Hi all and merry Christmas / happy holidays

 

I bought myself an unknown laptop. It is called Vision Computer, but has no other name. CPU-Z says the mobo is PBL21, and apparently some Clevo laptops and IBuyPower laptops has this mobo.

Anywho, it works, it's fast and was cheap. It has a 4 core 8 thread intel I7 2720QM, 16 gb RAM, Nvidia gt 540m, ssd and a screen. Note that it doesn't have an iGPU only dGPU.

 

First I tried to just plug and play. Didn't succeed.

 

Secondly I did a successful DSDT override, got the large memory, but nope. 

 

Then I tried some stuff with the DIY setup 1.30 although most of the time, it couldn't connect to the eGPU.

 

I have successfully installed the drivers, when the eGPU was detected correctly. But it doesn't want to play ball.

 

Some advice would be nice. :)

Hello
Are you using the eGPU it on an external monitor? As you dont have an iGPU, it will be easier to get it working with one.
And which graphics card are you trying to get working?

Hi and thanks for replying

 

Yes I am using an external monitor. I forgot to mention that. But still no image on screen.

 

The eGPU is an R9 290 from sapphire.

It worked before on my other laptop.

I managed to install the eGPU driver again. I still have the large memory configuration, but the system keeps recognizing it as HD8600/8700M and keeps giving me the code 45 (not plugged in). The DIY consequently doesn't detect my eGPU. 

Can someone please help?
