has it always come up as the Microsoft Basic Display Adaptor?

 

If it hasn't ever been identified as the 1060 then there could possibly be an issue with one or maybe more of the below:

1) 1060 Graphics card

2) eGPU Adaptor (Cable not seated properly or faulty unit)

3) Power Supply Unit  (faulty rail or not supplying enough amps on the rail)

 

Easiest way to check the this would be to:

1) Try a different external graphics card (borrow one from a friend etc.)

2) Connect your current setup to another laptop

 

It is essential that Windows identifies the eGPU as the 1060 (or whatever card you have inserted) otherwise the drivers won't install.

I also have this problem the only difference is my asus laptop just cant tottaly detect my egpu you are lucky for microsoft basic display adaptor to show up.. you just have to mod/edit the nvami.inf inside the nvidia folder(nvami.inf is for asus) for other brands there is other name... im still hoping for my gtx 1070 to show up at my device manager

      Hello everyone
      I created a case for egpu using 2.5mm acrylic sheets. The first time I created a case to support a GPU + ATX psu
      Now I created another one for the GPU with an external Xbox 360 203w psu.
      the finish was not good but for my use it is already good.
       
      *both cases album
      *Construction of the second case 
      *adapting xbox psu to 8pin power (taken from 24pin)
       
      all made by hand with the tools I had.

      from Brazil.

      Hello!
       
      I have recently acquired my Dell Inspiron 15 7000, and I am interested in building an egpu setup for it. It has a USB-C port. Any recommendations/guides out there?
       
      thanks.

      I reversed the input polarity on my m15x jack after a botched psu repair. Computer worked fine, but overall power control is messed up. System only boot on both battery and psu, no battery charge, and a very low battery drain (arround 6wh).
       
      I aways had battery issues whith my 8 years old m15x after my original battery died. Bought a new one two years ago, didn't work. Checked on upower, basically no info on manufacturer, power or history. So i refunded and used the system hooked on the psu as usual. In August i bought a new one, worked flawlessly for a day. The next day the battery died from nowere. Checked upower, bus was ok, battery was charging extremely slowly (6wh), history showed subpar disharge before shutting down. I got mad at this point, decided that psu was to blame. Opened it, checked everything, noticed some wear on the male jack. Resoldered it, connected on computer. Nothing happened, so i checked the voltage. That's when i realised that i screwed up big time. I swaped the positive and negative wires. Decided that one mistake was enough, so i sent my m15x to a trusted repair shop (latter found that they just hooked the battery and gave me back as soon as it booted, they didnt even open it). Got my pc a week later, but the battery didn't charge . Worse, it was slowly discharging (same 6wh as before), and it needed both the psu and the battery to turn on. At 65%, it worked as usual for my college semester, but the battery is dead, and so is my computer. I bellieve i burned some voltage controller or something. I'm pretty competent at soldering thing's (evem smd components) when i know what to do, and i can understand simple circuit's, but when i got my hands on the m15x datasheet i got overblown. I cant make heads or tails about it. I aways lurked this forum and i bellieve your guys are the best when it comes to finding creative solutions to technical problems concerning microelectronics. I followed a guide in this forum as a teenager to upgrade this same computer to a gtx680m, overclocked stuff, got custom bios, and had a lot of fun learning. The m15x is a deprecated platform, but it's a part of my history that i dont want to let go.
      So please guys, help me.

      Hi there guys,
       
      I've been looking into getting a new GPU for my laptop (4-lane PCI-e) and enclosure (HP Omen Enclosure) but I cannot decided between the RX 5700 XT and the RTX 2070 (non SUPER).
       
      I did some price to performance calculations (higher is better) with some of the best prices I can currently get in the UK.
       

       
      The RX 5700 XT does perform better and is cheaper than the RTX 2070 (Although the 2070 does come with 2 games) but my main concern is drivers and from what I've heard NVIDIA cards work a lot better with eGPUs than AMD.
       
      If anyone has experience using both red & green or if anyone else has any other input i'd love to hear your experiences and input.
       
      Thanks.
